1 Samuel 2:3 “Boast no more so very proudly, Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and with Him actions are weighed.”

 

 

As we know all things are common to man.  That means anything that is happening to you is not out of the ordinary.  So when we use the cliché’ “You have no idea” that is simply not true.  Why then do some individuals enter into these so called “common moments” and end up in crisis while others do not?  Firstly, most of our “serious frustrations” are produced due to external events.  The reason these events become serious is due to our lack of exposure to development in dealing with whatever it is; so it throws us off balance. 

Yesterday we were looking at the importance of not “saving” everyone from their development and allowing God room to work on His creation as He sees fit. Today we are going to look at why.   

Let’s say Crisis is an actual person, these would be his character traits:  anxiety, self-blame, frequent sense of personal failure and guilt.  When you look in his photo album you can see that his whole life is nothing more than one problem after another.  There have been many people in Crisis’ life who truly love him.  They understood the tremendous emotional impact this was for him and how this was diminishing his ability to see problems in order to stop this insane journey he was on. They desperately posted warning signs, tried to close roads and anything else they could do to clear his vision but each time he would simply put up blinders and hit the gas pedal.   So….things could never be different and soon he was too far away for them to even reach. Now Crisis travels the roadways without breaking, he is oblivious to oncoming traffic – so YOU must beware as you travel.  If you and he come to an intersection in life there is going to be a catastrophic collision at that moment I pray that God intervene and the weight of his choices not fall upon you.

 

Tomorrow we will review something from deeply dealing with examination skills.

 

Today, write about how Crisis “missed you by that much” when he zoomed through your land.

 

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
