Today’s Scattered Seeds

When we were moving out of our house last month, we had a beast of a bedroom suite that had to be moved. I swear the wide dresser is about as heavy as a deep freeze, and so when it came to moving this stuff I had my concerns.

Just as the men were coming downstairs, my husband said “You probably don’t want to watch this.”

It was a nail-biting moment for sure, but unlike so many others that have gone before them, these men did it with ease. The difference? With the right shoulder straps, they were well equipped for the job. I could tell they had done this before.

Remember the saying, “God equips those He calls.” I’m sure you’ve heard it many times before, but let the power of those words really sink in. What it’s really saying is this:

For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:13, NIV)

Imagine the power you have when God’s on your side. The impossible is always possible when He calls you to act. If He’s called you to it, He will see you through it, and so throughout scripture He says, “Be strong and courageous.”

Like a shield that stands before a warrior, the Lord stands before us.
