Tonight, I went to Sara and Julia’s room to just hang out and read the bible. I had decided earlier this week to listen to the bible app while working out, and also start fasting for God, not just for cutting fat. I realized that when you do something for Jesus, you commit yourself to it more. Before, I let myself indulge in food that was bad for me, just because I was cutting for myself, so it was fine if I let myself have it, it is my choice. But now, I am fasting for God, so if I eat something that is bad for me, or indulge in gluttony, I know that I am letting down God. Everything in your life becomes better when you give it to God. Want better grades? Read the bible. Want to be motivated in sports? Pray to God for strength before games and practices. DEPEND ON HIM. He will provide. Not only will He provide, but He will provide the BEST. If someone came up to you and asked if you wanted a life where you are guessing the right way, or if you had an all-knowing, loving person to guide you every step of the way, which would you want? It is simple. Through God, we can have heaven on earth. Who wouldn’t want that? Anyway, while we were talking, a question was brought up about God’s knowledge. Does God really know the future? If so, wouldn’t He know if you go to heaven or hell? And if He knows you are going to hell, why would He create you in the first place? If he truly loves you, He would never create you and know you will suffer eternally before you even choose that, right? Well, we were confused by this until I suggested an answer. I said that maybe God only knows the future you let Him know. Maybe, because of free will, there are an infinite number of paths you can walk, depending on your decisions. If you are walking a righteous path, then God can see the future of that path, and know you are going to heaven. But then if you are walking a sinful path, God sees the end of that path and knows you are going to hell. It is our choice which path we choose, and depending on what path we choose, our destination will change. God can absolutely see the future, but we are the ones who create it. We choose the path, and God guides us by establishing it as we go. So, in summary, God can see the end of every path we could possibly take, which would be an infinite amount, and because God has infinite knowledge, He can do this. Then, when we choose a path, God sees the end of it, and if He does not like it, He guides us to the correct path, the one to Him and heaven. Remember, we have free will, God cannot force us to take the correct path, we choose where we go, but God still guides us, always trying to get us back to Him. That is why if you give your life to Him, and give Him all control, you will never stray from His path, the correct one. After I said this, I said it was just something I had made up, I did not have biblical sources. But then Julia turned to a page in her bible she said she had been reading over and over for the past three days. It was Proverbs 16. It said, “The Lord works out everything to its proper end, even the wicked for a day of disaster.” I believe this means that God will let the path you take have it’s proper end. If you are on a wicked path, then a wicked end will fit it. That is hell. If you are on a good path, then heaven will be its proper end. “Even the wicked for a day of disaster.” God is not just going to swoop in and tell you that even though you were on a wicked path your whole life, He will just change it so you go to heaven anyway. No. He says He works out everything to a proper end. And you can pick that end by picking a path. There’s an infinite number of them, and God knows all of them, and their ends, but because of free will, it’s your choice to pick the one you want to walk.
