Give Him the chance!

January 15, 2019

God has always been around, and He hasn’t changed. It is we who haven’t been around him enough, and it is we who are fickle in our allowance of Him (often only in fits and starts). Any surprise then that we don’t know or have enough of God?! What we’ve known of Him, we know from the people who lent themselves to God, and lent themselves fully! This fits with Scripture too:

From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come.”

Matthew 11:12-14

It is true of men in the distant past (OT), as Noah, ol’ Abe, Moses, David, the prophets; it is true of people around Christ, Mary, the Apostles; it is true of people in the church era: great church fathers, reformers, Martin Luther, on into the missionaries of the modern world, a Hudson Taylor, a David Livingstone, William Carey.

If we haven’t known God enough or had enough of His blessings, it is not God, it is us! All who gave themselves wholly to God touched great highs of their fulfilled and self-actualized humanities. So must we, if we expect to enjoy more of God’s greatness and goodness in our lives. It appears as a corporate humanity, we simply haven’t given him a chance!

We must.
