Have you considered why the 04-16-07 VT Tragedy occurred? What about why 09-11-01 happened? Could there be specific reasons why tornadoes are so prevalent this year or why floods are historically devastating in the middle of the U.S. (and even in other parts of the world. like China)? Why is it currently cooler in the Eastern U.S. and so hot in the western U.S.? What are the forces in place that bring about these things?
One of the most well-established principles in the physical Creation is the principle of Reaping and Sowing. This is related, but not quite the same as the principle of cause and effect or of Newton’s third law of motion summarized as: “to every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction.” GOD has Created and established a delayed reaction in time to many of the actions that we take. This operates not only in the physical realm, but also the emotional and spiritual realms. We recognize this principle easily through agriculture. When you plant a particular seed, this will lead to the growth of that seed in time and whatever product or fruit that will eventually come from it. Incidentally, this defies the idea of evolution being true and will serve to teach us in every area of life if we desire to learn.
Scripture makes it clear that GOD warns us to fully consider this principle:. Galatians 6:7 says: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” This text goes on to explain how this applies in the non-physical realms as well. What you do, no matter how small, does make a difference! It also makes a difference if you fail to do something, as there are other forces in this world that are at work.
What are you sowing or failing to sow that would make a difference? What are you reaping or what will you be reaping (there is that delayed time between sowing and reaping)? There are other forces at work in this world too and our actions and inactions even impact them. Check out the other blogs and items on this website. You may wish to view the related blog entitled, “Thinking Why?” Know that things do happen for a reason, though we may not always realize exactly why. One day, we will know and we will realize how all of our actions and inactions have impacted others. Are you ready for that day?
