If I were to ask you what your theology was regarding the Kingdom of God, how would you respond?  If you are like a lot of people, you would have no idea what I was talking about.  It seems as though we have lots of theology about everything else but not the Kingdom.  I find that a little odd.  Do you?  Maybe we need to talk about why it is important.

Disarming Trouble

Eliphaz, one of Job’s “comforters,” hit the nail with his head when he said,

6 For affliction does not come from the dust,
    nor does trouble sprout from the ground,
7 but man is born to trouble
    as the sparks fly upward.  Job 5:6 – 7

It’s true.  We generally do not have to go looking for trouble, trouble will find us without any help.  The good news, as stated in my last post, is that we are at the mercy of no one but God.  Therefore, depending on how we respond, we can actually disarm trouble when it comes knocking and turn it from a stumbling block into a stepping stone.
