For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Catching Monkeys is fairly easy in Africa. What they do is find a hollowed out log and cut a hole in it just big enough for the monkeys hand to fit in. They also place a cube of sugar in the log. When the monkey comes along and finds the sugar he grabs it. But because of the size of the hole, can’t get his hand out. Monkeys are stubborn creatures, although all they need to do let go of the sugar and they will be free, they keep a hold of it and the captors come and take them away.
I love the simplicity of this story and what it speaks to us. What sugar is in your life that you are holding onto that is preventing you from entering your destiny? The bible has so many examples of people who ‘let go of the sugar’ and saw God work in miraculous ways. Mary, the Mother of Jesus let go of the sugar of the judgment of the world, Joseph let go of the sugar of wrong accusation, Moses let go of the sugar of not being able to speak….. The list goes on.
Our prayer is that as you wait on the Holy Spirit when you pray, allow Him to identify the ‘sugar’ that’s in you life that’s holding you back from fulfilling your purpose. And we are excited about the testimonies that willGlorify our God.
God bless as you live a sugar-free life!!
