Great and Unsearchable Things

Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

Come, and Follow Me.

"You are not your own; you were bought with a price." When we get emboldened to be our own "man/woman" deciding what we will/will not do with our lives, we get further and further away from God. The relationship soon weakens, we begin to feel dry, and, if not remedied overtime, will die altogether. That is a high price to pay for following our own will instead of seeking His. We are taught, by the world, to make our own way, and take care of ourselves because no one else will. That strong-armed independence, if not shed ,when the One who died for us comes into our lives, resists the wisdom, love and care our Heavenly Father offers us, resulting in spiritual death. This can happen anytime in our lives, even if we think we are still in relationship with Him. Oh, how dark is that darkness. Like the parable of the Sower (Mark 4) many don't make it to the end. If we desire the leeks of Egypt, or how it was before our "exodus" ,God promises to send us a wasting disease. That is what I'm talking about. "Better is one day in your courts, (where you and your Will is) then thousands elsewhere."
