    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 me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and said to him, "You of li...

The Box of Computer Parts

  • The heavens are the heavens of Yahweh; But the earth has he given to the children of men. Psalms 115:16 WEB.

    I watched my son wrestle with connecting the wiring harness to the motherboard of the computer he was building. I could have done it for him, but he needed to learn to do this himself, and that plug only fits one way. He wanted a gaming computer for his sixth Christmas. So being a computer tech, I bought him something much better: All the parts of a gaming computer in a big box. Then I let him assemble it himself, install everything from scratch so he would take care of it. Also, he would know every part inside of it.

    I supervised while he assembled the computer, gave him pointers, and tried to help him avoid common mistakes. I taught him to keep himself grounded to prevent ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) and smoking the parts. When he got stumped, I would help him, or when he asked me to. But besides those times, I just watched him quietly. When the project was complete, he had built much more than a computer. He had built his confidence. Now he had an experience his peers did not have. Later, when the computers would break at his school, they would ask him to fix them.

    Heaven is God's home, but the Earth God has given to the children of man. He watches us from above as we would observe our children putting together a jigsaw puzzle, a model car, or a computer. The Lord is there and entirely able to help us. In fact, He could do it better than we could, but He will not step in uninvited. God provides what we need, guides us, and will help us when we ask Him to. He wants us to grow in faith and to know that we are not alone here. We can have confidence that He has got our back.

    But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 WEB.

    Would you take away your child's model car and assemble it yourself? Do it all for them? That would rob the experience from them. So enjoy your life, and when you get stumped, pray about it. That is our way of getting guidance when we need it, but do not expect a lot of help to come that you did not ask for.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You today for all that You have given me. I choose to believe that You are there for me when I need You most. Please guide me this day and help me put all of this together correctly. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Pastor Dion, every day I'm astonished at the ways God leads and provides the tiniest of details! He may not be doing the tasks, but He's certainly walking me through. I find tremendous assurance in the knowledge of God guiding beside me! I thank You today for all that You have given me. I know You are there for me every step. Lord, please guide me this day. Thank you. In Jesus' name, Amen
