False sense of well-being!
This is a very serious problem!
Usually when a person is suffering so much inside, lives in anxieties, fears, insecurities, looking for a scapegoat, and speaking of the “emotional faith”, their refuge is “doing for God” and begins to occupy herself with things to do, but does not solve the problem that is “inside”. And over time, begins to justify herself by what she does, “Oh … I pray, I participate in the events for young people, I go to church, I invited a person to attend the meeting, I am a faithful tither, I help people. etc. ”
But that pain, that problem, insists on staying inside of you. And time goes by, and for acting in a religious way you begin to be deceived by a sense of well being, for what you do and not for who you are and what you believe in!
My dear, we can only give what we have, and if you hide behind religious habits, you will be frustrated, but if you focus on your soul and never lose sight of the need of salvation, you will always be looking to solve your inner conflicts with God, and not in hiding them from God!
Note the words of the Lord Jesus:
“In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.”
The Lord Jesus was talking to the Pharisees who fulfilled the laws, but their heart was far from Him!
It’s no use trying to prove to people that you are of God, for God knows and sees everything! Be sincere, expose your real condition and cry out for help!
” Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
(James 4: 8)
God gives us the opportunity to start over! So take the opportunity and start to draw close to Him right now, and when He comes before you, you’ll have peace, certainty, strength, courage, and everything will be true in you and in your life!
God bless you all and until next week!
