“…you can’t work on the Sabbath! It’s illegal to carry that sleeping mat!” * *
Most times we are so fixated on doing things the same way… That is how it has always been done… This is the way it has been working for me… It should be like this E.t.c but…
Check out this excerpt from Francis Chan’s Crazy Love:
“Did you know that a caterpillar has 228 separate and distinct muscles in its head? That’s quite a few, for a bug. The average elm tree has approximately 6 million leaves on it.
And your own heart generates enough pressure as it pumps blood throughout your body that it could squirt blood up to 30 feet. (I’ve never tried this, and I don’t recommend it.)
Have you ever thought about how diverse and creative God is? He didn’t have to make hundreds of different kinds of bananas, but He did.
He didn’t have to put 3,000 different species of trees within one square mile in the Amazon jungle, but He did.
God didn’t have to create so many kinds of laughter. Think about the different sounds of your friends’ laughs—wheezes, snorts, silent, loud, obnoxious.
How about the way plants defy gravity by drawing water upward from the ground into their stems and veins?
Or did you know that spiders produce three kinds of silk? When they build their webs, they create sixty feet of silk in one hour, simultaneously producing special oil on their feet that prevents them from sticking to their own web. (Most of us hate spiders, but sixty feet an hour deserves some respect!)”
Why would God create more than 350,000,000,000 galaxies (and this is a conservative estimate) that generations of people never saw or even knew existed until recently only for Him to make one way of doing things (AKA your way)?
Next time you want to confidently conclude that your way/method is the best/correct path… Pause and reflect on these, so we do not miss the miracles and wonder in the creativity of God.
