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.
Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships. I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King. Isaiah 43:14-15 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/isa.43.14-15.KJV
He is our Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, and the Lion of Judah who will show up in the sky! Jesus is coming soon to take the church to be with Him. Make sure your salvation and your faith are in Him.
Today, respect is expected by many but most haven’t earned it at all. Respect is earned. Unlike the grace and mercy that God gives us whether we deserve it or not, respect is something that shouldn’t be given just because someone expects it to be given. God loves us whether we deserve His love or not and just as we don’t deserve our salvation through our belief in Jesus…it is available as long as we believe in Him as our Savior. We can’t earn our way into Heaven because that is only by God’s grace and mercy through Jesus’ sacrifice and our belief in Him too. Make sure of your destination because only one of them is an abundant and beautiful life for eternity.
There is pain being felt in this world. There is suffering in this world, all around us…but God is alive and He is in control! It doesn’t bring Him pleasure that we suffer in our human bodies but He is joyful when even one of us gives our heart to Jesus!
God loves us! Each person on Earth regardless of their religion, ethnicity, or beliefs is loved by Him but our sinful lives and the things that we do in this life that are against His commandments are not loved by Him at all. Even if we are religious and call ourselves followers of Him and yet we have only followed the “god” that we have made in our image that we can tolerate, then we are not actually following God or Jesus but we have become idolators because of the “god” that we have made.
Many people have made a god in their image and their likeness because they don’t want to follow the One True God. They want one that they can claim and understand. This is why there is such a revival and an outpouring of God’s Spirit in America right now. Because people are hungry for the Real Jesus! Many have finally realized that the “god” that they have made is not real and cannot help them in any way, especially when it comes to bringing salvation into their lives and eternity into their hearts.
John 3:16,17,18 says it best: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
