I was thinking about an article I read a while back about a man in Kansas City, Kansas by the name of Wesley Fitzpatrick.
It seemed that Fitzpatrick applied for a temporary restraining order against a female whom he said was stalking him. Fitzpatrick claimed that she was making him “scared and depressed and in fear of my freedom.” The judge granted the restraining order but later rescinded it when Mr. Fitzpatrick showed up to ask that it be made permanent.
It was then that the judge discovered the so called “stalker” was actually Fitzpatrick’s parole officer and her “stalking” was her simply fulfilling her lawful supervision.
Not only was the restraining order cancelled but they arrested Mr. Fitzpatrick for having failed to keep his appointments with his parole officer. I thought to myself; this guy has more nerve than a toothache.
I have met people who would like to get a restraining order against God. His presence makes them feel guilty and in fear of their freedom. But it’s not because of who He is, it’s about who they are.
But as Wesley Fitzpatrick discovered, a restraining order won’t work and in this case the punishment for not keeping your appointment with God is more than you will want to pay.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
