Is it just me, or do people seem to be reinventing God these days? I constantly hear people telling me what “their God” would and wouldn’t do — or what “their God” does and doesn’t want. The scary thing is that much of what I hear is based on conjecture — not on any real knowledge of the Bible. Are you trying to please God based upon what you think He wants, or based on a knowledge of what says He wants in His Word?
“Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your TRUTH. The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.” Daniel 9:13-14 (Emphasis mine)
