God is the Lighthouse

by on September 8, 2011

The captain of the ship looked into the dark night and saw faint lights in the distance. Immediately he told his signalman to send a message: “Alter your course 10 degrees south.”

Promptly a return was received: “Alter YOUR course 10 degrees north.”

The captain was angered; his command had been ignored. So he sent another message: “Alter your course 10 degrees south – I am the CAPTAIN!!”

Soon another message was received: “Alter YOUR course 10 degrees north – I am seaman third class Jones.”

Immediately the captain sent a 3rd message, knowing the fear it would bring: “Alter your course 10 degrees south – I AM A BATTLESHIP!!!”

Then the reply came: “Alter YOUR course 10 degrees north…I AM A LIGHTHOUSE”

I’m guilty of wasting a lot of time trying get God to change His mind. So many times I really don’t like His answers, and don’t agree with what He’s telling me to do.

Sometimes I feel like God doesn’t really get what I am going through….because after-all, if He really understood, wouldn’t He give me different answers?

The bottom line is this: God sees way beyond what we can and His wisdom is so beyond what we think…He even says it in the Bible: “I don’t think the way you think, and you can’t understand the way I think…”

That means that even if God were to explain His plans in the simplest form…it still wouldn’t make sense to us. His capacity is LIGHTYEARS beyond human thinking and reasoning!!

It all boils down to one thing….When God gives you an answer, (even if you don’t agree or like it) ….that’s just the way it is. He knows what’s best for you, even better than you know.

So instead of trying to make Him change His mind….here’s a thought: WHY NOT CHANGE YOURS INSTEAD?

Our Christian lives would be so much easier if we just learned to trust and obey God.

My Papa always used to say: “SON, EVERYTHING IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE WORKS BY FAITH!”

And then he would say: “DO YOU KNOW WHAT FAITH IS? ITS TAKING GOD AT HIS WORD!”

We need to realize one thing: God is God…..He always was and always will be! The Bible says, “I am the Lord God…and I CHANGE NOT.”

Pretty plain and clear huh?

SO INSTEAD OF TRYING TO GET GOD TO ALTER HIS COURSE….ITS ABOUT TIME WE START ALTERING OURS!

I PRAY A FRESH ANOINTING OVER YOUR LIFE TODAY. BE BLESSED!!

Expect a Miracle,
J Garcia
