In Proverbs 18:2 (NIV), it quotes “Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions.” Another key point to always quickly remember also is that in 1 Timothy 6:11 (NIV), it says “But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.”
Sometimes, whenever you feel as if there is nothing left that you can do, as if everything seems too much for you to handle, complete, or finish, or when you may feel as if something is just “hopeless or pointless,” DO NOT BELIEVE IN SUCH WORDS! Whenever you feel like this, just call on and pray to God. Just because we cannot physically ‘see’ Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father does not mean that He is not listening to us or hear our calls and our cries out for Him. Sometimes, just like the man in this image, I just stop what I’m doing for a minute, reach up to God, and pretend as if I am giving Him a big-and-tight hug. There is nothing wrong with acknowledging that He is still watching over us and caring for His children. I am thankful and I will forever acknowledge His works and what all He has done in my life because let’s be honest: I will not be here (alive, talking, typing, etc.), without Him.
It’s sad to say, but it is inevitably true, that we may continually be around an individual or people who choose to ignore some form of truth that someone speaks of or out to them. One main example is of God’s Word: The Bible. Yes, I, too, experienced times when speaking about the Bible seemed okay for some and yet bad, strange, and even weird for others. Despite what’s happening on the outside of us or around us does not mean we have to change what’s on the inside of us, which is our spirit.
According to Psalms 119:9 (NIV), it reads “How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.” I will admit that whenever I slip up in reading and studying His Word, I would feel this form of a ‘tug’ that’s happening between the Lord and the enemy in regards for what I should do. I dislike turning away from God and will return back into my studies, like that of a student in a classroom. This is what we should do… and what I should continue training and practicing daily to do.
Most importantly is that there is, and will always be, a lost soul that is willing to open their heart and listen to what we have to say and teach them about the Lord we serve and listen to. I study so that I can one day inspire, study along with, and teach something to someone who is open to hear my voice. Some may delight in destruction, but I am one of those souls that will forever delight in serving the Lord. 🙂
