“In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” - Psalm 56:4 NIV
There is a very basic thought that a believer needs to digest and understand. It is that God is the Creator of all things … ALL things. This means there is nothing greater than Him … NOTHING.
God knows what He is doing and doesn’t need anyone’s help, especially ours, to accomplish His purposes. God has foreordained all that has taken place, all that IS taking place now and all that will take place in the future. To say it is not so would mean that God is not in ultimate control of His own Creation and not only doesn’t that make any sense, but it would be a lie.
Man wears himself out seeking ways to circumvent the plans of God in favor of his own. The scripture addresses this: Proverbs 14:12 & 16:25 (NIV) both say “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.” Many times the creation thinks itself more intelligent then the Creator Himself. This stems from the simple notion that man does not want to be ruled over by anyone.
Understand this, God’s path is the only way to heaven. Belief in anything else is a pathway to destruction. Trust in God; fear no one but Him (fear as in revere with awe); seek His wisdom and guidance; follow wherever He leads, for to do anything else is accepting less than the best. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
