You’re A Wreck? Congratulations!

April 22, 2017


Let’s see, you trusted in your emotions and that roller coaster collapsed.  You trusted in your mind and it is distracted, confused and just not at its peak.  You trusted in your goodness and good works,  but the Holy Spirit has shown you your depravity and the devil has beaten you down with it.  You trusted in people and they let you down. You trusted in your health, but it is failing.  You trusted in your wealth and the markets crashed.   You trusted in your job and works skills, but you are unemployed. You trusted in your denomination, but your soul is hungry and dry.  You trusted in your country, but it is divided and torn.  You have trusted in your common sense in a senseless world.  In fact, everything you trusted in has flaws and failings and you are at rock bottom!  Alleluia!

2 Cor 1:8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

You are blessed far more than you know because now you have nothing to trust in but God!  Oh, has it come to that?  YES, and it is about time!  You say you trusted God.  No, you trusted in religion and in the god you made and wanted him to be, but now you have to find and trust the God who is!  Throw everything down at His feet.  Ask Christ to forgive and save you or if you are His ask Him to forgive you for your misplaced trust and misunderstanding of who He is and receive all you need.  Not all you want, necessarily, but all you need in His time and method, not yours!  He is there and He wants to bless you, but He wants your trust.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

It has always been about trust or faith.  Adam, don’t eat that fruit.  Moses, have the people look a brass snake on a pole to be healed.   Believe that Jesus is God in the flesh and died on a cross for your sins and raised again to prove it.  It is all about trust.  Trust to be forgiven and trust as you go through life even when you cannot sense His presence.  When all looks like Hell instead of Heaven.  In the face of death even though you want to live.

Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him

Job had a wrong view of God and yet he trusted Him to death.   Let us do the sane except let us seek to know Him as He really is, not in our imaginations or traditions.  He wants a relationship, but no relationship does well without trust.   He can be trusted and you cannot.  You cannot match Him in faithfulness.  You have already seen how much you fail by yourself.  Let Him come in and mold you into His image and you will see a change.  You will become more faithful and He will be faithful when you fail during your training.

1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

You’re a wreck?  Congratulations!  You are ready to be saved and trust in the only trustworthy Being in existence.  He has been waiting for you to get where you are so you will turn to Him.  His arms are open, now open your heart to Him!  Has it come down to that?  YES, and thank God that it has, for now, your life can change!  Maranatha!
