When nothing else will work - read the instructions

I can remember purchasing items that came with instruction booklets, but I could assemble them by viewing the pictures. One day I purchased an item that gave me fits to assemble, so guess what I had to do? You guessed I had to break down and read the instructions. I’ve learned in my few years on the earth to read the provided instructions first in order to get a better understand of what to expect, because someone has already viewed the end result of what I’m about to attempt. Now that’s worth giving God thanks for already!

I watched the movie “Facing the Giants,” and let me tell you, if you haven’t seen it yet, get the DVD it’s great for the entire family. I just want to capture a small portion from the movie... the coach had arrived to a low place, his team wasn’t performing properly, the top office was disappointed with him, his car was breaking down on a regular basics, his home life was afflicted; this man needed help, and fast. How many of you know when we are weak, and then He (God) is strong. Let me explain… everything that is made has instructions; I don’t care if its home made so to speak and someone tell you how it works, those are still instructions. When this coach arrived to a low place he remembered the Word… 2 Corinthians 12:10 (New Living Translation) that’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. He took his eyes off himself, and looked to where his help comes from (God).


When we try and fail; when life seem to deal us a poor hand, don’t just sit down and do nothing, pull out the instructions (BIBLE). God is our designer, He knows us better than we know ourselves, why not receive instructions from the ONLY one who can repair everything that we will ever face. He may not repair things the way we desire them, but His way is always better. His ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts; His approaches to issues are much higher than we could ever comprehend. He was, He is, and He is to come.

Blessings to all!
