Consider Jesus

Why do we consider man as the solution to our problems, the answer to our situation? We admire man’s success and emulate his efforts. But it makes little sense to struggle and yearn, spending maximum effort seeking answers in places where answers can not be found? How is it that we would rather trust our fate to our own efforts or put our trust in man instead of trusting The Almighty Omnipotent God, Creator of Heaven and Earth? Just because man is easier for us to see, he appears more tangible and consequently we choose to rely on him. Unfortunately, our perception betrays us. We cannot correctly see the entire eternal picture. Do you not know that invisible things are everlasting and the things we catch sight of are merely transient? (2 Corinthians 4:18) When we discern clearly, we understand that only God can meet our needs and can do so according to His riches in glory. (Philippians 4:19) Why then would we expectantly search anywhere apart from Him? In Jesus we find all the answers to our needs. It is He who is able to do far more abundantly than we can ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20) If these words be true, we should spend less time looking to man and more time seeking God. “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
