I just published the last video in our series One Minute Bible Facts, and I’m sitting on the edge of my seat wondering and praying what it is God would have us do next. I’m feeling the direction is to continue the One Minute series focused on short scripture lessons, but I’m waiting for clarification on that. I think there is a great deal we can learn in one minute, especially in todays fast paced world where our attention is drawn in so many direction throughout the day.
I suffer from rabbit syndrome. Diagnosed with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD at an early age, I often call this rabbit syndrome because those of us affected are like little kids easily distracted from a task at the sight of a rabbit. So I chase rabbits all day. For a guy with many balls in the air at one time, it means I’m continually dropping a ball to go chase a rabbit.
The reason I share my habit of chasing rabbits is because I also suffer from servant syndrome. What’s that you ask? Well, I serve our God and I hope you do too. Have you ever heard the saying “God never gives you more than you can handle.” That’s a half truth because God continually gives you more than you can handle, but He expects you to lean on him for help. He wants you to lean on him.
Serving God in ministry, and we’re all in ministry I hope, means taking on the burden of God’s many commandments, or assignments even when our plate is already full. Even those in tune with listening to God, find it’s important we pay particular attention to what we’re being told to do so that we don’t confuse His plans with our own plans. God expects us to prioritize, and that means His plans come first.
I have the blinds closed at my house so I can’t see those pesky rabbits, and I’m listening hard for God’s marching orders.
