The wisdom and understanding of the Lord is infinite and unknowable. In
the beginning He was and He will continue to be for all time. The Lord who
created all things for His good pleasure now calls us His children because
of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross and has made Himself available to us if
only we earnestly seek Him. We should never allow ourselves to be burdened
with the troubles that come our way, but rather we should seek the Lord and
ask for His direction and guidance and lift the burden that is trying to
bring us down. (Psalm 147:5) (John 1:1-3) (Proverbs 3:1-6) (Matthew 11:28-30)
The Bible declares in Jeremiah 29:11-14 “For I know the thoughts that I
think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to
give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and
pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek Me, and find
Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found of
you, saith the LORD...” Always remember that God loves you and wishes for
you to be completely whole not lacking any good thing. Call upon Him
always and share with God all that is on your heart. (John 16:23-24)
I hope you are encouraged by today's message to continually seek the Lord
in all your ways and know that because you do, He will be there to hear and
answer your prayer.
A BUZZARD, A BAT, AND A BEE
Did You Know?
If you put a buzzard in a pen six or eight feet square and entirely open at
the top, the bird, in spite of his ability to fly, will be an absolute
prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the
ground with a run of ten or twelve feet. Without space to run, as is his
habit, he will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life
in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkably nimble creature
in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the
floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no
doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can
throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee if dropped into an open tumbler will be there until it dies,
unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but
persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom.
It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, there are lots of people like the buzzard, the bat, and the
bee. They are struggling about with all their problems and frustrations,
not realizing that the answer is right there “Above” them.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Romans 8:31-34 “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us,
who can be against us? He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him
up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that
justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather,
that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh
intercession for us.”
Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus declares “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are
heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn
of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your
souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
Proverbs 3:1-6 “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my
commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add
to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck;
write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and
good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all
thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways
acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”
Psalm 147:3-5 “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
