When your mid-night gets dark, and life throws you a curve ball to further complicate your situation, don’t let go; hold on.
I have dodged many curve balls in my lifetime, but I am a victim of many more. And, through it all, I have learned to trust God no matter how grave the situation. Still, that is easier said than done. But, I must remind you that the Bible is our blueprint, and the Holy guide is our guide.
Sometimes God directs us down paths that seem impossible, but if you think outside the box, we’ll see that God is prompting us to kickstart our creative juices. For example, in my neck of the woods, I learned an old saying as a child: “If a man hates you, he will give you a basket to fetch water.” At first glance, it would appear futile to bring water in a basket. But with a bit of creativity, you realize that getting water in a basket is not impossible. There are examples in the Bible of great men who scoffed at God’s instructions because they thought the tasks were impossible. For instance, Jonah refused to go to Nineveh, and Moses tried to talk his way out of going down to Egypt. But they later learned that God would never give you an assignment unless he equips you with the necessary tools to do the job. Hence, with Christ, all things are possible.
Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.
2 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew, the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. 7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those with leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
It has been a while since I posted on this website. But that does not mean I have given up the fight. On the contrary, I am still yearning for heaven in a place called earth. “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” (Matthew 5:5 KJV).
