So as some of you know already, I use my tree stand, blind, or just sitting against a tree as my prayer closet. Most of the time early in the morning I pray for the days events, for friends and family, and for safety on all hunts. I have written in the past about previous times where I have been praying for animals to come my way and many times this happens. I have been successful in many of those hunts and have harvested the animals. So I was playing a hunt back through my head: I was sitting in my tree stand opening morning. I did my usual prayers for safety and success for all in our group. I had seen a few deer but nothing that was shootable. My dad decided to get out of his stand after a couple of hours and came to me to see what I had seen. I told him about the few deer I had seen, he had seen the same ones. He was going to go back to the cabin so I got down and went over and sat in his stand for a while. After about 30 mins or so I started praying for God to bring me a nice buck. Well true to Gods word. Psalms 37:4 (KJV) Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. I heard a stick snap. there he was a really nice 8 pointer. I hurried my gun up he was on a b-line and before I knew it he was close. I pulled the gun up put the crosshairs behind the shoulder and my first shot rang out. The deer ran about 50 yards and stopped I pulled up again and bang another shot off the deer ran quick out of sight. I was really excited, my heart pumping as I thanked God for this opportunity. I calmed myself and after a little bit climbed down to check the blood trail. I had a good trail at first and then it started to fade. I went back to the cabin and got help to find it but to no avail, no matter how many days I spent searching I never found it. I was trying to figure out why God would bring me this animal and then not allow me to find it. I didn’t understand until a few weeks ago when I was reminiscing about this hunt. God and the Holy Spirit put this upon my heart. God can open many doors for us, as a matter a fact he opens doors for us every day. Some times we choose his will and go through those doors sometimes we don’t and that door closes. When he opens a door for us like bringing me this deer I wanted so bad or when he opens a business door, or friend door. We still have to execute, God can not be expected to do everything for us. So God can bring me animal after animal but if I don’t execute the shot correctly, then I have not done my part. I can’t blame God for not letting me find this animal God did his part. Now that I have learned this I make sure I do my due diligence in sighting in my guns, bows, slingshots whatever it maybe and also make sure I take my time and make good ethical shots even if it means passing on a big buck. Lets all know that God can give us our desires but sometimes we must execute our parts to keep them forever.
