Ever wondered about the African bullfrog, gets to be as large as a dinner plate. AZ Animals.com gives an interesting backdrop on this creature. It looks after the shallow tadpole pond, as it looks out for its young and will use it back legs to burrow from a shallow to a deeper pond so that the pond where the baby tadpoles are will fill up. It also sheds its entire skin, starting from the back slipping out legs first and last the head, just like a suite.
So too financially one’s pond can dry up, causing a catastrophe, yet God will allow funds to flow from a deeper financial pot into your pond so that one can survive the heat.
One such an example was 2Kings 4:2 – 4 (GNB) “What shall I do for you?” he asked. “Tell me, what do you have at home?” “Nothing at all, except a small jar of olive oil,” she answered. “Go to your neighbors and borrow as many empty jars as you can,” Elisha told her. “Then you and your sons go into the house, close the door, and start pouring oil into the jars. Set each one aside as soon as it is full.”
As God filled up the widow’s puddle with oil. So when you feel your puddle has dried up, don’t move away, God will fill it up from the rivers and storehouses He owns. Leading to the second lesson of the bullfrog, the suite you are wearing, you may have to shed for a new one, God wants you to leave the old skin, new prospects and a new look is what God has ordered. Dear Father, make me shed off the things faults of yesterday, make me appealing to others and help me bring order to my finances. Give me something new to live for, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
