(a) What I have observed during many decades of living, is that most people compare their brains and capabilities with God’s, and still declare that they “will do ‘it’ my way; I’ll run my life as I see fit.” (God has given a free will to everyone). Logically, can any honest person really compare their brain and capability with our God who created everything we see, and much other that we can’t see?

Why wouldn’t everyone deeply desire to avail themselves of the wisdom of our mighty God? Mankind rejects God because their prideful minds can’t begin to conceive of the magnificence of His mind! It takes the greatest minds on earth just to unravel merely a smidgeon of God’s creation, and then think they are so great because they did.

(b) Going through hard times . . . God has informed us in His word (the Bible) that He made us with great capabilities, but one was not ~ to worry! without consequences. Worry saps our strength, which makes us more unable to figure out solutions to problems we worry about! This further drags us down, further saps our strength, making our ‘worrying’ even more damaging to us physically.

In a real sense, worry is really unbelief: not believing that God wants the best for us and will walk beside us as we go through life’s challenges, sharing our problems and providing solutions. As the song writer Andre Crouch wrote from personal experience: “if I never had a problem, I wouldn’t know that God would solve them, and I wouldn’t know what trust in God could do.

“Worry wiggles itself into our lives when we shove God aside, off the “throne” of our life. Destructive worry comes about when we take our eyes and attention off Jesus and focus on the ‘problem.’ This is when unbelief wiggles its way into our consciousness like a cancer.

So God suggests letting Him carry and deal with our worries. Jesus tells us: “Come unto me you who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (peace). [Matthew chapter 11, verses 28-30] (c) God is always the perfect “gentleman,” respecting our right to a free will that He endowed us with, that He, the God/Creator of the universe, does not force His will on us .

He easily could, but refrains. We all must choose to follow Him . . . willingly!

Mathew Kelly in: “Holy Moments,” writes:

“The future of the world quite literally depends on humanity accessing its spiritual intelligence. But, the abolition of God, religion and spirituality from modern secular culture, and the prioritization of knowledge over Wisdom, has left us in a place of desperate spiritual poverty.”

Albert Einstein observed: “No problem can be solved from the same consciousness (mankind) that created it.” [Sin entered the world through mankind’s actions; mankind can not fix it. Only God can.]

 The Bible says: It is high time that mankind stopped searching for worldy solutions to spiritual problems (lack of hope, chaos, anxiety, lack of morality, good is now bad - bad is now good, in-your-face evil).

The solution begins with Wisdom that comes from God, and doing life under God’s instruction and guidance! [Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowlege, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”]

And that solution only comes after mankind acknowledges God, understands Jesus’ role in bringing forgiveness of sins, and that God desires to be the most important part of our lives in order to have us enjoy an exceptional life, both here and in Heaven . . . no matter how we may have lived our lives before accepting Him as our Savior and Lord.
