God made us, we are His children. Jesus said: can a father give a snake to a child who asks for bread? Earthly father natural feelings are of the same kind as God's. If he knows how to give good gifts, how much more will our heavenly Father provide good things to us. Luke 11:11). Our Father will never cause us to be sick; instead, He heals. He don’t bring storm in our lives; instead, He calms the storm.
This question was asked by one of our youth in the Youth Gathering: If the Holy Spirit is in me, why He let me do the things that are wrong? I am sure there are many of us who also want the answer to this question.
First, we need to remember, we have a free will. God made us with the ability to make equal choices between options, and that, no one can take it from us, regardless. That is why you see, when you tell a child the good thing to do, it does not matter how mean or tough you may be; the choice still remain to them to do it or not.
Second, Jesus said I will send to you a Helper, and He described the role of the Helper : The Helper will teach to bring to remembrance all Jesus said , the Helper will guide in all truth. The Spirit of God is with us, but still, it’s up to us to receive the teaching and to accept the guidance.
The Spirit of God in us does not mean that we can't do something else and that something else may affect the course of our lives. I believe, if we would do all that God sent to us through the Holy Spirit living in us, through His Word in the bible, and through the messages the Pastors preach from the pulpit; we will be much wiser, we will avoid much troubles, and save much headaches.
Life is beautiful, but sometimes our doings gets in the way of our own process.
So before you do, do the math: 1+1=2. And will always be 2. It was like that before you was born and will remain 2 until Jesus Christ come back. So with all of that said…
Before you jump in the pool, look at the depth.
Before you cross the street, notice the color of the light, the stop signs, and the yield sign
Before you speed, consider the speed limit,
Before you smoke, identify yourself to those who are sickly because of smoking,
Before you eat track down if it’s good for you. It may taste good to the mouth, not to the body,
Before you jump to the conclusion, listen,
Before you touch, see if it’s permitted,
Before you take, find out if it’s allowed,
No matter what you want to do or say, No matter where you want to go or who you want to be friends’ with: Before you do, consider.
