There's Nothing There!
Glance Over Your Shoulder
In drivers training I was taught you have to use the rear view and the side view mirrors as you maneuver from one lane to another. The instructor let us know that in order for us to be able to know what is behind us we had to use the rear view mirror. We were also instructed that we had to use the side view mirrors to know what was coming up alongside us. Even though we had these two apparatus to help guide us along, there is an area when you can't see the other car. The only way you will know that a car is there, you have to glance over your shoulder to make sure there was not another vehicle there. This is the blind spot.
This is the place when a car coming alongside of you is no longer in your vantage point either from the rear view or the side view mirrors. It is in this blind spot where you cannot see and if you do not proceed with caution in moving from one lane to another you will have an accident.
In life, at the juxtaposition of the blind spot you are totally dependent on God. You have been ordered to stop doing what you have grown accustomed to doing and you are moving into unfamiliar territory. It is a natural inclination to want to look back. But when you do nothing is there. Even when you look alongside of you it appears as though you are all alone and nothing is there. God is in the blind spot.
Just like when you are driving and you encounter the blind spot, you have to keep moving. You may not be able to see and understand all God has for you, but it is in the blind spot where God provides revelation of those things that have been hidden. The blind spot holds the mysteries to your destiny.
The blind spot can be a scary place because you can't see clearly. When you are in the blind spots of life you can't stop, but you have to continue to proceed forward. However, while you are in the blind spot God provides precise instructions for your life. Transformation takes place and your faith increases as you begin to see what God sees. You are so full of expectation and anticipation that it takes tremendous discipline for you to proceed cautiously so you can clearly hear God's instruction on your way to the next season of your life.
The wealth and prosperity of God lies in the blind spot. You can see where you are going as you look ahead. The rearview mirror provides you with a landscape of where you came from and the side view mirrors represent where you are right now. However, the blind spot is the place of total trust and complete surrender.
In order to experience the fullness of God in your life, you have to be just as content in the blind spot as though you could see everything clearly. The more content you are with God's instruction, the more you will meet with an expected end without any accidents. The reason the blind spot exists is because it is during this time that God not only hides you from the world, but he hides you from yourself so He can complete His perfect work in you. At the precise moment when you glance over your spiritual shoulder, God reveals you for the world to see because you have been prepared and ready to emerge out of the blind spot.
