Did you know the bumblebee is unable to fly? I was also shocked! Imagine the bumblebee’s consternation!
But, no, the poor thing cannot fly. It can be proved by the laws of aerodynamics. This is because the size and shape of its body in relation to the size, shape, and make-up of its wings; and as can be very readily demonstrated by the use of a wind tunnel; makes flight quite impossible. However, the bumblebee being ignorant of of all these scientific facts, AND possessing considerable determination, DOES fly. And it makes a little honey too!
I said all that, to ask you this…What have you been told you’re too dumb, disabled, or destitute to accomplish? I use the word destitute not just in the sense of lack of financial ability, but as lacking any kind of resources. Such as physical, intellectual, emotional, or resources of any kind.
I am 61 years old, and have a few issues health-wise that on occasion slow me down a bit. In addition, I am what your local used car salesman would call, a high mileage unit. If I were an old Buick you’d probably find me on the back of the lot. But that’s neither here nor there. I get around and do just about anything Jesus needs me to do, because I’ve found the truth of what Apostle Paul said, “I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me…” Philippians 4:13. But, I’m rambling…let me continue.
My point is, when I was 16 or 17 years old, I was informed that what I thought the Lord had spoken into my life was NOT valid, because those kinds of ministry didn’t even exist anymore. Furthermore, I did not have the intellectual capacity for ministry, and lastly I had no anointing. Now, those who told me those things have gone to their reward, a couple of them having failed horribly in their assigned kingdom tasks for a number of different reasons. And here I am, having been preaching, teaching, discipling and praying folks through for more than 45 years. To God be ALL the blessing, honor, and glory forever!
Solomon said it truly, “A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.” Proverbs 29:23
I ask you again, my dear friend, What have you been told you’re too dumb, disabled, or destitute to accomplish? Proverbs 18:1 says, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.“. Maybe you don’t have all you need to do what you feel God calling you to do! That’s where Faith and Trust come in! I am a witness…He will provide one way or another, all the resources you need to accomplish your task! Trust and Obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey!
Now, fly little bumblebee! And bring home some honey!
