Thank you, Father, for always doing the unexpected, keeping us guessing so we never, ever think you are like that pushover God portrayed in most of today’s “fast food churches”. I am so glad that you cannot be tamed and put in a little box like so many people try to do, with their religious prayers and church attendance, thinking if they do the right things they can EARN something from you. AS IF you could ever owe US anything, haha. I am so very, very glad that you require a RELATIONSHIP with each of your people, instead of foolish wasteful doctrines and rules and perfect words and prewritten prayers. You created the NATURAL world… please have mercy on us for messing it up with our foolish doctrines and other ways of trying to make sense of things that can only be discerned with the help of your Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:14 ERV — People who do not have God’s Spirit do not accept the things that come from his Spirit. They think these things are foolish. They cannot understand them, because they can only be understood with the Spirit’s help.
