The atmosphere of joyfulness in life is often associated with a honeymoon, and the atmosphere of sadness or distress often likened to poisoning. In Fact, the sadness is given by the Lord as a virus or bacteria into the body to form antibodies

Honey and Poison in the God's hand

In this context, Honey is a symbol of joy, grace and sustenance of life as well as honeymoon of the bridal couple having time just for their intimacy and joy. Some believers believe that they have life experiences getting relationship and joy with God through their physical abundance and spiritual blessings. These blessings are generally measured by assessment of treasure, wealth, position and power. They thought that God had given thanks; they had been the opinion to enter a period of honeymoon with God, because He had given everything.
Ironically, people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. (1 Tim 6:9). As a result, they face some of the problems in life due to the act itself such as sadness, distress, suffering showing the honeymoon is over and entered in grief and pain, like a body attacked by the amount of harmful toxins. At this time, humans can feel the prayer is part of the struggle, one day like a month; a month is like a year waiting for God's help. Whereas the poison is given by The Lord as a virus or bacteria that entered into the human body to form antibodies as vaccines so that the body becomes resistant or immune to the disease. No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthian 10:13). This is our responsibility. On the other side we have the faithfulness of God. He does not permit us to be tempted beyond our strength, but provides a way of escape in order that we may not stumble.
When we try to understand the life experience, a lot of the success of a person over the pleasures of the world such as Career, Power, and Wealth can be achieved beyond our abilities, but sometime we claim that all our own efforts. Human framed excessive confidence. The success was considered to be solely cause of own strength, not require the strength and power of God. Unwittingly, this situation has formed a barrier as a building wall sealing the spiritual eyes of the heart of man to see the work of God. The atmosphere is only apparent joy, joy in praise of people, and the joy in the physical and spiritual arrogance. Praise and arrogance have brought into the realm of greed. With the pursuit of wealth, power and spiritual life of choking (Luke 8:14), and brought into temptation and desire to harm (1 Timothy 6: 9).
Honey and poison it is essentially formed by our own deeds. Many people have realized his mistake, repent and testified that he was detached from the situation sake God's help. Distress situations that are considered toxic it turned out to have changed someone to turn to God. God works where there is an attitude of faith. That's the way of God to work for the rebuke of His people.
