EASE COMES AFTER THE HURDLES
Mark 3:27 No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
Soccer is a tactical sport hence for underdogs who attempt to upset top opposition, their approach is often to restrict the influence of key players before beginning to cook up attacks of their own. Until this is done, a team is unable to advance with ease.
We read today about the impossibility of plundering a strong man’s abode, or so it seemed ‘no one can expect enter a strong man’s house to plunder his goods’. However, we receive intel about how this might be achieved ‘first, bind up the strong man’.
Before one can pursue particular dimensions in life with ease, ‘strong men have to be overcome’. Not only in a spiritual sense, but some big decisions have to be made and hurdles overcome. Arriving at every seemingly easy road is often preceded by treacherous and demanding obstacles. It takes the one who makes it across the hard road to experience ease further along.
When the strong man is tied, you can plunder with ease.
