" ... they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward." — Ezekiel 1:9
The four faces of the creature in Ezekiel only go in the direction of the face. There is no turning, only forward movement or stillness, and only in the direction the spirit moves the one creature with four faces, eight wings, and four wheels within wheels. It is the spirit of the creature that moves the wheel and carries the creature forward in one of the four directions. So, know that though you have multiple faces to wear to the glory of God, you have one spirit that directs your life, direction and outcome. Go with God in the hat you are wearing and always go forward, glorifying him as you go. Peace, joy, strength and wisdom will follow.
“Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life, and you will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” — Psalms 23:9
So, even though you must wear many hats and be responsible to many people in your life, keep in mind the principle of one spirit and one direction at a time. Let your spirit be the motivator, no matter which hat you are wearing or which direction you are going, and you will find all you need to do all you have to do.
