Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this? (John 11:25-26 ASV)
Who are you that God knows the numbers of hairs on your head and thinks of you more than the grains of sand on the beach. That your spouse chose you to spend their time with. That your children love. Your friends want to do things with you. Who are you? YOU ARE BLESSED! God loves you so much.
Jeremiah 2:7 – I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable. (NIV)
Revelation 11:18 – The nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who reverence your name, both small and great — and for destroying those who destroy the earth.
ISAIAH 30:15 For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
But if you will not, 16 And you said, “No, for we will flee on horses”— Therefore you shall flee!
And, “We will ride on swift horses”— Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
Matthew 6:31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Godly Principles #70 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” – Matthew 5:16 NKJV
To call your self a Christian and teach hatred, intolerance and violence goes against the very nature of God. Even when you are taking a stance to defend the word of God and our beliefs we must do so like Jesus showed us. He not only spoke the truth but he lived it in all of his work, relationships, and efforts. Jesus put God’s truth into actions and had mercy and compassion on the broken heart, the fatherless, the least of these shunned by mankind. Today, we are to pick up His cross and follow His ways and show through our actions the love and mercy of God upon the orphans, the widows, the prisoners, and the poor including the homeless. By acts of kindness taught in truth, we can help heal the hurting and wounded. We can relieve despair and pain to bring comfort and hope once again into others lives.
Godly Principles 69 All things work for good according to God’s plans
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
God said that if you will learn to trust Him, He will make all things in time, work for good. When our desires are spiritual the meaning of good will be the desires of God. When we look at this verse from our flesh, we think of idols, materialism, egotistical and lustfully desires. God’s purposes are to see no one perish, to build His kingdom and to help others in need.
