Outdoor Truths - Move When God Says Move

outdoortruths 01 300KENTUCKY (11/11/13) - While November usually can't compare to the colder days of January and February, it can still get really cold. But if one is to have the best opportunity at a big buck, he has to get out in it. He just better be prepared. What I have noticed over the years, however, is that I seem to manage the cold pretty well, but what I am never ready for is the wind that may accompany those cold temperatures. I had rather hunt in 20 degree weather with no wind than 30 degree weather with the wind. And no matter what the weather lady says the wind chill is, it is always colder than her predictions. When I hunt in the Midwest, it is especially bad. I've also noticed there is really no wind that is ever comfortable. I have sat for days with a cold wind blowing directly in my face. My chapped lips and wind-burned face are proof of those days. And I hate it when it blows from behind because it seems that I can never keep my neck warm. During the cold days, the wind determines my ability to stay in the stand more than anything else. It is the greatest motivation to move. If it continues to blow, one gets so uncomfortable that moving is the only option.

It is no coincidence that Jesus compared the Holy Spirit to a wind. And when the Spirit first came on the scene, Luke, a gospel writer, said it sounded like a violent wind. Again, this is no coincidence. While the Holy Spirit lives within all believers, there are times when His activity is especially felt. You may not see it or even know at first what it is, but before too long you will recognize an uneasiness or an uncomfortableness. And with a gentle inaudible voice, He will let you know it is Him and He wants your attention. He has a word about something in your life. It may be a word concerning a move He wants you to make or something that He wants out of your life. You can try to resist, and sometimes you can, but the price to stay and ignore this nudging will be one that you will never recoup.

So are you feeling that nudge right now? Is the Wind making it uncomfortable to sit where you are? Have you been uneasy and wondered why? Don't take it lightly. If it is important enough to God to get your attention, then He must have something very important He wants to do in your life. And remember, He always wants what is good and best.
