NEVER ACCUSE GOD!
Text: Psalm 46:1
“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”
See…If you don’t know God as Father, you will accuse him of anything…
And if you accuse your Helper, who will you go to in time of need/ trouble?
A wise man said, “If it is not good, it is not God!” That is the mindset you must have, as a Christian, concerning any and every evil occurrence or manifestation…especially in your life.
The same month I got born again, I was in a Full Gospel Businessmen’s Breakfast meeting when the speaker quoted Job 34:10…
“Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding:
far be it from God, that he should do wickedness…”
From that day, this scripture was branded in my heart, and gave me a powerful mindset concerning my Father, God!
And since then I have never attributed any evil or negative thing I see or hear to him. Never! It’s really a sanctifying mindset, I tell you!
God will never do wickedness…not even to punish any man for his sin or mistake!
God will never punish you with evil -sickness, disease, calamity, loss of a loved one, fire burning down your house or business place, etc, because you sinned…Noooo! Far be it from God to do wickedness!
Besides, God has judged and put all punishment for sin on Jesus…What God has now to give for any sin you commit, is forgiveness…(1 John 1:9; Romans 8:1-2).
And it’s your responsibility to go to him for it…otherwise the devil will use your ignorance and sin-consciousness to steal, kill and destroy in your life…And you’ll be there thinking it’s God that is punishing you!
As for your God and my God, your Father and my Father… He is the Father of light, from whom only good and perfect gifts come -there is no darkness in him, there is no unrighteousness in him – James 1:17.
That is why 1 Timothy 2:4 says that the will of God is not only for men to be saved, but also to come to a place of full and accurate personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and his finished work – Philemon 1:6.
My beloved, I challenge you to get to know this God more and better this new year…You’ll see, the devil will stop taking advantage of you…and God will be more active in your life – with proofs to show. Yes!
