|Honoring the Boll Weevil - photobucket|
This got me to thinking. How many times are we lamenting our circumstances, or fighting against the "pests" in our lives, when God is planning to bestow on us a blessing because of them? Paul said that we "see through a glass, darkly (1 Corinthians 13:11). I believe that there is so much going on in the spiritual realm that we cannot see or understand. This physical world is such a small part of reality, and our vision is limited to the here and now, which is just a tiny blip of eternity. God sees the whole picture, and is orchestrating each event from His superior vantage point. His protection is always around us, and nothing can touch us unless He allows it.
So, when the pests of life show up, remember the boll weevil, and thank God that He is caring for you through the adversity.
