THE BLAME GAME!
It baffles me how we pass the blame, manufacture ridiculous excuses and tell childish lies, actually trying to make a fool of God, who created us, knows the origin of our every thought, imagination, words and actions - but end up making a fool of ourselves. THE MOMENT WE REPENT, CONFESS AND FORSAKE OUR SIN WASN'T WHEN GOD FOUND OUT ABOUT THAT SIN. BUT THAT WAS WHEN WE GOT RID OF THE SIN AND IT'S CONSEQUENCES BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. Hebrews 10:19; 1 John 1:7.
COULD WE BE SMARTER THAN GOD?
And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life…..
Well, like most of us, Adam and Eve found someone to lay the blame on, but the poor serpent had no one to blame! But God understood their game, He created everything, sees everything, knows everything. Trying to fool God, makes us great fools!
1 John 1:8-10.
If we say we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth.
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.
THE HARD LESSON I LEARNED!
In 1994, I was pioneering a Church and God was blessing us with His presence, favor and miracles. We were eager and working hard to increase attendance and of course membership. But one Sunday morning having spent the entire weekend preparing and prayed through the night for the service, I set out to Church knowing the service that morning would be explosive and glorious as it has always been, if not more! But just before I stepped on our temporary Church premises, a tired and hungry young man approached me and asked for $5 for breakfast for himself and his sister. I usually go to Church with lots of money to give generously. But my flesh wanted to be smart. So, I asked the young man to bring his sister to Church and then I would give them the money. I was more interested in filling my Church with people than feeding the hungry because I love and obey God's Word. Needless to say, the young man never showed up and the Lord woke me up at 2 am and confronted me about that foolish mistake. As usual, I made up tons of excuses, put the blame on everything else but me. It was a very embarrassing situation and the Lord disciplined me for it.
For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes those he accepts as his children."
As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as his own children. Whoever heard of a child who was never disciplined? If God doesn't discipline you as he does all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really his children after all.
I repented quickly and learned that hard lesson. I hope we repent and forsake our sins fast and always. As his children, God wants us to to learn and grow in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
