Bible Truth Restored

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

TRAINING OURSELVES AGAINST COMPLACENCY
 
It has been said that we do not appreciate some things until we lose them. We recently read of a man who regained his sense of smell after having lost it for some time. It is common to take for granted the fact that we can smell the flowers, see the falling leaves, hear the patter of the rain and fell the chill of the Autumn breeze.
It is only when our eyes begin to dim and our ears cease to hear the chirping of the birds that we come to fully appreciate our God given senses which we had taken so much for granted.

It is this way with our spiritual gifts as well. Years ago a young girl attended a Bible School and was aghast at the matter of fact way the young people took for granted the hope of salvation that God has offered us. She had only just learned these things and their brilliance dazzled her eyes while the others seemed very nonchalant about this wonderful hope.
The teacher explained to her that those who have just come into the light are blinded more by its brightness than those who have become accustomed to it over time.

While this may be true, there is no reason for us to lose our awe and wonder at God's amazing provision, mercy and promises he has given us. We can discipline our carnal minds to know and remember; and most of all live the knowledge that God's mercies are new every morning.

A man complained that he had no shoes until he saw a man who had no feet.

May we not be to the Lord like a bunch of complaining and ungrateful children, when we should be all thankful and overawed by our beautiful Lord!

Psa 4:4  Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah
