Today’s Thought and Scripture
One who argues with his Creator is in grave danger,
one who is like a mere shard among the other shards on the ground!
The clay should not say to the potter,
“What in the world are you doing?
Your work lacks skill!” Isaiah 45:9 CEV
Anyone who truly knows God, knows that He does not make mistakes .All creation has been crafted skilfully and each part has it’s purpose. Every person was created in His image and shaped that they may bring to Him glory through the gifts He stored in them. Anyone who knows the Lord and His word knows also that He created only 2 genders, male and female.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. Genesis 1:26-27, 31a
More than any other part of God’s creation satan hates man, the jewel of God’s creation. From the beginning he has tried to trip up and turn man away from God and pervert the one who was made in God’s image. We were created without flaw and worshipped and walked with our Creator. Until we disobeyed Him and fell. Now satan has taken that which was created in God’s image and is twisting it into something that is barely recognizable.
We saw this past week all over the the media how they celebrated the transformation of Bruce Jenner into a “woman”. They called him courageous and want to give him the Arthur Ashby award for courage in sports. Let me set them straight, Bruce Jenner is still Bruce Jenner, the one God created. You can change the outside through make-up and photo shop, but you cannot change the fact that Bruce is still a man. Some where along the way Bruce believed a lie and gave into it. Did God make a mistake and create Bruce the wrong way? No and yet in doing what he has done along with the media he is saying that God didn’t know what he was doing in creating Bruce as a man. He put a female spirit in a male body by accident. Really? Psalm 18:30 says God’s ways are perfect.
We also learned this past week that the BC supreme court in Canada is deliberating whether gender should be removed from the certificate at birth and that parents don’t have a right to refer to their child as a boy or a girl. The child should remain gender neutral until the child makes the decision which gender it is.
Sometimes I feel like us Christians are the only sane ones in a madhouse. The world is going crazy. Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s I have seen values change. It is like the example of the frog in the pot where the water has been getting hotter yet the frog does not recognize that it is slowly being boiled to death. So it is with society and change. Things that were once called good are now considered evil and that which was evil is now good. The devil has been masterful at changing things around ever so slowly so that the world barely notices the change and accepts it as normal. The world is dying, but they really like to think they are just being enlightened.
I posted an article from Rush Limbaugh yesterday where he had a radio interview with a man who called in to “out” himself to the world. He declared that he was really a black man born in a white man’s body. It was all done tongue in cheek, but it speaks volumes on how easy it is in today’s society to trick someone into believing you are something you are not. There is even a group of people who label themselves as Transabled. They believe that instead of being born normal they should have been born disabled and have gone as far as to disable themselves or live as a disabled person. Do you see the length the enemy has gone to deceive those who don’t know the truth of God’s word. There is so much I could go into about this, but I will leave it here.
Maybe you are one of those that is thinking you are not whom your really supposed to be. You are saying; God you made a mistake, You forgot my handles, as the passage from Isaiah says above. Listen to what God says about you in the Psalm 139;
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvellous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skilfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.
You were perfect the way you were created. In you God created something beautiful, but that beauty can only be truly unlocked by knowing Him who created you. It’s in knowing Christ you discover who you truly are and what your potential is. Let Him wash away doubts and misconceptions and flood you with the truth of His word and Holy Spirit. Be who the Potter created you to be.
