Don't listen to people who think they are smarter than God!

Today’s Reading: 2 Sam. 23-24, Luke 19:1-27

Today’s Reflection: Luke 19:25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 

After their Lord decides to take the one pound from the slothful servant, and give it to the one who already has the most…ten to be exact…it is amazing at the response of those whom he instructed to make the transfer on his behalf. 

As IF the Lord didn’t already know, they exclaimed, “Lord, he hath ten pounds.” It seems as if they are saying, “Lord, doesn’t he already have enough?” Isn’t it amazing how much more people think they know than God? Especially in a world today that preaches so-called “equality”, we assume that everyone should be given the same opportunities, the same blessings, the same pay, etc., but the truth is, only God weighs the hearts and spirits, and only God knows who is truly capable of being entrusted with the true riches from above. 

All people’s souls may be of equal value in the eyes of God, but what people do with them is not. And here is where we must trust The Lord. God decides if and when we will be trusted with more or less, and when we’ve had enough or when we haven’t had enough. 

We need to take a lesson here that we need not allow men to tell us when we’ve accumulated enough Kingdom assets with their responsibilities, because if men had their way, they’d ensure that everyone, whether qualified or not, would get an equal share which would in turn prove to be a great waste in God’s Kingdom. 

God, on the other hand, decides that if there is to be a transfer of stewardship and/or ownership, then that which is in the hands of the least responsible should then be shifted into the hands of the most responsible. In fact, know this; God uses the tests of life to His advantage and our promotion whenever possible. 

If God sees you faithful and dependable during seasons of testing and trial, then He knows He can trust you with the advantage. Perhaps you wonder if you will ever be trusted with more, because you’ve struggled your whole life for survival. If that’s the case, I have one question; have you been faithful in the few? 

IF you have been faithful in the few, then don’t be surprised if you land a promotion given by none other than The Lord of glory! And when that happens, you need not let the brethren start telling you that you have too much, because trust me, they will say it! How do I know this? Because they even told The Lord that very thing in our text! 

So, you let God put you where HE wants you, and give you what HE wants, and just continue being faithful, never looking back or second-guessing The Lord’s decision-making abilities!
