My assignment was to prove, from the gospels, that Jesus is trustworthy by expounding on Matthew 26:47-56, Judas and the mob. At first glance, I had no idea how the two were even remotely related.
My attention went immediately to the betrayal aspect. I researched passages referencing betrayal with still, no connection.
I lay late into the night pondering. I started to focus on Jesus instead of Judas and immediately, three words into my mind. They were progressive points AND they rhymed! I was done a day early!
THE MORAL OF THIS STORY:
When in difficult situations, don't focus on the problem or the obvious. Quiet yourself and look to Jesus. Once I switched my focus from the obvious to the Lord of the supernatural, direction came immediately.
Several years ago, I encountered a great trial. The Lord impressed upon me that HE is my ONLY source. I floundered for awhile while exhausting all other options, (i.e. wasted a lot of time/energy trying to "help" the Lord). It wasn't until my self-sufficiency got out of the way and I looked to God only, that everything was resolved, redeemed, and restored just as He had promised. (Ps. 130:7-8)
God doesn't need worldly wisdom or Google to show Himself strong. All He needs is a quiet heart and eyes turned towards Him.
