Are you smarter than God?
July 29, 2009
But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise….
--1 Corinthians 1:27
Sometimes we think we’re smarter than God. But imagine what would happen if people really trusted God with every detail of their lives. Imagine the heartache that could be saved!
For instance, what does the Scripture says about sex and marriage? God says, “If you will just trust me and keep your heart and life pure, I will bring someone into your life in my own way and timing.”
But some singles are impatient and don’t wait on God or trust him in the area of sexual purity. And their choices lead to a world of hurt.
Another area that some people fail to trust God in is the area of finances. God asks you to trust him by giving 10% of your income as a tithe. And yet, this scares some people. They’re afraid they can’t afford it. But the truth is, you will be better off with a blessed 90% of your income than with 100% of your income that you’ve kept to yourself!
You see, God’s way may look illogical to the world, but God isn’t looking for your logic. He’s looking for your trust. And when you trust God, he can bless you.
GOD ISN’T LOOKING FOR YOUR LOGIC. HE’S LOOKING FOR YOUR TRUST.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
