“Every man and woman walks his own path with God”.
12:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. TODAY
Between 12:00 a.m. today and 12:00 a.m. tomorrow, you will decide whether to involve yourself in another man’s trouble.
God did not design your mind to handle the problems of every single individual or group of persons you see or meet. You are not God! Only God can open His hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing”. He did not give you that responsibility because He has loving compassion for you and because our trouble IS part of every man’s own path with God.
Matthew 25: 1 thru 13 tells us Jesus’ will that we be not harmed by misconceptions about compassion. He counsels of the wise and foolish. They did not intend to be foolish or wise. They were just seeking what they thought was the wise or compassionate thing to do in the moment. Jesus, lovingly, warns us how Satan can use our “good intentions for God” and our compassionate heart that is trying to please God, and use that against us.
Reviewing Matthew 25: 1-13 gives a perfect example of us being distracted from what God has us focused upon (and needs you to remain focused upon) while trying to help individuals crossing your path today or every man in our world.
You must protect your heart and mind from focusing on EVERY MAN’S troubles.
JESUS will never change His focus in the midst of Satan troubling our world.
Invisible evil powers pull on you each day through what you see on the streets, in the media, and hear about from people to feel guilty or to feel pressured to “fix” every man’s needs and the wrongs done in this world. Satan’s intent is to overwhelm your heart and mind, Jesus said:
PEACE comes by attending only upon “the one” person (or persons) that God is holding you accountable for — in the moment.
You will know in THAT moment when God is the one pulling you to involve. He will give you more than one confirmation from Scripture and with events corroborating with Scripture. There will be PEACE with God versus guilt or pressure on your feelings. There will be James 3:11-18 — proven wisdom from God that protects you from ever tempting to look back with doubting and asking yourself “did I do the right thing” (2 Corinthians 13:1, Isaiah8:19).
Only God can solve problems for “every man”. As we walk our own paths, God sends His mercy and compassion to each of us in a critical moment of our troubles (Luke 4:25-30, 10:25-37) because He loves us, sees us, and cares.
May God’s grace and peace come to you through the Lord Jesus Christ as you realize that HE is our path out of every trouble we face — in His time and in His chosen way. You will experience that the Bible Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life for me … for you … and for EVERY man (John 14:6).
