WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME I PRAYED?

when was the last time i prayed? and what is god to me? has he changed
or is he the same? did i lie to myself when i created an image of the
almighty? and almighty indeed. the omnipresent, omniptent, omniscent.
reality or fiction. and now that i reflect the amount of "renovation"
that my idea of god has gone through throughout my life, i'm but
amused.
he was someone whom even my dad feared. he was the idol, the picture
or the numerous objects with which i associated him with. he was
the fearsome person who could alter my exam marks.he was the helpful
waiter who would take down my orders. and when he failed to fulfill my
wishes he was the grumpy old man who hates kids.
well then my description id match with the orthodox view of god  i.e
god changes form. and as was quite apparant to me that god did change
from time to time (mostly when i wantd him to change) and the the new
notion came upto me i.e MY god. My god as against THEIR god. so then i
learnt that my god was very different from their god.so what do i do.
do i challenge the very notion or do i lie with it. but then hasn't
"my" god always been my god. well my god not only against their god
but significantly also against OUR god.
my god is completely my god. he is my angry old man. he is my own
waiter. he is my guide. then is he omnipotent? and remembering that
absolute power corrupts absolutely, is he the whimsical powerful
identity. i call 'identity' as against 'being' because i fail to give
him such a stature. for 'being' brings form and 'form' brings
failings. coming back to omnipotence. do i make him so powerful. so
remaining faithful to my own creation of god, i disagree to agree on
the mere existance of god only on the basis that everyone says so.
i believe in the force that guides but i don't believe in blindly
following this guide...

  1. cornishevangelist says:

    Temptation. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape that ye may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13.

    The meaning of the word temptation in the English dictionary is that temptation is an enticement to do evil. Now, temptations can come to us in many ways, usually when we are at our lowest, when we are discouraged or downcast. Temptation can be evil thoughts of any kind; also they can come in the form of the symptoms of sickness to make us disbelieve that God can get us well again. We have all been there, yes, in unbelief, but we must not believe any other word other than what God has said in the Holy Scriptures.

    Do you remember how Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness, by speaking the Word of God? He said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Don’t forget Jesus was very weak and hungry; He was at His lowest, that is when satan comes to you saying, “it is hopeless, you are finished, it is all over.” My friend the devil is a liar. David the shepherd boy said, “God delivered me from the paw of the lion, and the paw of the bear, surely He will deliver me from this uncircumcised Philistine
    (Goliath).” Surely God will deliver you from your problem, so, shout it out,
    “SURELY GOD WILL DELIVER ME.”
    Jesus said, “Call upon me in the day of trouble and I will deliver you.”

    Now God has provided us a way out of all our problems, if it be temptations of wicked thoughts, or symptoms of some sickness, which the Bible says comes to all mankind, and that way is through faith in His Word, and what Christ has accomplished for us at Calvary.

    The Bible tells us that the great tempter is the devil. Do you remember how he deceived Eve in the garden? Eve said unto the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of tree’s of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it lest you die, and the serpent said unto the woman, “ Ye shall not surely die.” Genesis ch 3: 3, 4. By listening to the serpent instead of God, it brought sin and eventually death.

    So it is with temptation to do evil, the tempter will say, “it is only a small sin, every one else does it,” but the Bible says, “Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?” we must resist all temptations to do evil. And it is the same with the symptoms of some devastating disease that comes upon you, it must be resisted. The devil will bring evil reports to you from the mouths of men, to get you to doubt God’s Word, so that he can kill, steal and destroy your life. Again I say he is a liar, the Bible says “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers us out of them all.” Psalm 34:19 “With long life will I satisfy him. and show him my salvation.” Psalm 91:16. B15

    He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed trusting in the Lord. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely. and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
    Psalm 112:7. Proverbs 1:33.
