It’s critically important to allow ourselves to engage in the process, to go through what we need to go through to complete the cycle or season we’re in. There’s a story of a little chick who’s living inside an egg, and every day that little chick pecks against the shell, peck, peck, peck. She doesn’t know which peck is going to be the peck that cracks the shell, but nonetheless, little chick faithfully engages in the discipline of pecking and pecking, and while the chick pecks away, it’s growing, and building up its skeletal frame and musculature. One day, a little child comes along and hears that little chick pecking away on the inside of the egg and thinks the chick is stuck and wants to help!We must be equally as committed to the process as we are to the end result.

So the child cracks open the shell and when he takes out the chick, the chick dies, because the child hasn’t allowed the chick to go through the full process to develop it’s neurological system and musculature. The chick hasn’t grown to full term to peck its own way out. It’s the same with us, sometimes things seem slow, and we either want to quicken the process for ourselves or others, but we must go through the entire process, because that’s the sure way! Simply put, we must be equally as committed to the process as we are to the end result.
Help us continue helping others!
Genesis 8:22 (NKJV)
“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.”
Mark 4:26-29 (NKJV)
“The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
James 1:23-24 (NKJV)
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
