Ah man, God is good. God's ways are so not our ways or the ways of the world or our society or how things are done. God's ways, God's Truth is so far beyond what we can see.
When we start opening ourselves up to being taught by God to live His way, we might find ourselves questioning how things are done in many areas of life.
God isn't into irresponsibility or into taking advantage of others or being society slugs. But He isn't into taking advantage of others or greed or taking all we can get either.
His way is better. His way is far more creative and loving and generous than we can ever see in this world.
So many rules that we think are the way it's supposed to be aren't God's way. Everything belongs to God. Everything. His way is Supreme.
So, if you find yourself up against a wall and you feel like giving up, don't. God has a way of conquering everything in this world. God has a way you might not even be able to imagine in your human mind about how to win in a situation. Know this: He won't use people. He won't use greed. He won't use selfishness or anything contrary to who He is.
What is God? Check out 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. This is God: patient, kind, not jealous; He "does not brag" and "is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; . . . does not seek (His) own (agenda), is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; (God) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (God) never fails."
Hawken and I are reading a book called Warped Passages: unraveling the mysteries of the universe's hidden dimension by Physicist Lisa Randall.
It is great (and we've just read the introduction). She writes, "Inconsistencies in existing theories tell us they can't be the final word."
Now, think about that statement in relation to God. If God and how He is interacting with you appears to contradict the above mentioned characteristics of God, then dig deeper. You are just seeing the surface and not seeing all of God yet. God is always good, always loving, always incredible. If He doesn't appear that way to you right now, than talk to Him, ask Him to see His love. For it's there. He's there with you all the time.
