How to Live for God

Christian Youth learn how to live for God and experience His unconditional love for you.

Living a life for God is one of the difficult tasks for today’s younger generation. This world is filled with sin, pleasure and everything that could drag people from getting near to God or living for God. One of the biggest questions that most Christian Youth have in their mind is that it is possible to live for God in this sinful world? If so How to live for God?

God has a mighty plan over you and living for God means that you need to fulfill the expectation or plan which God has been set over you. This could be achieved only if you live for God or live with God. This world brings you forth several things taking you out of God’s plan in you, but God has given you all the strength to overcome these circumstances in your life. In Isaiah 41:10  fear not, for I am with you;  be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. This is a powerful verse which strengthens and encourages you in the face of trouble to live for God. You are in His hands, He will help you in the portions which you are struggling through.

Do the Will of God

To live for God the basic thing which you need to stick with it strongly is doing the will of God and having faith in God that whatever God does in my life will be for good. There is free will or God’s Will. You have choices to opt for whichever but the choice is yours. God send His son Jesus and He did the purpose of the Father.

When God touched Paul in Damascus the first thing which he asked “What should I need to do”. He surrendered completely to the Lord and God used him mightily in his hands. Throughout his life he did the Will. Doing the will of God is not so easy you have to sacrifice, you have to give up your desire but the end is going to be mighty.

Completely Surrender Yourself

To live with God doing His will you need to surrender yourself and believe God is Hope. Surrender in sense 100% surrendering yourself not even holding 1% of your desires with you. Just ask God to take control of your Life. He is better driver than anyone else. If you given your life completely to His hands He will take full control of your life, Satan can’t drive you anywhere when you in His hands.

Confession of Sin

Confession of sin glorifies God because if you excuse your sin, you absolve yourself of responsibility and blame God for letting you get into a mess. First John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The Greek word for “confess” is homologeo, meaning “to say the same thing.” To confess means to agree with God that sin is all our fault and to repent.  1 John 1:7

 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

Being Holy

This is something very hard when you are getting close to God. As a Christian Youth when you chose to go with God, you will be the one who will be more tested by the Satan to make you to sin and get away from God. But God expect you to be holy. Be holy, because I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:16). God wants a holy vessel for Him to use you mightily for His Glory. God can’t dwell in a place that is without holy so if you want God to dwell with you, it is 100% necessary that your vessel needs to be cleansed and be holy. When you are holy God does His fullest will over you and make you  blessed for millions of people.

So if you do all the above said things in your life, God dwells among you, He will be  taking full control of your life and He steers your vehicle where He want you to be. There is one life and it will end very soon what we do for Christ is going to remain forever when we go for the judgment. Amen!

God and Time : Wait On God’s Perfect Timing

Waiting is one of the most difficult things to do, whether we’re waiting for a bus, a phone call or an answered prayer. God and time is about patience , obedience and trusting Him.  We become impatient and wonder why everyone else is holding us up and keeping us from getting what we want.  It seems like the more we want something, the harder it is to wait – and we even get impatient with God!

But we have to remember that God’s timing is different than our own.  He sees things from a different perspective and sees the whole picture, not just what we want, but what is best for us in the grand plan for our lives.  All is part of a divine order and will be done in its own right and proper time.  Of course, when we are hoping, praying and waiting for something, it’s easy to forget this.  After all, waiting is “remaining inactive in one place while expecting something.”  And being inactive means feeling powerless and at the mercy of the world – nobody likes that feeling.  But we must keep in mind God’s greater plan and his perfect timing:

“We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.”
(Romans 8:28)

“Trust in Him at all times, O people.”
(Psalm 62:8)

What are YOU Waiting For?

What are you waiting for in your life?  A new job, financial security, healing, a baby, a restored marriage?  It seems that no matter where we are in our lives, we are waiting for something in the future.  Our lives are never stagnant; if we are moving forward, there is always something to expect or wait for around the next bend in the road of our lives.

There are many stories of “waiting” in the Bible.  In some stories, the waiting seemed to last forever, while others only waited a few intense moments.  The key to waiting is not the length of time but how we handle the wait.  The Bible teaches us that we should “wait on the Lord.”  We must look with confidence and expectation toward the future, trusting that God will fulfill our waiting in good and proper time.

