Don’t Jump to The Wrong Conclusions

Aside

“Follow the evidence to where it leads, even if the conclusion is uncomfortable.” 
― Steven James

Strange how quickly people jump to the wrong conclusions. And how many times they are proven wrong.  Our conclusions are generally arrived at by our own experiences, beliefs, and feelings. Instead of following our own knowledge, understandings and feelings we need to learn to examine all the evidence before we arrive at our conclusions on life’s issues.

God is Watching Us

Status

James 5:9 Brothers and sisters, don’t find fault with one another. If you do, you will be judged. And the Judge is standing at the door!

 We all have faults. None of us is perfect. The Bible tells us anyone who thinks they are only fools themselves. Because we all have faults we should learn to respond to the faults of others with mercy and patience. The same way God responds to ours. We also need to learn when we do start getting judgemental to examine our motives for our feelings.

If we examine our motives and feel that someone really is traveling down the wrong road then we need to judge according to God’s standards, not our own.

God is watching everything we do in our lives and when He needs to He will correct us.

Weakness and Hardships

Status

Check out the mirror to see its reflection. Are you an imposter, pretending to be what you aren’t, or authentic enough to admit who you truly are? The spirit of fear comes hard against love, and when it comes knocking to disrupt your day of being real, let faith open the door. Examine yourself to see if your faith is real or something abstract. The only way to fail this test is to not know Jesus is in you right now. If you fail the test, do something about it! When Jesus’ love is in you, fear has to leave.
Are you willing to examine and take ownership of what’s going on? There’s a different road to travel than the road to self-destruction, medicating the pain of your resentment and regrets. It’s okay to be hopeful!

Can you admit when you’re wrong, or weak, quickly? The disciple Paul delighted in his weakness, hardships, and difficulties. It’s okay to be driven to your knees by troubles; it’s a great place to be.

Lord, I pray to endure whatever comes, for your sake. I pray when battered and bruised, your grace is sufficient to strengthen me. Amen.
