Spiritual Balls- Use em or Lose em
It is important to always remember that Our Heavenly Father is the giverither and takeawayither of spiritual Balls.
When you were born again you received a set of spiritual balls to begin to be able to accomplish what God's will for you to accomplish in your lifetime was and is.( both male and female are given these "Spiritual Balls"). These balls are given to us to enable us to do what he commands us to do.
Some are given a tiny set. Some are given a small set. Some are given a medium set. Some are given large ones. Some, XL . Some XXL . And so on.
The thing is though, if we do not use, or are not using the spiritual balls we are given, regardless of size, they are taken away by God and given to someone else who will use them.
If you are born again, that is to say, you believe Jesus the Christ and you abide in him and he in you, and you attend a church building or don't attend a church building , I assure you that you will encounter some spiritually ball-less individuals. Some haven't got any and never will. Some have lost their spiritual balls because they did not use them. The only way for one who lost their spiritual balls to regain them, Is first they have to admit to themselves and another person that they lost them, second is to go to God and confess their sin of not using the spiritual balls they had been given and third, is to humbly ask God to give them another set. And yes, it is a sin to not use the spiritual balls God gives us, regardless of size. Keep in mind that a number of pretenders and imposters exist in our churches and pulpits as they do everywhere. No church is immune. No town is immune. No city is immune. No state is immune. No country is immune. Pretenders and imposters , ones who claim to be born again but are not , don't have spiritual balls. They can only have pretend spiritual balls or pose as if they had real ones. They envy in secret those with real spritual balls. They will want you to be like them and will carefully and methodically lead you to walk on the same path as they. Keep alert by the power of the Holy Spirit.
You might be asking yourself," Why do people who are born again not use the spiritual balls they are given, and why do they lose them if they do not use them". I'm glad you asked that Question.
The answer to the first part of the question can be summed up in two words, FEAR AND PRIDE . They are an evil and corroding thread and the fabric of this system of things in which we exist is shot through with them. They set in motion trains of circumstance which purpose to crush the faintest flicker of faith that begins to show itself in the heart of the believer. Fear and pride can manifest in many ways but I assure you that in almost everyway they manifest , fear and pride are the chief destroyers of the joy and liberty to be found in walking hand in hand with Our Creator. THEY MUST BE OVERCOME. And they can be. To the precise extent we allow fear and pride in our lives , we squander hours that might have been worthwhile. THERE IS A BETTER WAY TO LIVE . Humble yourself before God. Trust and rely on him. Trust infinite God rather than relying on self. We are in the world to play the role He assigns. To the extent we do as he would have us do, and humbly rely on him, does he enable us to match calamity with serenity. Never apologize to any for depending on Our Creator, Jesus the Christ. Smile at those who think spirituality the way of weakness. Paradoxically, it is the way of strength. The verdict of the ages is that faith means courage. Trust Our Heavenly Father, YAHWEH. Never apologize for trusting him. Instead, let him demonstrate through you, what he can do. Ask him to remove fear and pride so that he can direct your attention to what he would have you be. And by the power of the Holy Spirit you WILL commence to outgrow fear and pride . Your fears and pride of self , WILL fall from you. You WILL be able to look others in the eyes. You WILL be able to be alone at perfect peace and ease. You WILL begin to feel the nearness of Our Creator. Although you may have only believed in God, You WILL begin to know, love and experience him. You WILL feel that you are walking hand in hand with the Holy Spirit of the universe. If you are painstaking about humbling yourself before God, you WILL be amazed before you are halfway through. You ARE going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. You WILL not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. You WILL comprehend the word serenity and you WILL know peace. Humble yourself before God and no matter how far down or high up the scale you have gone, you WILL see how your experience can benefit others. You WILL lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Your whole attitude and outlook upon life WILL change. Fear of people and economic insecurity WILL leave you. You WILL intuitively know how to handle situations that used to baffle you. Humble yourself before God and you WILL come to experience the fact that God is doing for you that which you could not do for yourself. You may think that these are extravagant statements . I KNOW THEY ARE NOT. They WILL be fullfilled, sometimes quickly and sometimes slowly. Humble yourself before God and they WILL always materialize. Continue to be on the watch for fear and pride . When they crop up, ask God at once for assistance. It is relatively easy to let up on this spiritual course of action. If you fail to keep yourself humbled before God, You WILL be humbled before God by time and circumstance. You can take these preceding statements to the bank.
The answer to the 2nd part of the question as to why we lose our spiritual balls if we do not use them is this. They are a gift from God and God expects a return from the gifts he blesses us with. To those who use well what they have been given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But to those who don't use what they have been given, even what little they think they have will be taken from them and given to one who has already proved faithful in using God's gift.
I might be beginning to ramble on a bit so I'll wrap this up now.
(1) Size doesn't matter. What matters is that we use the spiritual balls we are given.
(2) We can humbly request a larger set of spiritual balls to be used to the glory of God, If we have faithfully used the ones he gave us.
(3) I already told you what you have to do if you lost your spiritual balls due to lack of use.
