Devotion of the Day

“Where It Listeth”

The wind bloweth where it listeth.
John 3:8

Why is preaching a delight one day, while the next day the chariot wheels drag heavily? Why does the same sermon bring amens one time and yawns the next? Why does one man in church see the heavenly vision, while the one beside him is bored to death? Why does the revival lightning strike there instead of here, then instead of now?

There are many factors, but add them all, and still you are left with an X if you leave this out: “The wind bloweth where it listeth.” The Spirit is sovereign to do as He wills. He is not capricious nor does He ignore other factors, but He has the last word.

His movements cannot be charted. Jesus said we cannot determine the whence and where of the wind.

But we can put up our wind mills and be ready!
