HE NEVER LET GO
11YR OLD ZACHERY WAS PLAYING IN HIS BACK YARD WITH HIS PUPPY. THEY WERE PLAYING FRISBEE. WELL WHEN THE FRISBESS CAUGHT AIR IT CIRCLED BACK AND LANDED IN THE WATER OF THE CANAL BEHIND HIS HOME. NOW HE KNEW HIS MOTHER SAID TO NEVER PLAY NEAR THE WATER. BUT HE DID NEED TO GET THAT FRISBEE.AS ZACHERY MADE HIS WAY TO THE WATER TO RETRIEVE THE FRISBEE. HE HAD TO GRAB A TREE AND EXTEND HIS FOOT TO REACH THE FRISBEE. AS HE DID THAT AN UNSEEN ENEMY CAME UP FROM OUT OF THE WATER AND TOOK HOLD OF HIS LEG. THE ALIGATOR WAS 5 AND HALF FOOT LONG AND WEIGHED MORE THEN TEN TIMES THE CHILD’S WEIGHT. AS HE CRIED OUT IN AGONY HE SCREAMED FOR HELP. HIS FINGERS BEGAN TO SLIP AWAY FROM THE TREE. THE GATOR BEGAN TO SINK IT’S TEETH FURTHER INTO THE BOY’S FLESH. THEN WITHOUT WARNING THE GATOR WAS BEING STRUCK WITH A SHOVEL. AN ARM WRAPPED AROUND THE LITTLE BOYS WAIST AND HE LOOKED UP AND SAW HIS MOTHER SCREAMING AND WACKING THE GATOR. SHE WAS PULLING WITH ONE ARM AND WACKING WITH ANOTHER. WHEN THE SHOVEL CAME DOWN AND SLASHED THE GATORS EYES IT LET GO. THE MOTHER GRABBED THE BOY AND RAN IN TO THE HOUSE.
AT THE HOSPITAL WHEN THE DOCTORS CAME IN. THEY BEGAN TO EXPLAIN TO THE BOY THAT HIS LEG WAS BROKEN IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT SPOTS BUT THE GOOD NEWS WAS HIS LEG WOULD HEAL. THE BOY ASKED A STRANGE QUESTION…..WHAT ABOUT THE SCARS ON MY LEGS???THE DOCTORS PAUSED AS THEY THOUGHT HE WAS CONCEREND ABOUT THE APPEARANCE. WHAT THE BOY SAID NEXT WAS EXTRODINARY PROFOUND…I WANT TO KEEP THE SCARS. WHEN THEY ASKED HIM WHY. HE ANSWERED BECAUSE IT SHOWS THAT MY MOMMY NEVER LET GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All of us here are like that boy. We have had many times in our lives that we can look back and see the scars of past mistakes. The scars where the enemy has latched hold. Many of us believe that the Lord has forgotten us. THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS EVENING. THAT IN SPITE OF THE LIES YOU HAVE HEARD GOD HAS NOT LET YOU GO!!!!
JONAH 1-17 2-1-10
In the belly of a fish It would be easy to think that God has let you go. Until you cry out to him…
2 CHRONICLES 7-14-15
To many times we get so caught up in our mess. We forget to humble ourselves and bring it before God…
1 Peter 3-12
We have a Father in heaven that has an attentive ear. Just like the mother hearing hers sons cry she swiftly came to the rescue. Our God is ready to act…..
I love the word all and then in the very next verse it says everyone……That means no matter what you are facing there is no condition that fails to meet the requirement of grace….All means All…
Now let me ask you a question. Was the gator that attacked that boy in his mind….No it was very real.. Even though other people couldn’t see it after the attack it made no difference. The existence of the enemy was evidence by the results of the attack….The same is true in our lives. We can deny the enemy is there yet it would only prolong the attack and in some cases lead to our destruction.
There is an enemy..1 Peter 5-6-9 Ephesians 6-11-13
The hard truth is we all fall we all have times of rebellion. Like the boy ignoring his mothers warning landed in the jaws of the enemy. Just like our lives we ignore the warnings of God. I have heard many people say that there is no devil or hell. Yet they accept Jesus and the word of God as truth. Well the bible describes very clearly the enemy. He is very real. The good news is our Father God will never let go and the enemy cannot stand against him…..
