The Rock

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 12 months ago

A little boy was spending his Saturday morning playing in his sandbox.  He

had with him his box of cars and trucks, his plastic pail, and a shiny red

plastic shovel. In the process of creating roads and tunnels in the soft

sand, he discovered a large rock in the middle of the sandbox.

The boy dug around the rock, managing to dislodge it from the dirt.  With

a little bit of struggle, he pushed and nudged the rock across the sandbox

busying his feet. (He was a very small boy and the rock was very

large.) When the boy got the rock to the edge of the sandbox however, he

found that he couldn't roll it up and over the little wall. Determined,

the little Boy shoved, pushed, and pried, but every time he thought he had

made some progress, the rock tipped and then fell back into the sandbox.

The little boy struggled, pushed, and shoved; but his only reward was to

have the rock fall back, smashing his chubby fingers. Finally he burst

into tears of frustration.

All this time the boy's father watched from his living room window as the

drama unfolded. At the moment the tears fell, a large shadow fell across

the boy and the sandbox. It was the boy's father.

Gently but firmly he said, "Son, why didn't you use all the strength that

you had available?" Defeated, the boy sobbed back, "But I did, Daddy, I

did! I used all the strength that I had!"

"No, son," corrected the father kindly. "You didn't use all the strength

you had. You didn't ask me." With that the father reached down, picked up

the rock, and removed it from the sandbox.

I thank God that He is always available when I call on Him for help or

guidance.  I never get a busy signal or someone telling me that He is busy

and cannot assist me at this time.  God is omniscient, omnipotent and

omnipresent.  He knows everything, has all power and authority, and is

everywhere at the same time.  There is no "Rock" that He can't handle or

get an answer to and He is always ready to help, but we must be willing to

call upon Him for it.  Whatever problem there is in your life, God is and

has the answer.  I encourage you to be quick to call and ask for His

help.  The Lord will never leave you nor forsake you.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

James 1:3-7 ".the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience

have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting

nothing.  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to

all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  But let

him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of

the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that

he shall receive any thing of the Lord."

Psalm 145:15-19 "The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them

their meat in due season.  Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the

desire of every living thing.  The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and

holy in all his works.   The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon

him, to all that call upon him in truth.  He will fulfil the desire of

them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them."

John 16:33 Jesus declares "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me

ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of

good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Psalm 34:15-17 "The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears

are open unto their cry.  The face of the LORD is against them that do

evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.  The righteous

cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles."

All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
