There are three pairs of words, in the Bible, that I have pondered or meditated on a lot in my adult life. Each pair consists of two words that have characteristics that are opposite. Although two distinctly different words, it takes both words to get a clear picture of what God is telling us. It reminds me of plugging in two prongs into an electrical socket. It can be kind of tricky. One prong is usually different from the other. It requires inserting the prongs in one specific direction for them to work.
When I think of these word pairs, I am convinced that it takes both words in each pair, working together in a specific direction, to get plugged into the Transformer of our lives.
Pondering these three word pairs today may help you to STAND a little stronger in the weeks, months, and years ahead.
