Can man ever be satisfied?
Even when man had no consciousness but was just an idea in the consciousness of God till he was given form, made a living soul, given dominion, a job and a female help meet for him not a “Tom”. He still blamed God for the gift he was given when he fell as a result of adding to the instruction God gave him.
“The Woman you gave me”
He could have just said “The woman” but he just had to add “the one you Jehovah, gave me yeah?” He didn’t think it had anything to do with the instruction going from “Don’t eat this fruit” to “Don’t touch this fruit”.
Insignificant you may think, but that little twist open the door for the devil to further twist the truth, deceive the woman and did verily spoil the vine till Jesus came and fixed it.
No wonder when Jesus gave John the book of revelation, he said “blessed is he who doesn’t add or remove from it cos he knew a lot of people had already missed it.
Can man ever be satisfied?
Today he is craving for control and expression for his inventions to the extent he kicks the Lordship of Jesus out of his institutions but retains some principles that favor his selfish ambitions.
But when a trigger happy kid goes spraying bullets in his school you hear things like “why didn’t God stop this?” Or where was God when this or that happened? Really??? Like really???? Which God?
The one you kicked out from the very start
or the one you left knocking at the door of your heart?
Truth is we have seen men so satisfied they knew when their time to go had come
So with their own hands they blessed their children and grand children, gathered their feet and slept off cos their work was done.
So satisfied they rejected the gifts of kings so the sufficiency of their God wasn’t under rated.
So satisfied that even after fasting for forty days and forty nights didn’t sell their birthright for food like the one God hated.
So with all that has been said, I do have a suggestion.
Can we now ask the real question
Can your flesh ever be satisfied?
If it could be, Samson would have known something was wrong when each time he replied Delilah’s question about the source of his strength with a trick answer it was acted on to actually destroy him. I guess the confidence in his flesh and it’s abilities supersaturated his mind till his hair was shaved and eyes plucked out.
He flesh just wanted more and more, but when it’s done we all know what it has in store
We have all been there at one time or the other,
you know you shouldn’t be breaking this principle but you say to yourself, “God’s grace is sufficient and the devil ain’t gat nothing a brother”.
So you lie on the same bed with that sister reading the bible,
talking about the goodness of the Lord when really your opinions have become your idol. Even the Son of God observed principles and never tested God, plus you could never catch him idle.
So you better stop blaming that sister cos it’s clear you shot yourself in the foot with your own rifle.
Sometimes our minds fed with God’s word tries to stop us from abusing things the flesh loves like sugar, sodas and junk food.
But it takes more than Knowledge to stop a strong craving especially when you are in the mood.
If not the knowledge that Murder and Adultery was against the law should have stopped David from killing Uriah and taking his wife Bathsheba.
Or our Father of Faith from even after Gods promises still heeding to Sarah request for him to enter Hagar.
Or Peter from denying the master even though he made up his mind against the master’s counsel that he wasn’t going to deny him,
Or the same Peter from rebuking our Savior concerning his death, burial and resurrection even though moments ago the spirit of God through Peter helped Define him.
Even Jesus had to guard his heart from the intelligence of his mind by choosing to see Lazarus as sleeping instead of dead.
He also had to guard his heart from his flesh by letting God’s will be done even though he was feeling sorrowful at Gethsamane because even him flesh know say “E don Red”.
The truth is our heart was made to be led by the spirit of God not by our strength, flesh or five senses.
So it’s not just our flesh or strength we should be guarding our heart from but those intelligently crafted tenses.
Imagine if Peter focused on knowing they had toiled all night without catching anything and never obeyed the instruction of the master.
Imagine if that woman observed the reasoning of the disciples she never would have broken that alabaster.
Imagine if they focused on the knowledge of how long Lazarus had been dead and never opened the grave for Jesus to raise him unto Joy and laughter.
The Truth is as you grow in Christ, what you should guard you heart against changes.
Just as the temptations and trials orchestrated by the devil rearranges.
You Gotta guard your heart against anything that isn’t God’s voice.
Cos even the best things at the wrong time would cause nothing but interference and noise.
Who told you you must keep up with the kardiashans?
Who told told you must be the best at playing the latest version of “The God of War”?
Anything that makes us sleep should be avoided cos that’s when the devil sows weeds that causes us to miss what God has in store.
Cos we let unhealthy things slip into our hearts when we prioritise the inventions of men over this book of the law.
