Looking all around me whilst I take my regular daily walk
I see in nature all that the atheist says that is not of God
I ponder on the COMPLICATED theory of evolution and man’s ongoing and ever present STRUGGLE to prove the NON-EXISTENCE of the ALMIGHTY!
Thinking and imagining God patiently watching ALL activities on His Earth and watching from generation to generation, for us to turn back to His loving arms in Grace.
As usual I converse with Him in my heart…….so many questions!
ME: ….Lord, you are indeed patient with the human race, is this because of your promise to Noah?
GOD: …..My dear child! This is my nature and I took Jesus at His word AT CALVARY that “they do not know what they are doing”
ME: --- Forgive me if I seem to be too inquisitive but I need to know and understand so much that seem confusing to me but, why are the righteous of this world suffering with the wicked?
Is this a case of the wheat and the chaff GROWING together?
Sometimes I just wish thunder direct from Heaven striking and roasting up obviously wicked and evil masterminds on Earth, because they even BOAST IN THEIR WICKEDNESS!
GOD:…….. My dear, dear child! It hurts me to see you all hurt so, but in the beginning it was not so and do leave all judgment to me but continue to do your bit by making the good news available to as many as you meet on your life’s journey.
ME:……….Yes I understand that Lord, and am ever so sorry.
I remember in the book of Genesis you looked at all that you created and declared that ‘IT IS GOOD’!
But I still say that you can stop all suffering and pain at your will, with your spoken word and command
Why wont you?
AFTERALL, JESUS WALKED ON WATER AND SPOKE TO THE
RAGING SEAS TO BE STILL AND THEY INSTANTLY, OBEYED!
GOD: --- Oh you dear child, I made you in my image and
likeness, with your very OWN INTELLECT AND
UNDERSTANDING but I want you to put it in mind
that in all that, I gave you a will to choose, a choice
between good and evil and you know that I am a
just God, my word will not change, FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH AND THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE!
I do not work magic, I am no magician nor do I have a wand to wave,
I operate by my statutes as a JUST God and have laid down principles,
JUST FOLLOW THEM!
ME:--- Lord, I believe I see what you mean but how
about the righteous and the very elect who do your will , morning , noon and night they obviously obey your command in all that they do, why do they have to share in all the
pain? Why? Sometimes the ones who are wicked seem to prosper and have a good laugh at the expense of your people
GOD: --- Oh child! Jesus suffered much more having not EVER been a sinner!
Not being one in His conception, His birth, words or deeds, yet He was not accepted, was disgraced, spat at, ridiculed and NAILED TO A TREE!!!
He was called all sorts of names and his name is
still being maligned today by many around the
world, even His very own are deceived into doing
He came- freewill, He suffered and died
He rose up again to show that His is ALL the power
and also to save you all from certain death and in
it all , He did not make fake promises he did not
say it was going to be a smooth bump free ride nor
will the bed be of roses If you follow
Him(remember John 15:18-21)
Rather he promised to always be with you when you make that decision to do so—Matthew 28:20
Remember, your adversary never sleeps nor slumber and he is always prowling around the earth, looking for easy prey (and not so easy ones too!) to devour, because he is very angry that he does not have a second chance to come to repentance like you
ME:--- I see! But Lord----! It is so difficult sometimes, especially when there is a bombardment of attack, prejudice, problems and pain when there seems to be no one and no help in sight
When all friends and family desert, no one and nobody to call my own!
GOD: --- I feel the pain too, dear child, don’t you know?
Remember Jesus wept in the Bible!
I have already told you that a man´s foes shall be those of his own household-DONT YOU EVER, FORGET THAT!
There are times when you MUST go through the refiner ´s fire like gold to be made pure.
I am pure and holy, so no impurity or unholiness must be found in my own.
I am always with you even those times when you walk through the fire of adversity and it does not burn you, remember the three Hebrew boys in Daniel’s time in captivity in the Bible; my angels carry you in their arms right through it.
Even when everyone deserts you, I AM ever present in your very need.
I AM THE COMFORTER, YOU KNOW!
ME:--- Oh my God! It is ever so comforting to know all this, reassuring and encouraging,
I move on now fully recharged and ready for the next level.
P-L-E-A-S-E! P-L-E-A-S-E! and P-L-E-A-S-E Lord,
let me always know that you are around me whenever
there are problems and crisis in my life, often times I do not know if you are still with me or not!
I always feel I have done something terribly wrong to you and you have decided to give me up for terrible punishment!
GOD: --- Wow! How can you think such my child?!
So long as you walk in my statutes and in my will, always doing, everything that I command you to do, lo I will be with you always, even until the end of time;
please me all the days of your life, for this purpose were you created
I CAN NEVER LEAVE NOR CAN I FORSAKE YOU,
I love you too much!
As for you being aware of my presence,
You must always listen for the still small voice
Because I ALWAYS TALK TO YOU!
In your waking and sleep moments, in your dreams, in my word (The Bible), through others around you, even in situations and circumstances that you pass through, I pass a message to you---you must always listen and pay attention to the details around you, then will you know that,
Each and every day
I have a word for you;
Take time to study my word and the book of Job in particular, then will you understand better how,
MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS; NEITHER MY THOUGHTS YOURS!
ME:--- Lord! I thank you so very much for being my God!
Now I know that I am truly loved without conditions especially not by the world’s standards of being rich, famous, strong or brilliant!
I come to you Lord, as I am!
