There are many buttons on a computer keyboard that have different functions. There are buttons that take you forward and buttons that take you backwards. There are buttons that can delete and buttons whereby you can escape.
On our earth journey there are many buttons we can push to help us go forward or take us backwards. For instance when we live by faith n God, we always make tremendous progress toward our destinies end. Paul tells us in his writing that he fought a good fight, that fight was a fight of faith and he finished his course. This proves to us that faith in God will cause you to go forward. However we can opt. to press the fear button which will always take you backwards. Fear is a hindrance to our faith in God. If you choose to allow fear in your life it will ensnare you and cause you to lose courage and shrink back in terror. God did not call us to be soldiers so that we could just hide out in the fox holes of life. God wants us to be bold and courageous, on the front lines, marching in step and on time with His plans.
There are also delete and escape buttons in life. Many times when people don't want to deal with hard situations, fiery darts from the wicked and storms of life they try to escape. They fill their lives with amusements and various entertainments to try an forget the problem. Sometimes people try to escape through drugs, alcohol. sex, food, gambling or other different vices. However the escape button never can get rid of the problem it only builds a smoke screen so that the problem is temporarily hidden from your view. When the smoke evaporates the problems is still there, sometime worse than before. The scripture says,"How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;" Hebrews 2:3.
The only true terminator of life's troubles is the Word of God. God has provided for us everything we need to have good success in this life however it is our responsibility not to neglect our help.
Life is short, so make sure you push the right buttons, so that you will end up, at the right place, at the right time and fulfill your God given destiny!
I agree life indeed is very short, in fact too short. Therefore, we must press the forward button and pursue with vigor and gusto what God has for us while it is yet day*ReplyDelete
