The other day, I tried to make some cornbread for dinner, but it turned out to be a miserable FAILURE!
I put it in the oven and then left the house, for just a few minutes, to run some errands. (Umm…I guess you’re not supposed to do that!)
I came home to a smoky kitchen and a little black dried up brick-like thing in my oven.
The rest of my dinner was ready, but now, I don’t have any cornbread. So, I mixed up ANOTHER batch.
The instructions said to bake it for 25 minutes at 425. I can’t WAIT that long! I want it to be done in 15! So, I just raised the temperature up to 450 degrees to compensate.
When I took it out, it looked pretty good on the outside. But on the inside, it was gooey, GROSS and totally inedible!
You know, God has a plan and a process designed to help us fulfill our dreams. HIS TIMING is always perfect. But sometimes, we get in such a hurry that we get out ahead of Him.
That NEVER works!
When we’re stubborn, when we refuse to follow His instructions, when we try to rush things and go it alone…our dreams can fail!
Don’t settle for something that’s HALF-BAKED!
Wait upon the Lord! God wouldn’t have given us this passion and desire unless He already had a detailed plan to BRING ALL OUR DREAMS TO PASS!
Have you ever gotten out ahead of something God was trying to do in your life? How’d that work out for you?
