Don’t Get Constipated

Don’t Get Constipated
Author: Pat Aman

I made a statement to a friend that sometimes we get full of IT! That we sometimes need to take a good dose of laxative. In other words a dose of laxative from the word of God.

When we become so set in our own selves that we do not consider that God is in control, our insides become hard as cement. Our hearts become cold to other people’s feelings and needs.

But, when we take a good dose of God’s Word it will begin to stir our insides around and everything will soon work out. Then we are cleaned out and feel a lot better about our circumstances.

Psalm 51:10-13 says, “Create in me a clean heart O God. And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You.”

This scripture says a lot. Sometimes when we get so bedded down with life, we need a good working out from the our Father God.

Now you know what I mean. When we get well, I just going to say it, constipated we feel miserable. We take some medication and we get worked out and we feel better.

There are times in our life, we think that we are in control. We can handle everything ourselves. We do not need God to help us solve our problems and troubles.

How many times have you prayed for God to take care of a circumstances, then the minute you say Amen to your prayer, you know, the prayer you ask God to handle.

You then get up off your knees and try to tell God how it needs to be handled.

You start worrying about it. You have picked the situation back up into your hands and taken it back from God’s hands.

When we do this, we soon become unhappy. We become stressed. We become constipated. That is when we need to get in the word and down on our knees and take a good dose of God’s laxative. Then when He works it out, we will feel a lot better. Not so bloated and making ourselves and everyone around us miserable.

Today, take the time to pray and read the word and see all the (smelly mess) God will bring out of you as you empty yourself in Him. He can take it and nothing we do smells to strong for him.
