If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/2ch.7.14.KJV
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/php.4.13.KJV
Our Lord and Savior helps us through every trial and problem that we have. Getting through life without Him is possible, but far more difficult. Follow Him in your daily walk with prayer and see where He takes your day.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.27.1.KJV
There are many, many things in this world and in the universe that we will never understand. Such as, why do birds sing? Why does the humpback whale sing and what is the song’s purpose? Why does the sky seem to light up with crimson fire just before dawn?
Understanding our life itself and why we are here is a mystery to every person on the Earth. Many of us search almost the entirety of our lives trying to find the true answer. Some people do find the answer but we don’t want to believe that it is as easy as believing in Jesus as our Savior. A child can understand it but most adults want to try to “help Jesus save my soul”. The fact is that no amount of work or prayer from us is needed in order to save us from an eternity in hell.
Understanding even a small amount of what Creation itself is and also understanding Who our Creator is…well it is too much for our finite minds to hope to grasp in this life. Maybe in a thousand years or more in His Presence we may grasp a fraction of His greatness and the purpose for the whole of creation. We may begin to grasp it during that time but it will likely take many thousands of years if we ever grasp these mysteries at all
Look at a hummingbird. It is the smallest of birds and yet it is the only species which can fly backward and hover in place. God designed them. He designed every cell in their body and in ours to carry oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body in a timely fashion. That is something which can’t be “evolved”. God is the Creator and it is His creation, those who don’t want to believe in a created universe just refuse to believe in the truth of the Bible.
But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Luke 6:35 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/luk.6.35.KJV
Love those who are not following Jesus. Love those who are against you in any way. Jesus loved even those who nailed Him to the cross. Do likewise.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/pro.1.7.KJV
Consider how you would feel if you could stand near one of the largest dinosaurs that ever lived. His legs look like tree trunks, the ground shakes when he walks. His tail could flip a loaded 18 wheeler like a ball hit by a bat. Now…consider that God created him to be awesome and big but also gentle. God is more than awesome. He created everything that we see on Earth and in the universe, and yet He loves each of us as His children.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.6.33.KJV
The time of grace is coming to a close, and it’s time for you to give your life to Jesus. We, as a planet, have had many years to learn from His Truth now it’s time to choose whom you will serve. We are not slaves, but bondservants of God. Giving Him our lives in exchange for our salvation. I pray that all who read this will give their hearts to Jesus while there’s time. In Jesus’ magnificent name, Amen.
Unless your pastor or your parents tell you where you can truly find out His will is for you, it can take a long time to find it. Being a Christian is not a simple decision with a easy pathway. God gave us a way to find His will but most people will miss it. It takes study and prayer through the Word of God to learn what your place is in His Kingdom. That is where you will find His will for your life. Every day thank God for allowing you to be alive for one more day, study His Word, praying about the scripture you are reading then use the scripture that day. Then do this again tomorrow and the next day and the next day. Learning more about the God Who loves you will bless you in ways that you cannot imagine.
God’s will for each of us is different but studying God’s Word is the best way to find His will for you and your life. Some people in the church never find out what His will is for their lives because they read the passage that the preacher is talking about and that is as far as their reading of God’s Word goes. You will never know God’s voice listening to a few verses on Sunday and His will for your life is not contained in a couple of verses either. The Bible is written as a living document from God so it needs to be read as if you and God are having a conversation about lots of different topics.
God loves and cares for every person on the Earth but He knows that many will not accept Jesus as their Savior. Only those that He calls and who choose to follow Jesus will know Him and be known by Him. Is this fair? Yes it is because it is the same for everyone! God doesn’t choose us by our name or how much money we have or by our ability to speak to a crowd. He chooses each of us because He knows that each of us can touch someone’s life in a way that may get them to seek out their Savior, Jesus.
Our lives and the lives of many people, in fact all people, are orchestrated and guided by God. We think that we are in control but God can move each of us around so that our life and His plan for our life will line up and match exactly the way He wants it to. Your will and God’s will are only the same when you are searching the Scriptures for your destiny, seeking Him as your Savior and living by what God says in it. Make sure that your life and His will for it line up at some point before your life is over.
It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. Proverbs 21:9 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/pro.21.9.KJV
The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:25 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/pro.11.25.KJV
