Prophesy Can Be Topped

I was reading Amos today and saw this:

“The Lord GOD has spoken;
who can but prophesy?”

This really struck me.  In other words, if you could do the most impressive thing possible (tell the future), you are only peeking at what God has put into motion.  Reading the newspaper for tomorrow, and writing the article are not the same thing.

It’s a reminder to me about God’s sovereign hand in the world (macro) and in my life (micro). Since we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, it seems the wisest course of action is to tap into what God is doing and leave your plans behind.  He is good.  He is for you.  But he is also for His glory and that is an important and beautiful thing.
