Romans 1:21 NIV
“For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish heart were darkened”
Many of us go through life knowing who God is but believe that is enough and all that God expects of us. We see Churches and believe that one day we will need to go but never find the time. We turn through the radio stations and come across one of those channels which talks about burning in hell if you don’t repent.
It is important to understand that God has a plan for us all. As we move through life, God will put speed bumps in front of you to remind you that He is still there even if you don’t recognize Him. Sometimes He has to get a bit more aggressive to get your attention. God is patient and will wait for you to come around. What does that mean? God wants to have a relationship with each one of us. So much so that he gave His Son to die for you so that you can be close to Him through Jesus Christ. God can’t be close to sin. Jesus removes the sin as a filter so you can talk to God the Father through Jesus Christ.
God does not want to be just someone you know about. He wants to be involved and help you through the pitfalls of life. He wants you to succeed, but to do that, you will need to take the time to understand Him in all His Glory and lean on Him. Once you let Him lead and include Him in your choices, you will see things smooth out in your life. However, you have to listen or you might see some gentle nudges to get you back between the lines.
God is great all the time. Just chose to let Him help you.
