Too Many Experts

by May 8, 2020Devotional2 comments

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.


      And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, could not put the world back together again. 
      They could not give one ounce or real peace or an authentic solution to a worldwide population craving inner assurance during a pandemic. What an absolute display of human inability our world leaders have demonstrated trying to work out a plan of deliverance for a fear-filled world. Our leader’s best proclamations have only instilled more fear and caused shouts of, “The sky is falling, the sky is falling.” 
      The real help will not come from the human gene pool. This is not a criticism of leaders, but only an observation that they cannot do what God can do for humanity. Authentic help will come from the Lord and those who love Him. As long as people put their trust in the human arm per se, their curse will remain. Jer. 17:5 This is what the LORD says: Cursed is the person who trusts in mankind. He makes human flesh his strength, and his heart turns from the LORD. 
      I am not an expert, and that might be a good thing since there are thousands per minute being introduced by the fear-mongering media channels. Obsequious interviews of one so-called expert after another who supposedly knows all that is knowable about a disease that no one accurately knows about. Most of these media made experts simply have an extensive vocabulary to explain a particular segment of medicine that they work in. That does not make them experts. It makes them a person who is skilled at their jobs, but not someone who has all the answers to unanswerable rumours and unknowns. Rom. 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
      I find it incredible that the world population is looking for deliverance from a medical industry that causes more iatrogenic deaths per year in North American than the total deaths of the virus so far. Physician heal thy self! Fix your own broken medical system, and if you accomplish that, you might become an expert. So-called experts on both sides of every argument and theory are only creating confusion and anxiety on a worldwide level. Turn off the news for one week, and seventy-five percent of your problems will disappear.
      I am not questioning the hearts, sincerity, and dedication of the medical front-line workers who are giving their all and deserve our respect for healing the sick the best way they can. It is the one-world, fear-promoting agendas of government, media, and big pharma with their programmed experts that I’m taking time to question the context of their groupthink. Matt. 7:16a So then, you will recognize them by their fruit. Why are we looking for living answers among those who have dead hearts?    
      As believers in Christ, we cannot let this world event define who we are. God is the one who defines who we are through His grace. Our mandate in the Lord is to go into the world and minister the gospel of salvation, healing, and peace, and not the broadcasting of sickness and disease. The word of God tells us not to forsake the gathering of the saints so that we can encourage each other. Heb 10: 24 And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, 25 not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching. God’s word does not say to hide in isolation from the world until they figure out how to heal their mess. 
      We already know that man cannot save himself. Why then would we wait for the world to figure things out when we have the Lord of lords and the King of kings in our hearts. God has already asked us to pray, that God’s healing word for a lost and sick world would manifest. Only Christ can handle a world problem and only those in relationship with Him can effectively minister through Godly understanding what is truly needed. Prov. 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
      No saints, I am not an expert. I am a blood-washed son of the living God. I believe what God says we can do, and who we are in Christ. I will not be defined by a disease that is trending throughout the world. I will not become an agent of fear or bad news since I have been given the good news of Jesus Christ. My heart will stay steadfast in the Lord and I will focus on all that He says I am, and who I can be. There is only one true expert at this time that I can trust because through Him, I can do the hard things with His strength. Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Take your eyes off of the self-publicized experts and turn your eyes upon Jesus.
