*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
Isaiah 45:9 *Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
1 Cor 10:22 *Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?*
People who say there is no God provoke God to jealousy. Whichever they choose to worship along with idolaters. God said *".....they have provoked me to anger with their vanities:...."*, Deut 32:21.
God is a jealous God and He can be angry, Exd 34:14.
Today, we will look further at reasons that could help atheists to desist from rejecting the existence of God.
We will mention one today.
God has made it clear that He dwells in a light that no man can ever approach. 1 Tim 6:16 says *Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.*
So, no man can hope to know or try to find out or want to access His presence.
God had said *"......there shall no man see me, and live."*, Exd 33:20. So He has chosen to be Himself, dwelling in perfect existence independent from all His creations so that his creations may live.
John 1:18 tells us that no one has ever seen God but only through Jesus, who Himself is God, has God been revealed to us.
Given the above, we can see why those who went in search of God will never see Him or know the location He dwells.
If anyone ever claimed to see God, he/she will never live to say he/she did.
This is why, in the scripture, God is represented by the appearance of the three men that appeared to Abraham in his tent. They were Heavenly, Gen 18.
Saul saw the presence of Christ through a *"....light from heaven:.."* that blinded him, Acts 9:3-9.
People who say there is no God went in search for God and His dwelling place.
They could neither find His dwelling place nor see Him, so they concluded there is no God.
Those who say there is no God must know they are not the first to say so.
What they said in time past and what they still say today has not changed the existence and immortality of God.
God remains powerful as ever.
Your life as an atheist is for a moment which will soon fade away.
You can obtain mercy!
Rom 11:30-32 *For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:*
*Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.*
*For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.*
Paul says no one can search out God. His sinister exploits before conversion showed he did not believe in the existence of God but he later got converted, Gal 1:13-16.
*Call to Word action.*
Rom 11:33 *O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
We are God's witnesses. We have the mind of Christ. Let your light shine among unbelievers or rejecters of God.
Rom 11:34 *For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?*
Lord, let my light shine. Let it convert the unbelievers and rejecters of Christ, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
