“There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.” (Proverbs 14:12 NLT)
“Laughter can conceal a heavy heart, but when the laughter ends, the grief remains.” (Proverbs 14:13 NLT)
Good Morning Family! We are continuing the series the God Element, Sometimes we (my self included) forget that God is omniscient (knows it all!) We sometimes get all wrapped up in our own thinking process, we call on this brother or sister, we read this book and go to this conference to try to solve an issue that is way out of our hands. And only after we tried everything and we are exhausted, do we look up and say “ok God you take this!” As we discussed in the last devotion God is the only Resource that won’t run out and that will always have the solution to our problems. I’m not shooting down any close brother or sister you call on as a prayer partner, nor am I saying that self help books and conferences are bad. What I am saying is before we go into our own thought process go to God first with our issues, before we run all over trying this and that to solve the problem. Our thinking is not His thinking.
God also knows when we are trying to hide our pain. We try to cover it up with a smile and by joking around. But when we get home there is no laughter or smiles. Because we have taken off the façade. We cannot fool God, our laughter and smile do not hide the pain in our hearts, God sees it and knows every bit of it! He reaches out his hand to heal, but we pull away, trying to heal on our own! Why? Why hide from him, let Him comfort you! Let God speak to your broken heart, you can’t fix it! And it will only get worse by holding it back from God! He is omniscient (He knows it all!) So run to Him with your broken heart, run to Him with your sins that echo condemnation in your head. God does not condemn you, He wants to restore you! So stop trying to do it on your own And let him do it! He is omniscient (He knows It all)
Much Love & God Bless
