IS GOD PLAYING WITH YOU?
No? Yes? I like both the answer because I have been into both the answers. There were times in my life I just can’t get anything about God. I encountered so many things about God’s love yet it takes so many years to completely understand His love. I am not going to tell you the definition of playing as you can Google it in the internet. There were moments when you don’t even want to talk about God, you just feel like God is playing with you, when you see those words or messages saying “God loves you; Jesus loves you; God bless…” you got irritated because you are falling in everything and you question God’s love, am I really loved? How can I say He loves me when I am always sick? There are so many questions we asked ourselves and God. We just think or assumed the things in Bible are just a word and nothing else because those were written thousand years back.
Those of you who know me may come into conclusion that I am a playboy, and I must admit it (but not a rich playboy, okay), yes I do. My love for somebody else is temporal, if I find something which I do not like in them; I would usual keep myself a little further from them. I often send messages to ladies telling them I love them and miss them, which is totally bullshit. There were times I make friends with someone not because I want to be their friend but just to maintain my social status or to get something from it. How fake we humans are, we wake up take several photos and uploads the best one with a caption “wake up like this” and you received thousand likes for that lie. We failed to understand our own stand, and we question God about His love.
The demonstration of love can be found in the book of Romans 5: 7-8 – “It is rare indeed for anyone to die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God proves His love for us in this: while were still sinners, Christ died for us.” The verses clearly tell us that God is not playing with us. His love for us is always genuine. There are so many people in my life I stop contacting, not they hate me but because I couldn’t get what I want from them. How selfish we all are when we think about love. The verses keep me wondering how could someone possibly died for somebody else who don’t even know the person. Read the verses again, it has a power in it. Jesus is so savage that He don’t care who we are; He just died for us anyways so that we could meet Him face to face in heaven. God is totally crazy for us, when the reality is, we should be the one going crazy after Him.
Let us put ourselves in Jesus’ shoes, let’s say, you are going to die for someone who doesn’t care you exists. How stupid and foolish you will be, right? We don’t even want to donate a single penny to someone whom we don’t know, or incase if we know them, we would ask a favor in return. Jesus become stupid, foolish, crazy because He loves us, He doesn’t want anyone to be unsafe. God is not kidding you, He is very serious about your life. God is much more possessive than your two-day old boyfriend. He even counts your hairs; the book of Luke tell us this, Luke 12:7 “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid: you are worth more than many sparrows.” He cares for the smallest to the biggest.
So the answer to the question is ‘no,’ God is not playing with you, instead we are playing with God, sometimes we are good, and sometimes we are bad; our faith goes up and down; our love is always temporal, but the love of the Father is everlasting. John 3:16 my favorite bible verse tells us how loved we are in the eyes of the Lord. All we have to do is just to believe in the finished work of Jesus. Amen!
