God Is Loving, Merciful and Faithful

God Is Loving, Merciful and Faithful

Our God is so loving, so merciful, so faithful. Even when we become too discouraged to believe, God does not forget what He promised you. The true God can not make a promise to you and not follow through on it. Never, ever!

“Then God remembered Rachel; he listened to her and enabled her to conceive.” (Genesis 30:22, NIV)

How to find inner peace with god

How to find inner peace with god

Do you feel discouraged today? Is your life not what you envisioned or planned it to be? Have you prayed, believed and worked hard, and things did not worked out as planned?

Are You Entering “Never-Land”

Now you’re probably thinking, “I’m never going to be happy again. I’ll never be married. I’ll never accomplish my dreams”, I’ll never get a promotion” ….

Remember today, not only does God remember you, He remembers the promise He placed within you. And God would not place a desire in your heart if He was not going to let the desire come to pass. It takes patience (faith) on your part and in His time will make your dream a reality.

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:4 NKJV

He knows what He’s destined you to do. You may have already said, “Forget it; it’s never going to happen.” The good news is that you don’t have the final say. God has the final say, and He says, “What I started in your life, I’m going to finish.” That dream you gave up on, God didn’t give up on. He remembers you, and He is with you, leading you and guiding you to the place of victory.

I produced a video to the classic song “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel. It reminds me of how God is in the midst of your life and how deep His love is for us. The songs always lifts my spirits-Enjoy and experience the love and presence of God in your life!

 

God Helps Those

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

I’m sure you heard the saying “God helps those who help themselves.” I have heard this saying so many times and mostly in the context of “unless you do something to remedy your situation, God will not help at all.”  I’m sure it was said innocently and more so out of what religion may of taught or even perhaps what you heard someone else saying. If you think God Helps Those

about the meaning, in essence when one says “God helps those…”  then if you offer prayers to God and your situation doesn’t change, then of course you must not be doing enough. It’s your fault.  In other words you have to do more and then God will help you…as the saying goes, God helps those who helps themselves after all right? This type of believing leads to condemnation.

The saying “God helps those who helps themselves” does not appear anywhere in the bible but yet a lot of people end up condemning themselves when they try to live by these words. This is NOT what God is about. He is not about condemnation but rather about grace.

God Helps Those That Are Helpless

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. (John 15:5 NKJV)

This bible verse indicates that God wants you to depend on Him. He wants you to “abide in Him” and then He will “abide in you.” He wants to by part of your life and wants you to have a relationship with Him. But only if you desire to have a relationship with Him will God become God Helps Those That Are Helpless

part of your life. It’s your free will to decide. He will not interfere.

God also makes it clear that without Him “you can do nothing.” Jesus Christ wants you to rest in Him not on your own devices. So as far as the saying “God helps those that helps themselves,” I would reject this entirely and instead realize “I [you] can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13 NKJV)

So if your situation has you feeling helpless and your are crying out God please help me, then find rest and peace of mind knowing that an abundance of God’s love, grace and favor is upon you each and every day. Just come to God as you are.

 

How Can I Find God

How Can I Find God

In the heart of every human being is a God-shaped void. A void that can only be filled by the God who created us. Churches around the world are filled with people crying out “how can I find God”. And though God is completely aware of us down to the finest details of our lives, for a variety of reasons, many cannot seem to “find Him”.

Help Me Find God

Depending on others to help one find God is doomed to be a futile venture. This is because, God is not lost. In fact, if our spiritual eyes were opened, we would find that God is surrounding us every moment of every day, waiting for us to invite Him into our lives. Contrary to what many churches teach, and what many people erroneously believe, God is not sovereign in our lives unless we want Him to be, and make it known to Him that we How Can I Find God

do.

In the third chapter of Revelation verse 20, Jesus said, 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.”

Finding God Is Easy

Kind of amazing that the One who created all things, including us, is putting forth an invitation like this. Obviously, if He is standing at the door of your heart, you don’t need to go looking for Him. If God is knocking, then it must be up to us to open the door to let Him in. The problem with the request, “How can I find God”, is that in reality, no one can help you find Him because He is always there with you.

Finding God is easy, learning what He is like is another matter. As in any relationship, the only way to get to know someone is to spend time with them. And there is one prerequisite God has for getting to know Him, God said, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

God wants you to get to know all about Him. He has completely revealed Himself through Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “he that has seen me has seen the Father”. All that we need to know concerning what God is like was revealed through Jesus. If you really want God in your life, get to know Jesus. As He said, He stands at the door of your heart and knocks. All you have to do is talk to Him in prayer, He will do the rest.

Keep in mind, as in any relationship, it will take time for you to get to know Him. But if you are faithful to seek above all things to get to know Him, He will surely reveal Himself to you, and you will never again have to say, “Help me find God.”

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7 & 8

 

 

 

 

Where Do I Find God

Where Do I Find God

We have all heard it said, “God is every­where”. Well if that is  true then where do I find God? Find­ing God on a per­sonal level, and estab­lish­ing a rela­tion­ship with Him requires some effort on our part. The good news is, God knows you! In fact He knows every­thing about you there is to know. It is also true, that regard­less of what you may or may not have done through­out your life, God loves you and wants noth­ing but good things for you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to pros­per you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jere­miah 29:11 IV)

Help Me Find God.

What you may not know, is that God, even though He is “all pow­er­ful”, does not inter­fere in your life unless you ask Him to. God cre­ated you as a free willed being, and as much as much as He may want to help you, He can only do so with your permission.

So you may ask where can I find God? He is by your side and He may want to help you, but He can only do so with your per­mis­sion. This is because He is not a mas­ter manip­u­la­tor, nor is He a pup­peteer who uses His might and power to force you to do His will. But He did extend a won­der­ful invi­ta­tion to any­one will­ing to take Him up on it.

The Bible says,

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8 (KJV)

What’s really great about this invi­ta­tion is that there are no pre­req­ui­sites or con­di­tions attached to it. All we have to do is make up our minds that we want to get to know Him.

“But how do I draw near to Him?” you ask. The answer is very sim­ple. First, keep reading..
