I was Caught!!

I was caught, caught alive to be dead. Caught in the very act of adultery and dragged Dragged in to the presence of Jesus Dragged while Jesus was teaching to a crowd I do not know what the lesson was about May be it was about Living Waters I was thirsty I stared at the sand, as my accusers were staring at Jesus Jesus looked up
One shouted, she was caught in the very act of sin Law says we should stone her to death What do you say we should do?

Legal and Successful

God had a plan for Abraham and Sarah. It was a plan that would not only change them but the entire human community for ever. As God seemed to work very slowly, they got impatient. Then, they prepared a plan to fulfill God’s plan. The plan was having a child through Hagar, the slave.
This plan was both legal (in those days) and successful (Hagar gave birth to a son). But still it was not God’s plan for them.

Many a time, we discern God’ will by saying there is nothing wrong with this plan. It’s right to do this. Or we say since this plan is successful, it must be God’s plan.
Though it was legal and successful plan, Abraham and Sarah missed God’s will completely. It is often our ‘legal and successful’ plan that stands in complete opposition of God’s ‘best and perfect’ plan.
What ‘legal and successful’ plan of yours is hindering God’s great plan for you?
