As new born babies, our parents never fed us with hot food. They began with cold breast milk, and then advanced to warm cereal foods. As we grew, they started introducing hot solid foods, but with their supervision. We watched them blow the food with their mouth until it is warm enough for our mouth to chew. Things changed as we grew much older; we hardly settle for meals that are cold or just warm. We like it steaming hot, probably because life is hot.
The kingdom of heaven is also hot. God may have fed you with milk or even blew your hot challenges so you can walk through cheaply; but a time comes when He expects you to learn how to fix your challenges through the things He has taught you, just like we learnt how to eat hot meals from our parents. I remember a child calling upon his mother saying "mum, please blow my food for me", and his mother responded saying "son, you have mouth, blow it by yourself". God told Moses something similar when he was faced with the red sea; He asked "what is that in your hand?". He blew the challenges for him in Egypt, but referred him to the things He had already given him when the real journey began. Afterwards, he did not need to call God to cause the rock to supply water.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; IF YOU FEEL LIKE CHRISTIANITY IS NOT AS ROSY AS IT USED TO BE FOR YOU, MAYBE IT IS TIME YOU START PRACTICING THE THINGS YOU HAVE LEARNT. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
