Do you try to be God?

God, faith, allow, trust, seek, wonderHave you tried to force your faith onto someone?  Do you feel that you need to protect God?  Do you push with force as to what people should believe or not?  Do you think that you know who is going to Hell and who is not?  Do you believe that God is not fair?  Do you try to figure out God with your finite thoughts?

The following passage tells of what happened when men came to arrest Jesus. One of His companions tried to take control.

Jesus replied, “Do what you came for, friend.”  Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him.  With that, one of Jesus’ companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.  “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.  Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? Matthew 26:50-53 (NIV)

Jesus reminded His disciples that He could do anything if He just asked God.  He didn’t want to leave God’s will so He allowed the event to occur.

What are you trying to do that is God’s job?  Do you try to do things that are not in His will?  Will you allow God to lead your life?  Are you willing to submit to His authority?
