What do you understand? I recently had a challenge with my hearing which lasted for a week. I that could talk and hear multiple sounds at the same time became someone who couldn’t talk and listen at the same time. It was like a clash in my hearing. Medical practitioners said it was wax, and they recommended an eardrop for me. Surprisingly, the more I used the eardrop, the more the challenge grew. I started having headaches, and I couldn’t even watch the television because of the different sounds that came from it. Becoming deaf wasn’t an option for me; but trust me, there are ear infections that are far worse than being deaf.
But while I thought of the worse that could happen, I also meditated on scriptures to see the best that could happen. The first medical practitioner I met already gave me a wrong prescription, so I wasn’t ready to waste more time on something I didn’t understand or something I wasn’t sure would work. So I settled for what I understood! I understood that “my light affliction would work out an exceeding weight of glory, if I take my mind off the seen, and focus on the unseen. Because the things which are seen are temporal, and the things which are not seen are eternal”. I understood that even if I became deaf, I would still be restored back to normal. And guess what, I was restored before 5pm that same day.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; IT’S NOT THE SCRIPTURE YOU QUOTE IN TIMES OF CHALLENGES THAT WILL SET YOU FREE, IT’S THE ONE YOU UNDERSTAND. WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND? Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
