You know sometimes God allows us to experience things; make decisions for several reasons. One, well, he gave us free will. So I mean, you can pretty much make your own decisions. Yeah, you can do what you want and sometimes, hey the chips may fall in your favor and you come out untouched. You may go through life doing it your way and come out on top. You can stand before millions and tell them, "I did it MY way." But the way life is set up, that may not always happen. So what happens then? What happens when you set out to do something; your best Kevin Hart impersonation and you make an executive decision... And it flops, who's fault is it then? Gods? Go ahead and say yes because you know you want to. Think about it, when things go sideways, I'm almost 99.9% positive that majority of the time, we put the blame on God. God why did you let this happen? God why didn't you say anything? You KNEW this was going to happen, so why not step in?! Why do we put the blame on God for our already made decisions? Yes, already made. Before you acted, carried out the decision, you had already made up in your mind to go whichever way you wanted to go. So it's safe to say we avoid responsibility by blaming God. We avoid looking in the mirror and saying that hey, I made a mistake, I messed up and now I live with the consequences.
So my question is this; when is enough, enough? When will we come to a place that we realize that we are in dire need of a savior and that we can't make it through this life without him. Now yes, clearly you can live life without him, you were living before you came into the knowledge of him. But why stand in the doorway and not walk in? Why do we stand at the doorstep of life, and life more abundantly, and make it no further? Why do we choose the red pill, over the blue pill? Matthew 6:33 probes us to seek first the kingdom of God, live righteously and you'll have everything you need. See if we knew everything, there would be no need for a God like ours. Think about it, why would he exist and give us access to him though his son Jesus Christ if we didn't need him? If you didn't need your parents, you would've came into this world being able to provide and take care of yourself, but you can't. You have to be guided through roughly the first 18 years of life to understand some things. Well God is our heavenly father, and he's here to help us through this thing we call life. You know 2000 years ago, he lived this thing called life. Sure, that was OVER 2000 year ago, and times have changed, but the word lets us know that there's nothing new under the sun. The same struggles then, are the same, possibly greater more prevalent in today's world.
What is the point of all this? Don’t do it in your own strength family. Don’t try to live life without the giver of life. Christ himself in the form of a man still needed God. Think about that; the son of God needed God. So what makes us think we could POSSIBLY do life without him? Without a community of believers? I started writing this months ago, and NOW finally coming back to finish it because when I started writing, I was trying to live life without God. I knew God, been raised in church, preachers kid, the works. But it wasn’t until I moved to Orlando almost a year ago that I realized how much I needed him and how life without him wasn’t life at all.
Now… Life is sweet. It’s not perfect, but it’s better with him.
