Life Lessons

According to sources

faith3

Overheard today, “I knew better than the Doctor did, because I had googled it…”

It did make me laugh. But there is some truth in this statement. We all have our sources – our experts that we turn to for advice. People and organisations that we put our trust in – from Health Experts, to Educators to Politicians, google even! In fact, one way that the Medical Sector gauge the length and severity of the flu season is by how many searches are done for flu symptoms and remedies on google!

“The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.” (Proverbs 12:15)

It’s good to seek advice, to do research. The best counsel comes from God though! He’s the ultimate source to listen to and turn to. The experts may determine the condition of your health, the Bank may state the facts of your bank balance. But the facts are temporal and truth is eternal. You don’t have to deny a fact, just realise that it is a fact and operate in the truth and eternal realm. Benny Hinn once said “faith doesn’t ignore the facts, faith ignores the power of the facts.”

“Faith is trusting what the eye can’t see. Eyes see the prowling lion. Faith sees Daniel’s angel. Eyes see storms. Faith sees Noah’s rainbow. Your eyes see your faults. Your faith sees your Saviour. Your eyes see your guilt. Your faith sees his blood.” (Max Lucado)

  1. Amen! The best advice always comes from the Lord. We need to make it a habit to turn to Him first, then turn to others. Be blessed today and find a way to bless someone else.

  2. Pertinent topic and well put. Ultimately, what will we believe, our experience or the Maker of heaven and earth? Will we trust our feelings or trust Him?
    Faith is believing when everything around us is saying it’s not true.

  3. One statement is enough for a mature and evolved spirit to understand the immortal importance of a sentence, of a written line, due to its indestructible invaluable content that teaches how the spirit should act to develop the inner God, or to turn into Spirit and Truth, or to realise in it the teachings of the Bible – YOU ARE GODS.
    There are people who devour books, searching for religions, sects and banners, listening to the incarnate and the discarnate, but they do not change inwardly and do not really blossom… They are like mediocrity that goes around the PERFECTION, without ever reaching it…
    The Exemplary Word warned these people, by saying: “The Kingdom of God is inside each one, it does not come with external signs.”
    Therefore, those who do not know how to LOOK FOR THEMSELVES, and have not FOUND THEIMSELVES yet, will have to search high and low, hovering unhappily, in the kingdom of emptiness and painful doubts.
    An old initiatic saying teaches: “The good disciple awaits doing good.”
    The Exemplary Word also taught: “Upon your patience you shall build your souls.”
    These abstracts say to the immature, to those empty spirits: “Learn how to run to your inner self, because it is there that God has placed His Divine Virtues, which, when blossomed, will make you a TOTAL ONE, GOD IN GOD, BECAUSE NO ONE WILL BE CHILD OF GOD ETERNALLY.”
    However, let us remember these wise words: “One word to those who understand it is worth a whole speech to those who do not understand it.”

    All the best. With love, Neil.