There are three actions that will help you wait on the Lord patiently and with faith, knowing and believing that He will help:

1.  Trust – If we doubt God’s willingness to hear and answer our prayer, we may begin to feel bitter when we think God has heard our prayer but is silent.  Scripture teaches us that God is unchangeable, which means He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and we can always rely on Him to provide the best possible path for our lives!  God said that He will never leave us or forsake us.  If He seems silent now, it is because He has another plan, different timing or a way to answer our prayer that has not been revealed to us yet.  We must trust in His plan.

2.  Resist – We must resist the temptation to take matters into our own hands.  Patience is powerful.  Having patience is essential in many circumstances and the Holy Spirit is here to fill us with this patience when we feel we cannot wait another minute on God.  The safest place we can rest is in God’s Will.  When we rest here, resisting temptation is easy.

3.  Pray – How many times have you given a prayer request to God and felt He was deaf?  During these times, you need to keep on praying, but pray the right way.  God always answers our prayers, but it may not be the way we want Him or expect Him to.  It may be a yes, a no or something better.  When we don’t immediately get the answer we want, we have a tendency to repeat the same prayer over and over until we either lose our voice or simply give up.  After we have given our need to the Lord, we must turn our request into a “Thank you,” and an attitude of expectancy, and say, “Not my will, but Yours, Lord.”  When we thank the Lord in advance for answering our prayers, it is an active display of our faith that demonstrates to God our confident expectation that His awesome power will provide for us.

This Prayer can help you as you wait on God’s perfect timing:

Dear Heavenly Father,
I have been waiting for ________________ for so long now, and I come before You today to ask your help.
I pray that You will increase my faith and patience so that I will put my whole trust in your perfect timing and plan for my life.
I will put my complete trust in You with confidence and eager expectation of Your answer, whatever that answer may be and whenever that answer may come.
Thank you that you are always with me.
Thank you that You hear my prayers and will answer in Your time and in Your way.
You, Lord, are without limits.
Thank You for Your unfailing word and that You always keep Your promises to me.
I believe with my heart, mind and soul Your plan for my life is the best one possible and I thank You for Your answer.
Being in Your will is the safest place I can ever reside.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Being With God : Every Moment With God is Precious

Being with God is precious. Most of us know that time with God can be uplifting and we sometimes vow to spend more time in the future praying or attending church so that we can draw closer to Him, but so often, life simply gets in the way.  We find ourselves thinking that the time we spend in church or at Bible study or even meditating in our own homes is time that could be spent doing other, more “practical” things that need to be taken care of.  What we need to remember is that every moment with God is special. Precious moments being with God we are developing an intimate relationship with Him.

Skipping prayer, church, meditation or Bible time for earthly things is turning your back on the one thing you need most in your life – the Lord’s guidance and blessings.  In fact, the more  practical things you have to take care of, the more need to have  God in your every day life!  God will help you to gain the earthly things you need through his guidance and blessings.  His power is a transformative power that means no moment spent with Him is wasted.

Besides, God is a constant presence even after prayer and praise has ceased.  He is an unwavering source of healing, harmonizing energy in our lives if we pray to Him and ask Him to enter our lives.  He will answer those prayers and become a precious presence that makes every aspect of our lives special – but we must open our eyes and our hearts to see it and feel it.

“Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually”.
1 Chronicles 16:11

We sometimes make the mistake of thinking that the experience of our Creator is only in the structured moments – formal worship ceremonies, prayer, reading the Bible – but any moment that acknowledges His hand in creation and the wonder of His love for mankind can be a moment of communion with His loving kindness.  These personal, private moments are just as precious in his sight as the grand gestures and hold great meaning.  There is an old Irish proverb that explains the importance of small moments in a day, and they sum up how God might look at these moments as well:

“…Take the time to be friendly, it is the road to happiness;
Take time to look around, the day is too short to be selfish;
Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul.
–     Irish Proverb

We could easily add, “Take time to admire nature, it is God’s handiwork,” and “Take time to thank God for this day, it is His precious gift to you,” and so many other phrases that would take just a few seconds out of the day.  Yet each would be a precious moment with God that would enrich your personal relationship with Him.

God is our strength, our comforter and our guide.  God’s presence is a constant and uninterrupted power.  We don’t have to wait for a clear, sunny day to experience our Creator.  He surrounds and enfolds us in his loving arms in countless ways that we only have to open our hearts and minds to, acknowledging just how precious each of those moments are to Him and to ourselves.

