People keep using a false situation to describe a need I don't have.
What if a burglar breaks into your home and threatens your life or you family?
I ask them.
WHAT IF GOD DIRECTED YOUR LIFE?
Could you Trust God if He is directing your life?
Or Do you need a "back-up plan" because;
a) God is Untrustworthy
b) God is not directing you life
If Daniel had needed a sword He would have killed the Lions and acted like David not Daniel.
If Elisha had needed to get out of bed and worry about His enemies on his doorstep He would have been Elijah not Elisha.
THE DIFFERENCE IS A GOD DIRECTED LIFE.
If God is directing you;
Do as He says.
If He isn't;
By all means, go get a gun and fool yourself to feel protected.
Because if God is not directing you;
having a gun or not will make no difference in the world at all.
