The Catalyst: It's role is small but so important!
When a person is working with liquid epoxy it's usually a two step process; the polymer and the catalyst. One mixes in a small amount of catalyst to the polymer which creates a chemical reaction causing the mixture to harden and solidify.
It may be equal to half of the mixture or in some cases its a tiny amount mixed in with the whole that is enough to accomplish the process.
God uses catalysts in our life all the time. We need to recognize them, accepting them and integrating it in with the change that it brings. Mary's obedience comes to mind. Mary the Mother of Our Lord was the catalyst to making it possible for the Sacrifice of God in the flesh on the Cross for our sins. It also balanced out that spotted history where womanhood went wrong with the serpent. Her obedience. immediate obedience made all the difference in the world. Your obedience one way or another affects someone else (not just you) like or not. We are all connected because nothing is separate from God, except Satan and Hell. Wherever God is not there THEY are!
Catalysts come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they are the actions taken by others who react rather than respond; their rashness brings about a change that effects are unalterable for them and for those whom they affect. A catalyst can be a bad thing done to you by another that you allow Christ to trans mutate. A catalyst can be a good thing that occurs but somehow causes a massive change. The Christian knows that all trials come to prepare us for something and that even the worst situation or circumstance has a blessing attached. That's like a consolation prize just for participating in life.
When you begin to look just a layer or two beneath the surface of things you will see what I mean. This is where things get lodged in our epoxy. When we are daily in the word, in Gods will, in His obedience; that epoxy and polymer become clear, untainted and strong beyond belief. It can become your shield as well as your looking glass. Allow God to work within you shoring up the boundaries and borders of your world so that nothing harmful attach itself to you.
So, this is how we get one thing clear! Our SELF, clarity in Christ for sure starts with obedience.
Heavenly Father, let us come before you able to receive and anxious to absorb your goodness. Your righteousness cleanses us and your Word replaces every erring thing that exalts itself over you. Search the recesses of our being to help point out that areas where we need to remove our will and allow yours to inhabit. You are so faithful to perform all the things that your Word promises, we need to fully realize this (that you can not fail) Therefore obedience to you is a winning arrangement where you are governed and guided within. Lord, thank you for always being there, at the center of my everything. In your Holy and Righteous name we honor,Lord, praise, honor and petition thee AMEN!

38And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
27And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
13(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
1 John 2:5
5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
11If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
16In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
