God Knows Best!
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
Who better to know how to run things than the One responsible for creating them? Yet; time and time again, generation after generation, mankind has unsuccessfully tried to find another way to live without the Creator’s manual (The Holy Bible) or following His instructions.
No one has ever tried to be proven wrong more than God…..Scientific man has tried all throughout the ages to “copy-cat” God’s creative powers with unproven “theories” of their own. Some “theorists” say man “evolved” from a tadpole…Others say man “evolved” from monkeys…while others say we all came into existence through a “Big Bang” explosion of floating particles…How sadly Foolish…Foolish…Foolish! All of man’s thoughts “excluding” God are foolish!
“Someone” had to create the “tadpole”…someone had to create the “monkey”…and someone had to create the “dust” particles that randomly and mysteriously exploded! However, for those of us who believe in God, we know who created each; and who created ALL!… Simple…Life made simple….Creation made simple…Science made simple…GOD!
As a child, I used to enjoy watching a television program called, “Father Knows Best.” Ah…sweet memories of a more innocent time in television when the “parents” were honored and respected and not told to “eat my shorts” by some hand-sketched kid riding on a skateboard! In today’s modern programs parents are made to look silly, ridiculous, and naive’. Children, especially teens, are the all-knowing, cool ones who have an answer for everything!
No, I’m afraid “Hollywood” has it all wrong…God Knows Best and God has the answer to everything and His answers can be found in His book called the Holy Bible. Last night, I had the blessed honor and privilege of sitting down and talking to one of my grandsons for nearly two hours about life and God. I so enjoyed his sharing with me the insights God has been placing into his life; even as a teenager. I could hear “wisdom” in his voice as he shared his thoughts about life and God. Oh, I know he will be tried and tested as we all are, but his mom and dad have provided him with a good foundation in the Lord. I am a very blessed grandmother to have seven grandchildren all of whom have been carried to church on a weekly basis since their birth…A true blessing from God.
In today’s world, it’s hard on teens and young adults to “stand” against the wiles of the world and proclaim that “God Knows Best! I realize that it’s been hard and difficult in one way or the other for all generations who stand in Faith…But, friend…isn’t it so worth it!! Itsn’t it so worth knowing God the Creator as our personal Lord and Savior through Jesus Christ?! Yes! Yes! And, Yes!!
Today, in the quiet reccesses of your mind you may be searching for answers. You may be in need of assurance and added faith in your life. If so, take the time to seek God; for in doing so you will be going to the right source; the true source; the only source worth finding! God is the answer…God Knows Best!
Remember, God Loves You!
