This week you will have opportunities to get back at people in your life and God will serve the tortilla of death right to you and to me. Now God is not doing that to tempt us. God does not tempt us. He does that to test us. Because the faith cannot be trusted until the faith has been tested.
God is giving you and me the tortilla of death so we can build the kind of stuff in our lives that he wants us to build. David said no to the tortilla of death. What do you do during those defining moments? What do you do on the freeway? What do you do in the parking lot? What do you do in the Board Room? What do you do in the dating relationship? What do you do when you’re presented with the tortilla of death?
Well, the first thing that the Bible tells us to do is hit the deck and pray. Now I’ll be honest with you because we’re in church right? My first response in the flesh is not to pray when I’m hurt. It’s to strike back or it’s to take the contents of the person’s life put them in a box and garage that and then one day I say to myself, I’m gonna take that box out of my garage and use the contents against that person and when the tortilla of death is served to me, I’m gonna eat it up! (Ed gestures gnawing on a tortilla) And it’ll eat them up too.
That’s my typical response and that’s yours too. But because I’m a Christ follower and because many here are believer’s we can have a supernatural response. Hit the deck! And the first kinda prayer you need to pray once you hit the deck is pray a self-centered prayer.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global Life
