The things we breathe in – inhale – directly into our bodies, affect our bodies! Sometimes they are simply annoying, other times they can be down right harmful!
Symptoms start, giving us warning signs that something is not right. Itchy, watery eyes, followed by nasal drainage. Then it gets worse – you start gasping for breath – you start coughing so hard you believe you might actually cough up a lung.
What is the main thing we want to do is 1) get completely away from the source of toxins, 2) clean it up and try to get things back to ‘normal’. But, what if you’ve tried the cleaning and it hasn’t helped? Well, we must somehow remove ourselves from the source.
What is true in the natural, my friends, is also true in the spiritual! God allows symptoms to come on us to help warn us of the danger we’re exposing ourselves to. We can try to clean it up, mask the stink, but until we actually rid ourselves of the source of the toxins in our lives, we will continue to become more and more spiritually ill. It can eventually lead to spiritual death if we continue to ‘ignore’ the problem and allow ourselves to keep breathing in the toxins.
Something to think about.
