God is great, is He not amazing? The truth, the way and the life. If God is the truth why do we listen to others and not to Him. I have come to notice that people tend to rely on people and not on God. We are more likely to look at people’s answers instead of relying on the character of God. I do understand and as I mentioned in a previous blog post that we will never fully understand God, but I truly believe that God is the same yesterday, today and for all eternity. So why do we then sometimes mistake the things people tell us for who God really is?
To me there is always an easy way to look at things, there is a right way and a wrong way, you either do it, or you don’t. So why do we sometimes prefer testing how far we can reach into the grey area, because we are not 100 percent sure if it is wrong or right. This is where I believe our generation has made massive compromising decisions to what they do. Trying to test how far they can go before they actually know it’s wrong. We try and complicate things too much in life. That is why I don’t like the grey area, it creates confusion. If we look at God, what is His example? He is good and Satan is evil. He is light and Satan is darkness, He is the way to life and Satan is the way to death. There are only two choices to make, the wrong one…or the right one. Ok, I know, we don’t always know what the right thing is, but if you don’t know if it is right why don’t you just leave it, why do you have to go and see how far you can go to make sure if it is wrong. We have to have confidence in our choices and that they reflect God 100 percent.
Be careful to what you receive from people. Don’t always agree with them, ponder and meditate on what they said, before you form your own decision. Reflect it back on God’s word and His character to see if it corresponds with who God is. As I said we will not always know the right answer, but we can never doubt God, for He is the same yesterday, today an for all eternity. God will not lead you into something for you to sin. He will lead you into things that will make you prosper and flourish.
It all comes back to your relationship with God. You have to spend time with Him and in His word to know the truth and then respond to the truth. The better you know Him the less confused you will become and the more confidence you will gain in who God is. God is so good, and all that He does is good. So don’t let people and situations mislead you to whom God is. When bad things happen and people link it back to God, it’s not God, because God is good, He is light and in Him there is no darkness, He is not the designer of evil and sin, He is the one that brings life, freedom and peace.
There is a need for change in the leaders we are generating, we need leaders sold out for who God is and what He teaches us in His word. We need to raise a generation that is ready to surrender everything no matter what the cost. We should start living the true example of Jesus. And the best way of doing this is to know The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. His word teaches us that the people shall perish because of a lack of knowledge, we need to know God so that we know how to be like Him. To know when people talk a load of rubbish, to know when people are setting the wrong example of who God is. Get to know God, so that your reaction can be one of a Godly lifestyle. Don’t just take what people are teaching or telling you, but ask God what does He think and compare it to who God is and to what His character is like. To put this blog post into a one liner, don’t feed from people, feed from God.
* Glory to God for being the same yesterday, today and for all eternity.
