    Peter answered him and said, 'Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters.' He said, 'Come!' Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, 'Lord, save ...

    Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed. Mark 1:34 NIVIt was early in the morning as I walked into my little prayer room. After praying for a few minutes I sat in the quiet solitude, mostly wondering how we we...

The Mechanical Rabbit

  • For to the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him who pleases God. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind. Ecclesiastes 2:26 WEB

    In dog racing, they have a lure called a mechanical rabbit that runs along a rail beside the race track. At the start of the race, the dogs line up and then chase this rabbit around the track, but no one ever catches it. When the next race comes, the dogs line up again and chase the rabbit. If they were to ever catch it, they would find that it was not nearly as satisfying as they thought, just a mouthful of hard plastic.

    Many of us line up each day and chase an uncatchable rabbit. Success, money, career, are all well and fine, but they have to be in balance. God has given His people wisdom, knowledge, and joy, and not merely the drudgery of gathering and collecting. If your main focus is on these things, when you finally catch them, then you will be disappointed.

    First, delight yourself in the Lord and then He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4). Seek the kingdom of God first and His righteousness and all of these things will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33). God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).

    Do not fall into the rut of chasing a mechanical rabbit day after day while running past the most important things in your life. When your focus is on the Lord, all these things will be added to you. The things that you desire, will chase you instead of you chasing them.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me to focus on You and grow my relationship. I choose You Lord. Work Your perfect will in my life and give me a clear vision of all that You have for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
