Posts Tagged ‘Proverbs 21’

Most people’s concept of God is foreign to what Scripture actually teaches, which explains why one of the most hated teachings of the Bible is the doctrine of God.

Most people believe that God is the cause of good things and not the cause of bad things such as earthquakes, war, sin, and evil. They believe that God is love, not justice, and a loving God honors their rights and freedoms to choose and permits them to do whatever they want to do.

The role for the people’s God is to get them out of trying situations, no questions asked, and to help them improve their lives and livelihood. The popular slogan, “Let go and let God” is as empty as it is meaningless.

The God of Scripture doesn’t need the people’s permission, approval, or agreement to perform His work or carry out His purpose.

The problem is the people’s God is not the God depicted throughout Scripture. Scripture repeatedly and emphatically teaches that God is a holy, just, Almighty Creator and that nothing exists apart from His will and power.

“And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee [Pharaoh] up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.” Exodus 9:16 KJV

“But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth. For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me” Job 23:13,14 KJV

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. Proverbs 21:1 KJV

Studying the Bible is less dangerous than ignoring it. God’s written word is meant for all people. It was not written to be read and studied by priests, preachers, and scholars only.

Peace.
