My heart cries because my gifts can’t be used where they are supposed to be, for the reason they are blocked with the artillery of defence and the attacks by others before me.
I would like to relate this to war as we know it today. An enemy attacks, people are killed. A peacemaker comes to camp or through the media to try to make peace. The peacemaker is not believed because the one that was attacked has been hurt. The war goes on.
Ok! A physical war may not relate to you. What about physical pain. I have had pain in my left leg for a long time. After a CT scan, they found out there is a separation and slippage. I reviewed my options. The doctor said the best way is to treat it conservatory with medications. I am still not at peace because the pain goes on.
Where has peace gone? Why doesn’t the war stop? I was reminded from the Sunday Church service that Paul the apostle said the things he wouldn’t do, He finds himself doing those things he shouldn’t. Is my sin different to Pauls or for that matter the same as others? Paul the apostle had the problem with covetousness.
I guess the war goes on in our lives inwardly and it begs the question of what war is going on in our lives. And what peace can I have knowing that God’s work is hindered because of an untrusting spirit?
As I searched my heart, I can only come up with one answer. When I get to heaven and in the glory of His presence, it‘s only then I will know why an untrusting spirit and the war that we endured was present in our lives.
Having peace in the presence of God is the only peace I can have to conquer the war I am in now.
It’s now your turn. What do you think?
