Look Beyond Changelessness
When hope stumbles in starvation and is deferred to the point of heartsick, it is hard to get excited about “looking again.” Realistically, it might be difficult for some to catch the “go look again” zeal just because they are drained by time and waiting. That particular event in 1Kings 18 was the completion of a three year ordeal. When changelessness lasts longer, like decades, it might take a cattle prod to get us to look again, right? Empty expectations pile up like empty cans (and you can at least sell the cans.) Worn-out hopes won’t even salvage anything by the pound. Nevertheless, consider Melissa’s “Let It Rain–Go Look Again” song a release of an official challenge to believe God is bigger than the debris of experience. Even if you are kicking the cans of empty expectations, dare to go look again until a “cloud” of hope appears. Dare to hope God is gonna show up and you be determined not to miss the first clue.
