Amos 1 to 3
I heard the phrase the other day that "she is alright; she is on a voyage of self-discovery". This was supposed to put my mind at rest; actually it had the reverse effect.
Acts 27:9 Much time had been lost, and sailing had already become dangerous because by now it was after the Fast. So Paul warned them, 10 "Men, I can see that our voyage is going to be disastrous and bring great loss to ship and cargo, and to our own lives also." NIV
Just as Paul did, I can see that a voyage of self discovery will only lead to disaster. Whenever we look for self we are missing the point. Our identity is not found within, learning about ourselves may be too much of a shock for us! What we actually need to do is go on a voyage of God discovery. Instead of getting your head up your backside*, get it in the Word.
Ps 145:3 Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! His greatness is beyond discovery! NLT
We need to know what God says about us, about life, and about His kingdom. If you have started a voyage of self-discovery, cash in your ticket and open your bible. Talk to the Captain (Heb 2:10) and do what the Captain says:
Matt 11:29 learn from me NIV
The Word will inform you, open your eyes, you will receive revelation and clarity, understanding and wisdom. Discover Jesus in all His glory and all will become clear.
