Thought For Today - December 19
 Danger signals!

    The human body is equip with danger signals which serve to alert the senses when it is in trouble or in danger. For example: If we have an infection or a disease in our bodies that could cause us to be in danger, the nervous system sends signals to the brain, in the form of pain or discomfort, to warn us that all is not right within. When all is safe and secure within our bodies, as a rule, we are without pain or discomfort, and we are at peace within our bodies.
    Likewise, our soul has danger signals which alert our senses to the fact when all is not well and healthy with our soul. What are some of the symptoms of an unhealthy soul and spirit? The answer: Lack of peace - uneasiness, frustration, uneasy or uncomfortable when in the presence of sincere, enthusiastic servants of God; uncomfortable when in the presence of those who are praising God, or testifying or praying. If you would prefer to think of more practical things rather than to think of the spiritual, If you cannot get interested in the things of the Lord, If you get bored easily when spiritual matters are discussed, and if the talk of heaven seems morbid, and the fear of bad health or death is always present, then it is time, if you profess to be a Christian, to check up on the well being of your soul. When we are afraid to pray or talk to God for fear of his condemnation, or afraid to speak the name of the Lord Jesus Christ publicly, these and many others are the danger signals of an unhealthy soul. When we have any or all of these symptoms we ought to hasten to the great physician and lover of our souls, the Lord Jesus Christ, and seek healing, pardon and forgiveness, so that we might be found prospering and in good health.
    Generally speaking, the characteristics of a healthy soul is to be always rejoicing in the Lord, offering continual praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. A healthy soul is afraid of nothing, and is careful for nothing, but is trusting in the Lord for all things. The healthy soul is being filled with the peace of God which passes all understanding. Thoughts of heaven are a delight, and death is thought of as another stage of life. If we posses a healthy soul we can sing with the songwriter: "it is well with my soul", and we will love to be with God's people. We will love to talk to God in prayer. We will love to praise God. We will not be afraid of God's judgment because we know that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all guilt. A healthy soul has an appetite for the things of God, we like to eat the meat of the word and feed upon the heavenly manna of God.
    "Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men, the Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God. and the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:5-7.
