The world these days seems like a strange riddle to be solved. Everything appears to have a veneer of what one side of something wants you to see it as . Upon deeper examination most things are not what they appear to be. I have seen much evil appear as good and good appear as evil. A person has to be a regular Sherlock Holmes to get to the truth of a matter.
There is a way that seems right to a person, but its end is the way to death. Proverbs 14:12. This causes me to take a pause today to figure out what is the way of life? In the book of John he tells up Knowing God is eternal life. Knowing is an on going statement. It indicates an on going ,forever revelating relational experience. Like every relationship continued interaction brings you more understanding of the person your in relationship with. When you know them well ,someone can tell you something about them and from your knowledge of them you can know beyond a doubt that it is true or false.
I think my focus today is on the fact of all I know I have been told by the people around me or by whatever media I have listened to . Everyone has an agenda whether they realize it or not, including me. How do I find the real truth in the midst of this tornado of information?
Jesus said to test the spirit of a thing . The only way I have found to do that is to have the Holy Spirit in me who testifies to all truth. I can never leap to a conclusion on anyone or any circumstance by my first look. The veneer will fool me . The eyes of the Holy Spirit go deeper penetrating the veneer.
Jesus called Him our counselor and guide. I need to always make sure I am listening to the one true voice that was sent to help me.
God can do everything but He has chosen to raise up human children to work through to accomplish all the wonderful things He has planned for His children. If we listen to the wrong spirit we will destroy instead of build the with God.
