What Flavor Is Your God?

How much God do you want?
What kind of God do you want?
What flavor would you like today... robust red or watered down vanilla?
Is the choice yours?
Is there more than one to pick from?

"Many people begin coming to God once they stop being religious, because there is only one master of the human heart - Jesus Christ, not religion."
Oswald Chambers - My Utmost For His Highest

And when we have seen Him, we have responsibility...  to seek Him, His word. To find truth. To respond in truth, refusing to water down or muddy the waters for someone else. 
To be honest when we see His truth, knowing that God will provide eyes to see, for those who truly seek Him.
To obey.

We cannot add to or take away from His word. 
It is as relevant today as when it was written.
 The Good Life Book I call it. The way is clear, not difficult... but we are a hard headed, stubborn people and we want our own way.

We prefer to choose...
and we fail to see who leads the way.
Not the God of Light, but of darkness...
the god of watered down, weakness, lies...
and he smiles at the evil he brings...  and man calls good.

How can we be sure we have chosen the true flavor of God?
Seek His word.
Stop being religious.
You will never know who He is and what He wants for you if you don't seek His Word.
Instead of deciding what is right and wrong,
instead of making the religion of.... insert your name, issue, whatever your deal is.... here. 

Seek His Truth.
Sorry, there is only one truth, and it's not mine and it's not yours.
It's HIS.

We find Truth through clear, unshaded eyes.
That is freedom. That is the robust, real God who lives.

Don't confuse religion with God, the Father, our Deliverer, Protector, our Rock and Redeemer. 
our Shield, Warrior, Master.
Lover of my soul... and your soul.

What flavor is your God?

John 3:19-21
19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
