Due to our human nature of complacency and what takes place when we lose our perspective in why we are here is when storms tend to come into our lives in order to bring us back to the very beginning. See it is very easy to take for granted what we have until it is taken away and unless we maintain our balance within the Word of God then we better prepare to be thrown around in the wind.
Don’t get caught up in the lives of one but learn to look at the body through the eyes of the Lord to see how we are all just a individual cell. Each cell can be broken down into different atoms and these atoms represent our surroundings from our homes, our work, our church, our community and our nation. It is when allow Satan to misguide our focus that we tend to forget the commandments of God. When we neglect this is when an infection can set up in the body that can grow out of control until it is brought to our attention.
Like any infection sometimes they have to be washed, scrubbed or even removed to insure that we get to the root of the infection that is affecting the overall body. This life is not about external growth or material wealth it is about the internal growth with God that carries us forward. It is when we forget this that we better prepare for what is sure to come in discipline to correct the infection before it deteriorates the overall body…Amen
Here is a song by Casting Crowns that will help in any storm…Praise You In The Storm
