God the Creator

God’s proof is irrefutable. No matter how a person tries to deny God, it doesn’t change the fact of His existence. The Lord left His mark on every continent. God designed His awesome creations as a way to connect with Him. Even unbelievers are amazed by their natural surrounding but fail to give God glory and stay in darkness.

Many scientists use their intelligence to disprove God. They come up with theories to explain how life emerged. But their facts have limitations because they fail to understand the complexity of God’s incredible organized design. The debated Big Bang Theory and Darwinism is flawed. No one gives birth to themselves.

One of my friends shared with me an amazing story attesting to God’s invisible attributes. Chris’s sister sustained a horrific head injury. She fell down a flight of stairs causing severe skull trauma. Her physical condition was serious, and most people don’t recover without major problems.

The doctors shared with Chris and his family her poor prognosis. Those physicians became surprised because she made a full recovery with no speech, cognitive or mobility problems. And because of her miraculous healing, it drew other well-respected doctors to witness her unexplained recovery. These men of medicine marveled over her extraordinary outcome from a devastating accident.

And-the-prayer-of-faith

 

Here we see how God created the human body with an ability to heal itself. Now if doesn’t prove God as a Creator, then I sorry for you. Scientists find themselves baffled over this unbelievable cleverness of God’s unique planned design.

The greatest experience with God is His remarkable Living Spirit. Once God saves a soul, then He showers the individual with an undeniable love. This astonishing awakening to His presence leaves no doubt since nothing the world offers matches God’s grace.

Connecting with God isn’t our choice. Remember, God saved us by His grace. This is a special privilege not given to everyone. When God opens the door to His kingdom through Christ, then we know He is the sole Creator of everything. Our eyes become full of spiritual light, and we understand the difference between physical and spiritual death. This wisdom isn’t by mistake but from Christ.

He-saved-us-not-because

Another impressive God consciousness is the peace we find in Christ. Adam and Eve’s disobedience caused everyone to experience sin. And this real and painful truth can’t be denied.

No one is without sin.

 

God wants to love His creations and provided faith as a way back into His grace. God designed everyone with the same emotional DNA and Christ relieves us from our darkened souls. Our devotion to Christ gives testimony to God as the Creator because without salvation freedom from the bondage of sin stays elusive. We are blessed to experience God’s mercy!

God makes His existence known. He didn’t limit us to those visible signs where we see His creations. He allows us to experience His Living Spirit. This inner-connectedness makes living in a world riddled with corruption a temporary existence since our spiritual inheritance is in heaven.

It doesn’t matter if you are a new believer or a seasoned veteran; we agree God isn’t dead. He is alive in us with Christ, and our salvation bears witness to God’s creations.

Worry

Worrying is a human tendency and hard to break. Life terms are full of anxiety. Most people struggle to survive and live. The financial demands imposed by the world are unavoidable. Everyone needs to pay bills.

When I worry, it affects my spiritual equilibrium. I become unbalanced in my Christian walk. This places me in an unsafe place, and I make unwise decisions. Those irrational actions cause my life unnecessary suffering. Every time I fail to rely on Christ the outcome doesn’t turn out fruitful.

Worrying takes away my spiritual effectiveness. When I become uneasy over a circumstance out of my control, it prevents me from being useful. I become self-centered and use my will to solve problems reserved for Christ’s intervention. And the more I hold onto the trouble it makes my life miserable.

Therefore-I-tell-you-do (1)

 

God is subtle in the way He corrects my weaknesses. He uses my times of indecisions to show me relying on Christ in my daily affairs is best. When I leave God out of the mix, it doesn’t turn out right. Without Christ, as the centerpiece, I’m lost and exposed to emotional problems. But when I humble myself to Him remarkable results emerge.

Christ is there for us, and God is watching how we react to the circumstances of life. Jesus is our mightiest warrior against anxiety. And when we turn to Him in times of worrisome predicaments, then He brings us inner peace. This serenity in times of distress calms our spirits and uplifts our hearts.

