Grandpa’s Heavenly Cake

Two little boys are telling their Grandma how “everything” is going wrong: the bully at school, their parents grounded them, and they have colds.

Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. She asks the boys if they would like a snack, which of course they do.

“Here. Have some cooking oil.”
“Yuck,” says one boy.”
“How about a couple raw eggs?”
“Gross, Grandma,” says the other.
“Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”
“Grandma, those are all yucky!” they said in unison.
To which Grandma replies:

“Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves, but when they are put together in the right way they make a wonderfully delicious cake! God works the same way. Many times we wonder why he would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him and eventually they will all make something wonderful!”

Choosing your Heavenly Heritage

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh” – Ezekiel 36:26.

In life, we have negative things happen to us. We go through situations that are unfair. I know people who were raised in an unhealthy environment. Their parents had issues, and now it’s making it much more difficult on them.

But here is what I’ve learned: when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, He gives you a new heart. In other words, your blood line changes. No longer are you subject to your earthly heritage, you become subject to your heavenly heritage! His spiritual blessing always overrides the curse in the natural realm. When you understand who you are and what God has already done, then no matter what someone else has done, no matter how unfair it was, no matter how you were raised, you won’t get bitter. You won’t live with a chip on your shoulder. You realize that nothing can stop you from fulfilling your God-given destiny!

Today, remember you came from Almighty God. He gave you life. When you choose Him, you are choosing your heavenly heritage of blessing and eternal, abundant life!
