Real help comes from GOD. Your blessing clothes your people! (Psalm 3:8)
But, what is the benefit of ‘Real’ - or, maybe, I should rather phrase this as why is the counterfeit so bad?
Well, this isn't just about buying a false handbag or watch. Each time you spend your hard-earned money on a counterfeit item, a legitimate company loses revenue. This translates to lost profits and the loss of jobs over time, which actually equates to all of us paying even more tax! Moreover, you work hard for your money and by buying from reputable sources, you help guarantee that you get what you paid for.
For example, falsified and substandard drugs may contain toxic doses of dangerous ingredients and cause mass poisoning. Poor-quality medicines compromise the treatment of chronic and infectious diseases, causing disease progression, drug resistance, and death.
GOD's Word often warns us about the 'false'... "My dear friends, don’t believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you. Not everyone who talks about God comes from God. There are a lot of lying preachers loose in the world. Here’s how you test for the genuine Spirit of God. Everyone who confesses openly his faith in Jesus Christ—the Son of God, who came as an actual flesh-and-blood person—comes from God and belongs to God. And everyone who refuses to confess faith in Jesus has nothing in common with God. This is the spirit of antichrist that you heard was coming. Well, here it is, sooner than we thought! (1John 4:1)
Bottom line - Without the Spirit of Jesus, we just can’t tell what’s real!
In fact, without His Spirit, we can’t even recognise the real difference between a good idea and a GOD idea!
One thing is for sure – we all need help at some point or another, and I’d much rather get it from Father GOD (and then be clothed with His Protective Blessing) than go it alone.
