I know that my family could probably go through boxes of Twizzlers, and Red Vines candy twists on a daily basis with all of the wonder that I put them through. Now I’m not saying that I put them through bad wonder, for when I am in a power faith move, it will make my closest people wonder: remember, I once told the Doctor that he was off by three weeks on his estimated delivery date of my son, and I would not leave the hospital until he was born, now go wonder while you chew on your twist. Anyway, my wife loves the twist the most in the family as it stands to reason that she has the most wonder to chew on. Now I personally don’t really wonder about why I can’t wear white after labor day as if it maybe a violation of my rights, but I do respect if anyone, especially anyone here in Cali, respects whether or not if anyone wears white after labor day. And the power behind respect is that you give the first signal of how your thing will be received: when you unwrap to step out the box, the way that you come out of that box is going to determine if you get respect or not. There will be no wonder here, but if you are still wondering about it yourself, you best wait before you unwrap your gift, and not put that white suit on after labor day. There are many times that we have received gifts from others, but was lost on the value of the gift, and took a while getting around to using it. And if nothing else, go ahead and unwrap your gift, because you may use it sooner if you have it already unwrapped. One of the many times that my wife has found her self in wonder is when it took me over a year to unwrap a natural gift that is now one of my favorite gifts of all time: I just will not leave home out for a run without it, now go wonder while you chew on your twist. It is safe to say that I lost a whole year of additional benefits simply because life was already good, and when a better change up was thrown my way, I put life more abundantly on hold because I was slow to unwrap my gift.
Now there is one group of gifts that I have in which all of them that I know of have been unwrapped, and none of them require any candy twist for me to chew on. And when ever I use them, all I am left with is respect for their results while leaving any wonder to come from those down in the basement. And we don’t want to come up short in any areas of our lives simply because we have learned how to survive using our dominant hand in all that we do. That would be the same as living from pay check to pay check where missing one pay check can flip the smile upside down. But oh what a mighty God we serve, if we would finally just unwrapped the gifts, and let them do what they do: we need to take them into areas of our life that barely has life, and let them give those areas life more abundantly. The big problem is not so much that the gift has not been unwrapped, but it is the wonder that we have about the gift: if we keep the gift wrapped up, we keep the wonder about the gift wrapped up. It is easier for us to chew on the understanding of why our dominant hand let us down, than it is to chew on the understanding of if the gift will let us down, therefore we keep the wonder of the gifts wrapped up. We have more fire power to work with than we know what to do with: God has given us gifts for our foundation (Word), he has given us gifts to be movers and shakers (Power), and he has given us every gift to live in a more abundant life (Will). Since we have all of these gifts and others available to have life more abundantly, why want we just unwrap them and use them to move us up the ladder as they are there to do? The answer is wonder: if we were so sure about the value of the unwrapped gifts, they would already be unwrapped, and being used to give us life more abundantly. So until we stop wondering, and begin to respect the value of our gifts as a body, we as a body will continue to live life without the abundance for which the Lord came that we might have. And I guess the sales of Twizzlers, and Red Vines candy twists will increase as more of them are used to bring comfort to those that chew on why should they unwrap their gifts to have life more abundantly.
