Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, Eccl.12:1 a
We have been created by our creator to be decisive and rule, if we refuse to decide our life other people or circumstances will decide it for us. God has decided to let us decide, for me I decide to accept nothing less than His fullness.
Job 22:28 says you will decide a matter and it will be confirmed and light shall shine on your ways.
There are two primary ways of viewing God!
#1–His person revealed through grace and truth in Jesus Christ. Before Jesus no one had ever seen God Moses saw his back parts meaning he saw before the cross because he was the mediator of the law, but as John 1:18 NLT No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God, is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.
That being Jesus who was full of grace and truth simply put if you have not seen God in grace and truth which is how Jesus revealed Him you haven’t seen him at all only his acts or his ways but not Him.
#2– His laws or principles of creation.
The church has better known His person, but the world has better known His laws of creation.
Jesus said: Mt 5:45—That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise onthe evil and onthe good, and sendeth rainonthejust and ontheunjust.
Lu 16:8–And the Lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the childrenofthisworld are in their generation wiser than the childrenof light.
The laws of creation work for everybody they are natural laws, gravity, sowing and reaping, financial laws, physical laws, laws of association, and laws of attraction etc.etc.
The person of redemption (Jesus) is known by grace through faith by the Holy Spirit He writes His laws of redemption in our heart and our mind.
We can know the person of redemption yet ignore the natural laws of creation and wonder why God allows us to suffer or refuses to answer are problem, but often times it is because we violate natural laws that He put in place at creation that work for everybody always.
On the other hand we may know the laws of creation, but still be unfulfilled in our heart because we do not know the person of redemption “Jesus”
May we come to know Him both as creator in natural laws and redeemer in spiritual laws both heaven and earth.
