“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13 NKJV
Rebellion is not Intrinsically Evil, It is not always a bad thing. We were engineered to be incapable of surrendering to anything but perfect love. Because of this we rightfully should rebel against anything that misrepresents God and the love he has for us.
When God’s love is buried underneath the traditions of men, rebellion is necessary. Yet not rebellion for rebellion’s sake, but rather for the sake of reformation so that we can be reconciled to God.
Sadly, many understandingly rebel against false pictures of God imposed upon them, but then they fail to search for the real deal. Many simply continue on in rebellion never turning to consider that perhaps they don’t have to throw the baby out with the bath water. Perhaps God is infinitely better than they were told and he is simply waiting for them to seek and discover him for themselves.
Instead of simply resisting what we know to be wrong, let us search for what is right. The sin of one generation must not be used as a license for the rebellion of the next. We all stand at a vantage point where we can grasp the hand of God and learn from him directly. When we shut out the opinions of men and search for ourselves then and only then will we find the God our heart craves. Allow no one to rob you of this privilege.
Still Seeking His Face,
