|Bring you to your knees
Have you ever thought what a great thing it would be if you could attend
a bible study or a sermon given by Jesus himself? Can you imagine what
kind of insight you could get from the Master? I would'nt say this happened
the other day exactly, but close. I was on my knees; yes literally. I was at
work, scraping some masking tape from the floor where we had installed
some wiring under the concrete. You would be surprised what you think
about while on your knees. I saw some of my old hands from the bakery
go by while I was there and I got to thinking (inspired by the Devil), here I am
on the floor working; a man who at one time was in charge of an entire
production line with authority to shut the process down if I wanted to.
Well, this is when I got my lesson form the Lord. I don’t know why, but the
verse that says “don’t esteem yourself higher than you ought ” came to
mind. This was followed by “pride comes before a fall”. Needless to say,
this gave me a better prospective on life. Lesson learned; I should rejoice
and be thankful in whatever position God has for me in this life. So, when
God puts you on your knees, pray a prayer of thanksgiving.
God Bless You. Doug Moreland.
