Why do some believers move from death to life, darkness to light, chaos to order and depression to joy while other believers seem to continue in the misery of chronic failure and lives filled with drama and lack? Have we not all been made new creations? Are we not all filled with the very presence and nature of God? Why are the results so different? Does God love some more than others, or does He treat some better than others?
God is not the variable. God is continually and constantly good, unchanging and has provided for man’s every need through the Gospel. Understanding the true nature of God is the first step in breaking free from failure, loss and heartache.
The variable has always been man. Consider the following:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6)
For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.' (Mt. 13:15)
and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2 Tim. 4:4)
they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (2 Thess. 2:10)
The Choice Is Yours
You can choose your future and your destiny. You can choose to allow the Spirit to love through you. You can choose receive the joy of the Lord, to renew your mind, to pray in the Spirit, to be a doer of the Word, to give and forgive and to live by faith.
God is not the variable in our lives. Grace is a constant, abundant provision for every need. The variable is our will. We choose to be passive or active in our relationship with God. “He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Heb. 11:6)
