ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL

GOD IS GOOD – ALL THE TIME!  ALL THE TIME-  GOD IS GOOD.  I encourage you to say this to yourself at least three times a day.   But most of all, say it like you believe it. This is not some sort of mantra that is used in meditation.  This is an affirmation – affirming a Biblical truth.

I got a better understanding of this Biblical truth during a conversation with another brother in Christ who was experiencing some marital difficulties.  He told me that he wanted to give up.  That’s when it came to me.  What do people do when they come to a wall?  Most of us would try to climb over it; when that fails we attempt to break through it; if that fails we might try to dig underneath it or try to walk around it.  These were the answers I was given when I asked several Christian friends what they would do if faced with a trial or challenge that was like a brick wall.

 

OVERCOMING AN OBSTACLE

The funny thing was when asked what would you do if you faced a trial in your life that was like a brick wall, not a single one of my friends said, ” I WOULD ASK GOD FOR HELP.”  Are you getting it?  We love to go it alone, although most of us hate to admit it to ourselves.  We would rather go it alone and say look what I did all by myself instead of asking for God’s help or ,for that matter, the help of another Christian.  Instead we’d rather give up and go back to what we were doing before we hit the wall. But when we do this, we just add another brick to the wall making it even more difficult to over come.  And believe me, there will be another time you’ll face that same wall.
