[Stupid] is a rather derogatory term that is often used to make fun of what is considered to be foolish behavior and thinking in impolite circles. To use it in a sentence and provide some context: someone with more crass than class might say in response, “No sh**, Sherlock—even stupid people know that!"
What is not so well known is that the word is actually referring to being in a state of mind similar to a stupor, which is where awareness and comprehension of circumstances is essentially non-existent.
Be assured that there are a lot of stupid people when it comes to recognizing our Heavenly Father’s active participation in our daily lives. For aside from things happening (both bad and good) each and every day that defies natural logic, all of us have (or at least have had) thoughts containing information that has led to ideas that could not have possibly been the product of personal experience and what is generally considered to be natural intelligence and yet, far too many keep going about their business without a clue.
If you are having hard time with that, just take a good hard look at the word commonly used to refer to the natural ability to know and understand things: IN-TELL-igence. Could this not be actually referring to being told from within?
No, none of this is meant to be as insulting as it sounds. For much of the blame for all of the stupidity rests upon what has been so widely taught in our Heavenly Father’s name for far too long. For instead of encouraging us to want to believe that He truly is actually with us, far too many have been led to believe that our Heavenly Father is (at best) merely looking down upon us from Heaven.
Making that even worse is what has been taught about our Heavenly Father being an angry God, who looks down from His throne to see if any of us are living righteous lives in accordance to the instructions given in His Holy Bible. For anyone who can be truly honest with themselves knows that they cannot measure up to His perceived standards of perfection. Subsequently, the last thing they would want to believe is that He is actually there with them.
No, the Biblical accounts of our Heavenly Father having personal interaction with the likes of [Enoch], [Noah], [Abraham] and [Moses] have not been ignored, but the emphasis has been mostly placed upon the false notion that they had proven themselves worthy of His favor when the absolute truth of the matter truly is that there has never been anything good about any of us apart from Him.
Yes, it is indeed written: Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken falsely, and your tongue mutters wicked things. [Isaiah 59:1-3 NIV]
However, it would do us well to think of this separation as being like being in a bad marriage where the husband and wife still live under the same roof—even sleep in the same bed together, while their hearts and minds are worlds apart. For the absolute truth of the matter truly is that our Heavenly Father has always been with each and every one of us since the womb, but of what good is this to either Him or us when we do not want to recognize His presence?
Yes, He could make it undeniable by just making Himself physically visible, but some would only want to bow down before Him out of fear of what He could obviously do to them if they did not while others would only want to bow down before Him out of desire for personal gain when He wants to be loved for the goodness of His heart. Hence: the real reason for why He chose to hide His omnipresence from our physical sight.
No, our Heavenly Father’s ways are not nearly as mysterious as it has been so widely taught, but they are much higher (in regards to purpose) than our own. Therefore, they can appear to be quite a mystery—especially to those walking around in a stupor.
Speaking of such, I recently had quite an experience. For I woke up with my physical sight significantly impaired, and as if that was not enough to put a great scare into me, the only voice in my head that I could hear was the one telling me that my eyes would remain blurry since there was nothing that could be medically done to fix them.
Yes, it was rather stupid of me to despair. For I know, which goes far beyond merely having a great amount of faith on account of the [witness] of His Holy Spirit, that nothing can happen unless our Heavenly Father allows it to, and I also know that everything that has ever happened to me has been for His glory and my own ultimate good.
No, none of our thoughts should be taken too much for granted. For the devil and his demons are allowed to mess with our heads at times.
Alas, I fear that I am still far from being perfected, which should serve as sufficient proof in and of itself of such. For the one who fears is not perfected in love [1 John 4:16-18].
