Secular solutions or power of God: Words Overcome the rough spots
Secular solutions or power of God: one is for work and self-image, the other based Based on faith in words. What method overcomes life really rough spots?
Life is love, joy and passion. A walk on the beach, the sea breeze, and the hand of a lifelong spouse strengthens the bonds of love. A newborn kitten, a baby with big eyes, and the to awaken the wisdom of the grandparents of our joy. A snow-bound cabin, a roaring fireplace, and a special moment of privacy intensify the passion of the newlyweds.
Life is tempered with loneliness, sadness, and pain. Thieves steal the ox kill the servants, and let us out of business. Hail fire from heaven eaten sheep and servants alike, and we are stunned. Chaldeans fall on the camels, they steal away, and kills servants with the edge of the sword, and we are devastated. But everything is not ready yet, for pain and suffering have only just begun. There is more to come, much more, and the pain of it flows into our bones, so that we are sick in body, mind and spirit are deeply.
Can you see the land of Uz called in a fair, Job? In many ways it is like to us. He works to earn his living. He cares and provides for his family. He believes, and is, Jehovah, the God of creation. But on a day like any other Day, comes the peace of Job's life to an abrupt end.
On this day, on three separate but back-to-back occasions, three servants come to his door, each relaying a story of loss, destruction and death, any room, the same fateful words: "I'm alone with you to say escape. "
Oh, hear Job's groans. We know them well if we ever have feelings for each one of us at time or another from our own experiences, the sounds of promotion. But to report for job, and perhaps for many of us it is another servant. Watch it now be preceded by up to Job's door to know, not the terror that the message that he now wears. It is written as follows:
"While he was still speaking, someone came and said, Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house and it fell on the young men, and they are dead, and I'm only saying to you, Escape "(Job 1.18 to 19).
Took it to say to Job, that this last message one that spoke of sons and Daughters, and hopes that the future was ended and finished with stones of a fallen house? No, I do not think so, because these children were all that remained. As the last messenger came rushing job at home, this fair and honest servant of God must have known in his stomach an angry scream of consciousness. Even before talk of the messenger's words could, he must still bear torture, Job would have centered on his mind and heart.
The Secular Solution
This article is not much with broken arms, she deals with broken lives. I am not addressing the secular solution toothache, I'm emotional Stress and emotional problems concentrating. If it is not a physical ailment, and the disease is a symptom of mental, emotional or spiritual warfare a Medical attention. Pray first (it can keep you out of the hands of a hack). If a tooth is rotten to see a dentist. When a soul is bleeding, see God.
As the secular methods of dealing with emotional, mental and spiritual problems, I no longer accept their solutions. It is not blinded by the fact that I to make this decision, but to our experience. I have been to counseling, it is misleading and sometimes dangerous, and worthless as a rule. The same solution concepts, which have brought this nation, its figurative knees are those offered by secular-educated advisers. Do not seek God, not one.
A successful consultant has to his patients trust and obedience. I have observed, as they seek to crush the new Christian concepts of the living God. I have seen them, sometimes succeed. Not all Christians walk in the word. Not all are set in truth.
It's easier than people confidence to trust in God is. One, albeit temporary, has to feel real. The other is the spirit and can only be touched by faith. Worldly wisdom can be a God, so long as he is a god of convenience that is not does not affect the objectives of the consultant. As to the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the consultants often despised his name for them a barrier to further damage an already broken spirit.
Secular wisdom teaches us to accept ourselves as we are. "Hello, my name is Mike. I am an alcoholic, a fornicator, a bad mother, a drug addict, a Wife Beater, a thief, a liar, a homosexual, a gossip a fraud or whatever other label that is necessary to identify the problem. "The concept is simple: you can never change, you learn so to control it and will live with him. Or convince society that such behavior is natural.
We also have brought a place the blame to find, and then do so, to offer forgiveness if forgiveness is considered unacceptable in this case, we add "I am not in a position to pardon" to our list the labels. With this type of solution, nothing is ever finished. You can never become free to be an alcoholic or a fornicator. So you can take drugs, you sleep, and you Learning to cope with the weakness or memory, or the pain, and you claim to be happy. You learn to spit in the eye of God.
You can never say, "Hi, my name is Mike. I used to smoke cigarettes, but I do not smoke cigarettes. I may smoke cigarettes or even tomorrow completed before the day is, in the event that I will once again be a cigarette smoker. But for now, for this moment, I am a Non smoking. "Why is so safe that the rejection of a known fault is not tolerated by secular healing? For if a smoker, the secular solution that you should never be a Non smoking. Non smoking from the guilt of being a smoker are free. You no longer need a consultant.
I have peeled mother these questions. This is not an in-depth discussion the secular solutions for troubled souls, but it is an attempt to promote peace, to give the broken heart. Know that if the secular response to personal Failure is so far off base to the needs of the guilty, as have much less support it with a man or woman or child standing in the shoes job Add?
Power From God
What job to react his pain? The Bible states it this way:
"Then Job Stand up and tore his clothes and shaved his head and fell to the ground and prayed, saying: Naked, I'm out of my womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave and the Lord's has taken, Blessed be the name of the LORD. In all not the job sinned, nor charged God foolishly in "(Job 1:20-22).
How strange that he too wanted to accuse anyone. How strange that he openly expressed his pain. How honest, that he fully accepts his dependence on an omnipotent God. He had no need to consider how to find so a label of liberation. He did not seek the advice of other people (if other men would arrive soon, because many are waiting to tell you your faults and take A label, under which you have to live). He did not turn to pills. He did not doubt God's intentions. He also sought an opportunity to receive treatment on a special trip so that he away from it all and forget the pain.
Job realized his injured, God took the law had it done to bring its law so it went , and Job worshiped. How is it that this man could just as quickly come to terms with these losses? How is it that he found comfort in the prone position?
Written at the beginning of Scripture is clear that this job has risen steadily in the early morning and sacrificed God. This community is a daily with a living God. This is a man who has settled in his heart that matters of importance. This life is but a passing moment. We are here only for a little while. Job knew these things. He had already sat for the eternal glory.
Words overcome the Rough Spots
How can you also find this place, rested in which job? Stop listening to men. Instead of turning to God. The Bible is filled with words of correction, Judgement, anger and destruction. The Bible is filled with words of consolation, promise, assurance and peace. The measure of biblical truth is not limited to feel-good religion. All are the words of Elohim, Jehovah God. There are many, but I'll close with these few. Feel the force:
"Have Do not you? Have not you heard that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of earth, dull, neither is weary? There No searching of his understanding. He gives strength to the weary, and they have no power, that he might multiply. Even the youths shall faint and be matt, and the young men will fall entirely: But wait, that the Lord renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they run and not be weary, and they walk and not faint "(Isaiah 40:28-31).
Are you ready? Have you ever saved the words of power will blossom in you? If not start now. Call on the name of Jesus Christ, that He might fill with wisdom, truth, and the Holy Spirit of life.