Be Blessed : God Wants to Bless Us with Prosperity

We all hope to prosper and succeed in life, and many of us pray that God will lead us on the right path to prosperity and success.  It’s wonderful to lay our requests at God’s feet and ask for His blessings, but we need to understand when we ask for these things that the world’s idea of prosperity is different from that of the Lord.  Prosperity is much more than just the trappings of material success, and God grants us His blessings so that we are enriched in ways that are far more important than monetary success.

One definition of the word blessings is “the infusion of something with holiness, divine will or hope.”  What a wonderful explanation of God’s blessings!  When we are blessed by God, we are showered with His holiness and divine will and given hope.  Being blessed means “to be highly favored by God,” and that is what will enable us to prosper in this world.

God blesses us with His kind of prosperity, which is having everything in our lives functioning correctly and in a right manner according to His Word.  Prosperity is well-being and growth toward Him. Prosperity is having true spiritual wealth.  When we have these blessings and prosperity, we are comfortable with what we have and know that we are fortunate to be sheltered by God’s love.  God isn’t magnified when His children are struggling, broken in spirit or disgusted with life.  He is glorified by our prosperity and the blessedness of our lives, which are achieved through His Grace.

God wants you to prosper in life and succeed at those things that are most important.  When we are blessed by Him, we are empowered to succeed in a right life, loving our neighbors and ourselves.  When we live such a life, the bounty we give is returned to us ten-fold by those around us and our Lord.

And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly.”
–    
2 Corinthians 9:8 

Notice that God’s Word doesn’t say you will have wealth in abundance, or power in abundance – but you will have His blessings so that you always have enough to share with others.  This is God’s wish for our lives – that we are rich in love, rich in charity and rich in our desire to shower our own blessings on others.  In this way, God allows us to prosper and grow.

Are you ready to accept the blessings of God and prosper in right living and loving kindness?  If so, simply pray to Him and ask for His blessings and His guidance – He will show you the way to true Prosperity and a Successful Life that will grace you now and in eternity.  His greatest blessing is forgiveness of your sins so that you are right with Him and worthy of His favor.  And with this forgiveness and His love, how can you not prosper?

See if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing of blessings.”
–     (Malachi 3:10)

Trust God : Keep the Faith During Challenging Times

Trusting in God is the only option that we can count on in hard times. Right now either start or develop a closer relationship with God. The only one you can totally trust and have complete faith in  is God. God is our constant companion, who leads us on a sure and steady path. The God who delivered you yesterday will deliver you from your hard times and circumstances today and tomorrow.  Keep the  faith.  God’s love and power and mighty presence empowers us to win over worry, doubt, fear and hard times.  God said, “that I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you”
— 1 Peter 5:7

God said that I am :

Jehovah Jireh: “I am your provider”
Jehovah Shamah: “I am there”
Jehovah Shalom: “I am your peace”

God’s mighty presence is with us in all circumstances and conditions at all times and in all places. Any adversity that we may face gives God the opportunity for us to experience a greater peace , love and understanding .

God never promised that we would be exempt from pain, sorrow or hard times, but He did promise to help us through those times if we place our trust in Him.

 “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord is the one who goes before you.  He will be with
 you; he will neither fail you nor forsake you.”
-Deuteronomy 31:8

God is faithful, reliable and dependable. Where God guides He will provide. You can’t count on anybody but God. He is our rescuer, protection, and provider.  When we experience hard times and struggle in our lives, God ask us to trust and honor Him as Jehovah Jireh the God who provides all that we truly need.

When we experience hard times and difficult situations it is very important to focus. It is human nature to focus on the words “Why”, “How”, “When” during  challenging times in our lives.  God want you to focus on Him- the “Who” that will help and see you through hard times and struggle.

No matter what you may be going through trust in God “Who” knows the end from the beginning and is the ultimate problem-solver and way maker. Focus on the “Who” which is God because our best days are ahead of us .God is still in control. Keep the faith and Believe in God.

Healing : God is a Healer

“Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and healing shall spring up quickly.”
– Isaiah 58:8

When someone you love is sick or when you are sick, you should pray for God’s healing power to wash over you. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t see a doctor or take full advantage of all of the opportunities that medical science has to offer.  Always consult with a medical professional regarding your health problems. I don’t recommend abandoning medical or surgical treatments and using only prayer; I feel that a complimentary approach is best. The combination of medicine and prayer can be very powerful and I think a lot of people today misunderstand and think that we can’t use both.

