Hello everyone! Welcome back to “Moments Spent with God!” I pray that you’re having a great day and that you’re truly experiencing the presence, of a powerful…loving God!
Today, as I have been spending some quiet moments alone with God; He’s been reminding me of a love that can never compare to any so called love we experience here on earth. What amazes me; is that we tend to feel that God takes His love away from us and abandons us at a time, when we need Him the most…when God is actually reaching down, with a very humble spirit from the heavens…just to say He loves us.
You know…I have come to see a God that is not only rich in power and strength but a God, who sees me, as something more important than Himself. On this earth, we see people who connect to their riches and through this experience, we also see these people, as uncaring and more attached to their worldly goods, rather than reaching out and loving others; but with God, I see a god that is much greater than anything on this earth but yet He takes the time, to bend down from the heavens and care for us.
There have been times in my own life, when I have felt as though God walked away and left me for good. Never did I ever think that He might just be in the background of my life…working out a plan to rescue me, from the very difficult moments that I faced. It was only at a time, when I fell powerless to the floor; that I began to see God, as a god that was willing to go beyond Himself and save a retched soul as mine.
We can never compare to this powerful God we serve. You know…God doesn’t have to take the time to help us but He does. I have come to see God, as a god who doesn’t misuse His power but rather, He uses His power to help us, in any way He so chooses. The light that surrounds His presence becomes the light that opens up a darkened pathway, so we can safely leave these moments that are attempting to take us down for good. God’s strength becomes the crutch that supports us and keeps us lifted up, so we can keep pressing on. God’s peace shelters us and keeps our emotions from getting out of control; so we can hear the quiet whisper of His voice within our spirits, as He gently leads us away from the snares that can lead us to total destruction. Just through these things alone, I see a God, whose power is used; out of great love…to keep me from ever leaving His side. Isn’t that an amazing love? So what we can say out of all of this today; is that when the world misuses their power and prestige, for their own selfish reasons; God uses His power…not for Himself but for us…the ones He truly loves the most.
You know…when we think about it…who are we, in comparison to this powerful and mighty God we serve? Even though God has the power to rule this universe; His love for us is so great that He is more than willing to bend a knee and care for a broken spirit…wounded from life’s battles. Now that we know of God’s true love for us, let me ask you…why would we ever imagine that this loving and compassionate and very giving God would ever abandon us, at a time, when we need Him the most?
Today, I pray that we will come to truly connect with a real love...a love that is more than willing to use the power that He holds within Himself, as a means of keeping us away from evil, while drawing us even closer to His side.
Have a great day & God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
