THIS MIGHT BE EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TODAY…
(Mark 4:26-29 GW) – 26) Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seeds on the ground. 27) He sleeps at night and is awake during the day. The seeds sprout and grow, although the man doesn’t know HOW. 28) The ground produces grain by itself. First the green blade appears, then the head, then the head full of grain. 29) As soon as the grain is ready, he cuts it with a sickle, because harvest time has come.”
Did you notice verse 27? It says that AFTER the man scatters the seed, he goes to bed at night and wakes up in the daytime, and the seed GROWS but HE DOESN’T KNOW HOW! Imagine that, it grows without him being the one in control. I remember the day the Lord told me, “Kevin, stop trying to figure Me out! Stop trying to figure out HOW I can do the impossible in your life. In fact, rearrange that word HOW and make it a WHO. YOU focus on the WHO, which is Me, and let Me take care of the HOW!”
THAT is the day my life changed forever. That’s how I make it through a diagnosis of ALS. I focus on the WHO…..not the how. “But Pastor Kevin, they say there is no cure!” Totally NOT my problem! I choose to focus on the WHO of the impossible and not the HOW of the impossible. I plant the seed of the Word of God into my life and the life of others and let “the Lord of the harvest” figure out HOW to bring it to pass. What happens next? I go to bed in peace and wake up in peace, plant more seed and repeat, and repeat, and repeat; and I do it while focusing on the WHO not the HOW. THEN the harvest will come. And when it does you better get out of the way because “the fruit will be flying!”
What are YOU going to do with YOUR “impossible” that you are facing? I suggest you drop the HOW and focus on the WHO!
