We live our life guided by various principles as we prefer, reflecting our behaviours and molding our personalities. Our belief plays a vital role on how we see our life and determine our perspective on how good or cruel the world is, whichever viewpoint we want.
It’s not easy to introduce God’s influence in someone’s life. God created us as leaders, and that leadership mentality resists the idea of having someone in authority to rule over him. However, God put in man’s heart a desire to worship, to acknowledge the one supreme being which we casually address as God. Majority of the people believe in God, even the devils do (with trembling)! But how many people acknowledge God in each and every area of their lives? I mean, including Him in their decisions regardless of how major or minute it is? I call it “God factor.”
When you don’t recognize a God factor, you tend to fall in a series of trial and error. You follow your guts, you scream over situations you are in, your action depends on the circumstances around you. Somehow we tend to accept that as fate, come what may.
Here comes the faith. An assurance that you’re not alone, the realization that there’s a God that guides you especially against forces beyond our control (i.e. sickness, your boss’ decision, moment of grief). You may not have instant solution on hand, but God can assure to have you factors enabling you to endure – strength, feeling of being secured, self-esteem, feeling of being loved, to name a few. The mere assurance that you’re not alone on this is a huge relief!
We’re dealing with our own battle(s) each day, and believe me on this: I may endure all hardships without a “God Factor” but my character is being developed and my faith is being deepened thru day-by-day experience with God involved. I will not belittle God in my life, I’ll exalt Him so that in my weakness, His greatness will be made known.
If God is with us, who can be against us?
