The Bubble | by Paster Newton Fairweather
You may be asking what is “The Bubble?” It is expected to be the virus free “Iron Dome” that the basketball sport world will be using in Orlando, Florida to finish the NBA season. It is expected that once the players enter the “The Bubble” they are on lockdown. The players will be tested every day, and are expected to maintain social distance except for when they are practicing. Family, friends, couches, club personnel, sportswriters, Etc. are also on lockdown once they enter “The Bubble.” All these precautions are an attempt to keep “The Bubble” safe from the corona virus. It is an unbelievable attempt with many known and un-known variables. There are more questions than answers. I am sure many boxes have been check, still there are many more un-check boxes. No one knows this has never been done. it is one giant experiment.
As I was reading and following this story. I ask myself the one box I have not heard talk about is the GOD BOX. I know that these are some of the smartest people, brightest minds, best players in the world, etc. I know without a doubt there are believers among the group. Foolish as it might sound, this is the deal breaker. It is the difference between success and failure. In every lane of life this is the ultimate deciding factor that determine the final results. Here is the evidence:
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Mat. 24:35
“Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and we will do this or that.” James 4:15
What is needed now is a bubble above the bubble to seal it. It is the type of seal that the smartest people in the world cannot provide. This type of seal can only be provided by prayer and fasting.
“Then Elisha prayed and said, “Lord, please, open his eyes that he may see.” And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elisha”
2 Kings 6:17
When we acknowledge GOD first and his interest he will put our interest and plans first. Sound foolish but it will work. From Genesis to Revelation you see this process in play. There is nothing new under the sun to GOD.
