A Task

What do you do when God gives you a task you know you do not have

the resources or abilities to accomplish? You do it, of course. (No sarcasm intended!)

In The Matrix Reloaded (Warner Bros, 2003), a Council Member says,

"Comprehension is not a requisite of cooperation.". I like that

quote because it our position with God most of the time. We must

cooperate (agree) with Him even when we do not comprehend

(understand) His ways or purposes. Why?

God always has a plan. His plans work. Ours are subject to fail.

Move forward (cooperate) even without comprehension (understanding).

He will provide what is needed when needed--as long as we are moving.

  Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the

  crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and

  countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote

  place here." He replied, "You give them something to eat." They

  answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we

  go and buy food for all this crowd." Taking the five loaves and the

  two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them.

  Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people. They

  all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve

  basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.

  (Luke 9:12-13, 16-17 NIV)
