Step Up Not Down

People love to tear others down in order to build themselves up. Believers are not immune to this challenge, which can carry over to their view of God.
There are times when what the Spirit is asking the secure child of God to do is hard to understand. The believer has two options at this point. They can lower God to their way of thinking in order to understand Him or they can rise to God’s way of thinking.
Jeremiah 2:5 states by lowering God to yourself, you’re now following a worthless idol and will become worthless yourself. Anything other than Jesus is an idol, no matter how we dress up that idol, even with Christian language.
A God defined by you, however good your intentions may be, is one controlled by you; thus, making you god. There is no other way to say it – are you god or is Jesus? Yet, there will be times you won’t understand what Jesus asking you do. Will you trust Him and step toward Him or trust yourself and step away from Him?
At those hard to understand times, it’s time to exercise the truth by faith Spirit empowered and take a step up. You’ll be glad you did.
