"So, Have you called Jenny lately?"
Can you imagine a day with out dieting? I can't, at least not in this lifetime. As usual, I had been dieting - seriously following a set routine. Every morning I would weigh myself as soon as I woke up and I would write the results in a journal. On this particular morning I woke up early before anyone else was awake and fell right into my routine. Now, that night our son Mikey, who is Autistic, had a nightmare and had crawled in bed with us. Mikey was sound asleep or so I thought. Just as I gingerly stepped onto the scale, (I didn't want to wake the scale up either.) I heard a voice. "So, have you called Jenny lately?" I spun around to find Mikey propped up in bed with a big grin.
Isn't that just like us? Not acknowledging that we need to stop trying to work things out for ourselves and turn to the professional - God. Matthew 7:7-8 says "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." But, rather than studying God's word, taking it into our heart and applying it to our lives, we struggle to fix our circumstances.
Why not seek the Master of Solution first? In Matthew 20:32, "Jesus stood still and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?" Did you catch that? Read it again. Jesus plainly asks them, "What do you want me to do for you?" How can I help you? Can I give you the solution?
Did you think it would be that easy? In our feeble mind it never is. Friend, today what are you struggling with? What do you need? That same Jesus in Matthew 20:32 is the same Jesus today. He still asks the same question. What can He do for you? What are you waiting for? Go ahead; just ask.
