Category: Believe in the One Who saves
When Elijah was praying for the drought to come to an end, he sent his servant to see if God had answered seven times. It wasn’t until the seventh time that he came back and said there was a cloud the size of his hand visible in the sky. That’s when he went to the king of Israel and told him that the drought was over.
God uses people who believe in Him to accomplish His will and His purpose. He also uses little clouds to bring an end to a drought. God can do anything, even when people don’t expect Him to. Why don’t people believe that God can do these things… anything that He wants to do?
Today, there are too many people who have placed limits on God. They have put Him in a box that they have created for Him so that He is more relatable than the God of the Bible. In their minds He can only do certain things or rather He can only be God up to a point. We should not put limits on God but people do it all the time.
It’s a good thing for us that God doesn’t have limits on His love for us. I’m praying that more people will seek the Lord as their savior soon.
Faith is confidence in God’s provision
Even when we can’t see it happening, faith gives us the confidence that God will provide our needs. Hoping for His will to be done in our lives and having the faith to believe He will.
Crucify your old life daily
On the cross…
Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: And I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; And for comforters, but I found none. They gave me also gall for my meat; And in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. Psalm 69:20-21 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.69.20-21.KJV
This was fulfilled by Jesus on the day of His crucifixion. God knew then what was needed in order to pay the bill for our sins. The death and resurrection of Jesus was the only way to reconcile our sins so that we could have a place in Heaven if we will believe in Him for our salvation.
Do good while following Jesus
We are blessed!
Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; That walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: Happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: Thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: And thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, And peace upon Israel. Psalm 128:1-6 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.128.1-6.KJV
