There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death – Proverbs 14:12.
Naturally, as human beings, we always want to do things the way we think they ought to be. Our good is not God’s best. No matter how good we think we are if it is not God’s good therefore it is all in vain. God’s ways of doing things are far beyond our ways of doing things (Isaiah 55:8-9).
We would be wise if we followed and did what God says in His word – as it is (Psalm 119:9). Let’s think about it my friend, basically me and you are put here on earth by God and He has His plans for us. He is our Master and He knows better (Job 23:10-12). He gave us the Word to be our manual. What are we doing trying to do things our own way? We actually know nothing except that which God has given us in His word. Without His wisdom hidden in the Word we are just fooling ourselves.
Until we do that which God has given us to do in His Word, we can just forget about prosperity. We can forget about the good life He has promised. In the Word we are told to be one, but that is not what we do (John 17:21). It is said we should love one another, and not hate (1 Peter 3:8). It is said do not neglect meeting together (Hebrews 10:25). No, instead we want to watch a preaching on TV and give a million reasons for not going to the house of God. Let us not think we are wiser than God. His way is always the way.
