Everybody Knows You Get Honey from Wal-Mart!

Sometimes God can be so ignorant (don’t get all mad because I sound irreverent. . . hang with me, I am making a point).

A few days ago I read this: “. . . with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” (Psalm 81:16)

God is speaking to His people, calling them to listen to and obey Him. In turn, He promises to give them honey from a rock!

Isn’t that crazy!?!?! God sure can make things too hard on Himself can’t He? Everyone knows that honey comes from Wal-Mart!

Nothing can come from rocks. They are Hard. Dry. Still. Lifeless. Unbreakable. Stony. . . Well, Rocky.

It’s impossible for honey to come from rocks.

That would be like God making an impossible – rock hard – situation possible.

That would be like God bringing joy from a Still, Lifeless, Dry, Stony, Unbreakable circumstance.

That’s like God saying He can bring remarkable goodness from an impossible problem.

 

Anybody staring at a rock?

God can give you honey from it. He’s God. He will do everything He can to satisfy.

Give Him your rock, step back, and watch Him work.

He doesn’t need Wal-Mart. He can make honey from rocks.
