Candle Stick lesson #1 – Works of Man

29 05 2012

Last time I shared about buying the glass candle sticks; when I brought them home  I found myself questioning if I had heard the Lord’s still small voice. I had so much in my office and there was no place to put these beautiful candle sticks so they sat in the box out-of-the-way as I re-arranged my office after trading office furniture with my husband.


Finally as I took time to rest and opened the box to enjoy the candle sticks. I was so sad when I pulled the first one out of the box, for it didn’t have the detail of the picture on the box. In my spirit I turned to God and said, can I take them back, they don’t look anything like the picture. I felt the answer was no and so I learned the first candle stick lesson


What God intends isn’t easily translated into the works of man. We can’t see clearly and lack the expertise of God to create with detail all the plans he has. So as I looked at these candle sticks I realized that when the vision I have in my head of God’s plan doesn’t come to pass with the exact detail I shouldn’t get frustrated, choosing instead to rest and rejoice in Him and His amazing and profound plans.


How many times do we stop because we can’t do it exactly like God, when in reality, like a child we are to do the very best we can, remembering perfection is only in the hand of God.
