When planning a task, look at as many possible outcomes as possible. Look at any possible negative outcomes and develop another plan to handle that situation should it occur. Once you have set a task in motion, do all that you know that you possibly can do to achieverepparttar result that you desire. Pay attention to detail. Look for opportunities that may arise and take advantage ofrepparttar 140764 ones that are most beneficial.

When you have thought your plan through and have done “everything” that “you inwardly” know you can do, then believe thatrepparttar 140765 outcome will happen as you have planned, thank God,repparttar 140766 Universal spirit or whatever you want to call It. Then release your emotions fromrepparttar 140767 outcome and act “as if” your desired result has already occurred.

Never doubtrepparttar 140768 outcome. Never worry ifrepparttar 140769 outcome will meet “your specific parameters.” Ifrepparttar 140770 outcome is not what you desire, you can try again, if you so choose. Pay closer attention torepparttar 140771 details. Learn from what happened and then repeatrepparttar 140772 process mentioned above.

Back to Square One

I could go on to speak ofrepparttar eventual skepticism that came about when it appeared man was not going to saverepparttar 140018 world by knowledge. I could tell you about Immanuel Kant who turned skepticism upside down by denouncing John Locke’s “blank slate” theory ofrepparttar 140019 human mind. Kant saidrepparttar 140020 human mind was not passive but active in generating “causality.” This brought us back to metaphysical concepts thatrepparttar 140021 Enlightenment had worked feverishly to undermine. Kant told us that there is a world beyondrepparttar 140022 natural; therefore, metaphysical concepts such as God,repparttar 140023 soul of man, and freedom really did exist. I’m thankful that Kant brought us back torepparttar 140024 Bible, in a round about way of course. Again, he had his say.

Inrepparttar 140025 nineteenth century, order and symmetry went outrepparttar 140026 window. The age of postmodernism was dawning throughrepparttar 140027 writings of Friedrich Nietzsche—God is dead—and Michel Foucault. These guys were way out there. But we gave them their say.

Then camerepparttar 140028 twentieth century. I believe we’ve come full circle fromrepparttar 140029 power ministry inrepparttar 140030 Acts ofrepparttar 140031 Apostles torepparttar 140032 earth beingrepparttar 140033 center ofrepparttar 140034 universe duringrepparttar 140035 Middle Ages torepparttar 140036 power of human reasoning inrepparttar 140037 Age of Reason torepparttar 140038 “God is dead” ofrepparttar 140039 nineteenth century torepparttar 140040 Existentialism ofrepparttar 140041 twentieth century torepparttar 140042 present day “uncertainties” of Quantum physics. We are back to square one. What is square one?

Inrepparttar 140043 beginning God created…God is Sovereign over all. Just when we think we are pretty smart, having figured outrepparttar 140044 mysteries ofrepparttar 140045 universe, some new thing like Quantum physics comes along and destabilizesrepparttar 140046 importance of man’s role inrepparttar 140047 universe. Man is not as big as he thinks he is. As a matter of fact, it appears that Relativity,repparttar 140048 paradox of light—being waves and particles atrepparttar 140049 same time—is kicking our philosophical rear. I think it’s easier just to admit that I, a mortal man, am in utter dependence onrepparttar 140050 God ofrepparttar 140051 universe. I, a mere man, need God’s help to see me through this maze. And if He has provided redemptive help by sending me His Son, then I would be a fool to ignore Him. God, give me Jesus. And when you are finished with me on this earth, beam me up to where you are.

After all,repparttar 140052 only certainty I have in this uncertain life is Jesus. By Him all things exist.

Keeprepparttar 140053 faith. Stayrepparttar 140054 course. Jesus is coming again to straighten out our mess.
