The Caterpillar’s Doubt

15 Jan

The Catterpillar’s Doubt…

What if you went up to a caterpillar and tried to tell it the truth about its life? You’d say something like: “Listen I know it looks like you’re a worm, it feels like you’re a worm, and you’re pretty much living a worm’s life, but… you’re not a worm. You’re a child of the butterfly. You’re not bound by earth. You’re a child of the heavens.”

Would the caterpillar be convinced? All it’s ever known is a worm’s life, an earthbound worm’s life. You’re asking it to believe what it’s never seen and beyond all its experience and comprehension.

It’s true… not only for the caterpillar, but for you! And I’m here to help convince you that though your life might look like a worm’s life, might feel like a worm’s life and if you take a good look at yourself in the mirror, you might see a worm… you’re not a worm.

If you’re born again, you’re no longer a child of your circumstance; you’re a child of the Most High. So stop living earthbound. Stop crawling through your walk. And start soaring… For you are a child of Most High… stop living like a worm.

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. 1 John 3:1-3

Choose to believe today that you are who God says you are – and act like it – “children of God”.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
