Storms of life: It tests the foundation of your faith.

Houses, buildings, and other infrastructures are built everywhere. But depending on the kind of soil they were built, they were designed to ensure safety when natural calamities come.

Countries which are situated along a “typhoon or hurricane belt” and “ring of fire” had their houses and buildings tried by fierce winds and earthquakes. These calamities test the foundation of a building.

In our Christian life, storms of life come to test our firmness in our faith to God. Have we been truly rooted in the faith?

Others can take harsh criticism but cannot withstand trials of faith and they fall along the way.

And some have the scars of battle in life but rise victorious for the storms of their lives made them strong.

Storms of life come to shake you. It tells of which your Christian walk is loose and needs to be tightened.

Job 1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

Like Job, when devastated and shattered by the storm of life; we may not swerve in serving God but be found standing firm in the faith.

No neutral ground

Every day people make choices for good or bad. No one takes neutral ground. The scriptures tells us an event which happened between two personalities in which a choice must be made. During the Crucifixion of Jesus,Pilate ask them whom they want to be released to them: Jesus on the one hand representing God almighty and Barabbas on the other hand representing the devil.

The Jews made a choice for Barabbas, the robber representing the devil. They soon forgot the scripture in John 10:10 that says <q>the thief commeth not, but to steal kill and destroy, i have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly</q>

The implication of this action is that when you reject Jesus, you automatically ask for the thief to come in different ways. The truth is that many have rejected Jesus. No one stands on a neutral ground because Jesus died for the whole world. Rejecting Jesus is voting for Barabbas which  is embracing a thief. Consequently, you become a child of a thief or a friend of a thief and eventually will become  thief.

You cannot be neutral, you must make a choice between Jesus and the devil, the thief. Your  choice goes a long way in determining whether you will enjoy salvation and Gods belessing or you recieve condemnation and curses.

Morning Wordspiration

Ambition blinds one to justice.

There is nothing more pitiable than to see a man the victim of an inordinate, selfish ambition to advance himself at all cost, to gain fame, or notoriety, or pleasure, no matter who is sacrificed in the process.

Better to run with a vision than to strangle yourself with ambition. Ambition not compassed by vision is motion is no specified direction. It can lead to outcomes not really desired.

As you command the day in your prayers, may you receive the light of inspiration for clarity of direction that leads to success.

Good morning and have a fulfilling day.
