Opposites or Compliments?

3 Jan

The world we live in is full of opposites and it is believed that they really compliment each other. Light and Dark, Summer and Winter, Hot and Cold, Love and Hate. These are just a few examples of opposites that compliment each other.

There are other opposites we face on a daily basis like good and evil, something that doesn’t compliment the other, but that can be overcome determined on how we accept it. Most things in our life come with a choice, we either accept it as it is or we look for the best in it to make it a positive in out life.

Good verses evil requires something else from us. It requires that we fight for what is best and for some it is a really hard choice. The problem is we know that we can’t have light without dark, or positive without negative and for sure the difference between love and hate is a very thin line. The question is can we have good (love) without evil?

Newton’s third law states for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. Said another way if you push on something, you can expect an equal force pushing back, at least until you give up or you overcome it. Realizing this then evil can be overcome by love. Why? Because they are two separate forces, God is love and Satin is the force behind evil.

Life is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, joy and despair, and contentment or disappointment. Most, but certainly not all, a result of a decision we made in life. It is called free will, a gift given to us at birth allowing us to make our own way in life.

I have always believed you only get out of life what you are willing to invest in it. You can sit back and just let it happen or you can step forward and take responsibility for the direction you want it to take. You actually have a large control on the majority of it.

We have learned through our life that we can choose to be negative or to make the most out our circumstances for the positive. We have also learned that the path we chose sometimes was the wrong path and it led us into a place we wish we didn’t have to be. Sometimes taking a little time to think helps us see the obstacles we may be placing in our paths.

As Christians we know Satin is always going to try to trip us up, give us doubt and stand in our way. We also have learned that when God is with us, no one can stand against us. As long as we have His guidance our paths will be on the positive side. I find it reassuring that even though we will never see the end of evil in our life, we will always have God to guide and protect us from it.

What do you think?

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed

    I think I’m coughing myself to death…really sick. But yeah, Satan is the force for evil, God is our force for good. Good wins in the end; therefore it’s a matter of internally knowing, of faith, that we win in the end because we are HIS!! I relax in knowing this. I can get through whatever as long as He is with me.
