2 Kings 6:5 (NKJV) But as one was cutting down a tree, the iron ax head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, master! For it was borrowed.”


I think there are unavoidable times in life where we are thunderstruck with the introduction of dramatic dread. Something hits us that isn’t on our radar and traumatizes us into a period where we are vulnerable to making bad decisions.

The man in this verse felt dread when the ax head fell off, but the man with him helped and disaster was avoided.  This is why you need a tribe. A supernatural family of believers that are full of faith and the Holy Spirit. This is why you need a community of Christians. This is why the Bible says do not forsake the assembly of the brothers.

You don’t go to church so that God loves you more. You intentionally connect with the body of Christ so that you can keep loving God when you otherwise would be crazy. Sometimes we desperately need “healthy” hearted people to stand with us and declare the goodness of God in the Land of the living.

You don’t want your life altered forever or even ended because of the dramatic trauma that comes with bad things. The Goodness of God will help you overcome that, and I hope and pray that you are surrounded by Christians who have an agenda for goodness and the love of God towards you.

Proverbs 11:14 (NKJV) Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Declaration: I declare when life brings the drama to me, I will turn away from it and turn to my tribe of believers to help me through the miry clay when I am struggling. I will trust that King Jesus will take the burden on me away.
