God: hides behind the veil…
Matthew 27:50-53 (KJV) “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”
In our lives we strive to accomplish things and sometimes they come to fruition and then again, the bigger things seem impossible to come into our grasp. They always seem to be just outside of our reach.
If God were to open our eyes to see the barriers, we could discern that maybe there is an invisible veil blocking those things which we want to accomplish from coming to fruition.
Today, it might be a good time to start praying and asking God to reveal the veil blocking what we striving to accomplish and give us the wisdom to remove it so we can attain our life goals.
God: coordinated protection…
Luke 4:9-11(KJV) “And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
Sometimes the troubles can come in two’s or even three’s and it might appear that there is no letting up for just the space of a single second; no end in sight for the pressures we face.
Yet through it all, when the end is manifested, we see that God, our Heavenly Father had a plan all along.
There must have been need for those testings to take place; it was necessary that the burden was borne.
In hindsight, God knew and had a plan and He did work it out.
God: will hear my cry….
Psalm 12:1 (KJV) “Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
It seems that the more time spent in being diligent to things that pertain to God, there can be more affliction shot your way which will create a mirage to cause discouragement.
That is not God’s will, but in everything we go through, that our strength be lifted up and our determination to forge forth be evident.
Even as the backlash comes our way in this life, let our cries be toward heaven as we shout out, “Help Lord”. Our heavenly Father will hear our cries.
Will be on a short Hiatus….
To God be the glory for this opportunity to be on a short hiatus….Back next week.
Jeremiah 10:6 (KJV) “Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.”
It is so mind boggling to really get the concept, but when it hits home, it brings to life who we are and what we are able to accomplish in this life: if only we can conceptualize it.
God made us in His image and called us “good” after looking at us; knowing who God is and His nature, it i pure delight to know that what is within Him is within us as well.
The Prophet Jeremiah calls Him “great” and surely there is none greater in power. If God is great and has granted us license to be like Him, it behooves us to think like God, for His attributes ought to be included in our DNA.
God: grants us license to be like Him.
God: planted it within us….
1 Peter 3:15 (KJV) “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”
The intimacy we have with our Lord cannot be explained even to those who are apart from the faith; it must be experienced to be understood. That intimacy comes with a lot of other menu options that just about blooms within us after a while.
There is love, joy, peace, happiness, mercy and temperance just to name a few in our walk with God; these are some of the gifts planted within us and it ought to be a shining light and demonstration of who we are in Christ.
When someone looks at us, they can see these attributes as a light shining from within us. We can then explain that it is God who is shining throughout our inner being.
God: is not confused at all….
1 Corinthians 14:33 (KJV) “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”.
I don’t get to swearing and think that a person can be expressive without letting loose with the colorful jargon familiar in our world today, but that’s just my thought.
Yet at times when you see the performance of some folks as they go through this life and deal with some simple processes, it really does make you wonder.
It’s more enchanting when you realize that at times they may be believers and it begs one to wonder, in what.
But hey, judge not that you be judged and fall into condemnation yourself.
God truly is love and He is not confused.
