Taking stock of our souls
It is so easy to see and acquire, but different skills are required to keep what has been acquired. This is true of relationships as well as other areas of life. All around us lives are self-destructing as many seem to lack a capacity to successfully cope with the challenges of life. Having acquired, they are finding it difficult to keep. Sometimes itís the very opportunities of life which become catalysts for our downfall. Such was the case with Absalom, son to King David. Though clearly from a privileged background, Absalomís pride, temper, and a series of personal tragedies triggered his accelerated, premature destruction. Absalom lacked capacity to cope with the challenges of life.
The expectations of todayís Christian are extremely high. Not only are we supposed to successfully manage our crises but also to support others with theirs. Sometimes this results in an overloading of our time and responsibilities leading to imbalances in our soul. Without balanced, sober thinking it becomes difficult to govern our emotions and submit our will to GODís. While an overloading of our schedules is often a mirror of overloading in the soul. Often we only assess and take stock when a major disaster has occurred.
Even as we move closer to the end of the age, the pressures from our environment are expected to be increased. As difficult as we currently find present reality, it may be overwhelming for some to conceive a more challenging future. I believe it is time to stop and access the condition of oneís soul. Whenever GOD confronts a personís wrong behavior HE tends to ask a series of questions. Below are a few questions whose answers may provide you with significant insight into the condition of your soul. Donít wait for a crisis to hit, learn how to take stock of your soul.
* Are you guarding your heart GODís way?
* Can you identify the type of heart you have?
* Do you have evidence to suggest that your soul is prospering?
* Have you consciously stored wisdom and understanding in your heart?
* Is your identity sound in a crisis?
* Can your thinking be classified as sober?
* Do you know how to renew your mind?
* How do you manage trouble?
* Do you successfully use the Spiritual weapons to fight your battles in life?
