Have you found yourself tempted to get in a dither over current events? We could have quite the feast, our plates piled high from the smorgasbord of the enemy. While quite filling, the menu options are extremely unhealthy: stress, strife, confusion, anger, fear, every non-fruit of the Spirit imaginable. We have facts in the natural realm. We have faith in the spiritual realm. We can fuel the negative. We can fuel the positive. Where do we find the appropriate balance?
GOD has done abundantly well as Commander-in-Chief far longer than any of us have been on the scene. Psalm 8:1 – O LORD, our LORD, Your majestic Name fills all the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. What would happen if all GOD’s children suddenly and in harmony began to speak the Name of GOD? I believe in the Word of GOD and the power thereof! I believe it to be Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth! Imagine the change in the atmosphere and the conditions around us if GOD’s Spoken Name began pulsating everywhere! Imagine literally hearing and feeling the heartbeat of GOD all around us!
GOD has given us mighty resources and it truly is possible. We have HIS Living Word. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone. We can speak that same Living Word today and it does not return to HIM void. Or we can speak the enemy’s lingo of death, destruction, distortion, and distraction. Trash talking also sets an atmosphere and it’s repulsive. We can speak LIGHT or we can speak darkness. Which is more profitable? Which is more inviting? Personally I have already done enough stumbling around in the dark. I want to walk in LIGHT! I want to shine LIGHT!
We have the Name of JESUS that is above all other names. The Name at which every knee should and someday will bow. If we exalt HIS Name and share all the wondrous things HE has done for us… our zeal and passion might ignite a spark in someone desperately needing a ray of LIGHT? We have the Blood of JESUS that allows us to boldly enter Heaven’s Most Holy Place. Thanks to JESUS, we can go right into the presence of GOD with sincere hearts fully trusting HIM. There the HOLY SPIRIT will produce this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Why would we ever even consider dining at the enemy’s table? Proverbs 4:23 – Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
