Let God be God! — Part 4 of 4
This is the final part of the mini series on letting God be God.
We have briefly discussed letting God be God; letting The Church be The Church; and letting children be children.
Now, as always, we look to God again!
Let God be God!
Each of us, God, you and I, and children all have a place in God’s Kingdom work here on earth.
We pray earnestly for God’s Kingdom to come and God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I suggest that, if we are to see the reality of that in our lives, then we all need to stick to our roles and encourage others and our children to play their part too.
If we were only to allow God to be God, without us restraining Him or restricting Him in any way, then our prayers will be answered, miracles would be an everyday occurrence, and the world would once again take notice of The Church of Jesus Christ.
God will do it — He promised in Numbers 23:19
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
Why must we always interfere and “help” God do His own work?
Why must we always give Him directions or advice? Does He not know best?
Why must we always pray our wants list without trusting Him for all that we need?
Leave Him to do His part — He is “The LORD, He is God” (1 Kings 18:39)
Think on all these things and let he who has ears to hear . . . . .
“Behold, The LORD God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance?
Who has directed the Spirit of The LORD, Or as His counsellor has taught Him? With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him, And taught Him in the path of justice? Who taught Him knowledge, And showed Him the way of understanding?
Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, And are counted as the small dust on the scales; Look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, Nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before Him are as nothing, And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.
To whom then will you liken God?” Isaiah 40:10-18
This is my God – Hallelujah \o/
