Today, we celebrate Columbus Day in the United States of America, as Columbus set foot in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492. Columbus may have been wrong about sailing to Asia from the Canary Islands, but he was right about being an instrument in the hands of the Lord. Similarly, we don’t always see or understand the reasons behind inspiration, even when we might think we do. When we feel prompted to do something that others might consider ridiculous or hopeless, let’s remember Columbus. Let’s remember that we don’t always know the Lord’s plan, but he will show us the individual steps we need to take in order to do His work.
