Metamorphosis 09-18-19

Good day everyone. No matter what your circumstances may be. No matter what you or any other man or woman may think your ailments are, remember this. If you have accepted Jesus as the Lord of you life,YOU ARE HEALED!I want to thank all those who have mentored me in my spiritual walk thus far. All of you have inspired me to present today’s prayer and bringing forth the message for the day. 

Today’s Prayer

Father, how amazing it is to compare our lives to the caterpillar that is surrounded by the cocoon and struggles until it emerges a beautiful butterfly. I pray that as we struggle through life’s challenges, that we lean on You and allow the cocoon of Your love to surround us and the circumstances and trials to help mold us into thebeautiful creaturesYou want us to become. Thank You for all You do. In JESUS’ name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Butterfly Principle

The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly.~Exodus 14:8 This is a subject I have shared before over the years. I was sitting reflecting on the trials and tribulations of life and started thinking about how overprotective parents do their children a great injustice. I then started thinking about growing and it brought back things I learned in science class in school about caterpillars. The caterpillar that lies inside the cocoon will never become the beautiful butterfly if someone cuts open the cocoon before it is allowed to develop. It is the struggle itself that allows the butterfly to emerge as a strong, new creature of nature. God understands how necessary this process is in our lives also. That is why we are allowed to experience difficult, often life-changing events. He even orchestrates them-all for our benefit. Dealing with the scripture above we understand what the Israelites thought was a cruel joke when Pharaoh sent troops to pursue them after they had been freed and penned against the shore of the Red Sea. This became the stage for the most publicized miracle of all time-the parting of the Red Sea. Generations after generation have heard this incredible story of deliverance. God puts us against the “Red Seas” in order to show His power in and through us. If we don’t know God can deliver, then we can never learn to trust Him. Circumstances that go beyond our capabilities of solving them place us at God’s complete mercy. This is how He likes it. Don’t fear the adversity that comes your way. If you are faithful to Him in the test, you will see God’s power manifested like never before. Just as the Israelites were able to sing a song of deliverance, you too will have your own testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness; and you will be able to recall it for others to build your faith and theirs.

Many a preacher misses the mark because, though he knows books, he does not know men.
