Computer Parts of the Spirit: CD ROM

Posted by undergroundchurch on May 8, 2010


CD ROM: Yes, most of today’s CD ROMs are really CD/DVD writers, but in its truest form, the CD ROM was and is a read only storage disk that holds information that can be retrieved from the desk drawer.  It is like the cook book in the kitchen.  You use it to get what you want and then you put it away.

CD ROMs are good for storing things that you want to keep for a long time, but don’t access very often.  I have CD ROMs full of files that are 10 years old.  I may or may not ever need them again, but if I do, I know where to go.

During the times of old, the people would sometimes set up a stones called “Memorial stones” to remember something that happened at that spot.  One particular set of stones were set up by Israel after he they crossed the Jordan River into the land of promise.  That memorial stones became a marker to remember the event, not just for the people that crossed, but also for the generations that followed.

Hundreds of years after the event, Israelites, who wandered the land, saw those stones and remembered how God brought them into the promised land and in so doing, their nation was born.

In your own life, you have times and places that can be your own memorial stones.  Maybe it was the day you were delivered from smoking, the day you were saved or the day God healed you.  Whatever those moments, they are forever etched in your memory.

Use those memories to help you when the times are tough.  Remember God’s faithfulness in your life, in the life of your parents or the lives of people in the Bible.  Those memorials can help you through situations when the going is tough.

Remembering the faithfulness of God is the key to victorious living in the times of trouble.
