|Don't ask me why I have 4 sets of measuring spoons!|
This phrase from yesterday's devotional keeps going through my head. So many times in the past, I've spent unprofitable time trying to measure whether or not I'm "doing enough for God." I may not say it in those words, but that's generally the gist of my self-evaluation.
It's freeing to let the highlighted words above sink in! "We CANNOT measure that at all." What God pours through a surrendered and selfless life is impossible to measure! It's not what I produce that matters, but what He produces in me and releases through me.
|Another form of five pounds...|
I think it's the same way with my spiritual life. How differently my efforts must "weigh" with God who measures with an entirely other-worldly set of measures! After all, how do you measure "Living Water"??? I can't see anything yet...but one day I WILL see as He sees. Till then my prayer is:
Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit Hearts that full surrender know; That the streams of living water From our inner self may flow. Channels only, blessed Master, But with all Thy wondrous power Flowing through us, Thou canst use us Every day and every hour.
("Channels Only", Gospel Song)
Kind of curious here. What kitchen gadgets do YOU have duplicates of?
