You and What Army

I honestly think that warmer weather feeds road rage. Over the winter season one tries to drive carefully. Watching the road while trying to not get in the way of those who seemingly have never driven in an Indiana winter. Odd how that at the first sign of tulips everyone pushes the speed limit.

The mirror of God’s Word reflects our lives. We push the envelope with God just to see where it leads. Will he bring the hammer down? Is it this time he chooses to correct? Living on the edge in the fast lane does not always bring the benefits one desires. Just look at the multiple fender benders aka ruined lives.

Romans 8:37-39 tells, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Who knew that when Jesus died for our sins, we would become the benefactors of his death. We can be conquerors and live in his “lane” with his power. With God all things are possible so who is to say we cannot become obedient to his Word by allowing ourselves to be Spirit controlled. The Bible does say in ALL things. Last I checked all meant all.

All includes my anxiety, my unchecked SSA, my lack of faith, my family and friends who tell me I can’t become what God wants of me. It also includes trusting fully in a faithful and steadfast Almighty God who keeps his promises and said he will accomplish what he started. I am thankful that my God doesn’t lie, bend the truth, or twist his words.

So, you and what army will stop me? If I yield to the Holy Spirit, none.

Grace and peace, James
