My favorite drink at Starbucks is an Apple Crisp Macchiato.
It’s a seasonal item that’s only available at Christmastime.
This past January, after my favorite drink had been discontinued, the associate goes out of her way to create a drink to see if it would taste like the Apple Crisp Macchiato.
She uses brown sugar to try to duplicate the drink. It doesn’t work.
On another occasion, an associate uses apple juice to try to duplicate the drink. It doesn’t work.
The Apple Crisp Macchiato cannot be duplicated. No matter how hard they try, there is no replacement for the Apple Crisp Macchiato.
Just as there is no replacement for my favorite drink, so also there is no replacement for God. There are some things in your life only the LORD can do.
