This would have been blasphemy to me at one time, I didn’t see the difference between faithful and faith-filled. My logic and the logic I’d hear from others regarding decisions or beliefs (being “faithful” to God) went like this, “That’s why God gave us brains. Think it through–be logical–He’ll help us if things don’t work out,” or “What are the pros and cons?” Mind you, it’s not that anyone wanted to be unfaithful or unfaith-filled, quite the contrary. Nobody, me especially, wanted to make Jesus look bad or be perceived as wishy-washy regarding doctrine, or allow us to go through struggles, or, or, or. In reality, all decisions were based on logic and not faith–especially when it came to beliefs–God forbid if my beliefs were challenged. I had the truth!!!
But God says that mans wisdom is foolishness to Him. Hummm, that pretty much blows all that logic and brain stuff out the window than doesn’t it!?
So we’re left with this–live illogically–ride the correct steed!
