Our understanding can steal the best of Jesus for us!!!

  • “Trust in Jehovah with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. ” (Proverbs 3.5,6).

Let’s seek to recognize Jesus in all our decisions and ways to sort out the predicaments. Each situation of our life, whether small or great, is a parable of Jesus for us. It is up to us to figure out the message. Many times the promise of Ecclesiastes 9.11 doesn’t fulfill in our lives because we only focus on what we expect in the future, instead of taking advantage of each opportunity at the present, even the bad ones.

Many times we forget that:

  • a plant need manure to grow sturdy and exuberant;
  • the wheat needs to be sifted to get rid of the straw;
  • the gold and silver need to be passed through the very hot furnace to get pure;
  • many flowers or plants need to be crushed so that his sweet fragrance can be felt;
  • it’s necessary rain so that we can contemplate the beauty of a rainbow, which makes us remember of the alliance of the Creator with Noah and all human being (Genesis 9.14-17);
  • it’s necessary the burning of some material for us to get fire that lightens, warms and allows us to cook many food.

The art of the life consist of we acknowledge Jesus in every moment and seek out His direction amid this so that we can know what to do with the dungs, garbage and stones that people toss against us. If we don’t limit the Creator to our own understanding and believe in Romans 8.28, Jesus can make us to go through so extraordinary things that go beyond of our bigger imaginations and expectations (Ephesians 3.20). What could look like something unpleasant and bad, can be the passport for the great boon of Jesus for us.

Have an incredible day in Christ Jesus poring on all this. Tomorrow we’ll carry on.
