See the Possibilities and Not Your Weaknesses

Daily Devotional

Proverbs 30:26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;

Correct your vision by choosing to see what is possible, rather than what you see as your failings.

For us as humans, physically building a house upon rocks can be a most difficult encounter, so much so that heavy equipment and machines typically have to be brought in to help make it possible. Nevertheless, coneys, which are regarded as weak and feeble, are still able to accomplish the same feat. Although the structure that conies build are not comparable to that of a human; nonetheless, it is still a significant accomplishment given their size and little strength. It stands as a reminder that there is nothing that you cannot do when you do it with God.

One lesson that we can learn from the conies is not to look at your limitations. As humans it is typical for us to focus on the areas in which we think we fall short, by doing so we send ourselves the message that what we are pursuing is not possible. The coneys on the other hand do not see their weakness, they see possibilities. Rather than spend time looking at your weaknesses, choose to see what is possible.  A picture of what is possible is the vision that God has given you or the accomplishments of leaders in your field. “What man has done, man can do.”

Life Application: Every time you find yourself telling yourself what cannot be done, remind yourself of what others have done. There is no reason why you cannot do it, if you do it with God.

Prayer: Lord, help me to have a different perspective and to learn the lessons that you have provided through things that we consider to be weaker or insignificant. In Jesus name, amen.
