Isaiah 43:2
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Homeostasis is defined as “the tendency of a body to seek and maintain a condition of balance or equilibrium within its internal environment”. This will remain true even when the body experiences external changes. For a great example of homeostasis, look at the human body; it can maintain an internal temperature of around 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, no matter what the outside temperature may be. This is what homeostasis is.

Now take that into consideration when you look at the Christian life. Christians are no less exposed to the turmoil of the world: they have financial trouble, they get depressed, they have sickness, they might even have more trouble than the world. So what is the difference? The Christian, abiding in Christ, in the Word, and living for Jesus, should come into a homeostatic state. Even though the storms rage on and the dark clouds rise, that doesn’t worry the Christian. They are in Christ the solid rock and nothing in the world could hinder them.

A born again Christian can maintain the same sweet Christian spirit, no matter what people say against them.  That is homeostasis at work in the Believer. Regardless of what trials come, they can maintain the atmosphere of the Holy Spirit, because it comes from the inside out. It is something that keeps you, you don’t keep It. That is the power of the Holy Spirit abiding in your life.

Let the Lord keep you today. When you get frustrated or “out of whack”, let His Spirit bring you right back into order.

57-0324 - “Why Some People Can't Keep The Victory”
The love of God, God is love. And unless each one of these gifts is put right in the center of love, it'll become selfish and indifferent, and pull itself off, and isolate itself, and cross over, and fuss and stew. But when it's anchored right into the middle of love, it'll fellowship everywhere. And that's right. That's exactly what we need. The church is dying for love, brother.
