The Texas Cow

The Texas Cow

I often think of a certain cow I saw along the road in Texas. As we were driving by one of those ranches where they have 500,000 acres and very fine fences, a cow came through a hole in the fence. The cow wandered into the road; when it heard the engine of our car, it started to run. By the time we caught up to the cow, she was some 400 yards away from the hole in the fence, and still going. Finally we passed her. If that cow was ever going to get back into the field with those strong fences, she was going to have to go back to the place where she got out.

That is exactly how you are going to get back into the will of God. If you keep running down the road, you won't find it. You go back and get in the will of God at the place where you got out of the will of God. This is God's method.

1. What types of holes do you find yourself trying to fit through?
2. What ways can you tell that you are wandering down the wrong path?
