God – Contended? 

The world may well have accepted that there is something beyond science. But not every believes that there is only one person in charge of everything. Looking at the movies created everytime, we realise the projection of a mentality that there are several powers beyond man, that are competing among themselves for supremacy. 

If we consume such assumptions, we begin to feel that God is in a similar situation. And that is not true! 

The bible says something very profound about whether or not there is competition or comparison in the realm of the supernatural. Let’s find out from Jesus’ words; 

‘And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.’

MARK 10:18 ESV

In the text above,  we see the use of the word ‘Good’ as a description for who God is. The use of the word good implies that God being the supreme ruler,  has no competitors or legible comparison. 

If God was being compared to other powers,  then He would have been referred to as the best. But because He has no competition around Him and no one is legible enough to contend with Him for His position. 

God is God. There is no tornament that will put His position up for grabs. No election,  no system of rulership can provide room for others to compete with God on anything. 

God created everything. He cannot fight His creation because it wouldn’t be called a fight. He would rather create other beings to fight rebellious ones. 

Because there is no room for the devil to challenge God,  he challenges God’s creation. We are God’s creation. And fortunate to us but unfortunate to the devil, we are dear to His heart than anything. This makes the devil furious and that’s why he keeps trying to get us off the mind of God. 

Over the years he has tried to get us off the mind of God,  but he has never succeeded. This is the reason the Angels asked God,  “who is man,  that you’re so mindful of him”.

Now the devil figured a way to win the battle. If we sinned and God still loves us,  and no amount of dirt he put on us made God stop thinking about us. Then he is now working on getting God off our minds. 

We need to protect our minds,  and fight the good fight of Faith… 

‘Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;’

2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

The devil will do everything to make you think otherwise on God. He will break your marriage,  he will destroy your life,  move you into poverty,  and frustrate everything around you. But remember,  those are not what exactly he wants,  he wants your mind of God.
