Capsule for the Day
Generally, every manufacturer knows its products. They understand how they work and they know how to fix them when they are faulty. For instance, Toyota service is better equipped to fix up a Toyota Corolla than a Honda's. The truth is obvious, Toyota knows its own because it manufactured it.
If a manufacturer can fix up its own product, how much more God, the Creator? Can He not heal us of our addictions, brokenness, diseases etc? Or, do we think He doesn't know us or understand what we are going through, the pain, the struggle, the failures, the fears, the anxiety and the like?
The truth is He knows. He cares and He reaches out to heal and to restore. But many a time, we are not just there yet to let Him in. Or, we don't trust Him enough to let Him be God and do for us what He alone can do. We play God, do it our way and afterward blame Him for not being God.
