We’re each the owners of our own soul and will. It is alone that we reach out to God from the depths of our soul, and alone that we experience his response to us. If our personal experiences with God don’t fit into somebody else’s theology or belief system, firsthand experience wins the debate. Maybe if life were easy, one might trade what God has been to you for the approval of people, but when you’ve suffered you become unwilling to do so. He is who he is, regardless of what anyone argues to the contrary.
Micah 6:8 – He has made it clear to you, mortal man, what is good and what the LORD is requiring from you— To act with justice, to treasure the LORD’s gracious love, and to walk humbly in the company of your God.
