Is God frustrating to you? Will He simply not agree to the way you want to live your life? There’s a reason for that…
2 A person may think their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart. Pr 21:2
What’s wrong with the way we think? Well, pretty much everything! We have been deceived by the enemy and warped by sin. We are blind, deaf and dumb– we were even dead in our sins when Jesus came to us. Jesus adds wretched, pitiful, poor and naked to the list (Rev. 3:17)– and that’s to Christians! Now we know why Jesus refers to us as little children: we are reborn spiritually as babes in Christ. We must be taught how to live godly lives. In fact, we must “unlearn what we have learned” from living in the world (thanks, Yoda).
When we live according to Him and His word, we get a correct perspective on life and how to live it. What happens when Christians ignore God and His direction?
12 The eyes of the LORD keep watch over knowledge, but he frustrates the words of the unfaithful. Pr 22:12
We become frustrated with God, with ourselves, with others, and with life in general. The answer to all our problems is a closer walk with God! Why wait until the storms of life come? He may lead us around them; He will, at least, walk through them with us– And carry us if need be!
Let’s follow Him closely today beginning with a good dose of the Word. Listen as He speaks to our hearts. Let’s not do life the hard way…(see following link)
