Tension In The Two
There is great significance in the number two, and at the beginning of the year, we spoke about 2020 prophetically believing it’s the year of double-double or plenty-plenty. Looking at the year and its current state, it may feel as if the year is holding more trouble. God is, however, not finished yet, and God will still use this year to work for your good (Rom. 8:28).
Throughout the Bible, there are many examples of the number two and the tension between two. God placed Adam in the Garden with two trees, and he experienced the tension between the two. Adam and Eve had two sons, and Cain lived in the tension between God accepting his brother’s offering over his offering. The Bible also teaches us about the reality of two wisdoms, the Godly wisdom from high and earthly wisdom from down below.
Through Jesus Christ and the empowering of the Holy Spirit, we can live lives that God desires for us. We experience tension when we are placed in the middle of choosing between the desires of the flesh and God’s will. At all times, we should be led by the Holy Spirit, giving us wisdom to make the right choices. Our choices are a reflection of our character, and while we are experiencing the tension of the two, God is allowing us to operate in free will learning to choose His ways above all else (Matt. 6:10).
Every time we are placed between two options, we have to decide either we do what God wants us to do or we follow our desires. With every choice we make, we should choose to exercise and implement heavenly wisdom rather than to allow the desires of the flesh (Gal. 5:16-17) to distract us from the plans God has for us, for His plans alone are good and prosperous (Jer. 29:11).
