Often people are tempted to outright blame God for their troubles, misfortunes and negative circumstances. It's interesting that, for most of these people, when things are going well, they won't give God any credit at all. You might even hear them say, "I worked hard for this," or "I decided this," or "I got lucky on this one." But you won't hear them say, "God blessed me," or "God helped me." People say things like, "God could've prevented this or that from happening." My question is "How?" How could He stop or prevent things from happening if we don't listen to Him? Now can you see how important it is to be a doer of the Word and to learn it and put it into practice? Some people learn the Word of God like a history book instead of learning it with a mindset to apply it to our everyday lives. This is one way the Lord can help us everyday. Today, lots of people are figuring out ways to justify why they don't do some part of the Word, instead of just doing it. Then they wonder why things happen the way they do, or why decisions they made just end up in regret. You might get away with ignoring the Word in a particular area for a while, but it won't work for you forever. Today, Christians, or so-called Christians, think they don't have to tithe, serve or even attend church, and we wonder why society is so messed up. Let's get back to learning and become doers of God's Word and not hearers only.
