Title: Mike's Minute

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you in due time.

1 Peter 5:6

An old poem tells about a woman who was strolling through a meadow one day. As she walked along, meditating on nature, she came upon a field of pumpkins. In the corner of the field stood a huge, majestic oak tree
The woman sat under the oak tree and began musing about the strange twists in nature. Why do tiny acorns grow on huge branches and huge pumpkins grow on skinny little vines?
She thought, It doesnít make sense. God made a blunder with creation. He should have put the small acorns on the tiny vines and the large pumpkins on the huge branches.
After a while, the woman dozed off, enjoying the cool shade of the oak tree on the warm, early autumn afternoon. He was awakened when a tiny acorn bounced off her nose.
Chuckling to herself, she amended her previous thinking. Maybe God was right after all!
In every situation, God knows more about the people and circumstances involved than we can ever know. He alone sees the beginning and the ending. He alone sees the inside and the outside. He alone knows how to create a Master Plan that provides for the good of all those who serve Him.
Many people want to serve God... but only in an advisory capacity. Letís humble ourselves before God and trust that Father really does know best!
