So today, I had an interesting conversation with my best friend about Newtons Laws of Motion. Ok, so it wasn’t really a conversation but more so her teaching me the concepts, just as she would with her middle school students. As a side note to this blog, ladies and gentleman PLEASE GET SOME SMART FRIENDS.lol The Bible says that “iron sharpens iron” and if you continue to surround yourself with folk who cant stretch you, you should reconsider your crowd…but that’s a whole other blog.
As she broke it down for me, I couldn’t help but to think about how spiritual these concepts were, and that perhaps Sir Isaac Newton was spiritually influenced in his thinking. You decide for yourself:
Take two minutes to read and STRETCH your mind…
Newton’s first law is the inertia law. If an object is at rest, it will remain at rest unless an outside force acts on it. If an object is moving, it will continue to move in a straight line at the same speed until an outside force acts on it.
My understanding of this: God will move YOU when and how HE wants to move you, period. While we may make plans for ourselves, God, as the outside force will act upon those plans and change our paths in the blink of an eye.
His second law states “that the force needed to accelerate an object equals the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration” or in other words “It takes more force to accelerate a more massive object.”
My take: The bigger the call on your life, the more force God will use on you. Whether that is a push to move you out of your shell, or straight discipline and tough love. Whatever the “hit” is, trust God that his Grace is sufficient enough, as noted in 2 Corinthians 12:9 and that He is only doing it because you are hand chosen. If you have been feeling the force or pressure…give Him the praise for being one of his anointed.
“The statement of Newton’s third law is deceptively simple. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The terms action and reaction refer to forces”
This law makes my mind spin so many different ways, but the best understanding that I can articulate is that for every force on your life, (whether that is a force from God or a force from the enemy) there is an appropriate consequence. So, for every blessing God gives me, there needs to be an appropriate blessing of Him on my lips. For every fight the enemy picks with you, there needs to be just as hard a fight (With God at the forefront) against the devil and his “forces”. Does this make sense??
I know I probably thought waayyy too deep into this, but well, I’m a teacher at the end of the day.
