We briefly look and understand a tiny edge of God’s infinite wisdom and love for us. As the Scripture states in Job 26:14, NIV, “the whisper we hear from God is a small voice perceived aloud when we take time to read the Word and commune with God in our silent prayer closet.” When we make time for the Father, then we can appreciate the time we have with Him. We are growing every time we listen and wait for the Holy Spirit to speak to us. No wonder we’re confused by the noisy sounds bombarding our spirit and moving upon us daily. The enemy has large fiery arrows thrown at us, and it confuses our routine and stresses the nature of man. Then our faith diminishes. We must rely on friends, family, or professionals to aid us with our dilemmas.
Many folks depend on themselves because they rely on themselves to succeed in the flesh. We think we have the answers, but we don’t. Immediate prayer should happen no matter what the devil is saying in your ear. You must keep on praying and quoting Scripture, and then the devil will flee. You will defeat the devil because he does not want to hear the name of Jesus or constant Scripture and will move on for a while. Now don’t think this annoyance is over because the devil wants your soul and spirit. Satan will do everything in his power to entice you to sin and will return soon, with a vengeance.
People who don’t recognize Jesus as the Son of God express an ambiguous task to fight the fiery arrows which descend upon your life as it spirals out of control. Then individuals wonder why they never succeed in their career purpose. The arrows represent confusion, bickering, hateful acts, lying, stealing, murder, unruly children, non-satisfaction on the job, bullying, unexplained or random acts of violence, etc. In the Kingdom of God, the arrows represent Satan: Galatians 5:22, AMP “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” As a fence-sitting Christian or one seeking God, you must stop and evaluate your life and state, “what is wrong with this picture”?
If you experience constant confusion and abuse, then it’s not God. Just because God allows these things to happen is not His fault. He has to allow the unlawful to sin until the end, when Jesus comes back and claims the earth and His people. The “mere edge of God” is where God Almighty gave us the “free will” to do as we pleased, but with consequences, as it was when Adam and Eve sinned for humankind. The validated sin committed by Adam and Eve when they ate the tree’s forbidden fruit gave Satan permission to become the wicked protagonist of earth, and humankind became shattered.
