Part 3 We make choices; but what does God say?
Friends, God loves us so much that when he created the Earth in the universe, and the heavens … Oh, glory be to God; HE did it all because he SO loves us!
There is evidence of God’s Love for us!
When God created the Earth; He made it rich for us! God put nutrients in the soil to sustain life for us to live and to enjoy our life.
God made the soil! The Created soil; it has nutrients in it, that will allow a tree to grow! If you want evidence of God’s love for you? On the next HOT day, seek shade; and find it under a tree growing in nutrient rich soil that God made for us; and which gives us shade when hot days become unbearable, we can seek to find what God has provided.
More evidence of God’s love and devotion for us is seen in a tree growing in nutrient rich soil! A tree gives us wood to build shelter; and wood / fuel to stay warm by a cozy fire.
God has supplied all our needs; and we see evidence of God’s every provision just by looking at God Created Soil! In the soil, we plant seeds; and from the seeds we grow food to eat!
Friends, as encouragement to you to trust God as your source of everything think of a corn seed and take a close look with faith in the life that’s inside! How much more powerful is the life that lives in US through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit of God !
Compare your “Limited-Vision” of perspective to God’s All-Knowing thoughts, plan and purpose to get us to eternity! Know that God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts. As a corn seed has the corn-stock, the corn-tassel, the ear-of-corn, the corn-silk; and all of the kernels of corn that we eat and also are able to grow more corn by; so is the life in the SEED that God plants in us when we believe!
We may not see the living roots that are also all contained in that one corn-seed, but we know that when planted in nutrient rich soil, God sends the rain and the sun, and it grows! So it is with the faith that God plants in us to believe! This is a picture of the power of the life of God, whom becomes our Father whom lives in Heaven when we place our faith and hope in Christ Jesus! This is life in God, whom lives in you, through the Holy Spirit, when you believe in Jesus as your Savior; and ask him to be your Lord.
In closing, if we ask Jesus to be our Lord, and we trust God is our source, let us take DELIGHT in our FAITH, because we know our faith pleases God.
And, not to leave out this encouragement…
We’re all growing by the grace of God in our faith. Our human nature may fail at times, but the Holy Spirit will never fail. Follow the Spirit of God and LET your life sing Honor and Praise and Thanksgiving to God.
To grow means that sometimes we make mistakes as a human, but that doesn’t mean that the life in the seed won’t grow. Just like a seed has to be taken out of the bag and placed in the soil …Plant your faith in God’s Word and experience life in Christ grow.
A mistake does not cancel out The Graces of God. We’re learning how to do better next time. Don’t limit yourself based on yesterday, don’t get bogged down in the yesterday’s.
Today it’s a brand new day. Every minute of every hour of every day, Let YOUR Praise to God lift you UP to the place God wants you to be WITH HIM.
Thank you Jesus, we can say “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
I hope this is a blessing of encouragement to wait upon the Lord in faith. Increase your knowledge in the Word of God & gain understanding, by experience, as you seek God 1st and grow in the Way Jesus has Made for you.
What if the Corn Seed denied the life inside to remain the shell …to deny self nature, it is to experience spiritual life nature.
The old has passed; the new has come. Jesus is: The Truth, The Way and The Life …
Life and blessings are found In Christ when we seek the life in God Himself.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me (John 14:1, KJV).”
Love in Christ,
