God’s Way vs. the Ways of the World

God’s way works in the face of what the Adversary does in the world. Things work out when they are done God’s way. This teaching looks at a couple of examples of people getting delivered God’s way juxtaposed with a believer who tried to do things his own way. The believers in Acts didn’t make contingency plans if things didn’t work out the way they expected when they carried out God’s business. We sometimes shrink from believing for much smaller circumstances than what Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego faced. The Adversary has been luring people with comfort and “more” since the Garden of Eden. In the Old Testament, Gehazi had seen God do miracles time and time again yet he still tried to meet his own needs. We’ve also seen the impossible done by God. God is able to care for us, so we do not need to do things the world’s way. We are not defined by the riches of this world, and we should not be easily tricked. We are fully equipped by God. Let’s believe and renew our mind to doing God’s work, not men’s work.
