I’ve worked with people who say that they wanted me to succeed but were secretly sabotaging whatever I’d do. Unfortunately, I’m not the only person to experience this. You ask for help or directions and what they gave wasn’t given to help you thrive but rather stumble or fail.
The good news with God is that He longs to see us grow, mature, and develop into strong Believers that thwart the enemy’s attempts to cause us to crack, crumble, and fall. He’s given His word to be our basic instructions before leaving earth. Even though men are constantly trying to alter the Bible, God is so powerful and all-knowing that the core, the power, what we need to be a Light for God remains …if we seek Him and spend time in our Word.
Why not follow the One who is always in your corner rooting for you when you excel and when you fall short? A life lived for Him shouldn’t be complicated. He’s already given us all we need.
