Putting Too Much On God

obese
It is important for you to realize that coming to Jesus Christ and receiving the benefits of knowing the Creator of Heaven and Earth and having a relationship with him as close as friends and even closer as a son or daughter that God has work for you. Sometimes we can make the mistake in believing that somehow God is now responsible for everything in our lives when he is the one who commands and we are responsible to listen and obey.

The Lord says fear not for I am with you. Our responsibility is to stop fearing. The Lord says trust in him and do good. Our responsibility is to trust him and do good works. The Lord says honor and your father and mother. Our responsibility is to honor our father and mother. The Lord is not going to do our part. If we are too lazy or uninterested to do our part then we will not receive the rewards he has promised to those who do.

Our employer expects a certain level of work from us that makes us profitable to the company. Our supervisor steps in and guides us through a difficult situations that exceed our level of experience and then expects you to continue working with a higher level of experience. God is the same way. He expects his sons and daughters to take responsibility for their sin. When an attack from Satan exceeds your experience level, then cry out to him.

Don’t expect God to live your life for you. He is not going to do that. He guides, opens and closes doors, but you must crawl, walk, and run through every situation. You must live you life. The more you obey God the more power you have with God. Its called promotion. Do you want more of God? Show him by your works. You cannot become a doctor without going to school. God will help open and close doors, but you must study those books and pass those tests. Don’t expect God to study for you.

You want that cute girl? Don’t expect God to be your wingman. Go over there an campaign. Open your mouth and tell her how you feel.

Putting too much on God is expecting God to do the chores he gave you to do.
