#Misunderstood: Understanding the Nature of God

Misunderstood


—–Understanding the Nature of God—–


Have you ever been negatively accused of being something or someone you’re not? Usually you would brush it off, if a complete stranger made accusations about you. You might not see them again and they are not close enough to you to make a true assessment of your character. It’s awkward and upsetting, however, when people who are supposed to know you, don’t know your nature at all. So, you can only imagine how God must feel when people are claiming to serve Him and be friends with Him are misunderstanding and misjudging His character.

How many times have you accused God of being unfair or anything BUT good because He did NOT give you something? Have you assumed the Master was harsh because of your circumstances? This is a dangerous place to be in as a Christian. I would know because when God was trying to break me free of an atheist mindset, I struggled with thoughts like this due to my inability to see God’s hand moving on my life.

The Original Call

—> Struggling with feeling like people are stealing your purpose? Read this!<–

So, you finally found God’s will for your life. You’ve found your purpose; you found the path that you were meant to go down. You spent time in prayer seeking God and He’s finally revealed to you where you truly belong. You now realize every door that was shut on you and everyone who rejected you in the past was God gently nudging you and guiding you into what He really wanted you to do. The door was opened to you and you walked through it without looking back.

Unfortunately, when you went into your new season you now notice that people that never even talked about doing the work you’re doing are suddenly trying to do what God told YOU to do! What’s worse is that it’s plain as day that they are not graced to handle that call and they are trying to force something that God never ordained in the first place. What do you do when someone is committing identity theft in the Spirit against you?! There’s no need to fret or be distraught over this because God has seen it all, let’s turn to 1st Corinthians :

The Indecisive Leader

Indecisive

–>Knowing God’s Will<–

Thirteen year old girls are moody, sometimes bubbly, or sometimes crabby. One thing I’ve learned from being one and chatting with some, is they might change their mind at the drop of the hat. One minute they’re bffs with Jessica, the next her and Jessica are having a huge argument. One minute they think Taylor Swift is the best singer ever, the next minute they’re moving on to Beyoncé. If anyone would know the smell of indecision it would be them, or at least their mothers. Could you imagine though if your boss or CEO at your company was this indecisive? Hiring people and firing people, but then changing his/her mind a few seconds later. Unfortunately most people think that God and his will are like this.

—>False Prophets: How to spot a counterfeit?<—

There are a lot of different ministries and things written or spoken about God online currently. The internet is littered and cluttered with more information than anyone bothers to look at or read. Clutter tends to lead not only to distraction, but also to confusion. This confusion is often in what ministry or minister to listen to. Who do you trust when multiple people are barking similar yet different messages at you? Who is telling the truth? It’s so easy to struggle with being able to tell the difference between good sound biblical doctrine and ‘teaching’ that’s just for entertainment or show. We almost have to become like Phoenix Wright in the game Ace Attorney and analyze each message word by word to spot the contradiction in their story.
