There are two types of people in this world, those who chase after wind and those who are like wind. The natural man, the normal person, the one who is not born again of the Spirit of God, chases after when. He lives, he works, he strives, he does not have direction, he does not know where is going, and he does not know where he will end up. Everything that he does leads to nothing. He dies, he goes into the grave, the grass grows over him and the wind blows over him; in the end his life was a waste because he has no hope, he has no future he is forgotten and he perishes. All his endeavors, everything that he worked for comes to nothing, because all of his life he was chasing after wind.
However the person who is born again of the Spirit of God is like the wind. We read in John chapter 3 verse 5 Jesus Christ said “Truly, truly I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, you must be born again. The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it but you do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Every person who is born again, such a person has a purpose, he has a destiny he has a future, and that is why Jesus also said, I read from Matthew chapter 6 verse 25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life as to what you will eat, what you will drink nor for your body, as to what will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air that they do not sow nor reap nor gather into barns and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?” For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.”
If we belong to Jesus Christ, if we are born again and we have become children of God, we do not need to chase after wind. We go after Jesus, we follow after Him because He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He directs our footsteps and He takes care of us, but we need to go after Him. We need to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit; as the apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8 verse 14 “for all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” If we are led by the Spirit of God then we all like the wind; we do not chase after wind. We go after Jesus and we are led by the Spirit of God and we know that He supplies in all our needs, He guides us, He teaches us and He uses us for His purpose. We have a purpose, we have a direction, we have a hope, we have an expectation, to enter the kingdom of heaven and therefore we strive and we follow after Jesus Christ every day. We are like the wind because He takes us where He wants to use us. The world cannot understand us because we are not chasing after wind. We are following after Jesus Christ, we are like the wind.
Dear friend are you chasing after wind? Are you part of the rat race? Are you chasing after the things of this world? Do you have no direction? You don’t know where you are going to end up. Then seek Jesus Christ; follow Him, repent and be baptized, be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, then you will be like the wind because you will be guided by the Holy Spirit. You will have hope, a future, a destiny you will have Jesus Christ.
May Jesus bless you.
