Well, in my opinion, I think that what it means for God is guide you; is to allow for Him to not only use you and your testimony to impact and inspire others, but also to mold us into the person He has called us to be. Guidance from the Lord doesn’t just mean asking Him, “Where should I go?” but also “Lord, How can you use me to impact the people and the world around me?”
By asking God where He wants us to go, in my opinion, causes us as Christians to recognize that we don’t always know where we are going and that sometimes we need a “guide” that can show us the way to go. When I read His Word, it feels so amazing to be able to use it as a sort of “compass” that continues to “show” me not only how to live as a Christian but also how to treat others.
Sorry, for not posting last week. As the month of February comes to a close, I can’t help but be amazed at how much God’s love for humanity is never-changing and He still waits for us to come back to Him. God’s love for humanity and its people is more than we can imagine and we should all feel grateful that we have a God that loves us and is always ready to receive us in our times of need.
What does God’s Unending Love look like for us as sinners?
Well, God’s unending love for sinful people is beyond imagination, so much so that nothing on Earth can keep us from His love as described in Romans 8:38-39. As the Apostle Paul said there is nothing, even the sins that we committed in the past, are committing or will commit in the future that can separate us as fallen people from God’s marvelous love.
To me, the fact that there is nothing physical or even death itself that can separate us from God’s love is amazing because that should show us as Christians and as people how much we mean to the Creator.
“38. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39. nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Read More »
Well, to me, giving it all to God means that I need to relinquish all of my pain, regrets, sadness, guilt, shame and even the good things and lay them all at His feet. But also, it means that whatever I may be going through, I can give it over to God knowing that if I can’t handle it; by faith, God will get me through it. In the Bible, we see many times the prophets and later the Apostles urging us to give all that we have to the Lord.
But here’s the question: Why do we hang onto the things of the past? In Psalms 55:22, it is telling us to cast all of our burdens onto God and He will sustain us.
“22.Cast your burdens on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”Read More »
Well, in today’s society; people don’t use the word “adultery”, but use “cheating”. But God doesn’t see it that way, He sees “cheating” on your husband/wife as a violation of His covenant with humanity and a violation of the purpose of marriage. So, how does God describe adultery and how is it a sin against our bodies and God? In Matthew 5:28, Jesus describes what adultery is.
“But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
To some people, the word means that whatever you are attempting to do won’t work and to some; it is too difficult for them and they give up. But let me tell you a secret; it’s not Impossible; that is just the enemy saying, “That’s right. Whatever God promised you is too much for someone who has committed such terrible sins” But what does God say? Let’s turn to Jeremiah 1:5 to see what Jesus says about our self-worth.
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born I consecrated you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
