No. It can’t be done. God is God. I can’t make a fool of God but I can be a fool.
God operates under certain principles. It is essential, if you do A, you can expect B.
Paul wants me to let God’s Spirit work in my heart. That produces the results God wants, not the results I want.
That is the focus. Focus on love and obeying God. Focusing on God brings life that lasts forever.
Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God!—harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8 MSG
