As I watched a single cloud float across the sky, the word of the Lord came to me saying, “Calvin, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a cloud floating in the sky.” Then the Lord said to me, “The cloud makes no effort of its own. It only goes where it is propelled by the wind. So it is with my servant who moves in my Spirit.”
So I asked the Lord, “How can I learn to live in such freedom?” And the word of the Lord said, “Trust in me and you will have abundant freedom.” This is God’s simple wisdom.
Contemplating creation will sometimes reveal the wisdom of God. After all, creation is of God’s own design and God is still at work in all creation. But for me to trust God with the faith of a cloud is more than I can do. That may take more contemplation. Lord, help me surrender to your simple wisdom.