Through prayer, we acknowledge that there is a greater wisdom and higher power than anything on earth. We get in touch with that power and ask that god bring miracles and His love into our lives, but we don’t have to turn our backs on the rich and varied medical traditions available here on earth when we do pray, because God heals in many ways:

God heals through doctors and nurses. He has given these professionals their God-given talents and abilities so that, through them, he can touch the lives of people every day in millions of ways both great and small. It is one of the main reasons he creates each of us with unique talents and interests – so that each of us can become someone special and unique who will touch others and, in some cases, heal others.

So when we pray, we should pray that God will guide the hearts and hands of the doctors, nurses and surgeons who are taking care of our loves ones or ourselves.

God can perform miracles of healing. Although we may find it difficult to ask for a miracle, God rejoices in our faith when we believe that He can cure the hopelessly sick and He sometimes does perform miracles. Ask and don’t be afraid – God listens to our prayers.

God heals by providing comfort and strength. Not every patient recovers and not everyone is healed; that is what we sometimes find most unfathomable about God’s ways. While many people recover from an illness, some do not. But the power of prayer is amazing! Even doctors and researchers have confirmed that people who pray feel less pain and are stronger and more at peace than those who don’t. Perhaps we need to look at the power of prayer in this light – God heals us not only when He heals our illness, but when He touches us to take away the hurt and bring us spiritual comfort and ease. His love touches us not only physically but spiritually and emotionally.

Remember that God is the supreme healer and pray for His intercession:

Let Us Pray-  The God Who Heals

Dear Heavenly Father,

You are my help in every need. I know that nothing is too hard for you. Heavenly Father, I am praying and believing now for the complete healing and restoration of (fill-in-the-blank with your health concerns). Help those who are caring for me; guide their hearts and hands as they care for me. Grant me the peace and strength I need to cope in the days ahead.
Knowing my oneness with you, Heavenly Father, I experience true healing.
Thank you, Lord, for sending your word and your healing power.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

With absolute faith and trust in God, we affirm oneness with the mighty healing power of God. Thank You, God , for healing us in every needed way. We are healthy and strong because of  our Heavenly Father.

How to Listen to God

God is bigger than any problem we will ever face and He can guide us through all of our trials and sorrows, but first we must listen to Him.  We can talk to God any time and about anything – in fact, that’s sometimes the easy part. God wants us to listen to Him.  The challenge is in knowing how to listen to God.  Whether you are a teenager facing peer pressure or an adult facing chemical dependency, a life threatening disease, unemployment or loneliness, we can talk to God and reveal the burdens of our heart.  And God will listen to those sorrows and give us comfort!

But beyond simply confessing our sorrows and praying for comfort, the Lord wants us to ask Him questions.  When we ask for guidance or God’s direction, we are letting Him know that we seek the answers He is so anxious to give us.  What should I do?  How do I carry on?  What is Your will for my life?  These are all questions that God will answer if you are willing to truly open a listening heart!  God has all of the answers we need if we will only listen to Him.

Sometimes the answers we seek reveal themselves immediately, while at other times they come at a time and in a manner that’s unexpected and disconcerting.  We may struggle against what the answer is, but God’s love for us is patient – He will keep offering His answers and wait for us to listen.  He won’t abandon us if we refuse to hear the first time or even the tenth time!  You see, God loves us so much that He is willing to give us the answers over and over until we are ready to receive them.

But how do we learn to truly listen and accept God’s answers for our lives?  First, we must realize that listening so that we truly hear God’s call is the most important thing in our lives.  If we are too busy with the hustle and hurry of our everyday lives, we may not hear because God’s voice is drowned out by the world’s confusion.  You must set aside time to listen and hear.

“Be Still and Know that I am God.”
-Psalm 46:10 

We need to tune out the noise and distraction of this world and allow God’s voice to reach us within our hearts and souls.  It isn’t always easy to do this – we have to take the time to focus on God within this busy, noisy world.  But no matter what time of day or night we turn to Him with a listening heart, He will be waiting for you.

These simple steps will help you open up to what God wants to say:

1. Train yourself to hear the Lord by reading your Bible, which is the Word of God.  His Word will open your heart and your ears to the sound of His voice and His desire for you.

2.  Look for and listen to God’s words in the world around you.  As you open your heart, you will be amazed by the many signs of God’s love for you that surround you even in the gravest of circumstances.

3.  Give yourself over to God’s will.  You may hear the word of God and be afraid of what He has planned for you and you may want to turn away – but ignoring God’s plan when you have heard it is worse than never having heard it at all.  The most important part of hearing is truly listening to God!  And listening requires a heart and soul that are ready to receive God wholeheartedly.

