Proverbs 19:3 People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD.
This verse made me think of the phrase “how could you.” More than we realize, people tend to look back on their lives and mistakes and ask God how could He?
How could He let this happen? First off, know that I’m not talking about rape or abuse or cancer. There are many things that go into that bracket that I don’t understand and only God knows how He will truly use it all for His glory in the end.
But this verse is talking about the mistakes that are in our control or the things that happen that we could’ve helped.
Sex is beautiful. A man and woman of God coming together in holy matrimony and having a child is beautiful. But if you are sleeping with someone who isn’t your husband or wife then don’t blame God when the situation goes south.
Don’t blame God for the bad things in this fallen world. And don’t look at your life falling apart and blame it on God’s non-existence. It’s times to realize that it’s just you. Your choices, your mistakes, and its your time to repent.
Disobedience isn’t a God issue, it’s your issue.