The-Lord-is-near-to-the

Times get hard, but our devotion to God gives us the strength to move past trouble. Christ is our greatest asset to the woes of the world. Place your trust in God and find the solutions to your problems. And remember God works on a different timeline so don’t give up before He responds.

Faith in action cures anxiety caused by too much worrying. God takes care of those who trust in Christ. When we rely on Christ at the early stages of troubles, then we are better suited to overcome them quicker. Don’t forget God gave us the gift of salvation and are accountable to the way we handle life.

The power of prayer is indisputable. Our personal experience with building a strong prayer life is proof of God’s faithfulness. And the way of overcoming uncertainty begins with prayer.

And-whatever-you-ask-in

Faith teaches us Christ is the way we adjust our lives to meet every circumstance. The more we give our lives over to God it becomes easier to side-step worry and become better servants to our Messiah.

How do you overcome worry?

A Deadly Three Letter Word

The problems we are facing in today’s world isn’t new. Throughout humanity’s history; defying God is well recorded. In Biblical times the way society rejected God’s call and in the New Testament, the Pharisees killed Jesus are facts.

Evilness is held together by a reprobate mind anchored in sin. Often the talk of sin is discounted and swept under the table, but our witness to its destruction is unavoidable. Unconfessed sin and the lack of repentance are the tools God’s enemy uses to destroy a human’s relationship with God. The three letter word sin kills the spirit and without God’s grace leads to damnation.

No one wants to look at the sinful side of their existence. It is painful, full of guilt and a relentless advisory. When Adam and Eve’s sin caused their great fall from God, everything changed. From that point forward every human is born into sin (Romans 5:19). This unpalatable truth permeates the hearts of people and without God’s forgiveness, it kills the soul.

For-as-by-one-mans

I know a life centered in darkness. In the past, before God shed His grace on my life, sin dominated my heart. Sin consumed my behaviors causing others to avoid me. My language full of filthiness and my actions cemented in selfishness. Dishonesty, resentment, and fear destroyed my heart leading to a hopeless existence. I hated living and wanted to die.

God saved me and opened my eyes to a life beyond sin. Once Christ took my spirit, then I saw the world through faith’s eyes. God awakened me to the fruitlessness of sin and into the eternal hope of salvation. Now I understand Christ’s outlook on sin and the significance for repentance. I’m grateful for God’s mercy and the sacrifice Christ made so I can live an eternal life.

No-I-tell-you-but-unless

Unbelievers are quick to defy God because they watch Christians living in sin. They use this to disprove God’s existence. God’s chosen ones understand the subtle ways of sin.

Real faith knows sin is always present. A Christian life isn’t the absent of sin. It’s by God’s grace a sinner is saved and given Christ the conqueror of evil. And once Christ opens the door to God’s kingdom then repentance keeps sin from taking over the heart of a believer. Remember spiritual warfare never ceases because God’s enemy always searches for a weakness in a believer’s armor. Trust in Christ and see the impossible- the remission of sins.

A Christian’s life may appear to full of sin. To a degree, it’s true, but God doesn’t leave us without a way to live free from its bondage. Our Father gives us the opportunity to take from His Tree of Life (Genesis 3:22). He anoints us with Holy Spirit and allows Christ to wash clean the spiritual filth sin leaves on a person’s soul. This great revelation isn’t without responsibility for we must be active in repenting and live a holy life.

God’s good news is Christ gives us eternal hope. The way to stay in remission from sin is picking up our cross and walking with Christ. The Lord takes notice when our cross is heavy, and we turn to Christ’s strength for the strength to overcome its burdens. With Christ’s courage, we never lack the spiritual muscle necessary to turn away from sin. Remember we are never alone!

