Don't Circum to Complacency

2 Timothy 4:3-4 ESV

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

*As humans, we often utilize the experience we have gained in the world to justify our behaviors or situations. We except the myths of the world as being the truth, and we accept that there is no other way other than what we have learned through life's experiences. However, when you are saved there is ALWAYS a new way that God is trying to show you...One that is specifically tailored for you in order to bring you all you need and more, but you must trust Him. It's not about what you have been through or what you are currently involved in that may not be of God. The real question is whether you are willing to let it all go to become closer to Him. The closer you are to Him, the clearer you will be able to see ways around or towards what you desire. He is also not asking us to be perfect in establishing a relationship with Him...What He is asking is that we open our hearts and minds, and be honest about our lifestyles and what we need to do to follow Him. The only reason why we may feel complacent, in a rut, or circum to the sayings and beliefs of this world is bc we have not fully tried God...We may also desire to justify our behavior bc that's all we know, but there is so much more if you let go of what you know to gain more of what He can show you if you are willing to act on what your spirit believes...
