Mixed Messages

What's the deal with mixed messages? How come the word "wicked" can be "bad" (as in, wicked) or "cool"? Aren't those opposites (or is it just me)? And how is it that "sick" can mean cool or ill? It is obvious that many words have taken on multiple meanings that often mean the exact opposite of their original meaning. Anyone else find it annoying (or maybe you find it wicked - or maybe sick)?

Have you ever wondered if what God says in the Bible has multi meanings? Have you ever really wondered...when God says He loves you, does He really mean He hates you? When He says that He'll always be there for you, does He mean that He'll just leave you like so many other people in your life have? When He says that He understands you and everything you're going through, does that mean that He doesn't get it, just like everybody else? What does it really mean? With so many mixed messages out there, how can we know that GOD'S messages aren't mixed?

The truth is: God doesn't send any mixed messages. And how do I know this? Well, for multiple reasons. One, I trust God, and He has always loved me and never hated me, even though I am a sinful, filthy person. Second, He made promises in the Bible, and He has kept every single one of them to this day.

Those are just two examples of why I believe that God doesn't send mixed messages. The Bible is always true (Who says? God!). The Bible doesn't hold lies. God doesn't lie. He wants to be with you in heaven forever, and He will never, ever leave you. He's not like other people you know - God will never let you down, never leave you alone, never stop loving you. He loves you so much that He died for you. His messages certainly aren't mixed. Trust Him. He knows what He's talking about, He knows who you are (Everything about you, in fact!), and His arms are always open for you. Run to them, knowing you can find peace and rest in God our Savior. Nothing else can truly satisfy you without the one, true God who is telling you a clear message: He loves you - no matter what.

Romans 8:38-39
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isaiah 40:8"The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God stands forever.”
