His eyes and hands have not been trained to weave the cord in and out of the turns and loops that were obstructing the length and full potential of the cord.
As I was helping him, the Father showed me something.
How many times have I come to Him, asking Him to help me untangle a situation, and I still try and hold on and fix it myself? I keep my hands intertwined in the mess, because I am just not quite certain that He is completely capable of fixing it.
He is though. Masterfully trained and capable of taking whatever mess you find yourself tangled in today, and using it for your complete good. It doesn't matter how big it is, how much it may be your fault, how long you have tried to untangle it on your own.
If you will take your hands out of the mess and lift them up towards your Father, He will come, pick you up, and use His wisdom, truth and grace to lift you and set you on solid ground.
Romans 8:28 (AMP)
28 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.
Psalm 86:15 (AMP)
15 But You, O Lord, are a God [who protects and is] merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and truth.
Psalm 40:2 (AMP)
He brought me up out of a horrible pit [of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock, steadying my footsteps and establishing my path.
