I am the Lord your GOD who brought you out of the land of Egypt out of the house of slavery. Exodus 20:1
Do you want to know why were are all connected? We are all connected because we are all descendants. He rescued all of us from the very beginning. He brought our descendants out of slavery. That’s how it was looked at back them.
Fast forward from generation to generation he has rescued your families from something because the Commandments are made for us to sin.
So what he is saying I rescued you. Why can’t you listen to me. Why can’t you be grateful. Did you know that right before he wrote the Commandments and right after he parted the Red Sea can you imagine a sea being parted isn’t that powerful. Anyways sorry it’s very fascinating and makes so much sense to have faith.
So Moses takes the Israelites to the wilderness. They were complaining. Just like we do. He gives us something we have asked for yet we go back to the old way right as we get it. In the wilderness they start complaining about food and water. There was food and water just not the kind they wanted.
Sound familiar? I for sure know that I can relate. Never being happy with what you have and always wanting more. Such as life today. So Moses is like does not say a word except he goes to GOD and says your people want water. And GOD ok take the staff and strike the rock and water will flow out of it. So Moses the man of GOD does exactly that and they get water.
Instead of being grateful they still complained if we are going live like this you should have left us with the Egyptians. When do we leave the wilderness.
Again GOD tells Moses let’s go. That is when they got to the Mountain. By this Moses is just in Awe of how they can act like that.
Can you relate to any of this in your own life? Getting or having what you want however like said want more you get more and want even more. Never pleased.
And I command joy, for man has nothing better under the sun but to eat, drink and be joyful, for this will go with him in his toil for the days of his life that GOD has given him under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:15
He’s demanding joy because everything under the sun is meaningless because he wants us to love and trust him.
Another question is how can you blame GOD when he clearly warns you just like the Israelites you shall love me for I brought you out of slavery.
Slavery meaning slavery to self slavery to everything that you love more than him.
So when he disciplines us for what you choose free will to do to get your attention who’s fault is it?
Who is to blame. Blaming GOD or someone else. It’s harder to look at ourselves and take responsibility then it is to easily blame GOD Or someone else.
My question to you is this:
Ask yourself and write down all the times a prayer was answered. Why you thought it was answered either by prayer or meditating whatever it is for you. Then ask yourself why you think it was answered then how long did it take to forget about GOD
Then go back when you needed something else.
You guys we are all like this at one point. I used to be like this as well. He will continue to rescue I promise you that because his Love fir us in unconditional however if he keeps on disciplining you don’t get mad at him. Figure out what it is you need to do to make it right and do it.
Work on it. Ask in prayer for guidance. GOD does not discipline us for no reason.
When you come to terms that God made everything, man and beast. And made everything for a purpose it is then you start to change and realize his unconditional love for you. It is then things start falling into place. It is then that you start seeing more abundance in your life. It is then that mountains start moving because you are obeying him.
GOD is a loving GOD and he only disciplines us over and over in hope that you turn to him completely. Trusting him completely. The most important loving him and others like he loves us.
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid. Proverbs 12:1
You are the tree of knowledge and he is the water. Are brains are conditioned to how we are taught.
So be patient with yourself. It took dang near 6 years my friends for me. That’s almost a decade. Four years shy of a decade. If I am not mindful of what I am feeding my brain, who I’m hanging out with or how I’m thinking then it’s sooooo easy to go backwards.
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals”. 1 Corinthians 15:33
If you seriously want change you have to change old people and play grounds. Even if you think your strong enough. Let me tell you no matter what it’s easy to get caught up again. You are who you hang out with no matter how long the journey.
Surround yourself with good people, people who are like minded. Please trust in this on. I learned the hard way.
With that being said. Goodnight
Sleep with the Angels and be sure to be grateful too.
Father I think you for what you do to us for us and with us. In Jesus name.
