One day a farmer’s donkey fell into a well. The animal cried piteously as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him.
They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then to everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw.
With every shovel of dirt that fell on his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and totted off.
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. Do not get bogged down by it. We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping. And by never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!
The Scripture says in Isaiah 3:10,
“Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.”
The farmer gave up on his donkey. His neighbours gave up on the donkey but the donkey never gave up on himself.
THERE IS A SOLUTION IN EVERY CONDITION, NO MATTER THE CONFUSION, GOD WILL SEND HIS PROTECTION.
