“Why is your intelligence outsourced when you can easily ask God for the inspiration and location of good information yourself?” ~ Jon Barnes
It is fun to ask questions of the Author and finisher of our Faith. When you truly believe that God is, your actions speak for your thoughts, words, good works, and heart. There is nowhere to hide from God or yourself because all that you do is in the open. Yeah, we are all transparent to God and the clothing of your personality cannot cover up your motives of good or evil.
Since we were created and fashioned by The Great Designer God, in His likeness and Image, our inspiration, love, and intelligence should reflect this. You will never see a person with 3 eyes, 3 noses, and 3 lips. This is not what God looks like and you cannot change that fact. Your design, image, fashion, and fate are sealed. Fashion yourself after God’s love and looks!
Our patterns have been defined and fixed from the beginning of time and we should become more inspired to learn more about our Creator, His Designs, and Pattern in His World. You can see the vast designs, shapes, depths, similarities, and differences in all of creation, as you travel around the world, enjoying God’s Artistic Masterpieces. Continue to develop yourself as a masterpiece from God.
Did you know that you are an Original Masterpiece from God to love, develop, and reflect the light of God’s lifestyle or did you outsource your gift into sin, slavery, and wicked behavior?
