If God is not in large part a mystery to a person all I can say is that person has a very low opinion of God! The more we are sure of about God the less we are accepting in Faith, the more we turn people away and the more judgmental we become!
“Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied. Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”’ – Genesis 22:1-3
God – The God who Abraham trusted and believed in just told him to go and kill his son. Does anyone struggle with this? Do you think Abraham struggled with this?
The amount of people who get turned off to Christianity because of Christians is staggering! Not because the Christians are rude per se or hateful but for the simple reason that the Christians feel they are the only ones right and they have all the answers!
Do I know why things happen a certain way to you or why things work the way they do or why this or that?
NO! And I pray to God I never know for a very simple reason – Knowing builds ego and ego kills Love!
There are only 11 words I know for sure and everything else from my journey of Grace through Faith is taken By Faith alone! Here are the 11 words, “God Is Love, God Radically Loves you, God Radically Loves me!”
The times when I struggle and the times when the devil gets me disconnected from these 11 words are the times when all Hell breaks loose in my heart and soul and I grow because of it! Growth is rarely comfortable!
Being “by Grace through Faith” was never meant to be comfortable all the time, nor was it meant to bring answers – it was meant to build Trust in God Almighty that He Alone Loves you with a Love beyond human comprehension and He has you right now where ever you are exactly where He wants you!
