Psalm 25:8, Psalm 34:8, continuing on in getting to know who Gos is, we have to understand that God is good. It always makes me a little frustrated when I hear the classic argument, “If God does exist, why is there so many bad things in the world?”. I almost what to laugh in disgust. We are sinful people in a fallen world. Some may want to argue why we should have to pay for Adam & Eve’s mistake. Well if they wouldn’t have made it we would have. It is us that makes the world so terrible. We all have choices, and must decided how we are to act. Our nature is sinful, which means we need the goodness of God to help us to make good choices. In all the greatness and goodness that there is in God, He still gives us free will.

“When we don’t live as a people in need of grace, we expect others to be perfect, and we bitterly resent it whenever even the slightest imperfection puts us out.” – Devotions for Sacred Parenting by Gary L. Thomas It seems so easy to take our grace for granted. When we fall into this that is where our actions don’t reflect someone living under God’s grace. God has called us to love Him, and love others as ourselves. As Christ followers love always needs to be first with grace to follow.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. – Matthew 6:33 NLT Our world tries to offer us a lot of things that distract us from what we should be pursuing. It goes without saying that when we are pursuing God our “needs” change. Many of what we think we need are merely wants, and God sometimes blesses us with those things as well.
(Exodus 4:10-18) Interesting question, it would seem that in this passage in Exodus, that Moses wore out God’s patience. It clearly describes that God became angery with Moses when he refused to follow what God was calling him to. This doesn’t mean that God is completely impatient, however it does go to show that He will work with us for a time and perhaps arrange something entirely different to get us moving. We are stuborn people, if God simply waited on us none of His plans would come to pass I suspect. Are we choosing to live in a manner that continues to try God’s patience, or are we desiring to please Him with how we live our lives? I would hope and pray that…
Psalm 139:1-6, Omniscience, all-knowing, this one attribute of God the I know that I acknowledge but haven’t given it much thought in how it affects my day-to-day actions. The Psalms say that He knows our words before they are even spoken. It would be nice to think that just like a parent keeping and eye on a child, and the child being good until the parent looks away, that we would easily choose the do and think about good things only as God is always watching us. It kind of blows me away to see how much control sin can have over us and this world. What is even more amazing is that God knows all the junk we’ve done, are doing, and will do,…
