Misguided Week 1
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” When we need directions to follow, do you want someone who has been where you are trying to go or follow someone who heard about where you are trying to go?
It is established that two cannot walk together unless they agree (Amos 3:3). The issue comes when we seek the credentials of a person who does not have Christ within their heart and soul. Just because you want to go higher and further does not mean others are on the same page and may even be willing to sabotage your destiny. When you are attempting to better yourself, you realize the necessity of having a great leader who not only knows where you are going. A great leader also discloses the traps and snares that so easily beset us. What is best for you is God’s will, way, and His Word.
Churches have become businesses seeking to make money, not seeking first the kingdom of heaven and His righteousness. We should never depend on a grand edifice to bring in people when Jesus said He will draw all men unto Him if He is lifted up from the Earth (John 12:32). You need God to pour His Spirit into you to have life and life more abundantly. Letting Budweiser and Seagram pour their spirits into you will only bring trouble, problems, and devastation.
As long as our faith in Christ is authentic and continually binding with the Holy Spirit, it will bring us out of any situation. When our faith is in anything or anyone except Christ, failure and calamity are practically guaranteed. Acts 5:38-39 tells us, “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.” For the month of October, the points to follow will delve into how a misguided person can reset their thinking, actions, and outlook if they let go and let God.
