Question; which is better your logic, your reasoning, your wisdom or God’s plan, His way and His wisdom? You naturally said God’s plan, His way and His wisdom.
Now here is your dilemma.
Even though you know and agree concerning the correct answer, you are still going to find yourself stumbling along in the darkness with your friends, your colleagues and your family.
Because you don’t follow that which you know is right.
You see, the Bible is so pertinent and prophetic (of course it is because God said it and it is truth) when it comes to our era of living. He said we’d be living in darkness and our light would shine brighter.
Are we not going into the dark night now faster than ever? Do we not see incredible evidence of that in the United States and in the world? Of course we do.
So, when it comes to rising unemployment, a sinking housing market, a spiraling out of control economy and a world in crisis with war on every hand, what do we do? We get impatient with God and fall back into our ignorant habits of following our experiences instead of His plan.
Well-meaning churches fall into the trap of giving courses on how to live better during these times having foundations built on the principles of the world. Non-profit Christian organizations begin to enable those who live in darkness by helping them adjust to the darkness instead of giving them a candle.
So, what’s the answer?
You have to develop patience, discipline and strong faith to become that which God desires in you through the power (some refer to it as the translators of the KJV did as grace) of the Holy Spirit. You have to decide for yourself if you’re going to live that which you believe.
If not, you’re going to keep stumbling, fumbling and mumbling.
You’re going to listen to those guys on TV talk about how to get ahead in life. You’re going to continue to send out one billion resumes. You’re going to begin to use the vernacular of CNN, CBS, ABC, and NBC news. Then when your way doesn’t work out – YOU’LL FREAK OUT!
I’ll put my brand of Christianity on the line always when it comes to the world’s system of doing things. It works for me.
That’s what I think about it.
