We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

# 89 The Law that Protects Happiness

By Arla, Aug 30 2019 01:00AM

The religious leaders are mistaken; to them it sounds like Jesus is destroying their law.


They hear him say, "I haven't come to destroy law but to fulfill it..." but they don't get that they have muddied obedience. He's merely clearing away the trash they've piled on top of the law's principles.


God gave his law to shield humans from the results of living what comes naturally--broken relationships, broken health, broken dreams and finally death.


God wants us to be happy! Obeying Him brings happiness naturally. The song of the angels at Jesus' birth, "Glory to God, and good will toward men..."* proclaimed the two principles of God's law: love God, love yourself and others.


His law is His thoughts of love, and when embraced become our desires, keeping us from ruining our lives.


They were explained at Sinai to protect the people from themselves, each other, and separating from God. No one who hates God's ways can live with Him. Broken humans are only right if they maintain a connection with God, otherwise fear or entitlement contaminates their obedience.


So after sharing God's love for them, Jesus says, "Be careful how you see... your thoughts fill you with light or darkness."


Your perception creates your interpretation of law. Your thoughts create your reality. They turn into your beliefs affecting your choices and actions.**


God's law is love, it protects your life, your future, your happiness, and your choices.


The law of sin and death--entropy--is the law Jesus died to destroy, not God's. His law ordered a perfect universe.***


Matthew 5: 17-6:24, *Luke 2:14 **Matthew 6:21-24, ***Romans 7:21-8:4, Hebrews 2:14
