BE WISE IN INFORMATION GATHERING!
Then Job answered and said: “No doubt you are the people, and wisdom will die with you. —Job 12:1
In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind. —Job 12:10
What a joy to know that the life of every living thing is in the hand of our Lord God Almighty. It is a delight to know that the breath of every single person is in His hand. Each person that you see today will be breathing because He is allowing it, causing it to happen. How many people will thank God that He is causing them to breathe today? Let us do so!
Unfortunately we run into people that believe they are self-made, evolutionary, made by chance individuals. They don’t believe in God, but they believe in themselves. They don’t believe in God, but they will believe the whimsical ideas and spoutings of man. These people believe they have all the answers and they want to make sure you understand as they do. Unfortunately they do not have God’s Word as their foundation, but their own ideas or those they have heard from man. They believe they are wise and everybody else is wrong, but they are fools according to God’s Word—
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” (Matt 7:24-27).
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good” (Psalm 14:1). Yes, there are those who deny God even exists when all the evidence around us speaks clearly and without words!
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world” (Psalm 19:1-4).
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse” (Romans 1:18-20).
May we rely on God as our first priority and listen to those who love Him as our second priority and measure person’s communication by what God has to say. God has all wisdom and He alone. Trust what He has to say above all. Be discerning to what man is saying! Do not just take it at face value what man says. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zaaiFp4RSM
Dear Father I will trust what You say over my own thoughts and the thoughts of others. Please give me discernment by Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.
