Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless. Isaiah 40:21-23 NKJV
Almighty God is declaring His sovereignty over creation. There is no one like Him!
The Lord wants us to give Him that which is rightfully His, first place in our lives. He desires our devotion our worship and our love above all things.
Christianity is not a set of rules and rituals that must be followed to earn favor with God. If we could earn our way into relationship with Jesus His sacrifice would be meaningless!
God loves us. He wants us to love Him. The Christian life is lived out in relationship with Jesus. He does want us to obey His commands, but not out of fear. He does not want us to be afraid He will turn His back on us.
The marriage relationship exemplifies what Jesus wants with us. My wife and I love each other very much. There are things she expects from me. There are things I expect from her. We do them out of love for each other. Not out of fear one of us will leave.
God loves you more than anyone can. He will never stop loving you. He will never leave you. He will be with you when you get out of bed in the morning. He will be with you when you lay your head down at night.
Jesus will walk with you through the trials and hardships of the life He gave you. He will rejoice with you during seasons of triumph and success.
If you have never surrendered your life to Jesus what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for a sign from God? Are you waiting for evidence He is who He says He is? God has already provided those things.
The creatures that inhabit our world could not have evolved by random chance and natural selection. God created them. The universe was not created by spontaneous combustion. The Lord spoke it into existence!
Creation has a creator. His name is Jesus. He is the eternal Son of God. He is God. He is waiting for you to incline your heart towards Him. He is waiting to show you how much He loves you!
In your heart you have always known God created all things. Do not try to convince yourself there is any other way you could exist. A personal loving God created you to know what true love is!
Turn to the lover of your soul today. Go out into your world and speak the truth of God to people who need Jesus. Live for the God who gave you the gift of life!
