It’s easy to blame ourselves when a loved one or dear friend goes astray. Especially when this person is heavily linked to us. We often feel sorry for them and make excuses for their errors. It’s challenging, disheartening and it can be chaotic. Even through the midst of the storm, it’s encouraging to know God is there every step of the way.
He’s there holding your hand, listening to every prayer. He hears every loud or soft cry. He’s concerned. He cares. It’s easy to think we are alone in dark times. It’s easy to blame God for the distress or heartache you’re experiencing. When in reality He has nothing to do it that. People have their own will.
That’s why putting confidence in the flesh is not worth it. People will hurt you. They’ll make mistakes because they are mere humans. Put NO-ONE on a pedestal, they don’t deserve to be. Only God should be on the throne. When you put the right person on the throne, the right things will start happening in your life.
Of course you need people and friends in your life, but don’t let them replace Christ. Stop being dependent on some human. They don’t deserve that credit. It’s all about Jesus! No-one deserves His adoration.