Do-your-best-to-present

Sin is necessary to understand. God wants me to know how disgusted He is with disobedience. But His mercy leads me to the freedom Christ brings to His faithful believers. Unconfessed sin causes friction between God and us. It’s imperative for me to repent the moment I realize my sin. No matter how I try to side-step sin, it always circles back. I’m grateful God showed me my sins!      If-we-say-that-we-have

Enjoying God’s Natural Surroundings

Everything God made is incredible. He is an excellent creator, and we are blessed to witness His marvelous creativity. Even though original sin caused us suffering, He surrounded us with a stunning natural setting appealing to our eyes.

Nature is full of God’s remarkable imprints. No matter what natural setting you prefer, God created it for your enjoyment. Finding joy in God’s other creations isn’t by accident but by His design. Our Father left us an abundance of other creatures, mountains, oceans and forests for pleasure.

It’s tough for me to narrow down a single choice from God’s enormous creations. I enjoy watching nature, and it always lifts my spirits. Sunsets and harvest moons are pleasant to experience bringing joy to my day and night. Dolphins are fascinating. When I’m around mountains, it captures my attention, and I enjoy their incredible scenery.

Evolutionists try their best to discount God the Creator. Charles Darwin had doubts but published his theory of evolution. Random chance and mutations are his claims for life.

Even if Darwin had the advances in today’s modern science, it still doesn’t explain the organized design from living organisms. The complexity of DNA and cell development are beyond human comprehension, and God hasn’t shown humans everything. He has mysteries unknown to us. And it’s in His creation of nature that has left His mark on every continent and body of water.

The evidence of God is everywhere. He allows us to enjoy our stay on earth by exposing us to supernatural powers. Every flower, insect, creature and cosmic events prove His existence. Isn’t God terrific!

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)

Joyful Deliverance

In my past, a joyful existence was elusive. I lived apart from God and in total darkness. Life involved chasing after short-lived experiences grounded in personal pleasures. Sin dominated my soul causing nothing but trouble.  Self-searching motives a normal occurrence anchoring a life of selfishness. No matter what the world offered, it couldn’t fill the emptiness inside my spirit.

Living life on my willpower caused unrelenting suffering. I thought happiness came from a whisky bottle but the more I got drunk an unshakable despair unfolded. Sexual immorality brought the same results. Everything I used to fill the spiritual void in my life drove me deeper into the black hole of hopelessness. This reckless lifestyle brought me to my knees.

It brings me great joy to share God saved me. I no longer live in sin and Christ delivered me from evil. Freed from the bondage of self and into God’s grace. This connection with God is a joyous occasion. The Lord makes life a happy and enlightening experience.

Since hearing God’s calling and repenting for my sins, a new outlook on joy emerged. I can’t find a better enjoyment of life than the one I receive from devoting myself to Christ. His presence brings me the greatest satisfaction. This profound spiritual consciousness keeps me seeking God and continues making me joyful!

Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10)

Have you found joy in God?

Humanity’s Greatest Joy

God brings the greatest joy known to humanity. His incredible way of delivering us happiness in a world full of tragedy is uplifting. He sends serenity in times of distress and through Christ we find inner-peace. Even though we may become disturbed the hope God gives keeps us spiritually balanced. Behind every blessing, we find God’s joy.

The connection between Christ and enjoying life isn’t an accident. God’s designed plan included receiving joy in His spiritual gifts. Since our Father placed Christ as His centerpiece, then real happiness radiates through our personal relationship with His Son. The joy Christ brings isn’t short-lived but never ending.

I’m grateful for God because Christ has changed my life. Every day is a new beginning and God is watching the way I awake to its opportunity. I try my best upon awakening to focus my thoughts on God. This gives me the best start to the day and leads me to a joyous beginning. I’m not perfect. I stumble and drift away. But the moment I realize it, humble myself before God then Christ steps in and showers me with God’s love.

The link between spiritual life and joyfulness is God’s powerful way of showing us the treasures of heaven. Christ makes following God an enjoyable and exceptional experience. Nothing the world offers comes near the happiness God gives to His faithful followers.

My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed (Psalm 71:23).

Are you experiencing God’s joy?

Divine Privilege

Being chosen by God to join His Kingdom is a divine privilege (Ephesians 2:8-10). God invited us into an elite family. He included us with His most trusted servants and wanted us to live with Him forever. And God made Christ the head of His family.

