Daily Devotional: Never Become This Woman, Never Be Attached To This Kind Of Woman

At the beginning of time, the scriptures make us understand that God made man in His image and after His likeness. This statement a lot of times has been misconceived. Many have said God is flesh like the man He created since his creation is made in flesh and after His likeness. This misconception and many other misconceptions are why many people have not learned to live their lives after the order of God; after His directions and in the manner that He has predetermined for each man to live. This is why you will see many people living their lives without God. No direction, no certainty of what will come from it and no assurance of what the future holds for them. This is the perfect description for the man who is God-less; one who lives his life or her life without God’s directions.
God’s plan for every man is that each man would live out the plans and ordinations of God.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV)

Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God,
as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.’
Hebrews 10:7 (ESV)

The scriptures above both point us to the existence of purpose for a man. Every man’s purpose has been before the man’s existence and that same purpose will remain at the death of the man. You cannot live life right if you do not understand the plans of God for you. How do you know the purpose of a thing that was made or created if the maker or creator does not explain it to you? How do you understand the working principles of a thing or the dynamics of its operation within the sphere it was created to function?
When you newly acquire a gadget or equipment, one of two things is certain to happen for you to e able to operate it. You have either acquired the requisite knowledge you need for its operation before buying it or you have to go through the manual guide to operating the equipment. If you do not have this knowledge or just newly acquire it, chances are that you will misuse the new gadget. In the same vein, you can misuse the life that God has given to you. You can misappropriate the reason for your existence and begin to live your life aimlessly. You might be getting results and seemingly be making ends meet but you are not just living out the reason why God has created you.

Too many people in these times do not have the necessary knowledge about God. Let’s even start from the fact that different sects have a different understanding of and varying beliefs in God. No central and generally accepted knowledge of God. Of course, that’s not to mention that there are countless thousands and perhaps millions who do not even believe in the existence of God. It makes no meaning to them that there is a supreme being beyond human comprehension who facilitates the existence of time. They believe that time and chance simply happen to all men. While that is completely true, what they failed to acknowledge is that the same time and chance must be in the care of a being.

The challenge of the belief in God’s existence stems mainly from the fact that many want to comprehend God. When the appropriations of their mind cannot sum up the personality of God based on human judgments, they conclude that it does not make any sense to say that God exists. Think about this, how do you think you can comprehend the one who made time? How do you think the God who controls time and chance can be confined to the same things He controls? This can only prove to us that He is not actually in charge of the same things we thought were in His control. Every creator or maker is not subject to its creation. Rather, the creation is subject to the plans and desires of its maker.

God is sovereign, He is almighty, omnipotent, omnipresent, loving, caring, comforting, and any other wonderful description you can ascribe a man. As a matter of truth, nothing befits God as an expression of thanksgiving. God in all His majesty has not separated Himself from us. At every point in time, He wants to commune with us. One of the reasons for being created is for fellowship but many people have neglected this function. They have decided to live their lives the way they want; they want to lead their lives without guidance from the one who made them.
Scriptures record countless stories and documentation of God’s personality to mankind over time. He reveals different dimensions of Himself to man; God is multidimensional and so, no single person can have an entire experience of all the dimensions of God at a time. God cannot even be known totally.
