As I was all spun up about a situation, I thought about Job. You know, Job could not be touched in certain areas of his life because God had a shield of protection around him against the enemy. The only way that enemy could touch Him was through permission from God. The enemy was fully aware of the hedge and he knew he was limited to what he could and could not do to Job. He could only touch Job in the way he did after the hedge was moved.
In the end, Job was blessed double for enduring hardness as a good soldier. He kept his faith strong although he did not understand his dilemma in the beginning. In the process, He gained understanding. In the hard place of life, he gained revelation. Instead of leaving God, He stayed with Him. Thus, the trials were a teacher to him.
To be truly honest, sometimes getting all spun up is truly the only way I know how to behave and I am learning to behave differently. I am learning that I must look at my situations and circumstances with a different eye of understanding. The hand of God is there to teach me and the enemy is present to destroy me. This is what I must remember the next time I get All Spun Up.
