ARE YOU A WOOD OR IRON?

Describing your own self can be a bit challenging but the words you choose to describe yourself should be positive and self-affirming, of which if positive, can be describe as iron but if negative, can be describe as wood! Your choice determine who you are!

When I talk about the word “WOOD” it simply symbolize any person that does not think in line with your goals. Anybody who envies your dreams, no matter how you hold the person high!
WOOD can be your best friend of yesterday, your Ex!

WOOD symbol of character is the killer of your enthusiasm, zeal or the fire that’s burning on the inside of you! They cannot push you forward, only to bring you down. When you bring any good idea, they can never support it. They will confuse you! They will convince you! And Convert you to who they are. They celebrate mediocrity instead of Exellency!

We must set limits to such people to keep sharp your iron which is the human soul on fire. An “IRON” is the opposite of “WOOD” So always cut off any wood that will chop your Iron until it get blunt which is your power! Setting limit is always cutting people who always comes to drain you of your power by their word.

The fragrances of divine unity are best sensed in the relationship of David and Jonathan, son of Saul. When David was being hotly pursued by Saul, Jonathan sought David out “to help him find strength in God” (1 Samuel 23:16), Iron sharpening iron is an opportunity to fulfill the Law of Christ.

Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” When iron blades are rubbed together, each becomes sharper and more effective. Likewise, when believers are involved in one another’s lives, mutual edification occurs.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 is a similar passage: “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Humans were created for fellowship (Genesis 2:18). When we’re living in healthy fellowship, we rely on one another and help one another. It is often thought that the threefold cord of Ecclesiastes 4:12 refers to two people in relationship who are submitted to God. It is true that fellowship is beneficial for humans in general, but all the more so for Christians (Matthew 18:19-20).

The New Testament is replete with instructions concerning how believers should relate with one another. They are to do good to each other (Galatians 6:10), bear each other’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), forgive each other (Colossians 3:13), restore each other (Galatians 6:1; James 5:19-20), submit to one another (Ephesians 5:21), encourage each other (1 Thessalonians 5:11), admonish and exhort each other (Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 3:13), pursue peace and mutual up-building (Romans 14:19), and stir one another on to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25). The Body of Christ (believers) should be encouraging and edifying one another. When they do, they are like iron sharpening iron or each other. Each believer becomes more effective in his calling. He comes to know God more and to more effectively carry out the good works for which he has been made (Ephesians 2:10).

Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you. A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden. More blessing.

    • You can’t control what people do. You can’t control what they say, but you can control how you respond. My message is very simple: quit giving away your joy. Quit letting the same people upset you. The things that don’t work out frustrate you.
