Stupid?

Why do you call it stupid? Because you don’t understand. You want a full explanation of everything from why are some people born into poverty to why doesn’t God just fix it all?  You obviously have no respect for God, for who He is and what is truly important. You are not a believer. You do not trust Him.

Do you think He needs you? He could crush you with a thought if He chose to. Satan doesn’t have that kin of power and yet you choose to believe his lies. God created you and He loves you. He loves you so much that He allows you to choose between life and death. (Deuteronomy 30:19  “I call heaven and earth as witnesses to day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord you God, that you may obey His voice and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give them.”

He said that if we love Him, we will obey Him. He said “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15) But you want proof. That screams that not only do you not love Him, you don’t believe in Him. All of creation itself is more than enough proof that God exists yet you have taken all of it for granted.

God is the only one who truly treats us as individuals. We all have individual gifts and talents. We all have individual stations in society. We all have our own friends, and enemies. For every part of our lives to be unique speaks volumes of our much God really loves us.We are not cookie cutter images of each other, no matter how much we may think we want to be. Peter said in Acts 10:34 “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. but in  every nation whoever fears (respects) Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.”  and in Galatians Paul said, “But from those who seemed to be something-whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no man-for those who seemed to be something added nothing to me.” God will not give to you what he gave to your neighbor because He knows what is best for you and you do not. He knows that you may not be able to handle the very thing you think you want. Or, it could be that what you think you want is not a big enough reward for what you are doing with your life. If you do it all for God, then it won’t matter anyway what you neighbor gets because you are not living in the flesh, in the Spirit. You are content no matter what because God is your contentment. He makes good come from tragedy and loves it because it’s completely contrary to Satan’s purpose. Only He deserves the glory.

I could go on and on but I feel compelled to stop here. You need to read the Word. 1 & 2 Peter, Philippians, Galatians, 1 & 2 Timothy, and 1 John is a start. Then, go back and take in all of the gospels and what Jesus had to say. Let it penetrate your heart. Then you will understand a little better in faith.
