Be Primitive

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

The ancient world is considered to be primitive and stupid, yet each civilization talks about encounters with the gods. Throughout our own Bible, God came down a walked and talked with Adam, Enoch, Abraham, Moses, etc. As time went on and man became more and more self-sufficient, God’s physical walks and talks with mankind has seemed to cease. We say that we’re more educated and evolved than our ancestors. That we’re better off than they were because of technology, medicine, etc. But are we truly better off?

We gained a lot in the 26 years I’ve been alive. We have phones that we video communicate with people all over the world. We can record ourselves saying something in our room, and it reaches millions of people around the world. We have men and women building AI technology so that cars can drive themselves. There’s been a large leap forward in technology, but there’s also been a large leap backward from God.

The more we, as mankind, become self-sufficient and un-needing of God, the more God willingly leaves us where we are. It’s not that the ancient world was more primitive and ignorant; it’s that the ancient world understood their need for God or some sort of God in their lives. They understood their own morality and their shortcomings, but today we aren’t satisfied with God showing us the way. Today, we want to be our own god. We want to be in complete control. Even in the Church, we don’t want to bow our knee to every single Scripture; it may blatantly say, “Do not do this,” but because we want to do that specific thing, we say that’s not what God really meant or completely call the Bible corrupted and changed throughout the years.

Whenever mankind believes they can be their own gods, is the moment that mankind begins its downhill spiral into self-destruction. Why? Because we’re flawed and make countless mistakes. Our bar of standards constantly changes depending on our mood for the day.

If you want to see God work in your life. If you want to hear God and have Him walk with you, you have to remove all self-sufficient ideas from you and fully live your life hanging on every word from the LORD. Then and only then will God begin to truly reveal Himself to you as He did to the ancient world.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Primitive.
