Hello everyone! Welcome today, to Moments Spent with God! I am so happy to have you at the Risen Hope Ministries and I pray that your day will truly be touched by a powerful God, who is more than able to help you rise above the despair in your life!
You know…how often do we compare the personality of God, to the way the world responds to our problems? We think that the moment we do something wrong…God is going to strike us down and walk away from us; when all along, He is the only One who will walk beyond every mistake we make, to love us and see the need of our heart.
I remember many times in the past, when it seemed as if one problem would follow another in my life. After a while of experiencing so many problems at once, I actually began to convince myself that there was something wrong with me and that I wasn’t worthy of God’s love anymore. Later…down the road, I came to see that this was what Satan wanted me to believe, as a means of placing a wedge between me and God.
How is it that we allow our thoughts to be carried away, into thinking that just because God is a powerful god; that He is out to hurt us? Don’t we realize that God was the One, who was more than willing to give up His only Son, to die on the cross for our sins? How could He show so much love and then turn around and abandon us, when we need Him the most?
You know…there is one thing that has helped me to see God, for who He really is and that is to get to know Him, through a personal relationship. So many times, we can find ourselves in the dark with God because we haven’t truly come to know Him, for the God He is. When we can truly experience a close relationship with God and get to know and experience His love, in a very real way; then His love will remove these doubts and negative thoughts from our minds.
There was a time in my life, when I was going through some very difficult and overwhelming moments…moments that made me feel as if I was slowly sliding over a cliff to total destruction. On top of that; it seemed as if darkness continually surrounded me, to the place, where I began to even wonder if God was still there.
Finally, one day I decided to take the Bible and make it my survival manual. I would search and search for verses that could somehow answer the questions to the problems that were weighing me down. As time passed, I found that as I got to know God and the promises He had set before me; that the negative thoughts were beginning to fade into the background of my life.
You see…I found that we need to know that perfect love that can never compare to any other so-called love. When we can truly see God, for the way He longs for us to see Him; then we won’t have one doubt in our mind or heart; that He won’t be there to take care of us.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
