Is God Listening?
I thought about this last night and I just had to ask. Is God Listening? I mean it is an honest question especially when the world is the way it is. People losing jobs, losing finances, people even losing there lives. Did you know that 153,000 people die a day. That is roughly 6,300 per hour or even 105 per minute more or less. Still that is a lot of people dying every day. So the question still remains Is God Listening? God is who all powerful and mighty. The one that in an instant can snap His finger and the world can be made better. As I thought about this question and about all the tragedy and things happening in the world. In what I know about God in the short period I've been learning. I came to this answer that is also a question. The answer was Are We Listening? Are We Listening? The way to better explain this is to think of our lives like a movie. God is the director, the producer, and the writer. We as actors need to do our part in the movie. God as the writer gives us a script...we'll call the script The Bible. In the script it explains to us what are our parts in the movie. It tells us our lines, it tell us how to be, and it actually tells us everything we need to know. So we have our script. Now God the producer creates the scenery for us and also creates the scenarios. But He says whenever you come to a part in the movie where the scene changes right away or things are getting a bit crazy...stick to the script. Now God the director says all you have to do is listen to me, whatever I instruct you to do in the movie do it and you'll be rewarded. God the director gives us instructions to follow and that's it. Simple right! There you have it. You have your script, your scene, and you have the director helping all the way. So Are We Listening? I mean you have everything you need to make your movie great but yet we as actors decide we want to do things our way.
For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 It's one of the most poplar verses in your script but so hard to read. There are two kind of people in the world from my point of view. People that live there lives right and people that live there lives right now. People that live there lives right are the people reading off there script. They are the ones trying to follow the director's instructions. They want there movie to mean something, have a purpose. The people that live for right now. They don't read off there script, they don't follow God's ways, and there only care is I Don't Care!! They don't care about security for the future. They don't see past the trials and tribulations. They only live for right now. Out of the statistics I gave you for the amount of people dying every day. The people that live by the script. There hard work, there sacrifice will be rewarded. For the people that don't care they have no reward and for lack of a better word there movies tank. But here is the great news until you die your movie is not yet finished. So I encourage everyone...read your script, live your movie, but above all Listen to God. For those that know of people that don't care...don't give up. Keep trying...and Is God Listening? God is doing more than listening, He's helping you create your movie. The real question is ARE YOU LISTENING?
