God: looks at all the situation….
Matthew 6:14-15 (KJV) “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
Approaching our heavenly Father as we consider the things in our lives which we undergo and walk through can be a cleansing effort. But we have to be earnest in how we approach His throne of grace.
We can get a new start, a brand new slate when we walk away from the baggage we carry ourselves; release things, let them go and forget the hurt, the harm, the dark thoughts that want to cling to us.
Moving on with a mind made up to walk in newness.
God is able to help with the process. Seek His face and direction and the change will come.
God: does it right every time….
Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”
At times we get to wondering if something that falls into our laps such as an unexpected gift or such will last or if it’s a authentic thing; almost as if it’s too good to be true or as a matter of fact as if we might not be good enough to receive such a gift.
But as a child of God especially, as His child, He put great thought into blessing us and that blessing is without regrets. He doesn’t bless today and causes the gift to be rotten another day.
When He blesses, it brings about great richness to our souls; it makes us glad and happy.
Consider the next gift you get from your heavenly Father and remember if you ask Him for a fish, he would not give you a snake.
God is good to us and His blessings brings gladness to our souls.
God: pours out His love in many ways….
2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
In our society we tend to put the word grace under trial; some think it is used too loosely to accommodate for everything wrong that is done by a believer. Some think it is a cop out and then others that it ought not to be substituted for wrong behavior.
Who’s wrong and who is right is a question that comes to mind in dealing with the issue.
One thing that is evident from Paul’s testimony; although his trials was much, he had to go through them because Jesus already granted enough grace to undergo the pressure.
Grace: a dilemma.
God: gave us His Son to be everything to us….
Isaiah 53:3-5 (KJV) “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
In this life, many times we tend to look on the surface to approve a situation, look on the surface to make an approval on someone’s appearance and determine what we think of them and if we will allow them into our circle of association.
It’s not strange behavior seeing that Jesus was treated the same; “we hid as it were our faces from him”. He didn’t act how we were accustomed or did the things we wanted to do, so He became a castaway to us, it was easy to discard Him.
He was our Savior. The Savior of the world and He came to die for our sins; which disappeared immediately He was crucified on the cross, just so.
He might not be appealing to our taste, but He is is the best thing that ever happened to us.
God: gave us this gift-take it….
Matthew 15:25-28 (KJV) “Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”
We call to GOD in our times of need, when we are torn apart and in desperate need of help. Things that ought to be good is somehow bad and it is not bearable at the best of times.
We call to GOD; He is the one who can help us and we know. We have seen it, we have witnessed it, we have been the benefactor of it at times.
Now we need our Savior to come through in a way that no one else can and it is to Him alone we turn: in our time of need.
Healing is the children’s bread. He is our Father
God: destiny maker…
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV) “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
When God designed the blueprint that would secure our destiny through Jesus Christ His son, it required a specific thing: that Jesus would be obedient even unto death on the cross.
We crossed that hurdle and He was faithful to the plan and now as we partner in agreement to receiving Him into our lives and loving Him even as He has loved us we can say “thank you Lord”
He and His Son were and is still in agreement as to our lives. We can be thankful.
God: loves us to death…
Romans 8:37-39 (KJV) “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The love of God does something to us that in all actuality we can’t explain to another person. Especially if that person is out of the fellowship and body of Christ; they just don’t get it.
But one thing that is clear when you have experience that love: not talking about any fake experience, you know, the real thing; it gets into you and recreates your thinking process.
You start liking folks who would ordinarily would drive you crazy; become more tolerant and accepting of bad attitudes and behaviors.
I can live with this love, yes I kinda like the changes.
