Reality or Fantasy?

In the world today there are those who live in reality, and those who live in fantasy. For years I felt I lived in the world of spiritual reality and have seen God do some awesome things, but then!  God threw us in the deep end.

The principle of reality I would like to share actually manifest to me, my religiosity. Buried somewhere within me, teachings I could not even verbalize were challenged by a confrontation situation. We had been working with some folks online. God had been moving awesomely and we were excited. Then there was a face to face and out of me came a religiousness that I was not aware was there. It was ugly because I watched it hurt those I love.

Rebuked and chastened by God, through these folks, I humbled myself, repented, asking forgiveness and have come to this quotation from the Apostle Paul. "1 Corinthians 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know."  This is reality!!

Several times throughout scripture God used the ungodly to openly rebuke the godly, when the godly had gone astray. The key then, becomes the listening for God in whatever is said, and hearing Him through whomsoever He speaks.

People of God it is time to work through our religious notions and hear God. That is reality.
