“Let your love, God, shape my life with salvation, exactly as you promised; then I’ll be able to stand up to mockery because I trusted your Word.” Psalm 119.41,42
This is a warning: Letting God change you from the inside out is dangerous. You have no idea of what is going to happen. Your shape and form will be unpredictable. You cannot make this type of decision with a stranger. You cannot take a leap without some idea of the destination, at least in principle.
This is my experience: God is a rationale God who gives us plenty of facts, if we are looking for them. God is a God who reveals His character to everyone willing to see. God will describe himself to us if we are willing to listen. Making a decision for God does not need to be an act of foolishness, although it will always appear to the world that way. A decision for God is an act of faith based on the belief system you hold. Your belief system is either one of self-construction or faith in what God can and will do, there are no other alternatives.
These are the questions: Do you know the basis for the decisions you made today. If not reflect and examine the events. Did you rely on your own ability to succeed or did you look to God?
Do you have enough, any, information about God and His promises? If yes, is it based on God’s words or someone’s stories? If no, perhaps it is time to dig into God’s Word.
Do you realize what is at stake? Can your abilities to succeed here and in the future, even beyond death? Your soul is at risk. These questions and statements are facts, with no intent to frighten, except, as they are accurate.
This is my God: God loves you and me very much. He reaches out to us giving us grace, wrapping arms of love around us, accepting us unconditionally, and wanting the best for us. God offers us the best, if we trust.
