Prayer 1st of the Month
We Need Volunteers to P.U.S.H.
The Lord told the man he had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin.
The Lord explained that the man was to Push against the rock with all his might...
Since the man was showing discouragement, the adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture by placing thoughts into the weary mind: (He will do it every time)!
Thus, he gave the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a failure.
These thoughts discouraged and dishearten the man.
|Satan said, 'Why kill yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving |
just the minimum effort; and that will be good enough.' That's what the
weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a matter of Prayer and to
take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.
'Lord,' he said, 'I have labored long and hard in Your Service, putting
all my strength to do that which You have asked. Yet, after all this
time, I have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter.
What is wrong? Why am I failing?'
The Lord responded compassionately, 'My friend, when I asked you to
serve Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against
the rock with all of your strength, which you have done.
Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it.
Your task was to push. And now you come to Me with your strength spent,
thinking that you have failed.
But, is that really so? Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and
muscled, your back shiny and brown; your hands are callused from constant
pressure, your legs have become massive and hard.
Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass
that which you used to have. True, you haven't moved the rock. But your
calling was to be Obedient and to push and to exercise your Faith and
trust in My Wisdom. That you have done. Now I, my friend, will move the rock.'
At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect
to decipher what He Wants, when actually what God wants is just simple
obedience and faith in Him.
By all means, exercise the Faith that moves mountains, but know that it
is still God Who moves the Mountains.
When everything seems to go wrong...........................Just P.U.S.H.
When the job gets you down.............................Just P.U.S.H.
When people don't do as you think they should.............Just P.U.S.H.
When your money is 'gone' and the bills are due...........Just P.U.S.H.

P = Pray
U = Until
S = Something
H = Happens
Pass this on to all your loved ones and friends who may need it; they may
get it just in time. 'Though no one can go back and make a brand new
start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.'
Friends are like quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have
trouble remembering how to fly.
Just Hold ON and P.U.S.H!
