No Gimmick, techniques or quickfixes

But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, from beside the incense altar. 2 Chronicles 26:16 & 19

When you think about this situation, it is a bit like a child not wanting a shower but rather decides to mask the awful smell of unwashed body by wearing the parent’s expensive perfume. Techniques can only work for so long.

Uzziah must have ventured far from God at this time; his arrogant response to the priest is a proof. When you are far from God, the thing to do is return home. What we do sometimes is hide away and send Him a postcard or a gift in the post. In spite of the sweet fragrance of the incense, God can still smell the rottenness of the sinful flesh under the elaborate garment.

This goes for relationship with God as with human, gimmicks, techniques and quick fixes won’t solve a bad attitude or lack of integrity. It takes time to build character or repair a bad relationship and sometimes, it even takes longer with humans than it takes with God. God is all knowing you see, men are not. Stephen Covey said you can’t talk yourself out of a problem you behaved yourself into. Sometimes, the hard way is the only way.

Receive the grace for strength of character, the boldness to walk out of darkness into light in Jesus’ name.

No techniques and gimmicks, the perfect way to find the great objectives and transgressed situations always. You can find here more postcard services and updating the relationships and more character topics.
