The Good News

The Winds are Blowing
John 3:8 states “ The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof , but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth…”

 During the month of March each year we look to the sky expecting the winds to blow. After all, the winds blow every March so why should this year be any different. What we fail to realize is that the winds are always blowing. We may not see or hear the winds but there is always a moving of the wind. The Spirit of the Lord is the same. We may not see or hear the moving of his Spirit but be not deceived, His Spirit is moving.

 On the day of Pentecost the wind was evident. The Scripture states “suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” On that feast day in Jerusalem all the city heard of the commotion and came to see what happened. God used this moving of His Spirit to speak to the masses that day in Israel. In contrast I Kings 19:12 states that God moved as “a still small voice”.

 When God chose to speak to one man named Elijah, He moved in a manner that only Elijah heard. While we want God to move in the supernatural so that it can be seen by the masses, if we will stop and listen, the wind may be blowing to where only we can hear. Yes, the wind is blowing. Man cannot direct the wind nor harness it. Neither can we, the Spirit of the Lord. He moves in His own time, His own direction and in His own will. Since we look to the sky anticipating the moving of the wind we should always look to the Lord expecting His Spirit to move. We should not be surprised when we do not see Him move- We should not be surprised when we do mot hear Him move- after all He is always moving in His own will and direction as He listeth.

 We just need to keep working till the Lord comes and understand we cannot predict the wind, neither can we predict the Spirit of the Lord. But be not deceived, He is moving, The Winds are blowing!

Keep the Faith,
