The Flaw of Attraction
I haven’t read the book, but I do know a little about it. The Law of Attraction. And it is a law. God says that death and life are in our tongue – we and we alone get to choose which we want.
Colossians 1.26 and 27 says it this way: For ages and ages this message was kept secret from everyone, but now it has been explained to God’s people. 27 God did this because He wanted you Gentiles to understand His wonderful and glorious mystery. And the mystery is that Christ lives in you, and He is your hope of sharing in God’s glory.
Kerry Shook talks sometimes about what he calls, “the Principle of Positioning.” If we run on ahead of God, or even drag our feet, then we won’t be in the right place at the right time when God gives the blessing. He has also been known to say, “the longer the wait, the larger the wave,” encouraging and exhorting with Isaiah 40.31: those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.
If you’re feeling left-out today, or unnoticed, abandoned or rejected, remember this powerful truth. God is willing and able to share His secrets. He says His secrets are with those who fear Him, Psalm 25.14. I decided a long time ago that I’m not a secret blabber, I’m a secret keeper. And guess what? God shows me His secrets. Sometimes small, sometimes great, but always precious.
Be encouraged today. The REAL secret is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Kari, the secret-keeper
