Overspiritualizing Things

In the midst of his normal routine of work, Jeffrey suddenly felt fever rising in his system. This is unusual as he rarely gets sick.  Jeffrey didn’t tell anyone at that time as he continued on his work; he didn’t rest and he didn’t bother taking any medications.  When the fever got worse, Jeffrey decided to pull out his spiritual rank as a child of the most high God through Jesus Christ and fervently prayed for healing. The fever only got worse and by the time he was rushed to the hospital, his appendix have already burst.

The Christian Warfare

We are part of a war between good and evil.  Ever since the beginning, man has been expressing stories about this conflict.  Perhaps they are not far from the truth?

What is a loving God supposed to do?

In The Garden, God was looking at both Adam and Eve, the federal heads of His highest creation, reaching out to the Tree of Good and Evil to consume its forbidden fruit.  God has explicitly commanded them not to do this, yet the two creatures had the audacity to go against the will of The Almighty God.  It didn’t matter what their motives were: was it to become Gods themselves? Were they hurt thinking that God was holding out on them?  It doesn’t matter, “do not eat of the tree” means do not eat of the tree.  There will be much trouble should they partake of this, for every transgression has to be dealt with accordingly, severely.  For every sin should be paid for by blood.  The Holy God and His Holy Law demands no less.

Meditating on God’s Power to Conquer Anxiety

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great;
thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Psalms 104:1

Anxious people feel exposed to danger and punishment.  Love alone is not enough to overcome this. For someone willing to fight for you and protect you doesn’t necessarily mean that they can.  We need a protector who is not just willing but someone who is also capable of doing so.

Faith is Knowing Him

Wisdom is seeing things through God’s eyes.

In times of hardships and trials, people would project their humanity to God and think that God is enjoying man’s sufferings. That shows zero wisdom at all. That shows zero knowledge about God and without knowledge, how can there be faith?
