Okay, so in reference to yesterday’s post:
We find ourselves in the white heat of revival. We find God, truly and completely, and in finding Him, we find ourselves. We know that anything is possible. We can do anything through Jesus Christ. And curiously we find a confidence in self that far exceeds anything that can be trumped up by affirmation mantras or self esteem seminars or success theology.
But then the revival fires cool. The enthusiasm fades. Slowly, almost imperceptibly we return to the fears and cautions of our former life till we find ourselves living carefully instead of carefree. We count our pennies and nickels and dimes. Our spiritual swords lie forgotten and neglected, gathering rust. We live lives of quiet desperation and we think our those other days as foolishness.
But were they? Were they foolishness? I think not. I think it’s better to be thought foolish and be in the center of the battle than to be careful and cautious and safe. Because the truth lies in the white heat of battle, not the safety of caution. The truth is that anything is possible. The truth is that we can do anything through Jesus Christ.
