Look up to the One who looks up to no one

In life, when we get to our wit's end, we seek help from others who are higher, and as such better placed than we are to help us out. That could be in form of a doctor, a mechanic, an electrician, or other professionals (even a pastor) depending on the nature of the problem we're faced with.

What frequency are you tuned in to: the 'what ifs' of fear or faith?



The 'what ifs' of fear...
What if you try and you fail woefully?
What if you invest that money in business and it all goes down the drain?
What if this sickness will lead to death?
What if after studying hard you still fall short?
What if your marriage deteriorates further?
What if something goes horribly wrong on the way?
What if the board thinks your idea is rubbish?
What if you lose this job?

Picture it, you want to help the person, and he/she goes, “I’ve got this, thank you” ; you try again to help in another situation, and they go, “I’ve got this, thanks for the offer.” Really, how do you help such persons? You try to offer your help, but they don’t make the space for it. It’s frustratingly difficult; especially when it’s apparent the person needs your help.

“A good man brings good things out of the good STORED UP in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil STORED UP in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of” - Luke 6:45 (NIV).

Are you likely to be surprised when you open a trash can and it smells awful? I reckon you are not very likely to be surprised because you quite expect it to smell bad. Right?
