An Angel with a Measuring Stick

Morning Thought: An angel came to the Lord with a measuring stick. He said, “I have measured your child and he is NOT growing.” The Lord responded, “Send him some trials.” Another angel came to the Lord regarding another person. He said, “I have measured your daughter and she IS growing.” The Lord responded, “Send her some trials.” What is the moral? Trials help you grow; they are like spiritual fertiliser. Trials also keep you on track when you are growing; they are God’s way of pruning a healthy plant. And since your Father has all wisdom, he knows the perfect time to stop the intensity. Have you thanked God in your trial? (My inspiration: Zechariah 2:1-2)

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
