I remembered when I first accepted Christ, the first couple of years I actually thought my life is going to be just wonderful, like in the movie you know.
Then later I realised there are stages in the walk with God ... and then at one point I actually thought I know a lot of things. Well, I thought I was smart and quick learner.
Then come to another stage I actually realised that there are more then stages in the walk, and there's also ups and downs in every of those stages too! and it's not a good news, because I don't like the feeling of down...
Recently, I smelled the season is changing for me. It's time for a hard landing.
I've been rebellious to the authorities and I was not playing by the rule of the game, I play it by my own rule. I fly the plane my way. Well God does have an "instruction manual" for us, to show us how to fly my plane, safely according to the creator way.
I repented, before the Lord, that I wasn't following carefully on His "instruction manual", then only I realised, that I was not repenting enough through out my walk with God. I couldn't recall when was the last time I was crying before the Lord for forgiveness... I was playing 'stiff neck' with God. Well guess who won ?
So I see the hard landing has come, that we shall be responsible for my own action. Plane crash and we can get hurt badly. But I also believe, that the Lord is always there, ready to forgive us, to save us. Well our plane may crash, work maybe wasted, but our life will be spared.
That's the gospel isn't it ? ;- )
人 在 那 根 基 上 所 建 造 的 工 程 若 存 得 住 ， 他 就 要 得 賞 賜 . 人 的 工 程 若 被 燒 了 ， 他 就 要 受 虧 損 ， 自 己 卻 要 得 救 ； 雖 然 得 救 ， 乃 像 從 火 裡 經 過 的 一 樣 。
歌 林 多 前 書 3:14~15
