Do we really think we have better ideas than God’s? Are we foolish enough to believe our plans are good and fair, and God needs to get on board? We can fight our own battles, but Isaiah warns us that we will be fighting against God. Do we honestly think we’ll win?
God has a solution for all the bad things in the world. He has the means for turning evil hearts into holy hearts. He’s provided a way to change hate into love:
The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (7:14)
God with us!
God has the answer to all that is wrong in our world. He sent His Son to BE the answer!
If I have a medical question, I don’t go to a two-year-old for answers. If I need advice I don’t ask an infant what he thinks I should do. Yet we are acting equally irresponsible when we listen to the advice and follow the plans of our fellow, fallen, sinful man. Whether it’s the CDC, Black Lives Matter, Joel Osteen, Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Lebron James, or any number of “exerts” in all that is wrong with the world, we are asking two-year-olds to solve our problems.
There is only one answer. There is only one plan that will see success. There is only one person’s advice that is worth listening to.
Read your Bible. Get to know the Answer. Follow His Plan. Obey God and see our world change.
Do you think you have a better idea? Seriously?
