When fixing a car engine, any mechanic will attest, you have to use each and every gadget to facilitate it’s functionality. If the mechanic fails to use certain small bolts for joining different parts of the car engine, the engine will not work. He will have to dismantle everything and put every gadget in its rightful place from scratch. Can you fathom how a small gadget, can halt the functionality of a whole engine???
The same applies to our own bodies, if there is a certain part of the body aching, the entire body is never at ease. We take all the necessary measures to make sure, if we are experiencing a headache, we take medicine to relieve the pain which automatically makes the whole body well.
Using the above simple illustration, what is your understanding on God’s word, regarding every season of your life, while making life choices??Do you just rely on scriptures that seem to speak what you want to hear and ignore scriptures that challenge you, to do what God wants you to do, when faced with a tempting situation?Meditating,understanding and embracing God’s principles, which are laid out in His word, from the book of Genesis to Revelation is the only sure way of living a victorious life.
You know very well God in Deuteronomy 8:18 And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day, however when God prospers the work of your hands, you ignore His command to tithe and assume Malachi 3:10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! is of the old.
You know very well God will bless the work of your hands in Deuteronomy 28:12 but what are your hands doing to gain wealth??When faced with a temptation to bribe in order to get a tender, a business deal or a job??Do you make a choice depending on what God’s word says or do you just ignore it because it does not suit what you really want??You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. Deuteronomy 16:19
Please hear me out, we cannot separate the word of God and stick to what we want to hear!!! God breathed His life in each and every scripture, from Genesis to Revelation Each and every Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-18

Whenever we ignore God’s instructions and read scriptures that do not align with what God is instructing us to meditate on a particular season, we are in real sense walking in disobedience .Maybe you are struggling with fornication, lying, adultery, bitterness, jealousy, gossip, malice, strife or worry but when God instructs you to meditate on scriptures that will convict and deliver you from such struggles, you simply ignore His promptings..
Let me use my own life experience, to bring this point home .Sometime back while having my daily bible study in the book of Psalms, most scriptures were really aligning with what I desired to hear, however on this particular day, i was to study Psalms 139 and God really provoked me In vs.23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
I had a lot of un-dealt issues in my heart yet i was not willing to be broken before God. Most of the times I was trying to impress God and He was like!!Beaty stop impressing me, am your Father who created you.You can’t pretend before me neither can you hide your motive ,why you are doing what you do. Honestly!!This was not what my flesh wanted to hear on that particular day but that’s exactly what God wanted me to read, In order to speak to my Spirit man, which led to my vulnerability before God. I have blogged about Trying to impress God and Simple Ways to study your Bible which I believe are good reads, to connect with this particular post.
My question to you on this post is, are you meditating on scriptures that suit what you want to hear and intentionally ignoring scriptures that provoke you to change or grow??
This is my challenge to you my beloved blog reader; pursue to have a clear understanding of God’s word, by meditating on scriptures, He instructs you to read, in all seasons of your life. Don’t just rely on what pleases you?Be after knowing the mind/heart of God and His will concerning every detail of your life..
