Without God humanity is to be most pitted because without Him our ability to live life at the supernatural level He designed is impossible! We are thus relegated to war with flesh, the devil, and human depravity for as long as we live! Father’s design and His heart’s desire for us is a much brighter picture than the one we create for ourselves! Idolatry runs rampant in all its various forms driving, driving, driving without satisfaction. He created us to need Him and only Him. Substitutes need not apply!
I was awake in the night last night and I started to think about how God created us. We have needs in order to survive and flourish. We need oxygen, water, food and love! That is, we need clean air, pure water, healthy food, and pure love in order to prosper and live in health and happiness. What is the air you breathe is polluted? What if the water your drink is contaminated? What if the food you eat is spoiled? What would happen to your health and happiness? What is the love you receive is tainted or isn’t love at all, but only a perversion of the real thing? Our life experience is diminished by the lack of purity in our basic needs being met or unmet if you will. When we live in lack in any area, we suffer. When we live in lack, fear can become a constant and tormenting companion. Life without God is darkness upfront and personal!
If you are on our mailing list, you are probably mature enough in the Lord that you don’t need this article. But there are multitudes of people all around you that do! Perhaps you can consider this another tool for your ministry toolbox to be available when an opportunity presents itself. You don’t have to write it, just print it off and hand it out. That is true of all our articles, newsletters, and eBooks. They are free to be downloaded and printed off and given as gifts of love at any and every opportunity. If you want to be a giver in this way just pray and Holy Spirit will provide the opportunities. You don’t have to debate people or prove anything. Just simply give with love in mind and let Holy Spirit be responsible for the results.
Even if we have walked with God for many moons, there may still be areas in our lives that are without God! Obviously, we should want these areas corrected, don’t you think? Hopefully you’ve not become complacent in your relationship with Him. Hopefully you’re not comfortable with the status quo and resigned and/or retired in your current place in life! There is so much more available to us in God’s supernatural realm that I believe we can’t live long enough to get it all! If necessary, ask God to renew your hunger, your passion, your determination to be a valuable asset to His Kingdom. As His kids we are responsible to represent Him well! We must continually pursue our relationship with Him and make ourselves available to Him to complete our assignments while we are here! I just remembered a saying I heard many years ago as a young Christian that I’ve never forgotten. It goes something like this. “What’s the point of being so Heavenly minded that you are of no earthly good!” A true, intimate and personal relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit will put to rest any and all passivity we might embrace and empower us to fulfill the purpose and destiny Father has designed for each of us! Onward Christian Soldiers!
I am including some one liners that came to mind before I wrote this article. I’m sure you can add some of your own thoughts to the list. This may help people who have not really thought about life without God and what it means!
P. S. Remember, one of the ways Father expresses His love to us is to reveal darkness in all its various forms. It’s one of His love gifts that can empower us to make necessary changes and bring new life experience.
