“Pancakes Without Syrup”

By Lance Brown at WhoUWith? Ministries

“Never mind Jesus, we are out of syrup!” -Little three year old, JJ’s prayer, after patiently waiting for pancakes from his mom, only to find out they were out of syrup!

Who would eat pancakes without syrup? Probably the same person who would eat apple pie without ice cream or salad without dressing! There are some things that just go together and syrup on your pancakes is a must. What about in life? We have things that we think should go together. Mommas and Daddies should stay together, but they don’t always do that. A gifted athlete should always get to play, but some get injured and the rest grow old. Young people should not get sick, but some do and some even die way too young. So what happens when things that should stay together don’t and things that should always be are not?

What does God’s Word say?:

I have told you these things so that you would find comfort in Me. In this world, you will suffer; but be courageous, for I have overcome the world! John 16:33 ‘Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10

The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows (recognizes, has knowledge of, and understands) those who take refuge and trust in Him. Nahum 1:7 (AMP)

Life is not very easy and it seems like life gets harder as I get older! There are times when you just want to say “where are you Lord?” or “never mind Jesus!” The reality is that the Lord hasn’t gone anywhere. If anyone has moved it is us away from Him, not Him from us. Also, during tough times the last thing we need to be doing is telling Jesus “never mind”, instead we should be begging Him to show up and help!

When things in life that should be together don’t stay together then that is the time to draw close to Christ and “take refuge and trust in Him”. There will be days when there is no syrup for the pancakes, but there will never be a day when we are beyond the loving reach of God’s “righteous right hand”. Just a thought!
