PREPAREDNESS

Approaching 100-degrees today and after reading a extreme-weather safety report online, I feel compelled to do a little COOL weather -vs- spiritual walk compare/contrast for all you readers. Be blessed.

-During this extreme heat, the most important thing is to keep cool and avoid additional stress on your body.
During these extreme times, the most important thing is to keep near to the cross and avoid additional stress on your soul. 

Here are some important tips:

Plan for the summer heat!

  • Check your local weather forecasts for temperature, humidity advisories, and UV indexes.
  • Check regularly on family, friends or neighbours who are at higher risk (meaning elderly, sick& shut ins, etc.) of heat-related illnesses or don’t have air conditioning
  • If you take medication, check with your doctor or pharmacist regarding side effects during extreme heat
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Avoid drinks that contain alcohol or caffeine
  • Do not leave people or pets unattended in a car
 
Plan for persecution!

  • Be prepared prior to, by reading the Word of God and being informed w/ the absolute truth. 
  • Check regularly on family, friends or neighbours who aren’t as far along w/in their walks & in turn may not be able to take the heat and cave. Expose them to the truth at all costs!
  • People need medication & you have access to the cure. Make sure the God in you shows at all times. You’re the only piece of Him some will ever see. 
  • Stay energized by praying w/o ceasing. Avoid crafty tricks of the enemy. Don’t allow anyone to feed u lies when u have the truth at your fingertips.
  • Do not leave people high and dry b/c of frustration. Jesus Is Lord & we must magnify His name…even in rejection.
 

Stay Cool

Psalm 150:6 says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!”

Praising God should be our nature. Our reasons to praise are unable to even be numbered. We praise Him for all He’s done, but also simply for all He is and forever will be. By far, there is NOTHING cooler than SALVATION! The fact that we have a chance at it is truly a testament of God’s love toward us…His grace…His desire for us to be at His side forever. Satan hates God and us and wants with everything in Him to distract us from the prize because he desires to torment us and those we love, for eternity. Yes, it’s that deep! So the above compare/contrast was a simplistic how-to, if you will. 

We make sure we’re prepared for so many what-if situations of this world…as we should. From heatwaves to terrorism to house fires to abduction; we never want to be unprepared for what could be. Well, as believers, we know FOR SURE that we will all die one day. We know for sure that Christ will return one day. We know for sure that Christians all over the world are facing persecution and that it will intensify as the end approaches. So, let’s treat our walk seriously. Be Bold & Fabulous about it! Let’s get, be, and STAY prepared for all that is to come, and do it all to the King!

      Thanx for reading and commenting Ify. I tried something a lil’ different with this blog post. But I had to think to hard, so probably won’t be doing the “tie in” type again any time soon. lol
