sometimes when we see people who is so success in his/her life, we wondering what makes them so success? why cant i be like them? sometimes we feel so inferior too.
how many times we wondering: i dont have what i need to keep go on, i dont have any assets or skills like others, how can i become a success people if i dont have anything? even after i tried my best the results is so bad, maybe i will never make it happen. and maybe sometimes we complain to God too, why He is so unfair?
what ive got in living in God is very different, actually God taught us something wonderful about it.
remember when Lord Jesus feed 5000 peoples? at that time His disciples didnt have any idea how can they give food to so many people. that time Jesus ask them, how many bread do you have? His disciples said that they only have 5 breads and 2 fishes. hearing that Jesus ask all the peoples to sit down, then He thank God for it then brake and share that breads and fishes to them to eat. and in the end they gather the fragments that remain and it become 12 basket full.
in the old testament there was similar event like that too. its when Elisha help a widow whom her children would be taken because of her debts. Elisha asked her, what should i do for you, what you have in your house? and she answer him that she only had a pot of oil. then Elisha asked her to borrow empty jars from her neighbour, after that they filled all the jars with the oil from that one pot. and the widow sell the oils and can pay the debts and live from whats left from the selling.
so.. what God taught us is to see carefully, whatever we have right now? thank God for it (remember when Lord Jesus thank God for 5 breads and 2 fishes which really wasn't enough to be shared), then share it with other people, and The Almighty Father God will help us with whatever we have right now, He is the Father God which is so smart, He will never run out of idea how to raise us up with the only things we have right now.
(hmm.. but we must remember this, dont collect things just for ourself, dont be selfish, if we do, maybe God wont help us anymore. if that happens just repent, He also a good and faithful God, He will forgive and raise us up again)
Merry Christmas, God bless you
