Are You Living In Opposition?

What areas in you life oppose one another?

Many don’t think about this too much. For example, your child is well dressed and your car is clean, however your personal life and home - not s much.

Or maybe your home is perfectly decorated and clean, yet your health or some other area of your life is ignored and in bad condition.

The list could go on to include relationships, careers, finances, addictions and so on. Meaning some areas are almost perfect, where other areas are failing miserably.

Why does this happen in our lives?

Are you familar with Ahithophel (a-hith-o-fell) ? He was King David’s son (Absalom) advisor. David and his son became enemies and Ahithophel gave Absalom advice on how to kill his father, yet Absalom refused it (By God’s orchestration).

“When Ahithophel saw that his advice had not been followed, he saddled his donkey and set out for his house in his hometown. He put his house in order and then hanged himself.” (2 Samuel‬ ‭17‬:‭23‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

It’s interesting he “put his house in order” - then committed suicide.

He was prudent in one area, yet foolish in another. How can we live polar opposites in certain areas of our lives?

I strongly believe that the goal of life is to learn God’s ways for our life - and then implement them in all areas.

Successful balance is such a clean way to live. To know that you give your best in all areas is such a peaceful and free place to live.

No, you and I will never have everything perfect and to try to do so will drive us crazy. However, it’s worthy and wise to at least give all areas our best. It’s a great way to work toward finishing well.

LORD, help us weave your ways into all areas of our life, privately and publicly. IJNIP amen ♥️
