In my life of constant weakness amd struggles, against hardships, temptations and the test of character, may God again help me to endure.
I may not completely know the plans of the Lord, but I am resting on Him.
Will I teach again?
Will I pursue my teaching career? Only God knows.
Isaiah 55:8 (KJV) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
The ways of the Lord, His plans and wisdom, are hard to comprehend. Much more, waiting proves to be a real challenge. Waiting tests our endurance, the depth of our character, and maybe the most of all, our faithfulness. Often when we do not understand God, or cannot anymore wait on Him, we start to choose our own ways and thinking. Often, this results in sinning.
It is always best to wait upon the Lord, fit wisdom and strength.
Psalms 27:14 (KJV) Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Psychology. A subject that has so many principles and beliefs and claims and theories that are unbiblical and contrary to the teachings of Christ and the Apostles.
Well, this morning, in our first General Psychology class for the semester, our competent teacher asked us about a particular person that has popularised the word “adaptation.” I literally answered, “Sir maybe one of them was Charles Darwin, by his natural selection theory.”
The professor gave a big Yes. However, at his second question, which deals more about natural selection and how adaptation relates to it, I didn’t answer and let someone else do. I was hesitant, and at the same time avoiding the spirit of competition grow in my heart. I was hesitant because in my heart if I continue to tell ‘theories’ regarding evolution, then maybe subtly I am becoming Darwin’s proponent by allowing others to wonder at his great unproven hoax.
This is real life. I am a Christian living in an unbelieving world which blindly supports theories that are in direct opposition with biblical truths. These fallacies are required to be tackled and ‘believed’ in the classroom. Evolution and Psychology, I am not a big fan of them. Though yes, some of psychology isn’t harmful to the Christian faith and maybe even submit to it, but generally, it is still a man-made philosophy. I would rather go with the idea of Intelligent Design, which supports the Law of Creation as found in the first chapters of Genesis in the Bible.
May God empower me, give me strength and wisdom that I may not compromise my faith – at all cost.
