Its not my fault..... God did it - Devotional 37
I find this imnage perfect to repersent this next devotional. In life I find that alot of people blame God for a lot things, when he no means to harm us. Its really quite unbelieveable what some people will think of God. In life God gets blamed for death, God gets blamed for sending people to Hell, WARS, BAD PEOPKE, DISEASE its really quite something. When I stop and look at it all its really quite remarkable.
The reason I find it to be so remarkable. is simply because as smart as we are as human beings, we still have short comming, most of whicb is understanding things I'm not talking about driving a car or figuring out an algebra equation. I'm talking about the biggest mystery to many people that in which is God,. What we all deal with in life in much played out this way.
(this is just a sanerio in my opinion)
A guy named Dave gets a job as an artist. He works as a cartoonist for Warner Bros. He's come up with a great cartoon character and lets say for the sake of an arguement call him Mickey Mouse. 2 weeks later Dave hands his boss the cartoon sketching and the cartoon gets rejected. Lets say Dave takes this pretty hard and he begins to drink. Cursing and lashing out on God for destoying his lifelong dream.
Same kind of thing happens when people die, they blame God for their loss, they lash out and become very angry.
One of the greatest things, men and woman alike can't even begin to understand is the single moment in Garden of Eden. God gets blamed for creating rules. Sure Adam was tricked, but ultimately the choice was his to eat the apple.
Heres's my major point. People always say two things in life and its gotten to the point where I must address them for a bit of clearity. 1. People say we are in control of our destiny. 2. How can loving and forgiving God sent someone to Hell?
1. In people are right they are in control of their own destiny, because of free will.. 2. Because of that free will you make a choice to live one way or the other. So don't blame for your troubles. Rather welcome jesus into your heart.
Genesis 3 (New International Version)
The Fall of Man
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"
2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' "
4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. 5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, "Where are you?"
10 He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid."
11 And he said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"
12 The man said, "The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."
13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?"
The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this,
"Cursed are you above all the livestock
and all the wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring [a] and hers;
he will crush [b] your head,
and you will strike his heel."
16 To the woman he said,
"I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing;
with pain you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you."
17 To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,'
"Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat of it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return."
20 Adam [c] named his wife Eve, [d] because she would become the mother of all the living.
21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." 23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side [e] of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
Remember; One God, One, Love, One Way