When I meditate over the remarkable company God has placed me in I’m astonished. His list of faithful people is extraordinary. I’m grateful to be included with God’s chosen people; Abraham, Moses, Ruth, Peter, Paul and many other biblical ancestors. It is exhilarating  knowing one day I will be able to meet them in heaven.

For-as-in-one-body-we

One of the most stunning revelations from God is experiencing the same Living Spirit as those people we find in the Bible. Our Father doesn’t show favoritism (Galatians 3:28), and once He saves a soul, then Christ begins teaching God’s way. We are blessed to have the same path to eternal life as our predecessors.

God’s divine privilege of salvation separates us from spiritual death. Our Father united us together through Christ to plan for His new heaven and earth (Revelation 21:1-7). And God’s gift of Christ secures our inheritance for eternal life.

The Lord’s infinite wisdom of everlasting life doesn’t come without responsibility. We must be active in carrying Christ’s message and learning to live holy. The most efficient way of sharing God’s promise of salvation is through living life through faithful examples (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Let-not-steadfast-love

This means we need to show others the impact Christ makes in our lives by responding to the world’s injustices through love, forgiveness, and devotion. It isn’t easy but not impossible because the Christ in us provides a strength beyond ours.

Remember God saved our souls, and this means we are no longer living for ourselves but His glory. And glorifying God can’t be accomplished without Christ. To glorify God is picking up our cross, walking in Christ footprints and living in God’s purpose.

When I lived outside of God’s kingdom, my life wasn’t useful. I knew nothing of living holy and relied on myself for the answers to life’s riddle. My outlook on life was grim, and I was skeptical towards God. I became agnostic, and this was an empty and lonely existence. Even though I denied God, He had plans to save me. I’m grateful He introduced to Christ and snatched me out of the darkness. I owe everything to Him.

For-the-grace-of-God Today I’m honored to hear God’s voice. Christ has taken away any excuses for me not to humble myself before God. Even though I’m not perfect, Christ doesn’t abandon me because He has shown me the way of repentance. And this allows me to grow in God’s image.

One of God’s greatest privilege is enabling us to be called His sons and daughters. To be chosen by God and recognized as one of His children isn’t to be taken lightly. Remember, we didn’t save ourselves. And this holds us accountable to live in Christ and give Him our undivided attention. We must give Christ our best efforts because the result from a complacent faith has fatal consequences.

I-will-be-a-Father-to

God gives us many spiritual privileges. Life in the flesh is temporary, but heaven is forever. If I don’t experience God’s Living Spirit then something wrong. The Holy Spirit is the way God lets us know our faith is real. Without it, we can’t live in Christ, and the door to God’s kingdom stays closed.

The Wisdom of Fearing God

Fearing God is found throughout the Bible. The Old and New Testaments tells us to fear God. And for good reason. Contained within God’s Book are many examples of the way he disciplines disobedience.

God wrath isn’t subtle. He gives us every opportunity to repent. The Old Testament is full of God’s patience in allowing the Israelites to change their sinful ways and live in obedience. The Lord was fair with them before acting on His judgment for their defiance. And God has given us their recorded history to remind us the penalty for disobedience.

When God delivered Christ to the world, this changed the way He deals with unfaithful actions. Jesus is God’s last covenant with humanity and without believing in Christ, no one will enter heaven. Once a believer places faith in Christ; then the wisdom of fearing God becomes understood.

The fear of God isn’t one that pushes us away from Him. It draws us closer to Christ because the knowledge of God’s judgment becomes real. Christ is the one who teaches us the way God will handle unbelievers, and the Book of Revelation is the blueprint to God’s final judgment. Don’t be mistaken; everyone one will face Christ’s verdict.

The good news is fearing God paves the way for our eternal inheritance. God shows us through Christ the rewards for following His commands. Our Father makes sure we have a place in heaven. We are fortunate to be chosen by God!

