Endless Possibilities

Something to think about.

Endless Possibilities

12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. 13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. 1 Corinthians 2 12-13 

There is a space, a divide between us who believe in Christ and those who don’t. We who do, can hear and understand what God has said and is saying. those that don’t, though hearing can not comprehend what the Lord has said and is saying.  The bridge that reaches across that divide is the Spirit of God He is the one that opens our minds to understand the call, will, purpose, glory, love, and sovereignty of God.  Without the Spirit of God, the world is left lost abandon and confused because it can never understand the way the world works. They’re missing the most vital part, the Spirit of God which makes the world make sense. Without it we are, but a mass of humanity headed for our inevitable self-destruction. The Spirit of God opens our minds to the reality of a future with a God of boundless, endless beautiful possibilities.

My Voice

Something to think about.

Voice

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27

Do you know the voice of Him who has called you, is calling you? Do you know the voice of God? Some may even wonder does God even speak anymore? Jesus rose from the dead; that did not occur so that He would be silent and hidden. He was raised from the dead to live and to be the first of the resurrection. The voice of God is not a singular sensation. It can be seen in the sunrise it can be heard in the quietest of moments. It is the idea that wakes you up in the middle of the night. It is at the moment of inspiration that moves you to action. It is the thought that comes out of the blue. It is wisdom. It is the bible. It is a voice the speaks in words. The voice of God is truth. The voice of God is in everything that is good and just. You see the voice of God is everywhere we just need to recognize, hear, respond to it and acknowledge it.

No Other

Something to think about.
No Other

““Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”
Isaiah 45:22 NIV

The message and the call are still the same God does not change.  He is still calling man to salvation. He is still God singular in His deity. His call is for all nations, tribes, and peoples. There is a satisfying peace, joy, and exuberance in knowing that God is unmovable; that He is the solid rock of our existence.

Seek the Lord

Something to think about.

Seek the Lord

“Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 NKJV

God is calling to you. He is doing all He can short of taking away your free will. For you to turn from your wicked ways and be saved. The principal part of these verses is “while He may be found”. If you turn from your wicked ways and repent, God will be gracious in mercy and forgive you.

There will come a time in your life when God will stop calling, wooing you. His call for you to repent is not life long. There is a moment when God will leave you to your own devices, leave you to your own righteousness. Then when your time comes to stand before God, you will only have your righteousness to justify yourself before a perfect God. He will judge you by His perfect standard, do you really want to do that?

 

Who Do You Call?

Something to think about.

Who Do You Call?

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”

Who Will Go

Something to think about.
Who Will Go?
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:“Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8 NKJV

If God would ask you that question how would you respond. Is He asking you now? As you look at the world around you, at your world in your city, town, street and nation do you hear God calling you? Can you see the sinfulness of your neighbor and not feel the pain of God? Do you cry out to God seeking salvation for your world, asking Him to send someone to save your neighbor? Realize your are Isaiah, and God is asking “who will go for us?” Who will answer the call.
