The shakings!

SpillA lady was holding a glass of water in her hand and suddenly someone tried to scare her and she shook because she was afraid and some of the water spilled! Why did the water spill? I will say it was because the glass was filled with water. True! that is partly right because one of the reason the water spilled was because the glass was filled with water, however, another reason was because she was frightened and she shook , making the water to spill from the glass. Most of the times when we are faced with some situations  the way we react are as a result of what we have in us. There are times when a colleague at work or someone spoke to us in a certain way and we are surprised at the way we reacted at that point. This is because we did not know that we had such a character in us. Many at times when this happens, God wants us to see ourselves just the way we are and know that we still have such characters or behaviors in us. We should therefore work on our weaknesses through the help of the Holy Spirit and ask Him to help us exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. That time when you reacted with anger and you said that word you know you should not have spoken as a child of God, there was a shaking and God wanted to open your eyes to see that you still have to work on yourself and ask for His help to deal with anger in your life. That time that someone asked you a question and you lied, there was a shaking! and God wanted you to know that you still have that tendency in you. What you need to do is to ask Him for help in that area so that you can be transformed completely into God’s image. What do you have in you? What fruit do you bear? What type of lifestyle do you lead?  All these things manifest when you are being shaken. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Gal 5:22-23. Let us keep asking God to help us to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in all that we do.
