2 Corinthians 2
12 When I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, the Lord gave me an opportunity to preach. 13 But I was worried because I couldn’t find my brother Titus there. So I said good-bye to them and went on to Macedonia.
14 But thank God, who is always leading us around through Christ as if we were in a parade. He releases the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere through us. 15 We smell like the aroma of Christ’s offering to God, both to those who are being saved and to those who are on the road to destruction. 16 We smell like a contagious dead person to those who are dying, but we smell like the fountain of life to those who are being saved.
Reason For This Blog Post
Yesterday, (1-1-2016) I went to let my Dog Cody outside. It was around 6-7pm CST. As soon as I opened the door, I smelled a foul stench of what I can only describe as burning tires. That would not be uncommon, as local residents are allowed to burn trash as long as it’s not toxic (like tires). I looked around and did not notice the usual trash burners having a fire somewhere.
The disgusting smell went away after a few seconds, and I was prompted to do a prayer walk around my property. I rededicated the land, house and vehicle to the Lord and asked the Lord to send his protecting angels here. I later prayed in the house asking the Lord to remove any unclean spirits from within and anointed the door and handles with oil. I asked the Lord to touch anyone who entered the door and give them visions of his might and grace.
I came across this interesting link about the spiritual sense of smell: http://www.lifechurchmv.com/pastorkevin/archives/166
I know nothing about the church or pastor listed on that link. I was not focused on those 2 things, just the information that was presented. This is an example of how we can glean a message from various sources.
May each of us stay focused on the Lord each day, pray for more to come to salvation, read the word and always pray daily for forgiveness of sin. We are all sinners as long as we are in this flesh.
