Foolish Moments Of Contending With GOD
Dear Lord, forgive me please for daring to contend with you. You are God, I am not. You are the Boss, I am your servant. You call the shots, I humbly desire to obey. Please create in me a pure heart, one that is pleasing to you. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Solomon wisely reminds us that the irreverent contending with God is a foolish and dangerous endeavor, one that brings about no blessings or victories.
Yet why is it that we as humans continue to question and contend with GOD? He is infinite in His being and perfection, while we are finite and imperfect. Yet if the truth be told we have all had our foolish moments when we dare to contend with GOD.
We contend that GOD has ignored our prayers for healing and the righting of perceived wrongs in our lives. Perhaps we feel that GOD doesn't care because he has not answered our appeals to HIS goodness.
We tell ourselves that GOD hasn't come through for us before so why should he now? We wonder why allow things to happen if he cares so much us. However, if you examine your circumstances in faith, you will see that GOD is working for your good despite how things appear.
God doesn't owe you anything but he's gracefully given a sinful world EVERYTHING in Jesus. In those moments that you are struggling tell GOD that you know He is always right and asking Him to show you his will. Assure Him that you will do whatever He wants you to do, and will endure any suffering with His grace and power. Then, GOD can bless your life abundantly.
