Get ready because here it comes. If you are a Christian. You cannot do what the world does. You cannot act the way the world does. You cannot believe what the world believes. And in fact. If anything does not align it self with what the bible says. It is a lie. Maybe you have taken notice of the following. Many of the things that the bible clearly labels as sin. Are now defined by the world as being sicknesses or diseases. And do you know why? Because they run their lives without the aid of divine absolutes and guidance. Everything and anything which they encounter must be labeled by the minds of man. And that by men and women who are completely ignorant of the Word of God.
I said this before but its well worth repeating. Someone I know told me their daughter was suffering from alcoholism. And when I told her it was a demon from hell. Well I thought she was going to come through the phone. Its funny how people are more than willing to go to the doctor and accept everything and anything that they have to tell them about what’s wrong with them. They will willingly take any meds and go to any so called specialists that they are directed to. But when you tell them what the bible says. We are the ones who are out of our minds. Here are the degrees that I have hanging on the wall of my spiritual house. I am born again by the Spirit of God. I have been set free from sin. I have been sanctified by the blood of Christ. By his stripes I have been healed. I am more than a conquerer through Christ who strengthens me. My name is written in the Lambs book of life. I have been filled with the Holy Spirit. And those are just the ones behind my desk.
Take that you lying devil. The fact of the matter is that what you or I think has very little to do with anything that pertains to Christ. The bible says that we are to put on the mind of Christ. Now I ask you. Why are we told to put on Christ’s mind when we have one of our own? It is because we do not think the way God thinks. The scripture says that Gods thoughts are not our thoughts. And his ways are not our ways. We were created in the likeness and image of God. But that doesn’t mean that we are God. He has infinite discernment. He sees the beginning and the ending of all things. His ways are beyond our comprehension. The smartest minds in our race are ignorant as compared to him. We pray for change and in the midst of that change we pray that God will deliver us from what’s going on. We are moody and unstable. We want what we want and we want it now. Aside from the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives. If you have the Holy Spirit. We are all together lost in this life. Aging gives us one thing if nothing else. It provides the aged with hindsight. In other words we can look back over time having lived through it. And see the things that God has done. Many of which have taken many years.
The Lord is not in a hurry. The scripture says that a day is as a thousand years to the Lord. And if you think of our lives in such terms. We were born at 7 a.m. and died before lunch time. Maybe sooner. We lack patience. We lack trust. We suffer from doubt and unbelief. Ask yourself this. Do I really believe that God loves me? Do I really believe that God has my best interest in mind? Now I feel terrible for children who are and have been abused. But under normal circumstances. Do think your daddy doesn’t want the best for you? Do you think he wants you to suffer without benefit? Know this my friends. If you are committed to your walk with Christ. There is no good thing that he will withhold from you. Emphasis on the word good. And also remember this. All things work for the good. To those who love God and are called according to his purpose. You cannot and will not fail. So hold on tight. The best is yet to come….To be continued
