I like John Curley. I listen to his radio show pretty much every morning. He is conservative like me, and he has a great sense of humor in my opinion. But he bothered me last week when he said God doesn’t care about some issues. He said, “Leave God out of political debates. Don’t bug God. God doesn’t care about your football game. I wish people wouldn’t bring God into these things.”
Is that true? I guess it would be if God were similar to humans. Then, yeah, considering all the more important things going on in the world, He probably wouldn’t have time for everything. But He’s not human. We know that He operates on a level that we can’t imagine. We know that His power is unfathomable to our human minds. We are unable to comprehend His magnitude, strength, omnipotence, and Love.
When I thought about this, I really wanted to write an email to John, explaining why he is wrong. But I didn’t. As I kept thinking about it, I realized that the most exciting part of challenging John’s comments was that I knew where to find confirmation that I’m right and he’s wrong. neener, neener.
Isn’t is awesome that we have a source to find the answers to all our questions?
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
For example, some say, “babies aren’t born with instruction books.” But really all our instructions are in the Bible. All our answers to everything are there. I felt comforted knowing that the words John spoke were not supported anywhere in the Bible. Nowhere does it say, “don’t bother God with your mundane problems. He only wants to help with significant ones.” No, it says the exact opposite: He knows the number of hairs on your head. Nowhere does it say, “God only cares about some things on our earth. Be considerate of what issues you bring God into.” No, He wants to be interwoven into every big, medium, and tiny detail of our lives. He cares about what we care about.
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28
I am grateful for that. And I am especially grateful that I have a place to go, the Bible, to find out the Truth. Every word of this amazing book is a gift from God to us.
