Left to ourselves

Psalm 78:59-65

A lot of people think that God prevents them from having fun in their lives, yes even us who follow him think so. Deep down the lie of the snake that startled Eve batters our heads too.

“What good thing God is keeping away from us”

For this very reason, we start and walk away from God thinking that outside him we will have a more fun driven life.
If we are sincere, most of us will confess that left to ourselves we do nothing but put our lives in constant trouble. Still, God is patient and ‘understanding’ he never keeps us by force to follow him, our wills are ours to operate. The Holy Spirit helps us always, still He is gentle and kind, he can be quenched and grieved by our choices. ( 1 Thessalonians 5:19, Ephesians 4:30)

We are created to live in harmony with our creator, all the time that we go our way, we abandon the only way that we can be truly fulfilled.

( See 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Hebrews 10:26-39,  Job 21:14
