Itching Ears

2 Timothy 4:3 - 'For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.'

Many Christians today are seeking the wrong things. We have to see the things of God, the results of God, or feel something from God in order to trust in him. We want our season/destiny/breakthrough/promise/blessing/vision/reward/immediately, rather than daily trusting God and being lead to our destiny by him. Many of us are wanting things from God that only a relationship with him can bring. God is more than a breakthrough or a financial miracle! God is more than an occasion to prosper or an emotional fix! God is a father! He wants to father his people. We can read too many books, watch too many "do it this way" videos, attend too many conferences, and get over-churched to the point to where we only trust in the results and effects of God and not the daily relational walk with him. I'm telling you Saints of God, the enemy is behind this distortion of the Gospel. He wants to bring God to you in the form of things so that you will not seek his face. The children of Israel would get tired of waiting on God, so they would just make their own God! They wanted what they could have immediately! They would give up on the process and try to make swift progress! Sounds familiar? That's where many of us are today! We want a microwave relationship with God and we want to get what we feel we deserve! Funny how when we were first saved, we just wanted to be cleansed and our past erased. But listening to the mega-rich messages has made many of us spiritual pimps! We now want to use God to break us through, or bless us, and not even talk to him on a daily basis! We don't want a father, we want a prostitute! "Please me Lord, gimme my destiny, my season, my inheritance, etc", without knowing his voice, knowing his feelings, turning from sin, or even reading his Word? We don't want to obey him, but we want him to obey us! Stop seeking things from God and seek HIM and things will be added! That's the formula Jesus gave. Stop waking up each day, trying to build your life on some man's formula for success to get things. God gave you the master plan in his Word. You don't need to be purpose driven, you need to be love driven. You don't need a method to find your destiny, all you need is a visitation by the Holy Ghost! Stop seeking what you can see and trust God daily. He will surely lead you to the Kingdom and add the things that he has purposed for you.
