Dear Readers, Where does our WORTH and success really come from? Let me share a little story. Two donkeys were grazing in the field in Jerusalem, one donkey said, “I don’t understand it, it was just yesterday everyone was throwing their clothes and palms down, singing Hosanna when I was carrying Jesus on my back, but now I am back to being nothing! Those people don’t even acknowledge that it was I that carried Him.” The other donkey said, “That’s how it works brother you are NOTHING without Jesus.”
Sometimes we can forget God the Father has a great plan for our lives. He holds the blueprints, He always has. We were created for His purpose. But, human nature has a tendency,” Let’s just push it through, I will make it WORK.”
The other day I was looking at a beautiful rose bush I noticed the different roses, each one budding at different times. My eye caught a tightly closed bud, then another opened just a bit more, and then I noticed the rose that was opened all the way each petal was so perfect.
As looked at the rose, I realized human nature sometimes tries to force a dream, desire, or relationship to happen. Many trying so hard to force something open, and Jesus is nowhere in the plans. You see I could have reached down and forced open the tightly closed rosebud. But it would have died, and the delicate petals would have fallen to the ground prematurely. God opens each rosebud in His perfect timing. Allow Jesus to be a part of your plans, He will open the door for you in His perfect timing.
Psalms 37:4; Delight yourself in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Proverbs 3:5-6; “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean NOT on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
Don’t be like the donkey, and desire to be noticed, because without Jesus we are nothing.
