Nothing On Gods Green Earth
Nothing on God*s green earth will ever satisfy us until we are in a right relationship with the God who created us and everything else and gave us a little of it. When we are unsatisfied the reason is that we are unsatisfied with God and what He has given us. Everything is out of kilter when we are not right with Him. We are all misfits when we are not right with Him no matter who we are or what we possess or what we do. When we are out of harmony with God everything is off key, mixed up and confused. We are like rudderless ships drifting around until we are destroyed. When we are out of fellowship with Him we have goals that go nowhere and accomplish nothing of value. Are you one of God*s people? Has there ever been a time when you realized that He was NOT your God but you wanted Him to be? Has there ever been a time when you asked Him to take charge of you? Do you ask Him every day to take charge of you? Notice in these passages what happens when God is God to people and when they are His people.
