It’s true. I can’t save you from the toughest time in your life. What a lot of people don’t understand is that usually they look towards people for the answers they want. They sit there, with big sad eyes and just wait for the next words out of my mouth. Honestly, sometimes I wanna say “you suck” but the truth is, I can’t be your Jesus. Just because I follow Christ doesn’t mean I know anything more that you do. All this time you’re investing in others, that precious time could be used in communication with Christ. Yes, God uses us in many ways and I believe He has called us to be comfort to others. However, when people don’t even seek God but just humans, this turns into an issue.
I’ve done it before. I’ve only asked advice from my friends instead of asking God. Sometimes we think that God can’t give us immediate answers, so how about just text my friend right away. That’s just the thing. We begin to transition from only seeking humanly advice without trusting in God for direction and clarity. We’ve got it all in reverse! Us people on earth and not saviors! Ultimately God is the only One who can fix things and direct someones life. What we can do is be there for emotional support, love on people, and let them know we are praying for them. The rest, leave it up to God because if God is for us, who can be against us?
Remember Psalm 118:8 says “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man”.
