You are a son of Adam, created in the image of God, and a son of the second Adam (Christ), created for good works. The life you are looking for can only be found in God through His Son Jesus Christ. It cannot be found in the daughters of Eve, in money, in power, in experiences, in fame, in possessions, in sex, or in work.
Eve is not the end game. God is. In the Garden of Eden, Adam chose Eve over God. She can easily become the reason we live and do what we do. But she is not. GOD is the end game.
Remember, you are a son of Adam, born again. Remember this. Act like it. Think like it. And act like a man. Don’t act like a woman. Don’t act like an animal. Don’t act like a child. Act like a man.
Accept responsibility. God has put you in charge. Be in charge. Don’t blame others, don’t pretend you don’t know what is going on. Don’t abdicate decisions to others when it is your decision to make. Move towards the conflict and not away from it.
Lead courageously. Leading is what you are to do. With courage is how you are to do it. God has put you in command and you are to lead.
People may not like your decisions. You may not like the outcome of some of the decisions you make. You may not even want to make the decision. But is your job to lead, to lead with courage and to make decisions. Just do it.
The issue isn’t whether God is speaking but whether or not you can hear Him or want to hear Him. Make time for God.
