Every problem, trial, tribulation and crisis that occurs in life people want to blame God or someone else for it.What I fail to understand is why people blame God when the “person” who is the source and catalyst for all this mess is the devil. So why are you blaming God? He didn’t put us in the predicaments or conditions we are in. We all make our own choices and decisions without acknowledging Him but if we include Him in our plans He will put us on the right path.
Proverbs 3:5-6 distinctly tells us to,”Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding; In all thy ways acknowledge Him (God), and He shall direct your path.” Once again I ask why are you blaming God? Did you follow His instructions and if you didn’t then you know who messed up, you did. Listen, when you mess up you have to fess up (confess). Admit you followed and listened to the men of this world as well as your desires and not GOD of the universe. The last being you should ever point a finger to in condemnation is God. While you’re pointing your finger the devil is rejoicing and laughing at you.The devil is our biggest adversary and enemy. He accuses us daily in front of God. He is trying to get us to fail and he will not stop, why, because his intentions are for us to go to hell and burn for all eternity with him. How do I know he is the one to be blamed for our trials, tribulations, problems, and burdens? Well lets take a look at Revelation 12:7-11 which reads:
“And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer, so the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old called the devil and satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,”Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ has come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God, day and night, has been cast down and they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death …woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that his time is short.”
Now that you see who is really to be blamed you can quit blaming God? Another example is found in the book of Job where he (Job) was accused by satan, because all the devil does is run up and down the earth, like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Job 1:7 and 1 Peter 5:8 tells us that is all the devil does, satan seeks the ones who are weak in their faith or the non believer to devour. In 1 Peter 5:8 we are told to be sober and vigilant. We cannot afford to give the devil an inch, because he will take a yard, and before you know it he fully takes over. Come on folks lets identify the real culprit and stop blaming God.
How are we living for God? Can He (God) brag about us to satan like he did in Job 2:3 where God said to satan,”Hast thou considered my servant Job…who is a perfect and upright man,one that feareth God and despises evil…” Can God say that about you? Have you accepted God’s gift of His only begotten son? Well here is your opportunity. Go to the top of this blog, click on the salvation page and follow the instructions.
