WISDOM: WHEN GOD TURNS UP THE HEAT 7/17/08
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT HEAT: This fact was
documented on Modern Marvels, they had a test in 1963 in
NASA. Researchers found that when the outside
temperature rises up to 95 degrees, a person can make up
to 60 mistakes an hour. Bringing the temperature down
5 degrees, reduces the number of mistakes to 9 per
hour. So they using these cooling vests for race car
drivers, fire fighters, astronauts, surgeons, military
and now in football.
PARABLE: I have found that in the worst tests of
my life, (when the heat is turn up in my spiritual,
physical or emotional life) that I make a lot of stupid
mistakes. Weakness has taught me to constantly pray
over things and lean on God to help me.
I understand that when God turns up the heat, it is for
the purpose of flushing all those impurities to the
surface. And that is when we start making more mistakes
than usual. Walk in the fear of the Lord, don’t trust
in your own strength and pray that you do not fall!
1 Cor 9:24-27 NKJV
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run,
but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you
may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize
is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a
perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.
Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I
fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my
body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have
preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
