Why God allows my ignorance to persist.

I am often bearing witness of what I know. However never while you hear me say "I think" or "or so it seems to me" then I am speaking of that which I am uncertain.

However, whether I am bearing witness with certainty (that might come from faith,) or uncertainty (always arising from doubt/confusion) ... I do not require you to regard my words any more then whatever amount you are immediately inclined to give them.

If my words fall upon you as light as a feather, then I urge you to give them more consideration. If bum-rush you like a rodeo bull, then I urge you to regard them least of all I have said.

There are many things that I do not understand, and God allows my ignorance to persist. I don't know what those things are. So some of the things that I say will hit you so wrong that you will want to question everything that I have ever said. Just realize that those are the things that I don't know that I am ignorant about ... and God lets me be ignorant about them so that you WILL question me, and ultimately NEVER put your hope in me teaching you all things ... and rather you will find yourself always going to God about them ... and in going to God for answers, all will go well for you.

If I were more practiced in sending you to God, then God may not have to keep me in ignorance so that my offending words were not the main thing that I say that is sending you to Him.

I guess this is the lesson that is before me now ... to learn to acquire no following and to send all to Jesus the Lord.

I appreciate your patience with me, as I am "under construction."
