On a good wonderful afternoon, a man was comfortably resting while lying on a swing tied underneath the “duhat tree”.
Lying flat on the swing, his eyes noticed the number of small purple-colored fruits and a thought comes into his mind, “If God’s wisdom is beyond what man can imagine, why did he make the fruits of this tree so small compared to its sturdy branches which can hold bigger fruit?
Why is it that the pumpkin has a small vine yet has a bigger fruit?”
Not finishing his thought, two small pieces of duhat fruit fell on his face.
With his amazement, he jumped off quickly out of the swing and kneel down. “God you know best!” he said.
“If those duhat fruits are pumpkins, I don’t know what will happen to my face. I’ll be heading straight for a face transplant.”
What We Don’t Know, God knows
So many times, we question God’s work in our lives.
The big question we always asked God is “WHY?”
Why does God allow to happen things in our life? Why now? Why me? Why He? It is our nature that we usually want things to be tailored based on our expectations and expect God to do the same. Expecting God to follow what we planned.
Let us not forget that on every question we have, God has definite and more concrete answers.
All things happen for a purpose. Nothing just happens! He works in ways we cannot see for His will is precisely different from ours.
“For I know the plans I have for you”, says the Lord. “the plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future”. I remembered Ninong Albert And Ninang Edith. At their age, they have long years of longing and praying for a son. They were given a gift, they named him Adam.
But one day a doubt came into Ninong Albert’s mind, ” What will happen to our son if we are gone? Who will take care of him?”
Then he realized, “If God raised me up for long years even if I didn’t even see my own parents, God will do the same.”
God’s blueprint is usually not revealed in detail.
He can see the whole picture while we can only glimpse the image being portrayed.
He knows the master plan.
Did Joseph imagine that he will be one of the most powerful men of Egypt before the Pharaoh? Think of the tragedies and hardship he went through after he was sold by his brothers and became a slave, became a prisoner for a crime he did not commit.
But that suffering and hardship paid off because God has a bigger purpose in what happened to his life.
Being the appointed steward and governor of Egypt, he saved his family and Israel from a great famine.
In time, we will not realize it, but in the end, all things work for the good of those who love and trust God.
You may know everything. I believe you can possibly do so many extraordinary and great things.
But never forget that we have limitations… trust God.
Believe me, he knows best!
May your happiness be full,
