Uncommon Places


Being a parent you come accustom to SOME of the things your kids like. One of those are animated movies. We are quite the movie junkies. One of our favorite movies is Kung Fu Panda. My kids can watch the same movie over and over again and still look at it as if it were their 1st time. The other night they so happened to be watching it and as I was in the bathroom doing my hair something dawned on me that I never thought about before. As I was listening, the Master named him as the Dragon Warrior. I heard all the remarks of others questioning the decision that was made. They judged him by his outer appearance and assumed he couldn’t handle the task at hand. They had no confidience that he could do it and neither did he. Their custom was when the scroll was opened by the Dragon Warrior he would be given great powers. When Kong Fu Panda opened the scroll nothing magical happened and there were no great powers given to him. All that was there was his image. He then realized that the power lied within himself. Once he realized that he believed in himself to be the Dragon Warrior and once he believed it he conquered everything that came in his path and saved his town. It is obvious to know where someone strengths lies when it can be seen from the outside. It is when we can’t pinpoint what is obvious that throws us off. We have lost and ruined a lot of people because we judged and misjudged what we thought people posed. Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” Thank God He doesn’t think like we do. He uses uncommon places to store His greatest gifts, talents and anointing because no one can take the credit or get the glory out of what isn’t obvious to man. The next time you try to judge some one’s capability by their outward apperance remember David slayed Goliath and Sampson ripped up the city gates with his bear hands.
