Why Settle for 'Crumbs' when you can have the Whole 'Bread'?

Life challenges no doubt can be very tough at certain stage. One will be forced to ask heart breaking questions that can only dwindle the little or mighty faith he's got. There's no denying the pain when you expect blessings afterall you think you've done for humanity and in service to God, nothing seems to be in the right place. But then, how do one define the right place from the human point of view becomes the question one needs to ask. Especially with the scripture of 'all things work together for our good in mind' Romans 8:28. The human point can and will only show the impossibilities of your situations, which can easily bend you over or bring you down to your knees.

At that position, some may think too much on the strength they need to get up or straightened themselves again and will probably settle where they have found themselves. What they seems to have forgotten, remaining on their knees or bent over will hurt more and be humiliating than trying to stand up again. So, choose not to give up Micah 7:8. In that choice you know, you are saying to your God, it is not about you but Him to show forth his might. Because on the floor, you can only get to the crumbs and how much of that do you think can sustain you in life's journey? I trust it will be little or nothing. And of course, the crumbs may not fall down from the table everyday. Sooner or later one will be too crushed to survive. The whole bread is what you need and human effort of course won't get you that. Ask God for mercy and trust Him. He will be right on time because He is never late.

The crumbs are human agenda for your life and the bread is God's agenda. To possess it means, you have to stop focusing on gathering the crumbs to survive and stretch out your hands to im to be lifted in picking up what has been given to you. Now, you wonder how you ended up on the floor and why God has allowed it so. Simple, you depended too much on human effort. And the floor is the easiest way to learn how strong the Lord our God is. All, I have got to say, is that; in each stage of life, no matter the trials; let go and let God take charge of the reel without fear. He has a perfect definition of the right place you should be. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit Jeremiah 17:7-8.

Have the Most fruit bearing week ever. Cheers!
