Are You Listening?

I Can't Help You !

True success is exactly proportionate to how much you love the Truth.
True success is exactly proportionate to how well you know Him.
True success can only be estimated in the light of eternity.

I want you to understand how completely, totally, absolutely, God is in control, of everything. I know that is hard for most to believe, so I am going to try to explain it so you can understand.

You've heard the old worn out line. "If God exists, how can He allow so many terrible things to happen?" Why all the suffering?

I think of all the people I've tried to help over the years. Most of them desperate and destitute and unable to find a job anywhere else. Almost without exception they succumbed to their own devices. There was really nothing I could do for them other than provide a momentary solution to their problem. While they were busy chasing the money they missed the boat. "People ruin their lives with their own foolishness, (Lawlessness), then they are angry at God." Proverbs 19:03. "What ever you do in life, it can't be about money." "If making money is your first priority you have your head on backwards and you will end up with nothing." "Fear God and keep His Commandments." Ecclesiastes. This is mans first duty.

The question is; Is God in control of your life or are you? Just because God lets us self destruct does not mean He is not in control. He controls what He wants. Everything else is our own devising and we reap the results. However, when we put Him first, He makes up the difference, now and in the future. It might not seem like it, but He knows what is best for us. We have to trust Him. "The just shall live by faith."

The fact is God is waiting to bless people, but too often we don't know who He is. In fact, when He comes back what does He say to most people? "Depart from Me, I never knew you, ye who practice Lawlessness."

The problem is we are so SADD. We have Severe Attention Deficit Disorder. God has given us His Word, the perfect solution. We are the ones that can't pay attention. We have to have it our way. We have to be our own God. Without God's Word there is only my opinion verses your opinion. This of course results in endless chaos and controversy.

So, if you think I can solve your problems, fix your finances, cure your addictions, heal your body, mend your soul, you're looking the wrong way. The only thing I can do for you is to try to get you to pay attention to God's directions. Once you start to understand His Law you will start to understand Him. Then there is no end to what He can do for you.
