(Read Ecclesiastes 10:10)
How many times have you done the same thing over and over again and you come to the point that it just stops working? Come on, be real with me. You can cook an amazing roast beef and mashed potatoes with gravy, but if you make it every day, it’s going to get old. If you do the same thing every single day with your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend, resistance is going to come. If you raise your kids the same way every single day even though they are growing up, there will be resistance.
Let’s go back to Solomon’s advice. “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed.” Everything in life needs to be sharpened. To sharpen means, “to seek different strategies to achieve an objective”. It’s time to pause and think for a moment if you are having to use more strength because your ax is dull. You are going to grow tired.
Take a minute to identify those areas in your life that need a change how they are being operated. Sometimes changing things can bring challenges, but I encourage you to be bold because you will see a great change.
Remember, sharpen your ax.
Father, help me identify the areas in my life that need to be sharpened. I want to be a good Christian, that gives good fruit for Your glory. I know that I can count on Your favor and Your great advice. I place my life in Your hands. In the Name of Jesus, AMEN.
