It's Just A Little Thing!

What makes us so stubborn, so hardheaded that we allow all common sense to go out the window and do what we think is right when in reality it is wrong and we know it is wrong and we go ahead and do it anyway.

How often have we known in our heart something we were doing was not exactly right or pleasing to the Lord but we say, ďItís just a little thing. It wonít effect me. It wonít hurt others." But then that little thing takes on a life of itís own and all of a sudden it consumes us and not only us, but others. It spreads and brings destruction.

Just entertaining a little anger can lead to a path of destruction. A little bitterness and a sharp tongue can produce words that are like knifes that cut deep and produce wounds of the heart, the soul and the spirit.

There is often in our lives many things that we allow to fester, to become infected. It begins to the destroy the area around it and then it begins to spread. How we heal it, how we treat it, will determine what is going to happen.

Are we going to just let it continue to fester, to become infected, let it spread, to become rotten and put off a putrid oder or are we going to be honest and open with the Lord and allow Him to deal with those little things?

The anger, bitterness, hatred, lust, fear, a sharp tongue. Are we going to allow Him to deal with those things? Are we going to allow Him to apply the healing ointment of His spirit to the wounds, the hurts, the pains. Are we going to allow Him to remove those little things?

Are we going to wake up and realize that there is a battle for our minds, our thoughts and our spirit? To realize how we think effects the way we live. The Word of God says that we are to put on the mind of Christ. That is action on our part. We have to choose to allow His thoughts to be our thoughts, His ways to be our ways.

We have to choose to allow the Lord to deal with those little things, those things that will consume us if they are not dealt with.

Let us choose to follow after the Lord. Let us choose not to entertain those little things that will fester and grow to consume us.

Let healing come to your heart, mind and spirit today!

Till later,

Paul
