God vs. Me (#gettingrealwithGod #cmdevo)
Read Job 21:22
No one can teach God new things nor can anyone direct His paths. A lot of times, we believe things like, “God just wouldn’t understand,” or, “I’m the exception.”
However, if the Lord has brought all things to existence and judges all things, whether high or low, what makes us think that He wouldn’t know the ins and outs of our pain? What makes us think He doesn’t suffer with us?
Truth is, a good number of God’s people experience these thoughts. I remember meeting a born again Christian who could not believe that God even took a small glance at Him. Another woman had a difficult time understanding God cared for her, considering He was up there and she was down here.
Sisters, do not fall into this trap. The devil will attack our minds, our hearts, our spirits, and our souls with stupid lies that will include, “You aren’t fit for God’s plan.”
But before this seeps into our minds, hold fast and think of this: “Who am I that He called me by name and His innocent blood freely poured to save me?”
I am a child of the one true King!
Prayer Father, I ask You to teach Your daughters, through Your sovereign Word, the promise of who and what You are. You are for them, and despite their sin and suffering, You have called them. We cannot teach You things, but teach us to understand that that includes setting our paths. Thank You, Jesus, for deciding to be our Direction, our Love, and our Friend. It is in Your Name, Amen.
