And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward:
But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
How often do we see ourselves on what seems like a roller coaster ride in our walk with God in this life?
One moment, we are singing the praises of our God and next we are in a state of depression over our circumstances.
Our prayers seem to consist of always crying out to Our Father to release us from one situation or another. We are always petioning Him for money to extricate us from our financial plight, extrication from our family problems, our employment, social and political issues; the list is endless.
God did not create us as robots, controlled from a central operational office, located in some place called Heaven.
Our Father created us as individuals who would have a crossing point with His Spirit via our minds. He created us to live for a season of time in our ‘life on earth’.
His purpose in doing this was to give us a chance to get to know Him, hear His voice and follow His coaching. In doing this, we would be setting ourselves up for a trouble free life on this earth and preparing ourselves for a future life in eternity.
Jesus said, “I only speak what the Father tells me to speak”.
“I only do what I see the Father doing”.
This might be interpreted as the Father ‘commanding’ Jesus to follow this instruction, but then, if we consider that Jesus also said, “I and the Father are One”. this means he is both saying and doing as he knows His Father would say and do.
God said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Speak to the children of Israel, so that they go forward”.
Translated into a more modern speech, ‘Why are you whining Moses? Do what I already told you – move!!’
The point I am trying to make is this.
In knowing God, we will recognize what to do in every situation arising in our lives, so why spend time bringing all our woes to God, rather than using our prayer time thanking Him, praising Him, worshipping Him?
James Allen said, “You are today, where your thoughts have brought you, you will be tomorrow, where your thoughts will take you”.
God coaches us by His Spirit through the vehicle of our minds; we filter this advice via our thoughts and on to our actions.
Whether, we are at peace and contentment with our lives or miserable and depressed, it is simply a result of thoughts in our minds that have led us to actions that will either support or oppose God’s coaching for our journey in this life.
Looking at it very clinically, every situation that has come about in our lives can be traced back to either following or not following God’s coaching.
What do you think? I really would value your opinion – so, why not comment?
