Hot or Cold?

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” Isaiah 30:21.

When I was a little girl my sisters and I would play a game where an item was hidden, and the winner was the one who located that item.  As each of us would begin moving around the house, the one who hid the item would tell us if we were hot or cold.  The success of finding the hidden treasure was to stay on the one step until we were told which way to move.  Was my step to the right hot or cold?  If I moved backwards was I closer or further away?  It was imperative to only focus on one step at a time.  The hidden treasure would be located by the patience and obedience of moving step by step.

This children’s game speaks volumes relating to discovering our God-given destinies.  We cannot be like impatient little children, running around aimlessly guessing at the hiding places.  We must stay on our step until God instructs us to move to the other.  Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit we will hear, ‘You are moving away from your destiny with that step’… ‘You have just gotten closer to the calling on your life with that move.’ 

Throughout the Bible, God rarely showed the complete picture when calling His children to their God ordained purposes.  Instead, His call was given with vague invitations… ‘Come… Follow me… Go… I will show you…’   God’s primary desire is intimacy with each of us and not the end results.  God doesn’t need us to accomplish His purposes, but invites us to fellowship and participate with Him in accomplishing His purposes.  Like any game, the real adventure is in the pursuit and the interaction between the participants.

We must allow God to be master over every step we take as He leads us to our spiritual destiny in His kingdom.  So whether you step onto the next stone keep the other foot grounded until God tells you whether you are hot or cold.
