So my sister posted this image that initially had the girl on the ground as “me” the girl on top “life” and the one with the camera is “god’, which had soooo many likes and comments on it and I get it…its meant to be funny and some may say chill its not that serious…I can see my sisters eyes rolling now saying “Here goes Nas” haha but, honestly when I saw it I was immediately grieved in my heart so much. Not only because it such incorrect depiction of God is truly like but, the saddest part is most people see their lives this way and its so far from the truth. God has never and will never sit back and watch you get pummeled by life through the world and the enemy would like to make you think that. He says “he will never leave us nor forsake us”
“That I hold you by your right hand–I, the LORD your God. And I say to you ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.”
So you see he is ever present in our lives, never leaving, constantly pursuing, trying to get our attention and our hearts if we would for a second take the time to give it to him. However, unfortunately you see so many people today haven’t experienced the presence of God or even worse don’t know him at all. You see SIN SEPERATES US FROM THE PRESENCE OF GOD and when we allow sin in…it takes over our lives. Which causes us to feel pummeled by this life and furthermore feel as if God is just sitting back watching. No the enemy set up the temptation and when you fall for it he then sits backs not only in excitement, not only in pure joy but, HE records it just to play it back to you.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
In Guilt, Fear, Shame and Condemnation so you don’t ever think that God actual cares about you, that you don’t ever think God actually Loves you, that you don’t ever think your good enough For God, that you don’t ever think to come back into Gods Presence Lies, Lies, Lies and we know the enemy is a father of lies. This picture caused me to arouse in righteous passion to set this picture and mentalities straight of my Beloved, My Friend and My God Jesus Christ. He is so tender, so sensitive, so loving, so full of grace and even more mercy because where you continue to sin, there he continues to provide you help to not only let go of this sin but not to go back to it and its called GRACE
But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant.
So please don’t allow ANY sin to get ahold of your life, ask Jesus to help you where you are struggling, and completely turn away from it and he will give you the grace, don’t allow shame or guilt to keep you from him because He loves you desperately and don’t for once believe the lie of the enemy that Our God is spectator. …No, no he is soooo far from that. He goes before you, he is behind you and right beside you, ordering your steps if you would listen and just take his hand…So will let go of Sin and take the Lords hand today. He loves you desperately!! God bless you Come to him he is all that you need!
One thought on “Our God Is Not A Spectator”
beautifully written! That picture though, oh my goodness it was so tragic first of all, then for someone to caption it with the thought that God would watch from the sideline as life pummeled us is so far from truth. He tells us so many times in His word of His love for us, how He shelters us, how He gave His Son Jesus to us for the forgiveness of our sins. No greater Love…Thank you for this wonderful post to share what God is really like.
