Good morning. Today I’m going to chat with you all.
Humans. We were made in the image of God. That is a marvelous and beautiful thing.
God gave us free will. Of course his desire was that we would choose to worship Him, adore Him, desire Him, commune with Him, have a relationship with Him…
Throw Satan into the mix. Satan is the master of confusion, lies, loneliness, anger…his desire is to steal our joy, ruin relationships, inflict pain and destroy our relationship with God.
So, with our free will we humans often make the wrong choices. Why we do so, well, I certainly can’t answer that. We are gluttons for punishment (as my mom would say).
Here’s the thing. If we know that humans make mistakes, make bad choices and are…well…HUMAN, why do we put so much faith in them?
How many times has a “godly leader” fallen into sin and his “followers” are completely devastated and perhaps even turn their backs on God because of it? WHY? They’ve turned their backs on a relationship with God, the Creator of the Universe, because a human failed! Really?
We MUST keep our focus on Christ. No one is perfect except for God. No one person has your answers. NoBODY can make your life right. If you count on people, you are going to find yourself in a “Stinky Yucky Mess”.
Psalm 118:8 KJV It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
Hebrews 13:6 KJV So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Hebrews 3:1 NIV Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
