Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord, And their works are in the dark; They say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?” Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; For shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”? (Isaiah 29:15, 16 NKJV)
There is no denying that there is a creator! A greater power from above! Just look all around you! Can’t you see the amazing things that God has made! Look in the mirror! The power to create a human being like you and me is just simply amazing! And do you know what’s really amazing about that? God created us in His own image; in the image of God He created you and me! (Genesis 1:27) God is the artist and we are His handy work! And He knows us more than we know ourselves! “The very hairs of our heads are all numbered.” (Matthew 10:30) We can’t hide anything from our creator; He sees all things and knows all things even before they happen! And when we deny God, He already knows that we will deny Him! If we choose to live life without God, He will let us! And when we do, we will certainly have no right to blame God when bad things happen, or things don’t go our way! It won’t be His fault! God gave us free will to make our own decisions, and if you choose to have nothing to do with God He will have nothing to do with you! He will leave you alone if that’s what you want! But that does not mean He doesn’t love you! God wants all His children to come to the saving Knowledge of His Son Jesus Christ! As a matter of fact “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 NKJV) Jesus Christ died a bloody death on a wooden cross for our sins, for the world’s sins! Past, present and future! Jesus Christ died for you and me! Take that leap of faith and invite Jesus in to your life, choose to follow in all His ways and you will bring endless joy to your life no matter your situation! Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and start a one on one relationship with The Son of God! For He is the way, the truth, and the life and the only way to God is through Him! (John 14:6) Do it today! You won’t regret it! Be all that God meant you to be!
There are many who hide their counsel from you; there are many who blame you, but refuse to know you! There are many who need you, but just don’t realize it! There are many that seek a joyful life, but don’t experience it; they end up with an empty feeling in the pit of their stomach and questions of doubt! They ask, “Is there more to this life?” Why was I created? Why am I here? Father, help them to understand and give them the nudge that they need. Pull them from the darkness, give them the light, and fill them with your Holy Spirit! Guide them, direct them, lift them up, and let them feel your presence! Thank you Father for all that you do! Thank you for breathing life into your children! In Jesus name I pray, amen!
