Wise In My Own Eyes

What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever.  Isaiah 5:21 (NLT)

Just about the time I think I have it all figured out, that is about the time it all falls apart.  You ever think about how foolish we are?  We think to ourselves that this is just a little sin.  It isn't such a big deal.  I can handle it.  Before we know it, that sin has swallowed us up.  It has completely taken over our life.  Sometimes, I hear people say God couldn't ....I doesn't matter what follows that statement.  It is not going to end well.  For there to be any legitimate rules, then there has to be am objective rule maker.  If rules are relative, then you can never really be wrong.  There is a rule maker.  The fact that we think we know better than him is ridiculous.  That is the first lie.  Since the fall, Satan has been telling generation after generation that God is not quite as good as he says he is.  Think about it.  When you say God doesn't know my situation.  I know that is what he says, but not in my case.  When we make statements like that we are saying that God is holding out on us.  We are saying that God doesn't have our best in mind when he sets boundaries.  That is just silly.  If God sent his own Son, then why would he keep anything else from us?  I truly believe when God tells us not to do something, it is to prevent us from some type of harm.  It is for our own good.  Besides that, who are we?  He is the creator.  He has given us his breath of life.  If he says we can't wear red on Tuesday, then he has that right.  He has laid the foundations of the universe.  He created my mind.  How could I honestly think my fallen mind could ever possess the ability to understand its creator?  It is just absurd.  Who truly belongs on the throne?  God or me?  Who gets to decide the rules of this life?  I need to trust God's love for me, and obey his commandments.  God has my best in mind, even when I don't.
