Back to our Bible stories, so interesting and so filled with account after account of God’s relationships with us and His providence, grace, mercy and love. This is what is called the story of the “Tower of Babel”. After the flood God told the son’s of Noah to “be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.” What they were doing in building a tower in Shinar was against God’s will and plans for their lives. How often when we get outside of God’s plans and will for our lives do we find ourselves blocked from something God doesn’t want us to do? We might believe that we are within God’s will but all of a sudden wham – a brick wall goes up that nothing we do will penetrate it. Sometimes people will ask how to determine if something we are doing is God’s will and I always tell them to look in Scripture for examples of what it is we want to do. God is pretty clear in His Word as to what is acceptable to Him and what is not. The son’s of Noah were in direct disobedience to God. At times I have been blatantly and directly disobedient to God and there goes the wall up stopping me. Other times God has let me go down the path I wanted to disastrous results. Believe me it is way easier to try to find His will and do what He wants rather than to wallow in the miry pit of our own plans.
