Dr. Earl Warrick of the Dow Corning Corporation made an interesting discovery in 1943. As World War 2 raged on, he worked tirelessly to find a substitute for real (and much more expensive) rubber. The result? Something we played with as kids… the combination of boric acid and silicone… Silly Putty. You remember Silly Putty right? When you pushed on it, you could change it into any shape you wanted. And when you stretched it out too far… it would snap.
Have you ever felt like that? Pushed on… bent out of shape… pulled to the point of breaking? Many do. Scripture has good news for us… In Joshua 1:9, it says “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Today I challenge you… for the next 24 hours… believe and live out this verse…
Believe that you are strong through God’s power.
Believe that you can be courageous because He protects those He loves.
Believe that you can live fearlessly because God holds the future.
Believe you are never alone because He is with you…even in the darkness.
Refuse to allow life to bend you to it’s shape.. Believe and let God mold you into the person you were created to be.
