Finding Fault with God
Romans 9:19-21 (KJB) Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Some people make a career out of arguing and being dissatisfied with God.
“I should have been born a female,” says a gender confused male.
“God does elect some souls to salvation while not others” argues a Calvinist.
“Why would a loving god allow this great storm into my life” argues a faithless hearted person.
What is the common thread in every argument listed above?
Each person has chosen to argue with God about their lot in life, never finding true satisfaction and potential when coupled with the love and mercy freely given of God through the fuel of faith.
It is easy for lost hearts it is easy to find fault with God and to wish for “something better.” In fact, this is the deceptive trick satan used in tempting Eve to eat of the tree of knowledge in getting her to think there was something better waiting for her than what God had given her.
This kind of thinking is spiritually dangerous.
God is the Creator. The divine Potter who has formed each of us and given us the breath of life. He has freely given us love, life, and mercy, and the eternal potential to live in sweet communion with Him forever, not because we deserve it, but because He desires our love and adoration forever.
Yes, God desires that each heart chooses to love and honor Him electing to recognize His authority and power at work in our life and to understand our position has nothing to do with anything of our own merit, for God has given each person a choice of honoring or dishonoring Him. One choice leads to eternal grace while the other only shame and certain death.
