Abiding Above Tension-Part 1

January 2, 2015

 

The Bible teaches us that we are made up spirit, soul, and body. The highest part of our being is our human spirit. Our spirit is where the Holy Spirit lives if you are a child of God. This is where our consciousness is and our intuition. It is also where we can commune with God. But there is something else within us and for the most part it trumps all else and it is called the soul. The soul is where our mind is where we think, and it is where our emotions are where we feel, and it is where our will is where we make choices. 

Now the hard part is this…when you are used to making decisions based on how you feel you can forever be set in that mind set. To begin to live according to the Word of God and controlled by the spirit of God can really feel awkward, almost as if you are losing your sense of security. But, I am afraid this is where most people are.  Just take a look at what is happening in our nation. 

What is happening in the highest offices of our nation today is a reflection of decisions that are being made based on how people feel about things. My friend, to live this way can destroy a nation. We have to make our decisions based on the facts of the Word of God. We are to live for God. God, who put us here for a purpose and who has given us His Word. My friend, the Bible is the only Book on the face of this earth that we know was written by God and there are no errors.
