In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:17-20 NASB
At the risk of Sounding like I am trying to tell some kind of bad dad joke, I’d like to tell you that you are not a goose sitting on a powerline.
I was driving to work this morning and I saw a group of canadian geese flying over the road and it looked like they were going straight for a group of very tall high-powered lines on their descent.
And it looked like one goose was going to try to land on one of the power lines. I immediately have a thought in my mind that that’s not going to work very well. Geese don’t have talons how is it supposed to hang on to the powerline.
Geese have webbed feet, webbed feet can’t wrap around a high-powered powerline very well. At least in my mind it wouldn’t work well.
God didn’t make webbed feet on geese to wrap around powerlines.
Well, sure enough, that goose barely clipped the powerline but didn’t attempt to land on it. I’m sure if it had tried it would have been a terrible failure worthy of Canadian Geese Funniest Videos.
Are you doing what God intended for you to do? Or are you a goose attempting to sit on a powerline?
I know we all struggle at some point trying to figure out what God’s purpose is for our lives. We want to know what God created us to do.
Many times it’s a lot easier to see the things that we think we can’t do.
I do know this, that we were all created in Christ Jesus for good works.
If you can’t find your calling quiet yet, start with loving others via actions and not just words. In the process of doing those good works you may just find your calling.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 NASB
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28 NASB
