I know better!
I could not be so careless!
I am far too smart than to fall for that!
We should all be careful. The word of the Lord warns many times just what we all too often will overlook. The crack in the door allowing deception into our hearts and minds is far too often, ourselves. (This was my opinion.)
Are you at the end of the road? Have you tried everything? Are you desperate? There is still hope. Look to the only One who can save you. The only Hope any of us truly has. You cannot have done too much. He loves you child. We are all His children and His arms are open and He is simply waiting on you. Cry out to Him. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Ask Him to forgive you. You may be super smart but, even that cannot save you or give you the joy of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 3:18-23
Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future —all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.
Leave it to Jesus to reverse the roles of the wise and the foolish. Paul’s message to the Corinthian church offers a charge of confidence and power (vs. 21-23). Jesus prayed for us and said, “I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me”. (John 17:20b-21) All belongs to Jesus, and it is Him doing the work in all and through all for His glory. Become a fool for Jesus Christ. Empty yourself, that He may fill you up!