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. (Proverbs 3:7)

Do you fear God?

Fearlessness in Times of Terror

God is remarkable. He gives us a way to be fearless in a world riddled with corruption. The moment God anointed us with His Spirit, he placed us in Christ. This provided us with courage to face temptation through Christ’s strength. Fearlessness is turning to Christ in times of fear and putting our faith in His hands. And when we trust in God without reservations, then we overcome our fears.

The world is full of frightening circumstances aimed at causing fear to the human psyche. God’s enemy is hard at work trying to create an atmosphere of terror. And without God’s protection, the panic plays havoc with the human spirit.

Today we are facing a powerful force of evil. This wicked threat isn’t new. When sin entered the heart of Adam and Eve, it corrupted the human mind. No matter how one tries to avoid this unpalatable truth the destruction sin causes doesn’t go away.

God created us with the ability to understand not to risk our lives by placing ourselves in life-threatening circumstances. He gave us instincts to prevent us from walking into danger. But Satan uses unpredictable conditions to keeps us afraid, and this makes it imperative for us to devote ourselves to Christ.

We are blessed to be chosen by God and experience His grace. Faith is the antidote to the paralyzing grip of unreasonable fears. Our belief in Christ unlocks the door to a courage Satan can’t touch because Jesus has defeated evilness. Pick up your cross, walk with Christ and watch fear fade away.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

 How do you overcome fear?

Belonging to God’s Remarkable Kingdom

Belonging to something is one of my most cherished experiences. In my past being a part of something intrigued me. Even though I wanted to belong to social circles, I never was comfortable around others. I feared rejection. And these insecurities grew stronger as I entered adulthood.

Today I’m grateful to share with you God has open Christ’s door, and I now belong to His kingdom. This eternal revelation taught me when I fail to rely on Christ then my sense of worthlessness returns with a vengeance. Without being a part of Christ my actions and behaviors become unmanageable causing me to react to life in evil ways.

The-fear-of-man-lays-a

God’s calling is the most significant and dynamic message of my life. He made belonging to His Church (Christ) the greatest joy of life. Nothing brings me more enjoyment than living with Christ. God has taken my soul, given it to Christ and united it with His Spirit. I owe everything to God.

The Lord gave me eternal hope secured through my faith in Christ. And when I’m living in God’s will He showers me with His Spirit letting me understand I belong to Him forever.

Before God rescued me, self-centered fears got the best of me. My outlook on life was negative. I lived in isolation and never could shake my loneliness. And the more I relied on myself, the worse my life spiraled out-of-control.

When my life became hopeless, God snatched me out of the darkness and into His Light. God awakened me to His truth, and Christ removed my self-centered fears replacing them with Christian confidence.

God’s invitation to join Him is remarkable. It’s gratifying belonging to Christ’s church, and nothing the world offers matches this unbelievable joy. Nothing in the world satisfies my love for God. I owe everything to the Lord.

For-God-gave-us-a-spirit

 

One of the neatest awareness of being a part of God is I’m never alone. Since the day God anointed me with His Living Spirit, my loneliness has taken a back seat. Every day I’m blessed to experience His presence and understand Christ is with me.

Don’t misunderstand me; I have times of discouragement but God never leaves me alone. His Spirit is alive inside me,   and He never leaves without being connected.

Today I’m comfortable living in my skin without the fear of inadequacy. Now that God has placed me in Christ this gives me a spiritual courage strong enough to walk in Christian confidence. And when I keep Christ as my primary focus then my unwarranted fears melt away giving birth to a life anchored in eternal security. God will do the same to you!

Another excellent awareness of belonging to Christ is the connection I experience with other faithful followers. Many times I have felt God’s Spirit radiating through the hearts of others. Every time I share God’s words with my brothers and sisters in Christ the closer I become with God. And this experience motivates me to carry Christ’s Gospel. I’m grateful for the brotherhood and sisterhood God has brought to my life.

God’s world is incredible! I hope you are experiencing the joy of having Christ as your savior!
