There are so many that try to look to man for answers that God has for us to know and to learn, right in his word. Why look to man for the answers of life when there is no way that life ever was created by man but can be taken away from man. God is the only one that can both give life and take it away. Why look to man who live for such a short period of time, yet those who want to know “truth” seek else where instead of God himself. He is not a distant God, he is an always God, he knows all and sees all, he knows your goings to your doings. He knows what is in your heart before you do, so why waste your time on man who most don’t even know who they are in this world. How are they able to tell you who you are if you ask them? Trust me, actually trust God, because they wouldn’t. Please, the Lord said there is a way that seem right to a man, but that way leads to destruction. Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” That is why it is important to have discernment, to know what you hear is from God and God alone and not from someone’s opinion, not that all opinions lead to destruction but that you want to make sure that God is the one giving you the answer and not a man who only speaks from his flesh and/or heart which could be tampered with and hard as stone.
How is man who gives you the answers to his problem, know anything of yours and tell you what you should do unless it is given to him by God? Every man has his own life and his own path. And even so, why look to man to give you a word where you can just get the same word for yourself from God? Don’t rely on people who you know that lie to you, don’t rely on man because man is capable of all kinds of sin, all kinds of wickedness and we know this by history and by experience, that we can’t even trust ourselves in some things. That is when we know that we can trust and rely on God on all things because he is everything that we need. Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” Psalm 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” Colossians 1:16 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:” Colossians 1:17 “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
Seek the Lord and you will find him, don’t let man turn your way but let God change your heart so you would know to turn his way. His way and his will, will be done and there is no greater will than his, since he is above all and all things is before him and by him all things consist. There is no need to turn YOUR way or THEIR WAY or THAT WAY. All we need to do as follows of Christ is to go God’s way because his way is light and love and mercy. We are not those who chase the wind but are the apple of his eye, his loves, his sons, and his daughters. There is none greater to guide you into the truth because JESUS is truth and when you have him, when you have all God, you have all that you need, you have everything. Get to know him by his love letter to you, the word of God. All that you need to know of him is in the Holy Bible and if he reveals something to you in a whisper, or in the dark, then if he commands you to do so, speak it in the light for all to hear. Matthew 10:27 “What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.”
I am taken back that there are so many people, my own professors, who follow those that are not even here on earth but has been long gone nearly a 100 years ago or more. I am thinking, wait, these man are not alive yet God is and these people who are alive are willing to get their answers for life by men who are dead or alive but mortal??? What would they know of answers when they only experienced some years of experience to tell anyone about truth or life?? It is simple, if they don’t know God they don’t truth. God is truth and life and there is none other to give you PURE life and PURE truth and PURE love than he is able to give. HE IS ABLE. HE IS ABLE. And then there are others who put God in a box and say this is what he will do for me and this is what he do….they only rely on God on some things when he is ABLE to do all things. Don’t let the devil lie to you, God is all that you need. He loves you and he loves all and it is up to those who know of this great LOVE, to love others and not judge but to tell them of the good news. And if they don’t want to believe in this great love, God’s love, then pray for those who don’t know. It is easier said than done but if we just ask God for strength, I know that he will give it to us and we will have the courage to tell others of him (his goodness and his promises) when we are called to, and to reach those who are willing to listen.
Forgive me for the rambling but it was on my mind and I needed to tell someone and who is better to listen than you who reads and listens.
God bless you and God loves you!
