The best sermons I’ve heard, and the most meaningful conversations I’ve had with friends about the Bible, have included the subject of “Spiritual Outages”.
I’ve done my own research, and in comparing it to the most recent events that have taken place in my life, I can see how many of us have unknowingly allowed this to happen, and more than we’d like to admit.
My lights had been dimmed, due to various distractions around me, and some of which I’ve already shared in my previous writings.
Much of the last two-years have almost been a blur. I was living in a “hurry up and wait” state of being, and these life-events did seem purposed to distract me.
The enemy is aiming to take us down, and most certainly, take us out; but, I’m learning not to give him the extra ammunition to do so.
As followers of Christ, we have all been warned of the perilous times that are coming, and the dangers of God’s people drifting away from the truth. This loss of spiritual power will take place so subtly that many will not perceive it. Men shall become lovers of themselves, covetous, proud, lovers of pleasures, and more than lovers of God (see 2 Timothy 3:1-5).
Sadly, we are witnessing this in today’s society. Christians are blending in, versus being set apart. Men and women are justifying their own actions and causes for happiness. Laws are being bent to conform to this sin, as families are “justifiably” being pulled apart, and in not holding those accountable.
Have you abandoned your post, and is your life’s mission now at stake?
Are you allowing the devil to steal the very heart of your own Christian testimony, as he is trying to strategically send you into this world in vain?
It is true, there will be no divided hearts in Heaven. Those who enter into God’s Kingdom, will be there because they do want eternal life with Him, and more than anything else in this world.
What are you searching for? What are your dreams?
To change is the act or instance of making or becoming different. The definition of impact is to have a strong effect on someone or something. The synonyms, include: affect, influence, have an effect, have an influence, exert influence, make an impression, act, and work.
Are you making an impact for change?
Placing your relationship with God at the center of your life, and revolving everything you do around it, inviting God to change the parts of you that need it, and making a habit to seek God’s will everyday, as well as following it, then you will notice “the change” in your life.
Choosing Him amidst the chaos, focusing on Him when your world is spinning around you, this will create an impact for change. People will witness what He is doing in and through your life, as your life will bear witness to this.
Listen, He told us it would be difficult in these coming end-times, that is a fact. It is our response in the middle of these adversities that is going to count. Yes, we are going to be persecuted. And yes, we are going to be tried; but, our long-suffering will strengthen our endurance, and in time, it will also strengthen our faith.
What doesn’t kill us, does make us stronger, as each one of us can allow these life-experiences to be an imprint for this change.
