A lot has happened in the past week and a half. It’s been a real struggle to find the way back home. Being surrounded by questions and darkness and sometimes you start to get tired of reminding yourself of the answers. I am not going into details but let’s just say that in this world we live in, the deal is that sometimes you have to take the good with the bad and the weak with the strong. I don’t understand some of it but I understand most and I may not even be right because God’s ways is far and beyond ours. What he knows and sees is not what we think we know and see. Not everything is what it seems to be. When it comes down to it, the bottom line is that God knows every heart and every intention and on every side.
We cannot change the past, we cannot change anything really except maybe for the future by making better choices and choosing the righteous way over the unrighteous way. Everyone has that choice, it’s really up to all of us to choose who we will serve: the world or God. We can’t do half and half, if you serve the world you’re a enemy to God and so his wrath is upon those go against his very Word and very principles and very commandments. It says so in the bible, James 4:4 “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” Romans 1:18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;” This doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have mercy on those who against his very love or his word. He does have love for all, it says so in the bible, John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. “ 1 John 4:19 “We love him, because he first loved us.” Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Ephesians 3:19 “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
Even when Haman wanted to destroy Ester and her people, the Hebrews, God warned Haman through his wise men and his wife that if he should continue to try so, he will fail. Ester 6:13 “And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends everything that befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh, his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou has begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.”
We as followers of Christ also should have mercy and compassion and know that God loves all and wants all to come to him, 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
Everyone has their battles but everyone has to understand that if we are willing to know the Lord, God will reveal himself to you. He will. He said so himself, Revelations 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Open the door of your heart and stop listening to lies of the evil one!
I heard something on the news about how this young man came into a church and murdered 9 innocent people, in Charleston. In a CHURCH, in AMERICA. The..darkness that it reveals, the hearts of those who were not willing to open their heart to the love of God but willing to do something so sinful and so hateful to someone else. It breaks my heart that I see so many Christians being murdered and slain for their beliefs and now it’s happening right in America! It has happened everywhere else but now there is a shadow of a divide happening in this country. IT cannot happen. So many people have worked so hard for civil rights, rights that was freely given to us by God alone but taken from men because they thought they could just take it away. It’s happening again. A COUNTRY divided cannot STAND. We need God, WE NEED THE LORD CHRIST. We cannot back a way and say it’s too much because yes it is but we need some serious prayer warriors and warriors of Christ that would show love and commitment. We cannot give up, we cannot give in.
As Christians, as fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. We need to pray for the victims families that God Almighty will comfort them and protect them under his ever lasting wings. That the one who had no mercy and the one who had no heart but to hate that we pray for him as well. That God will open up his eyes to what he had done and he will come to know Christ fully. Also we pray for Christians, fellow believers of Christ Jesus, in other countries that are being persecuted for Jesus’s name, and that God will protect them and bring them out tribulation and strengthen them in their time of need. We pray for Israel, that you Lord God will protect and comfort your people, In JESUS NAME, Amen!
Draw close to the Lord, forsake the evil one lies, rebuke him in the name of Jesus. Don’t question God, just know that he sees all and knows all and loves all. We hope you have a wonderful day!
God bless you and God loves you
