Yesterday morning while coming back from the market along with my daughter Aanya, I saw a good built German Shepherd dog behaving very abnormally. The dog seemed lost and had no sense of what it was doing or where it was going. Sometimes it would just smell the grass, sometimes it would look around with wandering eyes. I could immediately recognize that it had lost its way. It seemed so different in its behaviour which was contrary to a German Shepherd. Immediately I got a revelation in my heart from God, as He spoke: “if you lose Me in this world, this is what becomes of you.” Just as the dog lost its owner, a person in the world loses the sense of ownership that God has on each one of us.
What makes you lost in this world – your ego, your job, your status, your money, your intellect, your talent, your busy-ness, your pity-party, your circumstances? Most of us are, in one way or the other, lost in this world because of our own making, forgetting how much God loves us, cares for us and is waiting to talk to us. Later in our lives, we regret about what we were doing.
One of my ex-colleagues was busy being the best worker. He was thus spending no time with family, parents or friends. One day he got involved in a terrible accident and was immobile for two months. Another example is of an aged lady who was fixed on the idea that God does not listen to her prayers, while she dealt with a grown-up son who was an alcoholic. This was till she got desperate in her prayers for her son to change and she had to send her son to the de-addiction centre.
All such people are actually lost one way or the other, unaware of the change God wants to bring in them. Instead of seeing God’s hand in putting them in specific circumstances, they blame the whole world and lose sight of God’s purpose behind these. When that lady or the colleague of mine realised what God wanted from them, they felt stable, confident and at peace.
In case you are feeling lost, start spending time with the Ultimate One starting today. He shall guide you, take care of you, watch your steps, order your direction in such a minute details that you shall never feel lost! That’s when you get most secure in your mind and take on this world like a winner! – God bless you – Vinay Mehta
