I need to confess something to you guys. I love watching
MasterChef Australia. I don’t know if it’s because I used to work
in a restaurant or it’s because I love food. The fact remains, I love
it. So I was watching an episode the other day where three
contestants where in a pressure test.
For those of you who don’t watch MasterChef and have no idea
what a pressure test is let me explain. The chefs who cook the
three worst dishes of that week go into what is called a
“pressure test”. Whoever loses that cook off will be eliminated
from the competition. So as you can imagine it’s pretty hectic.
Anyway, let me continue my story. There I was watching the
three contestants in the pressure test and the judges and special
guest came over to one of the contestants to check on what they
were doing but the contestant was confused, like blank, no idea
what the heck was going on. Instead of trying to help the
contestant the judges and special guest moved on to the next
I am going somewhere with this, please bear with me.
After the judges moved on I believe God spoke to me in that
instant. “I don’t do that” was what I heard. At that time
that was exactly what I needed to hear!
You see, I have been dealing with a certain issue and it’s been
hard. I have been figuring out what to do. I have been trying to
look for another way. I lost my peace at times, got worried
and beat myself up.
I never asked Him for help because to be honest, I am the one
that caused the problem in the first place. So I thought He didn’t
want to help me. (crazy right!)
Anyway, back to MasterChef, the judges left and that thought
came to me. I felt God saying He is not like those judges. He
isn’t on the sidelines watching us.
The judges could have easily helped the contestant but because
of the rules of the competition they didn’t.
But I felt God saying He is not like them. Because He is God
He wants to help. God is not bound by rules. He loves us so
much and doesn’t like seeing us stressed and worried.
He wants to come and help us when we are confused, when
we have no idea what the answer is.
Don’t make the same mistake I made then. When you
are in trouble call to Him. He doesn’t want to be a spectator
in your game (life)
He wants to be in the thick of things with you helping you, guiding
you and directing you. You don’t have to keep fighting alone.
Call out to Him because He will come and help get you out of
the mess you are in!
