Definitions - Trusting in Our Own Way is A Delusion
Hosea 10:13. You can define delusions from a Christian perspective in that we trust ourselves more than our Creator and His Word, the Bible. How can we say we know better than God what we should do in our lives and not be delusional?
There is more than ample evidence that there is a God that created this universe. If there is a God that created us, then it follows that He has a purpose for our lives. It is only common sense that if someone, in this case God, creates something (or someone), then they had a purpose in creating the thing that they created. It is clear that God, our creator, has a purpose for His creation, His creature. We only choose to continue in our own purposes because of our sin nature to be disobedient to God. We pursue the fulfillment of our flesh over the fulfillment of our spirit man.
Many of us are in rebellion with God and do not know it. Following our own way and not trusting God is the greatest delusion that has befallen man. Because of this delusion, we reap the terrible consequences of sin and remain separated from God, (Hosea 10:13, “Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men”).
HOSEA 10 BIBLE SCRIPTURE: Hosea 10:13, “Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.”
