    PROVERBS 3:5 TRUST IN THE LORD WITH --ALL THINE HEART--AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING ACTS 24:25 AND AS HE REASONED OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TEMPERANCE AND JUDGEMENT TO COME FELIX TREMBLED AND ANSWERED GO THY WAY FOR THIS TIME WHEN I HAVE A CONVENIENT SEASON I WILL CALL FOR THEE PROVEERBS 12:17 HE THAT SPEAKETH TRUTH SHOWETH FORTH RIGHTEOUSNESSBUT A FALSE WITNESS DECEIT----LOGIC ???

    Melody; Very good question! Its like how Jesus said in Matthew 5:25, to be in a good mind and agreeable toward your adversary that you not be brought before the Judge. The definition for "reason" is: to think through logically, as a problem; to think or argue in a logical manner; to form conclusions, judgments, or inferences from facts or premises. This is about our acknowledging the truth.
  • Melody williams
    My bible study is doing Isaiah, we answer questions, and I have a question? what does it mean to reason with God?
  • A disciple
    Hi Jim; I once heard, that "Temptations won't cease till we're 15 minutes dead!" The difference that the Father has put between us and those who will not hear Jesus' voice, is the good and honest heart which acknowledges the truth, bows its head and says O Lord, be merciful to me the sinner! Jesus forgives us the sins and sets us free, and gives us grace and His Spirit to be holy and steadfast.
  • Jim
    Did the people ever feel guilt from their sins? I think we all have battled the temptations of sin early in our salvation, til guilt and shame finally overwhelms our lives and existence. The yoke of sin becomes heavy and finally we fall, look up and give it all to the Lord.
    (Matt 11:29) Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

    The people in this passage were playing a game with God. They went through the motions, prayed, and even went to church. God said "I won't hear you." Still, he told them how to change. Learn to do good.
