There is God

When anything happens, good or bad, there is God there with you to thank or reach out to for help. Jesus Christ paid the ransom, paid your fee for not being perfect and when we humbly ask Him, He saves us! God’s grace is enormous!! His love for us is unexplainable. His goodness is unfathomable. And nothing can separate us from His adoption of us when we are saved. We are to use the gifts He purposefully and lovingly gave us for Him!!! So do it. Be saved, do good works for Him, love on Him as He has always loved on you! He and you are an unbeatable team. When you are weakest, He is strongest and nothing is impossible in His provision and care. Today is the day to be His!!!! Yay!!! ❤❤❤

When God Saves US Again

There is salvation from our sins through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Savior/Messiah. That happens when we humble our spirits and pray that we have messed up and accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior. Bam, we are saved. We then live our lives for God, thinking and acting for His good and helping who we can be saved or encouraged or helped. We worship by our obedience, humbleness, prayer, Bible study, service. This is who we are and we have immediately the development of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our life (love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control) as well as love, hope of eternity with Him now and in Heaven, and faith. And God helps us. It is really this simple. 

Sometimes, we screw up again. And maybe it is something we like and/or think we want or need at the time, but it is not right, things we would not do if God were standing right there. Well, once we realize God is always standing right there because duh, He is God, and that He is holy, we all of a sudden realize that we need Him to save us again from this patch of mess we are in. And will He save us again? YES! The way is the same. Humbly admit you screwed up and ask His forgiveness in prayer and atop doing it. Become involved in His work again and worship Him. God is forgiving and faithful to His Word in the Bible and so very good and loving. Yes, holy too, so we need Jesus to save us and wash us clean. So don’t give up and don’t believe the lies the enemy tells that it is ok to keep sinning or to go ahead because God doesn’t care or He won’t save you because you go back to it. God is very forgiving. Humbly pray and ask Him for help and stop messing up. God does care and loves you and wants you to be saved. Out loud, say it all to God. But humbly do it. God is amazing and will help. And we all need His help and are empty down deep without that connection to Him. He did lovingly make us all after all. Get back to Him right now. 🙂

Hope from God

Ugly is everywhere, irrational evil and primitive primal evil practices and demoralizing of people and demeaning of people is prevailing many of our countries around the world and even shockingly in some states in our country. Many cults are filled and run by evil puppets on evil strings, all ignorant but greedy and lustful and all working for God’s enemy to destroy as many as Satan can in the short time he has left to do anything. Satan is like an opossum backed into a corner by a guard dog, knowing it is going to die but going to inflict as much damage as possible on his way out. And this is our world right now. Jesus is Coming back soon, and the sooner the final day is, the more damage evil will do if allowed. Do not try to reason with evil. Evil cannot be reasoned with because it only wants you dead after hurting you as much as possible. Nothing else interests it. Do not reason. Defend yourself and stand on the hope we have. Pray. Fast. Pray and fast. Those of us who have hope in God have eternal life waiting for us b in paradise with God. Only those who are saved by accepting Jesus’ free gift of salvation are guaranteed a happily ever after and have this hope. One we have it, God, the Winner of all wars, fights for us and we gave nothing to fear. God is everything! I have hope in God. Do you? It is as easy as a prayer with a humble heart and then start reading your Bible from God and pray. Then welcome to His peace and joy and love and all good things. Such beautiful hope!!!

Seeking and Finding God

I always wonder at people who are seeking God and His will. The first part is rather awkward if you think about it. It is like walking through the woods and becoming frustrated because you can’t find any trees. God made everything and He is everywhere. He is always eager to have a conversation because He happens to love us and thinks He did good making us (and He did!). So, it isn’t a matter of seeking God like He is lost but like we are. Deciding to hear Him is the thing, realizing full well you may have to change be some stuff for Him to be a regular part of your life, well that is what generally keeps people seeking half-heartedly and not finding. And His will is almost as easy to find. His Word (the Bible) is His will. Obedience is what He wills for us, our hardest and most rewarding job. Worship He requires and that is easy. No one is better or stronger or more artistically rich or smarter than God. So there it is. Is a relationship with God that simplistic? Yep. It is. That is as long as we avoid distractions and wrong turns along the way. And He is accessed best by  believing and thanking His Son Jesus Christ for saving us from our sins. Jesus is our mediator between a holy God and us because He lived as we do and understands us better than we do. So there it all is. The whole kit and kaboodle. How to be saved and assured that we will walk with God now and forever when our now is our then. And all of life is better closer to the One who gave it to us. He is amazing! 🙂

Salvation

Anyone’s soul may be saved with utmost confidence when we humby pray to accept Jesus Christ as the sacrifice for our sins to God. The Bible spells it all out and you are welcome to read there, specifically Mark or John or Luke (my favorite). But sometimes we start off great but something or someone or usually we ourselves takes us off the straight path and we end up on a side trail. It can lead you the wrong way and distract you from the correct path. Distractions are huge in life. There are so many out there. A d so stoked you do not even realize you got off the right path and all of a sudden God plops down an inch ahead of you a solid steel 50 foot wall in front of you  that you run into and get knocked down for a bit. You think you might be down for the count, this is it, all done, give up and throw in the towel. However, because we are saved, God has actually intervened and He Himself had dropped down that wall from Heaven, not as punishment but because of His amazing love of you, wanting to point you back to the right path. And when you do finally come to, God reveals this to you and you get it and scramble your behind back to the proper trail and journey on, wiser and with an immense appreciation for God’s loving care of you and your salvation. You see, we sometimes need a lesser salvation along the way to keep us honest, keep us or restore us to holy for our Savior. And praise God, He delivers!!
