There is a national fast-food chain that tells us “you can have it your way”. The problem is, what if your way is not working? Society right now is pushing overtime to persuade people to demand life their way. Eat your way, worship your way, have relationships your way, get all the stuff your way. Spend the money your way, and as long as you get what you think you want.
As a global community, we have bought into making an idol out of our way, and it's complete chaos. You don’t have to be a social engineering expert to see that this is basically hell on wheels. Pretending to be god, and making a god out of your preferences, doesn’t make it a reality. God, the Creator of the universe, is still God, and you having it your way does not come close to replacing His Way.
Personal preference and opinion are on full display as an arrogant, self-entitled, ego-driven mini-god stamping its feet just like an undisciplined 5-year-old wanting its own way. We should be completely ashamed and yet in our ignorance of God’s good plan, we’re defiant and impetuous.
Why am I here on earth? Why was I born?. If we try to find answers by looking inside ourselves, or studying the libraries of human thinking, we’re doing nothing more than creating intellectual feedback. It’s a loop that may stimulate volume but not the sound of life. Rather than hearing precious wisdom, we just continually generate a droning, irritating sonic wave of self-indulgent stupidity.
Psalm 53:1 says……”.Denial only self-imposes blindness to Truth.“
To answer the big questions of life you must always go to the source. If you want to know how to work your slow cooker you go to the source - the manufacturer. There’s a manual that gives you the way to operate that device with optimum results, safely, and for long life of the product. The Bible says God the Creator made mankind in His image to “have dominion over the works of His hands.” (Psalm 8:6). Our nagging desire to be god is not so far removed from God’s absolute Truth. The problem arises when we pursue that desire independent of His absolute Truth.
Religion and genetics have highjacked the narrative, robbing people of the true knowledge of God’s goodwill for them. Jesus the King came to earth as man so He could restore every one of us to His Kingdom. It’s kind of like the founder of Burger King inserted himself into the basic operation of each store and said, “Guys! You’re failing because you’re advertising Big Macs and McChicken sandwiches. We’re a different kingdom. We sell Whoppers not Big Macs!” Can you just imagine walking into a Burger King and giving a McDonald’s order? Well that’s what humanity is doing ordering the kingdom of darkness way standing in the middle of God’s creation. That’s the way to loose.
Jesus said this in Matthew 6:33 “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” In other words, if you want your desire filled, align your pursuit with the right kingdom ... God’s Kingdom! Jesus came preaching the Good News of God’s Kingdom. If your tired of having your way and the futility of failed order, then get in line with King Jesus and pursue His way, the Kingdom Way. Your life will never be the same because the King never fails.
Pray the Word:
Jesus, I now seek first the Kingdom of God., My desire is to be aligned with Your order standing in Your Kingdom. I don’t want my will to be done, but God Your will be done in my life. Praise You King Jesus for making all good things possible here on earth, according to your good Way and Will with the riches of Your glory. Amen.
