THE BALANCE OF LIFE!
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches: To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. Revelation 2:7
AS MEN OF HONOR!
The balance of life: When we remain in balance we have achieved good health in spirit, in mind, and in body, but balance is not always so easy to maintain, in fact part of staying in balance, or in good health has much to do with an acknowledgement that we are constantly in a war, and that the elements of this world are continually battling against our spirit, attempting to pull us away from God into what is unhealthy for our life. Furthermore, if we should decide to deny that any such war exists we have already thrown up our arms in surrender to our spiritual enemy, and when we react without restraint and wisdom, and try to overcome in our own strength then we shall fail to follow God and to hear what His Spirit has said to us.
WE ARE AT WAR WITH THE ENEMY OF OUR SOUL…
Jesus told this to Peter and He is telling us the same, as we read,
“And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.” Luke 22:31
There is a war for our soul, but Jesus has prayed for us that our faith fails not! But we must do our part, and our part is in acknowledgement and awareness, and a resisting of hiding our life in the sand. We shall overcome by Him that is in us! We are at war with our spiritual enemies and it is only through Jesus that we shall prevail and have balance in life! Only when we cry out to God will we be saved. Only when we decide that He is all that we need will we be content in our life! We can fight, and we can win, because of Jesus! Through Him as we read,
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19
When we admit to ourselves that we are in this war, and when we label our enemy, identifying who this is, then we can develop a strategy to defeat him through Jesus Christ who is able to save us!
TO HIM THAT OVERCOMETH WILL I GIVE TO EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE!
