Art of Living #40

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #40 : "Pray without ceasing." (1 Thess 5:17).

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Many times when a burden is in your mind regarding a failure or some mistake that you have made during the day, before sleeping you should evaluate it and try to GIGO and VIVO it. By now you might be beginning to think what this Greek word vivo and gigo means. Ha,ha..It is not a Greek word, but a acronym that we are going to discuss inorder to effectively practice these two principles for leading a successful spiritual lives. The first principle GIGO is to learn from our mistake that we have made and by choice throw it out from our mind. Once we continue to think over the same mistake we have made even after we have learnt the lesson from that failure, it becomes a worry that will try to become a garbage in our mind to make our life ineffective. Satan and his demonic minions are specialists in making us brood over our failures long enough to make us pitch our tent in the high seas of worries, until we become too depressed. Don't live in your past and miserably miss the present which is a gift from God. So first use the GIGO principle, Garbage In Garbage Out. In other words, the useless failure is processed to take valuable lessons out of it and then the garbage in throw out.

Then if you stay quiet after throwing our your garbage of worries out, the master technician Satan who specialises in bringing garbage again and again in to people's mind will surely make you miserable. So you need to apply the VIVO principle to stay in the virtue of peace. VIVO means Virtue In Virtue Out. What does the Bible say about VIVO? Apostle Paul who wrote one third of the whole New Testament Bible teaches VIVO saying, "6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Php 4:6-7). We need to take the virtue of the peace of God in to our mind and let it rule us from inside out. This will happen if only we choose not to worry by giving to God all our failures, worries, fears and mistakes we have made through prayer and supplication. Prayer is giving to God once, but supplication is waiting in prayer until God answers by His Peace which is God's refree who will clearly indicate that we have received what we have prayed for.

Sometimes if the same worry remains when we wake up in the morning, it means God wants us to continue in supplication so that at the end of it God might answer us in a powerful way. When sulky and depressive thoughts attacks you in the morning, know that it is from the enemy who wants you to think that your problems are unsolvable by God. It is a lie, do not believe the enemy and lose you battle for that day. Instead know that God is waiting for you to supplicate continiously so that when the spirtual material that God expects out of you arrives exactly, the same moment God will send His deliverance from the demonic attack upon you. You might ask why should God allow such a fight to go on to the next day? You should understand that God is too concerned for you to leave you as a spineless, soulish and unfruitful child of His, but He wants to prove to the world and to the angels in heaven that you are His son who is capable to handle His fire power through preseverence in believing His Promises. God will never lead you to a place where you are in want, but when he has led you, you can be sure that God will make His grace so available to you that you will say like David, "I shall never be in want." The next time you make a mistake, GIGO and VIVO it to make your failure a stepping stone of your future success.
