Oh To Be Wise Meditations

The tension point. Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. LORD, there is a tension point we all face in our faith. The pressure to conform or not conform. The tension to believe and not believe. If I faint in the day of adversity then my strength is small. I need supernatural strength to get through the tension points of my life. When don't see break though I need to stay strong. When I don't see healing I need to still believe. And when I don't see answers to stop doubting. The tension in my soul feels like I am being stretched so tight that my flesh will fall me. My spirit is willing but my flesh is weak, and I hate that about myself. I can be so close to the presence of God and then be so far that I am willing to sell my birthright into the Kingdom for a fleshly piece of desire. Oh tension point where faith meets reality. Will I stand? Will I resist? Jesus is my strength when I strain. He knows my limits and He will stretch me, applying the necessary force I need to actually really live a holy life. Jesus does not want me faking a holy life, He wants me to live a life in the power of the Gospel and so I can truly have peace in the results.
