Don’t Master Understanding!

This hit me like a ton of bricks this morning. It’s in our genetic DNA to believe that if we understand the ‘why’, this will bring us peace. WRONG! Earthly understanding will never gives us spiritual peace because the relief is short-lived. We all possess an insatiable appetite for trying to figure things out in order to inadvertently gain mastery over our lives. However, the goal of every Christian is not attain mastery rather it is to seek our Master. Solomon succumbed to the will of his wives due to the illusion of mastery. This is why he wrote Proverbs 3:5-6; “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean NOT on your own understandings….” God’s peace is not elusive nor is hidden at the center of some complicated maze. Romans 5:1 says we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. So don’t get caught up trying to be your own master, trust God with every thing and as Charles F. Stanley says, “Leave the consequences to Him.”
