“The Anything” – A single moment, one situation. Anything that happens to us.
“The Everything” – A complete paradigm, our entire world view. The manner in which we structure our absolute truth.
(Father, Please allow your anointing to flow through this blog let it minister to the people’s hearts who read it that it would show your love and light where darkness is. -Amen)
How often do we allow for one moment of situational reality to completely shape our destiny? Road Rage being a good example in my life. I remember somebody once cutting me off in traffic and then I became so enraged in that moment that I completely lost all care and concern for my “Everything” that I was willing to spend the rest of my life in a jail cell or worse because of the level of angry I got about this one person cutting me off. I literally am reminded everyday of that moment when I look in the mirror. The right side of my forehead and head had pieces of glass that tore most of the skin away from it once I hit 70 miles an hour and ran head on into another person’s car while chasing this person down that had cut me off, I was so dead set on avenging my anger on. The “Anything” is this person who cut me off in traffic. The “Everything” was what I turned that moment into. In that moment my entire life revolved around “The Anything” I had lost sight of what should have been my “My Everything” I traded my entire life in and the great things that God had planned for me because some person cut me off in traffic. I should say that I am blessed that all I have is a scar across my face from that day. By the first responders accounts I should have been dead. No seat belt, 70 miles an hour head on collision. Of course that is just one example out of the countless dozens that by God’s grace I am still here.
“My Anything” sure occasionally I still lost in a moment, but through a personal relationship with my “My Everything” Jesus Christ I am a man with the mind of Christ. I am a man after God’s own heart. By the blood of the lamb I am no longer held captive by the old me, I am a citizen of Heaven. I am a child of the Most High.
Questions to meditate on:
Do your emotions determine the mood you are in?
Does the way others treat you dictate your attitude? Or how you treat them?
Do your life circumstances control your attitude and outlook on life?
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
