It is very important to examine the deep roots of our intentions, our goals, and our life ambitions to insure the right spiritual seed that is guiding our path. This examination is not only important before we make our decisions but it is equally if not more important to continue throughout our commitments as we begin to build our relationships, our careers, and our missions in life.
When people don’t know God and understand how He is in full control they often make their decisions based on their own knowledge or desires which can be driven through our emotions and selfish ambitions. Spiritually Satan wants us to make these type of decisions because he knows that when we don’t truly seek God in our decisions how easily they can be broken.
Unfortunately, in today’s society many people make decisions that are far from God in hollow religion due to the influence of monetary gain and by trusting in man instead of learning to trust our Father in Heaven. It is in our human nature to want others to rely on us but when we do this then we are misleading the people because every single individual needs to learn how to rely on God instead of trusting in man.
Through my journey in life I have learned how Satan can even mislead us even when we think that we are on the right coarse. The key to this is staying humble in the love of Christ without allowing pride to separate us from the people. There was once a point that I would not listen to others because I thought that I had all the answers but there came a point that I had to learn a valuable lesson in allowing God to bring things together rather than trying to do it on my own.
It is very wise to listen and then go to God in prayer before we make our decisions in life to prevent us from acting in our emotions which can cause a division within the body. The Lord speaks in many different ways to warn us, to guide us, and to help unite us but when we become so stuck in our own way then it is only a matter of time that we forget God’s way. It is important to recall that His ways are much higher than our ways and His thoughts are much higher than our thoughts.
If we seriously want to maintain what God has given us in our homes, in our careers, in our churches, and even in our nation then we must learn to work together under God with mutual respect for each individual without divisions in the body. Spiritually Satan has done a good job of causing many divisions in this world because many people want to prove their own self worth rather than just being who they are under God and allowing Him to bring things together rather than trying to do it on our own.
Throughout history we learn of many great leaders who stood up in a time of need, not for the attention, not for monetary gain, nor for their own self glory. They did not have prepared speeches but they just spoke from their heart with God guiding their actions to help encourage and unite the people. It is vital in life that we learn to stand on the truth of God to maintain what we have been given because when we take it for granted then it is only a matter of time before it will be taken away.
Every single individual has a purpose in life and we all add value to each other when we learn how to work together rather than apart. It is my sincere prayer that we put aside our differences and learn to unite for our children’s future in God’s glory rather than our own. May God be with us and give every single individual that reads this the wisdom to work together in the love of Christ to help rebuild whatever in their life that may be broken…amen
For a decision that is right in the eyes of God is one that properly serves the people first and then if it is in God’s will then He will bless the people.
