You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
33 Should it be according to thy mind? he will recompense [shalam] it, whether thou refuse [kiy] [ma'ac], or whether thou choose [bachar]; and not I: therefore speak [dabar] what thou knowest [yada`]. KJV-Interlinear
33 'Shall He recompense on your
terms, because you have rejected it? For
you must choose, and not I; Therefore
declare what you know. NASB
There are only two opinions in the universe - Gods
opinion which is truth, and everything else.
The sin which rejects truth is arrogance. All other departures from truth, all other
sins, cascade down from arrogance.
So, anytime you fail in your spiritual life, arrogance
is always involved. By the way, it
should always be included in your confession list. No extra charge for that tidbit.
God is the sovereign of the universe. God is
omniscient and God is omnipotent. He
knows everything and He is able to do anything.
Since God is all knowing, all powerful and always
truth, then it stands to reason that His will, is the best option in any
situation. That His counsel is the best
counsel available. That His advice, His
guidance, His suggestions cannot be bettered anywhere else, by anybody.
Gods terms for life are designed for your best
interest, and His terms are based on truth, not lies or deceptions.
Man, or you, have not been around very long in this
universe. Man, or you, have not seen the
expanse of the universe either through the telescope or under the
microscope. Man, or you, are severely
limited in knowledge.
Therefore, God follows a policy based on His terms,
which is truth, not yours. And just
because you happen to not like something, just because you disagree with
something, does not make your opinion or your preference, or the convenience
which you desire, right.
When folks disagree with Gods truth, they are just
about 100% wrong. That is pretty close
to being wrong all of the time.
There is no wiggle room around truth.
But God will not decide for you. No other person can decide for you.
Each individual is on their own. Each person makes their own decisions, and
even ignoring or avoiding decisions is really a decision of indifference or
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
