From the very first light that broke the darkness at creation, God’s love shines upon us throughout the eons. He knew the plan of love in His heart. It encompassed all men through the ages, and all yet to come. His grand love desired to give us, His creation, His kids, a wonderful life filled totally with His love.
Yet He knew His enemy satan would do everything in its power to subvert, lie, pervert, and capture Gods children in its evil powers. So God sent His beloved Son Jesus to fight for and save His kids from slavery to sin. It was a huge sacrifice encompassing horrific pain and humiliation for Jesus, but He loves us so much He was willing to go through it for us.
I look at these truths, and I remember my life before I began to know Jesus~ the confusion, the lack of purpose, the problems that seemed overwhelming. It was such joy when He finally caught me and I held on to Him.
How thankful I am that I was given a choice: choose to follow the light and love of God or the dark evil ways of satan. One ends in eternal damnation of pain and hate; the other ends in love and heavenly joy.
I chose God, and now Holy Spirit is my guide through life. You see God did not create us and then throw us into the melee of life; when I accepted Jesus’ love sacrifice where He took my punishment due for my sinful ways, God sent me the Holy Spirit to be my guide, my counselor, teacher, strengthener, and my comforter, to lead me personally, lovingly, along the godly path throughout the rest of my existence on earth.
We will never fully understand God and His incredible ways; He is so much greater than us; can an ant understand us? God tells us~
Isaiah 55:8-9 (AMP)
8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
So we cannot expect to understand all God’s ways, but as we become acquainted with His character, we learn that we can trust Him even when we don’t understand. He is with us. He loves us. He takes care of us. When we take time to study the Bible, we can see God’s love woven into every chapter. The Bible is the Living Word of God, our instruction manual for a happy life. God shows us the way.
Have you found the truth? Are you choosing to allow God to be the Prime director of your life? Or are you still trying to do it all yourself?
