Itís easy to be misled in a world that believes randomness rules our lives, but this could not be further from the truth. Your life and daily circumstances are not by chance and either is the dynamics of the world we live in. Every reaction requires an original action that is fueled by a force that cannot be anything but intelligent design. No, Iím not talking about space aliens. Iím talking about a God the Bible says is the lover of your soul who holds nothing back so you can have eternal life. The reason the enemy would have you believe in unbelief is because if you were to start thinking your life has deep meaning, youíd begin to investigate the consequences of your actions that either bless or curse the world around you.
I can see with my own eyes the reaction of a tree bent in the breeze that leads me to believe there is such a thing as wind even though I canít see it. In the same way, everything that moves, grows, thinks, and knows is compelled to do what it does, not by mere cyclical happenstance, but by specific design. We believe in randomness because it gives God the excuse we think He needs to explain those things in this life we don't understand whom a lovely God would not allow to happen if it werenít for randomness. But original sin leaves us with a fallen world increasingly restored by Godís gift of salvation through Christís sacrifice on the Cross of Calvary.
Thereís a season for all things and Jesus teaches us that we wonít understand the natural life without seeing it through the eyes of faith, requiring a spiritual perception only cultivated by denying the temptation of the natural man for higher spiritual realities. In John 3:5 Jesus says no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. There was a time when you were born after your motherís water broke, but have you been born again in the spirit? Jesus said, donít be surprised that whatís born of flesh is flesh, and whatís born of Spirit is spirit. I encourage you to born from above as scripture reveals.
