Most of the time our spiritual lives are effected and attacked not from our side but from inside of us… to understand how read the story….
French author Victor Hugo has a short story titled, “93.” In the midst of this tale a ship at sea is caught in a terrific storm. Buffeted by the waves, the boat rocks to and fro, when suddenly the crew hears an awesome
crashing sound below deck. They know what it is A HEAVY IRON CONTAINER that they are carrying has broken loose and is smashing in side the ship’. Two brave sailors, at the risk of their lives, manage to go below and stopped the damage and fastened it again, for they know that the heavy cannon on the inside of their ship is more dangerous to them than the storm on the outside.
So it is with people. Problems within are often much more destructive to us than the problems without.
Above God’s word tell us that they are the
of spiritual life, if we let them live in us they will create much more worse situation than the out side world.
that’s why you need to be careful what you carry inside than what you see outside??
are you carrying anything which will destroy your spiritual journey??? like…
adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
