Outfit Post, Sermon Thoughts And Get $10!

As usual, I'm behind in my posting! I haven't even had time to return comments, much less read anybody's  blog! : (

Had a thought provoking sermon at church. It was on 1 Samuel 12. The basic jist I took away was that if God says "No." You better listen. The Israelites were so keen on being like everyone else, they were blinded. God specifically told them, should they choose to have a King, he's going to do things you don't like, take your men and send them to battle, basically as human as it gets. Yet they still chose to have a king, knowing it would change their lives, but not for the better! 


Which then led me to thinking about how many times I've done that. With a human perspective, I think I know best. Like why can't I have that? 

Mere Christianty by C.S Lewis nailed how our perspective differs from God's. God is the author of our book, He knows what's coming next, how our story ends and the tears we'll shed. We in our human perspectives are the characters in the book, we see only what happened in chapters 1-5, and the current page, not what happens on page 300. Because we don't see the consequences of our choices, we allow our flesh to take over and fool us. (Notice I said allow) Truths we can cling to in times making choices are: God always knows what's next, God never forsakes us, God always loves. Does that give us license to do whatever we want, knowing God will forgive us? Nope. There's always a reaction to our actions, be it positive or negative. 
I'm thankful God is patient...He needs it to deal with me! ;)
