Good morning! Yesterday we dealt with busted frozen pipes and a burnt out furnace motor. After the immediate repair and direction for dealing with this I sat later contemplating the blessings God gives us in the form of emergency situations.
 
God tests our resilience. He tests our readiness. He tests our ability to act with a level sense of decisiveness to accomplish a well defined goal. In each situation God builds us up to improve our ability to take on more and better things. He answers our prayers for help in using His own Word to build us up and enables us to stand.
 
The emergencies we face in life often don’t allow us to pick our circumstances. We are hit on various sides unexpectedly, blows coming like a boxer throwing punches. We deal with life by wholly leaning on God’s Word, by preparing our hearts and minds gleaned with the preparation of the Gospel. By putting in the whole armor of God described in Ephesians 6, we are better prepared for the “busted pipes”and more, of this life.
 
God is good. We have in Him the victory that overcomes the world. Grab a mop.
 
Coffee may be a bit late.
