I don’t have all the ANSWERS! And I don’t CARE!
“You are worthy, O Lord our God,
To receive glory and honor and power.
For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you please.” (Revelation 4:11).
I never really thought or saw this before but, it is important to realize that from the beginning of the Bible (Genesis) to the end of the Bible (Revelations) God is telling us that He created the world. It is also worthy of pointing out that this is one of the hardest topics to witness and prove to people. With the world today teaching our kids evolution and everything else besides intelligent design it is harder and harder to get people to believe in a God they cannot see. Not only that it is hard for them to get them to believe that God spoke something into nothing and from nothing came everything that we currently see. The facts are that while we may not know what to say when someone asks us about these tough questions, the truth is always the same. God did indeed create something from nothing and we are not God’s sales person who needs to convince people of the facts we know are true. God is His own salesman and we are just called to do what we can to be His hands and feet. A hammer does not look at a house and say, “Look at what I just built!” The hammer without the Carpenter is nothing… We are the hammer and as
Genesis 1:1, 2 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
God created it whether we believe it or not that does not change the fact that He is who He is… God is not made smaller by our small view of Him. He is the God who created something out of nothing and gave us the honor to be made in His image. I am challenged every day to see the world God created and see Him in all of it and so should you…
God is bigger than our explanations of Him and I find it refreshing when people do not act like they have all the answers, because we don’t… If I had all the answers to the questions of God then the God you and I serve would not be a Big enough God to serve. I am glad I don’t have all the answers because in that He keeps me coming back to know Him better.
From the beginning to the end of the Bible it tells us the same story God is the creature that’s the “start and finish of it”
Are you locked up and don’t even know it… Are you just a glorified slave?
Romans 1:25, “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.”
We live in a world that is full of technology that is supposed to make life easier, but instead we all know that it just makes our lives more complicated. The fact that we can sit with our heads buried in our phones and not even recognize that there is someone next to you struggling is proof of that. This web of technology does entangle us in a never ending web of busyness and hurry, which makes us forget about the fact that there are real people hurting around us. Having our cell phones with us everywhere we go including the bathroom makes us forget the importance of human contact and even takes away time from God. When we wake up and the first thing that we do is look to see how many likes we have on a post or maybe you check to see your Twitter numbers… When we do these things there is something completely wrong with our thought process! The first thing that we should do in the morning is not to check social media but it should be to connect with God! Have a real heart to heart with our creature. We are too busy with the created things that we phase out the one who made them all possible. Imagine if you spent as much time with God as you do on Facebook, I have to be totally honest with all of you if I did that my relationship with God would be much, much stronger than it is now. It is sad to think that we have all this technology to get things at a moment’s notice yet we forget that God just wants a little of that precious time that we are trying to save. Today I will look at my life and see how I can truly give myself a way to God…
So what will keep you from God…?
Romans 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
I am convinced that in this modern world that we live in we could add to this list; neither cell phone or tablet, computer nor job…
Whom are you a slave to? We can be a slave to technology or we can be a slave to God… The choose is yours!
