Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

I am guilty; I am guilty, help me, God. This is my response to my thoughts about writing this blog.

I am one of those persons who grew up in a godly household. I accepted Christ as my Savior in my childhood, and 56 years later, I can thank God I have not strayed. As the saying goes, “All I know is holiness.”  However, I realize there are many areas of failure in my life because of unbelief.

God inspired men to write the Bible so that humans would have a divine plan by which to live. It contains answers and instructions. Also, it includes many promises that belong to believers. Some of these are conditional, meaning we have to meet the condition (follow the instructions) as stated in the promise. But for some reasons, believers think we can pick and choose the promises and also commandments to which we will adhere. We expect God to cater to our actions forgetting that the scripture says, “He changes not.” I am required to eat the whole loaf. When I read books, I can decide what I will follow; however, the bible does not give me that option. My actions are displaying I don’t believe when I respond negatively to the Word or show opposition to what the Word reveals. My mind wants to believe God’s grace will allow me to do things my way. I choose not to remember there are consequences for disobedience.

The Message Bible quotes the words of Jesus as stated in the above scripture as, “You’re off base on two accounts: you don’t know your Bibles, and you don’t know how God works. These same words ring true today. I must continuously remind myself that I serve an Omniscient God. My mind cannot comprehend His ways or thoughts; therefore, I should not think my ways are justifiable or acceptable to Him.

In this particular perplexing age that we are living in, we need to be guided by a higher power, namely GOD. We need to cast down the vain imaginations that make us think we have a better way, bring in every ungodly rebellious thought and surrender them to God. After all, is said and done, I realize if I read, study, believe and obey the scriptures, my life would be significantly improved. How about you?

    What a thought provoking message. It seems believers do believe the Word of God however, we allow doubt to overtake us, especially self-doubt.

    Dear Lord, I’m tired of feeling paralyzed by insecurity. Show me what triggers
    my self-doubt. Help me focus on Your thoughts about me instead of my thoughts
    about myself. I want to learn how to rely on and live in the security of Your
    promises. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
