Do We put God to The Test?


We put God to the test when we define right or wrong according to our feelings and convenience. We may move the boundaries of behavior according to our behavior to justify what we are doing. When we understand right and wrong according to what we feel, we are not following God’s law. We are making our own law: We are sinning.

The Divine law was made to guide us on the road to heaven. God made the law so we could be free. Free to receive His blessing of life here and eternal life in eternity. The Divine law is meant to protect and defend human lives.

Human law is just as long as it obeys the Law of God. Human reasoning without God at its center can stir away from divine wisdom and it may lead to inhuman behavior. The deeper in sin a sinner is the harder it is for him to listen to his conscience, and acknowledge his sin.

“You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test.”
Luke 4:12

We are putting God to the test, when a human law justifies murder.

The Law of Men is meant to protect the weak and innocent. When the law of Men justifies killing of the innocent, it can no longer be called just.

Let us call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to guide our reasoning into the way of God so we may see things as they are and not as we would like for them to be.

Let us pray for life of a human being to be sacred from conception to natural death.

Let us pray for God to give us the wisdom to know right from wrong.

Let us pray that we may never put God to the test.

Let us run to the Lord Jesus to find rest from the turbulence of this world.

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28
