God Blessed Morning Family!
A man that builds a fence or wall to keep people out will succeed in creating an illusion of security but He will also mentally, physically and Spiritually block out the good that God has placed before Him. When we drive down a street and see security bars on all the windows of the homes and tall fences or walls surrounding each home it is instinctive to check to see if the doors to the car are locked. For the vision of fences, walls and security bars give an illusion that the neighborhood is unsafe and in need of security. This is what we do to ourselves when we put up walls around our heart thinking that if we are careful to not let anyone in that may harm us we wont be hurt. The truth is that when we put up fences and walls in our Life we are saying that we lack trust and Faith in God to not only protect us but to send the right people our way. God has given us instincts as well as senses to know when it is appropriate to engage in fight or flight, He has also given us His Unconditional Love, Protection, Mercy and Grace to guide us though all difficult situations so much so we do not need to guard ourselves with walls and fences for they only serve to block what He is providing. "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." Psalms 23:1, 4 Follow your instincts and use the tools in which God has given you and you will Know that there is no need for fences and walls for God is your guide throughout this journey and He will lead you to where you need to be. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah. Lifewateringwords.com
