The Storms of Life
Sandy Hoskins • February 16, 2020 • Sandy Hoskins
We all experience storms in life, which are caused by a number of different factors, which include the devil, circumstances, other people, our own choices and the words we speak. Storms can distract us from the purposes of God and at times cause us to isolate ourselves. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus throughout - He will never fail us!

Psalm 133 details the goodness and pleasantness which unity brings into the church. The Psalmist makes 2 major comparisons, comparing unity to the flow of the anointing and also to the dew on Mt Hermon which nourishes and waters other regions. We are called, as followers of Jesus to keep and guard this unity, in order to experience all God's blessing in our own lives and in the lives of others.

In order to attract the anointing in our lives, we, as Christians have need of the five ingredients as represented in the anointing oil used to anoint kings and priests: meekness, uprightness, humility, inner cleansing and continuous infilling of the Holy Spirit.
The Heart of the Matter

Words are containers of power and have creative or destructive power. We are encouraged to examine the condition of our heart for our untamed tongue, rather than "zipping the lip". As our tongues speak from the overflow of what's in our hearts, we need to guard our hearts by taking some practical everyday truths which we can apply to our lives.
Living in the Present

As new creatures in Christ, we are called to forget the past, reach forward in vision and direction and live in the present being endued with power, on a day by day basis. Putting off the old man, we are to put on the new, to clothe ourselves with the inherent attributes of God.
