I DON’T KNOW IF GOD IS REAL

WE DON’T ALWAYS HAVE TO SEE THINGS TO KNOW THEY EXIST. WE KNOW THE WIND IS REAL BECAUSE WE FEEL ITS PRESENCE, AND TRUST ELECTRICITY BECAUSE WE HAVE EXPERIENCED ITS POWER, BUT OFTEN WE DOUBT THE EXISTENCE OF AN INTELLIGENT CREATOR EVEN THOUGH WE LIVE IN HIS BRILLIANTLY PERPLEX WORLD. LIFE IN ALL OF ITS COMPLEXITY CLEARLY POINTS TO GOD AND HIS DIVINE NATURE. GREATER THAN ANY EVIDENCE OR CRAFTY ARGUMENT THOUGH, IS THE FACT THAT GOD IS LONGING TO SHOW HIMSELF TO ANYONE THAT WANTS TO FIND HIM. WHEN YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY SEEK GOD, HE PROMISES TO BECOME REAL TO YOU, AND IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO DOUBT HIS EXISTENCE WHEN YOU TRULY SEE HIM WORKING IN YOUR LIFE.

 

BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK. IF ANYONE HEARS MY VOICE AND OPENS THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN TO HIM AND EAT WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME.

REVELATION 3:20

I’M MAD AT GOD

IT’S HARD NOT TO QUESTION A LOVING GOD’S MOTIVES WHEN YOU ARE BATTLING THROUGH LIFE’S PROBLEMS, AND IT’S NOT ALWAYS EASY TO SEE THE BIG PICTURE WHEN YOU ARE STANDING FACE TO FACE WITH YOUR STRUGGLE. WE’VE MADE UP IN OUR MINDS THE LIFE WE DESERVE, AND ARE UNSETTLED BY ANYTHING LESS; FAILING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OUR CREATOR MIGHT HAVE DIFFERENT PLANS FOR US, AND THAT HIS PLANS ARE ULTIMATELY GOING TO BE BETTER. GOD METICULOUSLY DESIGNED EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES, AND THOUGH IT MIGHT NOT ALIGN WITH OUR OWN PLANS, WE HAVE TO TRUST THAT HIS WAY IS GREATER THAN OURS. A LOVING FATHER DOESN’T ALWAYS SEEK THE EASIEST LIFE FOR HIS CHILDREN BUT HE ALWAYS SEEKS THE BEST.

 

FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU,” DECLARES THE LORD, “PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE.

JEREMIAH 29:11

I DON’T CARE ABOUT GOD

YOUR BELIEFS ULTIMATELY CHANGE YOUR LIFE. WHETHER IT BE ABOUT THE FOODS YOU EAT, THE WAY YOU LIVE, OR THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE; THE THINGS YOU BELIEVE TO BE TRUE DETERMINE WHO YOU ARE. SO HOW COULD WE EVER BE COMPLACENT WITH NOT KNOWING WHERE WE CAME FROM? IT’S EASY TO ASSUME THAT OUR BELIEFS ABOUT GOD ARE IRRELEVANT, BUT OUR STANCE ON GOD’S EXISTENCE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION WE CAN MAKE. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN WE TRUST IN JESUS AND BELIEVE HIS WORDS, THEN OUR LIVES HERE ON EARTH NOT ONLY CHANGE, BUT WE SEAL OUR ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.

 

WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

JOHN 3:16

I’M SICK OF THE LIES

SHOULD A PARENT’S REPUTATION BE CRIPPLED BY THE MISTAKES OF THEIR CHILDREN? SHOULD OUR VIEW OF A PERFECT GOD BE DETERMINED BY THE FLAWS OF HIS FOLLOWERS? WE HAVE ALL BEEN HURT BEFORE BY CHRISTIANS, AND PEOPLE OFTEN FAIL TO LIVE UP TO THE STANDARDS THAT JESUS HAS CALLED THEM TO. BUT WHEN YOU TRULY SEEK GOD AND STOP LETTING THE BLEMISHES OF THE PAST DETERMINE YOUR VIEW OF HIM, GOD’S PERFECT LOVE WILL OPEN YOUR EYES TO WHO HE REALLY IS. HE IS A CARING FATHER THAT DESIRES TO KNOW YOU, AND HE PROMISES A LOVE MORE GENUINE THAN YOU HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.

 

TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD; BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO TAKES REFUGE IN HIM.

PSALM 34:8
