Today Reminder – 16 June 2014 (Day 11 – Stand up)

A reminder for today
The LORD will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don't abandon me, for you made me. (Psalm 138:8)

The story of Two

Two has always been second all his life. He has never had the chance to be number one. As the years went by he so desired the first position and dreamed of being number one. One day while everybody was busy sorting out their numbers Two quietly took One’s place. At last when all the sorting was done it was too late to change anything and Two was happily in One’s place. Everybody was shocked and did not know what to do. Two was so happy that he finally was in the first position that he did not care what the people said and thought, he just stood proud in his newly self-appointed place.

A man came by and saw what had happened. He looked at Two and saw how he so wanted the position but he was sad and hurt by all the painful comments people were making. The man walked over to Two and started to ask him about his new position and how he came about it. The man started to explain to Two that he will never be happy in a position that he was never designed to be in. He said that the number maker made each number with a special purpose and that each number must use his number talent to be the best that he can be in the position that was designed for him. He said that Two might always be second in this sequence, because he is a two. But let us place you in the right sequence that you were designed for. He took Two to a new place where there were lots of numbers standing around uncertain what to do and where to go. He said to two to take the first position. Two reluctantly walked up to the first position and took its place. Suddenly the room changed as all the numbers seemed to realise where they fit in. Four came by and took the second position and so came Six and Eight as they all fell into place. Each time they lightened up with joy as they saw their purpose.

“You see” said the man to Two “Sometimes we are in a place where we are not made to shine. It is only when we realise what our purpose is and when we follow that purpose we will come to a place where we will shine and all those around us will see our light and realise their purpose. It is then when the number maker will be glorified for His designs finally is who they were intended to be. You might look like a two to those numbers, but in the right place with the right purpose, you will always be first.”

My dear friend, to God you are always a one and never a two for He made you.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
