God is of an excellent Spirit, exceptional, matchless, perfect, superior, unequaled, unique, and unusual. We donít compare in any way or form to His greatness. We do need to be reconciled to His Will, Way, and His Word. God has hid nothing from us, He has revealed himself in every form there is. He is magnificent and worthy to be praised. God is reverential and necessary if we intend to make him our God. Life is what we make of it. If we make it with God it is far better. God will instill within us His love, peace, joy, salvation, deliverance, and eternal life. How much more can we ask for? He has given us all that He is. Why do we conclude that we can accept Him on the last day of our life and enjoy all of Him? We have not figured out yet that He wants us to have all of Him while we live every day. Our days are numbered, yet we decide we will beat God at His own number system. No one He says know the day or hour that the Son of man will come again. Jesus didnít know and He came from Heaven as a man to show us how that we are to live a godly life in this world.
We Have Made Some Mistakes.
We make mistakes because we try to figure God out from a natural perspective rather than a spiritual one. Living outside of Godís grace causes us to devalue our own worth. The way we figure is a thing of the past after today; the day you hear my Word harden not your hearts. God made us and knows all about us. He created us Spirit beings, designed the body we have, shaped and structured every part of us that we follow His lead. So now how can we make mistakes if we are so beautifully and wonderfully made? Satan changed manís attitude towards our heavenly Father by making us think we were equal with God. We developed a new pose; we decided we will sit in the place where only God was to reside. We profess untruths when we have been told the truth from the beginning. We began to act instead of listening and giving honor and obeisance to God whereas our mindset was supposed to be; stayed on Him. Have we figures out life yet?
Leaning To Our Own Understanding
Leaning to our own understanding has caused many heartaches and pain. When we lean to our own understanding we go against what God says. We donít want things the way that God says they are to be. We want more so what we can see and the way we see things ought to be. We want positions and possessions; belongings, effects, estates, and properties in the earth. Well guess what it all belongs to God. The earth is the Lordís and the fullness thereof; the world and all that dwell therein. We want assets that donít belong to us that we will leave for someone to fight over anyway because of greed. When our hearts stop beating and we no longer exist as the world knows us we try to live on life support. Well guess what if we live at all, it is because of God. He is the author and finisher of our faith. Have we figured out life yet?
Leaning to our own understanding of what we thought God was saying cost us. Obeying man outside of the will of God cost us. Thank God for a rooted Word that kept us from stepping again into sin. Our choices no matter how we get to them calls for an indept study of the Word of God for his understanding and not ours. We have to also be careful of the people that lead us for their motives may be underrated because of personal reasons. We are too rash in our decisions and act prematurely when we seek to please man rather than God. We take too much care for the wrong reasons. A position of authority or power makes us not take precaution in our acts. We have no foresight, regard or forethought when it comes to our leaders abilities; why canít we trust God like that. We commend our leaders and endorse all their plans but are they just good ideas? We honor them for personal reasons just like they glorify us for their own reasons too. No man or woman should have that kind of predominance over another. Only God should have supreme dominance and control over manís life. Should we submit to authority in this manner we create idols which God is displeased with. We cannot lean to our own understanding.
Just Doing What God Has Instructed
Just doing what God has instructed in his Word is all we have to do. But we want to pick out the parts of the Word we want to obey and which parts we will scrap. Godís Word is whole, not fragmented as many want us to think. Everybody has a book, everybody has a story and Jesus is the only one that came and died for the cause of Christ for the whole of mankind. How did Jesus name, get to be so highly glorified that we have to pray in the name of Jesus? God gave glory to Jesus as Jesus glorified Him. So the conclusion of the story is the testimony of Jesus Christ we must hold on to it. He was the Word that took on a fleshly body to live in to show us how the story will end. He gave us an allotment through the sharing of the Gospel lived and obeyed as a man in the earth and sent us the Christ, the Holy Ghost again that was with us in the beginning. Jesus postscripts the end of manís life story with a new addition; eternal life again. If we donít stand for God we will fall for anything.
God speaks to His Prophets
God will speak to us mouth to mouth, but do we take time to investigate and understand what God is relating to us? Do we really take time to listen to the full instructions? Are we ready to take on the challenge of what God has told us to do? Everything God tells us to do is for a test of how much we love Him. It is to challenge our faith; rather we trust God or not. God put before us an open door to choose good or bad. He doesnít overstep the boundaries we set up to keep Him out. He doesnít knock down doors or walls to penetrate His will be done in our lives. He said that we are to knock on His doors and they shall be opened to us, to seek Him and He will be found of us and then we can ask what we will and He will do it. We have not because we ask not or ask amiss; for we are not worthy of Him to do what we asked. When God speak to His Prophets He gives them dominion or control over a situation or circumstance that He wants taken care of in the earth. He gives them jurisdiction or power to be that forerunner he need to get a work done.
Our Life Is Preordained
We have not figured out life yet. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. God is there through our woes, sorrows, contentions, babblings, and strife. He causes us to not act hastily in areas of life we donít understand. He keeps us from filling our hearts with lust and pride that takes us off into left field. He fills us with His love, power, strength, salvation, and righteousness. All that we are spiritually is Him. Before He made man a body of flesh man was spirit. All of our main blessings are spiritual and not natural; a knowledge of salvation, remission of sins, holiness, guidance, and peace. In Jesus Christís own teaching the natural aspect must altogether disappears and the salvation He brings is something spiritual. He connects it with His Person and in certain well known passages with His death. We have not figured out life yet. Life is in the blood of Jesus Christ; His work is distinctively redemption from the rudiments of the earth for we have been put into to keep. Our life is to be a ransom as Christís was; for the sake of the Father. Our hearts is to be after Christ, thatís life!
God knew us and who we were just in a preparation stage of life in our motherís womb. We were excellent as He is, selected a prime reward because we were of premium value to Him and his purposes. He would then make us fit for his use in this life. He knew what we would do and be before we were. It up to us to protect and preserve the Word that operates in our lives.
