People do, using plenty of Excuses; it was God’s will. No, it wasn’t, it was yours. God doesn’t make bad decisions, and He didn’t make a decision for you, period. But we are right about one thing. “God Doesn’t Make Mistakes.” the context in which it is used most of the time is what’s wrong, wrong, wrong.
We have to make choices, but it is sad to say, sometimes we make the wrong ones, then try to justify them. Saying things like; “no one is perfect, but Jesus,” with a matter of fact attitude.
An example of blaming God, on decisions we make in everyday English is; Having a baby out-of-wedlock, using the baby as a tool, hoping the man will join you, and or leave his family. Thinking this baby will seal the deal. (This rarely works.) “Gotta, Blame Somebody.” Why not God? It will lessen the load, after all, it is a baby. Another excuse.
FYI; this is not what God wants for us, or the baby. Let’s keep it real. Denial is an excuse for wrongdoings, and Lust is the culprit.
Proverbs 18:22 says; “Whoso finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtain the favor of the Lord.”
For a woman who finds a man finds a fool, in my opinion.
Not understanding that a “House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord. Proverbs 19:14.
So to justify that pregnancy, she often claims God did not make a Mistake. She’s right, God didn’t do it. It was a mistake, made on your own; causing all types of problems that come with bad decisions. Now don’t get me wrong the blame falls on both sides of the fence. Often time’s, sheer ignorance is a major factor. Another reason we need Christ led teachers in all things.
Not only, married men or women, in acts of adultery, unmarried people, doing the unthinkable. Lacking self-respect, completely out of control in some situations. Unaware of how we are hurting ourselves. Excuses, excuses, blaming God for the circumstances of our life. When all the facts lead to bad decisions we made.
Some decisions result from lack of experience, some are just foolish. Most times, they are bad because of who we perceive ourselves to be. God is not the reason we are like we are. He already knows who we are, and did not make a mistake. We are the way we are because of the decisions we made/make.
There is a disconnection between us and God if we feel He is the blame for our bad decisions. If this is truly the case, it’s easy to fix. Declare Him your Lord and Savior, then Pray before you act.
I am using these parables to drive my message home, not to point a finger. We are talking about excuses, for making bad decisions, then laying blame on God, or anyone available, as long as the blame does not fall on the guilty, in layman terms, so all can understand. Got it?
Untrained, selfish minds lead to self-destruction, and often times the demise of others. Drugs used to put us in a stupor, so as not to face the world in which we live, lying, to cover up some act that should have never unfolded. Cheating, applied to everything we do, because of a lack of confidence in one’s own abilities. Laziness; having no desire to accomplish something, willing to let someone else do the work while plotting to steal and claim it to be our own. Causing pain, every step of the way because we feel, “if it happens to me everyone else should suffer too.” Throwing blame around like you’re “taking out the trash.”
I could go on and on. Making excuses, for everything from A-Z, and God still didn’t have anything to do with whatever it was. Blame it on the Flesh, and this time you will be right. “No doubt about it.”
Some of us are in such a habit of making excuses and blaming God, we don’t realize when one is not necessary. No Faith in one’s self. “If I tell the truth, no one will believe me anyway.”
We are so full of excuses we can’t hear others, causing us to argue with those who agree. Often asking the question: “why won’t anyone believe me?” Well, now, maybe your reputation is known to be suspect. Some of us have never tried, to be Honest. For some their self-esteem is so low, it is impossible to believe we can become a person of character, unaware of, “Nothing is impossible thru Christ.”
It’s time to step up to the plate, in order for us to better ourselves, time is not on our side, and will never be. We cannot depend on others to save us from our ways and our not taking responsibility for our own actions/inactions; We need a higher power for that. We cannot do it alone, the good news is it is available through Jesus Christ.
Yes, we make mistakes, but know this; they can be repaired. Once we seek the Kingdom of God, we are on the path to change. Owning up to us, and deciding to accept Christ into our Hearts, making a sincere effort to improve our mindset, in order to make strides; by taking on the responsibility to stop laying blame.
Knowledge is more important than some may want to acknowledge; Common sense is Golden, and Jesus is Lord.
GOD DOESN’T MAKE MISTAKES, BUT OFFERS US THE OPPORTUNITY TO CORRECT OURS. FOR THAT I AM THANKFUL. YOU SHOULD BE TOO.
