It’s irritating really. No Fred Astaire, he alters his course when he realizes he misjudged your direction and ends up doing the four-step, cutting off your path and becomes a permanent obstacle while he backs his rear end in another direction.
God can probably relate to the annoyance. It’s something that I frequently find myself doing with Him. I start to move where I think He is taking me and end up ahead, leading when I should be following, impatience the curse that drives me. That makes me an obstacle to what God wants to do and the time wasted in having to backtrack, not to mention the time it takes to clean up the messes I make going the wrong way only serves to further delay what I was so eager to achieve in the first place.
The lesson? Wait. Wait on the Lord.
“And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.” Hebrews 6:15
