If I could say 3 things to you, would you listen? Asked, Mike
I have had the opportunity to learn and grow much. But I need you all to know that I would not be who I am without all of you. Because you have loved me and been there, it set the stage for me to get to know Who God is, and who I am!
I have felt at times, whether it’s true or not, that maybe I wasn’t really taken that seriously as a man of God. That the words I have said at times weren’t really that important. Jesus dealt with this when He went back to His hometown to preach. Because everybody knew Him and grew up with Him, they had a hard time believing He was a prophet and The Son of God!
And because of this, it limited His effectiveness there.
Whether it’s true or not, I have struggled with feeling this and it has kept me from saying things at times that I would have. But now, I have some things that I want to share, that I need to say, and I want you to listen. Because life is very very short!
God is a good God.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
So for the one who puts their Faith in God and His Word, if there’s stealing, killing or destroying going on, it’s NOT coming from Him!
God is always Faithful.
He always does His part. But we have to do our part for the Word to work in our lives. His part (Faithfulness to His word) Our part (Obedience and Faith).
Never read the Bible (Truth) in light of your experiences. You must settle on the inside whether the Word is true or not, no matter what you’ve experienced. There is a reason it didn’t work out like you thought, not cause God chose to do it that way.
A faithful God doesn’t go around just ignoring our requests. NO! there is always a reason!
God has always had an individual plan. For each of our lives, but to discover his specific plan, we each must spend time with Him (in prayer and study of His Word). Then we must lay down our will (our pride, our way of doing things) and do what He said the way He said. It’s by doing this we are able to hear His voice and know his plan and partake of His exceeding great and precious promises.
We only have one life. It’s not about how you started in God’s eyes. It’s about how you finish! FINISH STRONG!!!
