It is fascinating to see how people like me and you can become relaxed (comfortable) with God. We relax just enough to be able to take the pressure off ourselves. We tend to get into a measuring system to get this done. Somehow we think……. You know God, I have been serving you faithfully, and done everything right. Why don’t you do this or that, or why have you still not healed me?
We measure our seemingly good behaviour to discredit him. This is called counselling. All good counselling works from the perspective that the one counselled must be assisted in seeing the whole picture. When the one counselled is given enough insight into a situation it is logical tat he will realise his misguided actions were wrong and then re- evaluate his mindset.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”
“Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
He is in no need of our cunseling. He is in no need of counselling, WE ARE. If something don’t make sense it is because our sense is faulted, not His.
