Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (Rom 1:28); Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6)~~
At times we may feel that we do not need God, but on the day when the storms of disappointment rage, the winds of disaster blow, and the tidal waves of grief beat against our lives, if we do not have a deep and patient faith, our emotional lives will be ripped to shreds. There is so much frustration in the world because we have relied on gods… rather than God. We have genuflected before the god of science only to find that it has given us the atomic bomb, producing fears and anxieties that science can never mitigate. We have worshiped the god of pleasure only to discover that thrills play out and sensations are short-lived. We have bowed before the god of money only to learn that there are such things as love and friendship that money cannot buy and that in a world of possible depressions, stock market crashes, and bad business investments, money is a rather uncertain deity. These transitory gods are not able to save us nor bring happiness to the human heart. Only God is able. It is belief, faith and reliance in Him that we must rediscover. With this we can transform bleak and desolate valleys into sunlit paths of joy and bring new light into the dark caverns of pessimism! (Martin Luther King, Jr- Strength to Love) God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts and His ways higher than our ways! Until we stop trying to show Him our plan and get to know His plan, our lives will be in turmoil as a result of our own choices!!!
