1 John 2:16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.
1 John 4:11-13 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.
Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. There is only one person who knows tomorrow. Anything that happens to us, good or bad, happens in the permissible space. Nothing Satan can do without God giving it a tick. If one were to think there are things the devil do without it being permissible by God, we are indirectly saying the devil triumphed over God.
Isaiah 57:1 Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come.
Sometimes we shy away from admitting that God allowed the situation because we think that will be equal to blaming God. What we need to understand is that wrong and right belongs to God. What seems to be wrong to us, is still His righteousness. Psalm 12:5 The LORD replies, “I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do.”
Satan can delay things but can never stop what God has destined to happen in certain way. We can pray for things and God changes his mind but all still happens in His permissible space and time. Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
We serve God almighty, El Shaddai, the self sufficient and all knowing God. He is the beginning and the end.
Moses asked God “Who should I say sent me” God said, tell the people who I am is not conceivable. God did not want Moses to be limited in understanding who He is. Exodus 3:14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”
John 6:60-61 Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying; who can understand it?” When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, “Does this offend you? Every time you want to complain, remember that God is aware. Not that you must be scared of him but remember that He knows your pain and He can take it away any time. God trust that you will look up to Him for strength in times of hardship. 2 Corinthians 12:9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. Murmuring is no different from lack of faith and trust to towards God. It’s like saying God is not capable. After all God has done for the Israelites, they continued to complain and God was angry with them. Numbers 11:1 Soon the people began to complain about their hardship, and the LORD heard everything they said. Then the LORD’s anger blazed against them, and he sent a fire to rage among them, and he destroyed some of the people in the outskirts of the camp.
Church has become a laughing stock, pastors using the pulpit for personal gain. We need to repent and restore our relationship with God for a better tomorrow. Deuteronomy 31:16,18 The LORD said to Moses, “You are about to die and join your ancestors. After you are gone, these people will begin to worship foreign gods, the gods of the land where they are going. They will abandon me and break my covenant that I have made with them. At that time I will hide my face from them on account of all the evil they commit by worshiping other gods.
Whenever people turn away from God, terrible things happens to them. Today you hear topics where people discuss if God really exist and we are surprised why so many bad unexplainable things happens in our society. Others find pleasure in ridiculing God’s elect.
