Put your Hope in the Living God...

It is impossible to deny the Living God.
No matter how hard you might try,
 it is impossible!

 God reveals Himself to us in so many ways: 
 through Nature:

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands."
(Ps 19:1)

He reveals Himself to us through God-breathed Scripture:

"This is my blood of the covenant, 
which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
(Matt 26:28)

He reveals Himself to us in our own design... 
(we are innately Spiritual creatures  and created to worship Him)


 He reveals Himself to us in History, in Miracles, and especially through the hope of the Cross and it's meaning.
  

If we are willing to accept  Jesus Christ into our lives, and allow the Lord to work in us, we encounter a loving, living God in all Fatherly forms.  As His children, he loves us, disciplines us, teaches us, guides us, protects us and interacts with us all the time. He places hope in our hearts and the desire to reach out to others. We are filled with the knowledge that God is in control, He's "Got it" and we merely need to rest in this knowledge and obey His teachings. 

I believe that the imperfections of this world are clearly designed in order for us to reach out to our Living God; to declare Him our Lord and Saviour, and to acknowledge our dependence on Him as He guides us along His path to Salvation.

Rest assured, God is alive and working in this world... His Holy Spirit is ever-present is in those who believe in Him. 
And for those who don't...

He's waiting with open arms...?
,
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I wil give you rest."
(Matt 11:28)


Prayer:
"Dear Lord, thank you for offering us  your precious gift of Salvation, through no deeds of our own. Thank you that through the sacrifice of your son, Jesus Christ, we can come into your presence and learn to live this life. Thank you for loving us and never leaving us. What a blessing it is that we are able to reach out to you any time, any day, any hour, any circumstances, and that you will welcome us as we are. We love you, Lord. Amen"

  3. My new special verse is in Exodus 14:14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. It brought out a different side of our amazing Lord. He is Warrior for us!
