So, there is this life lesson I want to share… But no topic seems to fit.
One way I have learnt and gleaned wisdom over the years is through life lessons. They are not just treasured but usually sink deep into my being.
A couple of months ago, at the home where I live, one of my brothers said to me
“Sis Tomi, go and bring out the ladder”
At this time, I was by the fridge beside another brother (let’s say bro B). So I left his side towards the backyard.
Then Bro B called after me ” Tomi, where are you going to?”
I said “To carry the ladder just as I was asked.”
Amused Bro B asked, “Can you carry it?”
To my own amazement, I replied, “Bro A saw my frame before he asked me to carry the ladder. If he asked me to carry it, it must mean perhaps that he understands that my frame can carry the ladder. And if I get there and I can’t, I will return to him and tell him.”
On getting there, I found no ladder…
I retuned to Bro A and said there was no ladder there. He said, (to my surprise) that he was pranking me that the ladder was not even at the backyard. And of course, he hailed my wife materialness…
That event ministered some truths within me.
Some times, God sends you on an assignment it seems you can’t bear it. You wonder if he is joking or pullin a prank on you.
But of course, God never pulls pranks!
The truth is God saw your frame,
He knows your frame,
And he sent you on that assignment!
He is not oblivious as to your frame!
Your frame says you have the structure to do the assignment
In Him, you are capable to do the assignment…
Hey, If you get to the assignment and it so frightens you, that you begin to see the frailty of your frame, the weaknesses of your frame, the inexperience of your frame, then you have to run back to Him who assigned you because he saw your frame!
My dear, he saw your frame fa (in Ogbomosho accent)
I think the psalmist puts it this way psalm 139:15
KJV:My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
ESV:My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
NIV:My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
AMP:My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].
So, whatever you are up to right now, draw strength front his truth!
God bless you.
Grace and Truth To You!