Are you ready to listen to God?  Then talk to Him and open your heart so that it is ready when God speaks to you!

God is Always With You

Many of us have heard the poem about the man who walked along the beach and saw a second pair of footprints in the sand. He was told the second pair of footprints was God. But then he became angry, as he realized that there were times when only one set of footprints was there. Where was God for him them? “It was then that I carried you”” God replied. Learning to have that trust in God is so valuable not only for our Faith, but also our peace of mind. When you live knowing that you are held by the hands of God at all times,  you breathe a little easier, sleep a little sounder and worry just a little less?   Because you trust in God to always be there for you – and most importantly to never leave. God is always with you.

Psalm 71:5 says: “For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust from my youth and the source of my confidence.

” Perhaps you know someone in your life that has this trust in God that I speak of and you are reminded of what a powerful source God can be. Now does this mean that life is always smooth? Does this mean that life is always full of joy and things always turning out exactly as we’d like? Well, it probably doesn’t. But when you have God in your life – that trust in God is a bigger winning than any lottery winnings ever could be. The man or the woman that wins the lottery can spend down their winnings in a year or several years. The good job you have can go away. People can and do let us down. But we can trust that God will always be there. God is always with you through the storms and the rain.

But not only will God be there through the “storms and the rain,” He’ll also be there through the good times too. Sometimes it is during the bad times that we feel our Faith is the most tested. These times temptations come for us to truly live our Faith and not take an easy way out. Do you still continue to tithe your income even after getting a big raise? Or would you take a luxury vacation if it only meant lying to a loved one? When you have many of the “good things” in your life there are two types of people: the one that is eager to share this life with others and the person who is completely afraid that something could come and take this good life away from them. The person eager to share the good life trusts in God and is generous and kind. They help others in their church and community. The person who is afraid others would take “the good life” away from them through trickery not only doesn’t trust other people – but they don’t trust themselves and most importantly they don’t have that deep trust in God. If they could open their hearts to have a trust in God they would feel peace and could enjoy their good lives and would feel inspired to help others in the individual way that means the most to them — not in a way that feels forced or false.

Psalm 37:5 says “Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.”

When you trust in God, you know that no matter what comes: everything will be alright. No matter what type of trouble you are carrying God will help you carry it.God is always with you to see you through.

Grace of God

People talk a lot of about the Grace of God and being touched by God’s Grace, but it’s one of the most difficult concepts for most of us to understand.  After all, how can we grasp the concept of being the recipients of such an amazing and wonderful gift as the Grace that is God’s forgiveness of our sins when we are so undeserving?  And what does that Grace do to change the reality of our daily lives anyway?  The answers are amazing and truly reflect just how much God loves us and the great good He desires for us.

God’s Grace was given to us even before we were born, at the very beginning of time, so we know that it isn’t based on whether we’ve earned it or if we’ve done something to earn it:

“This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.”
( 2 Timothy 1:9)

It’s so wonderful that God has always loved us and always will, and freely gave us this gracious, bountiful gift.  It’s an unearned blessing, a gift from our Lord and Savior that we received before we even looked for it.  God’s will for you is absolute good.  I know this is true for myself, and I also know it is true for every person on Earth.  God’s love is unconditional a Grace available to everyone, at all times and in all circumstances.  No matter who we are or what we’ve done!

That’s right – you’ve already “earned” God’s Grace simply by being a precious, individual creation of God.  Simply by existing as His creation, you are deserving of His Grace !  Nothing you do or do not do can remove that Grace from your life.  It is present here, now and always. Through God’s Grace, you are accepted and loved in every moment. Through God’s Grace you continually blessed – and our knowledge of this constant blessing is what can change the reality of our daily lives.  What could possibly bring us more joy and peace than knowing that nothing can separate us from God’s Grace?  No matter how low we fall or how high we climb, His Grace will surround us.

“Let us therefore approach the throne of Grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
( Hebrews 4:16)

 

When we need God’s Grace and loving kindness, we can rest assured that it will be there for us.  We will be enfolded in it and can rely on it to carry us through no matter how difficult our trials, because that Grace is sufficient for every need.  When we have God’s Grace, we don’t need the forgiveness of others or the understanding of men.

We have all that we need to carry us through the problems in our lives, and the realization that our God has showered us with His Grace all our lives and He will never withhold it should embolden us – it is our guarantee that we can do anything !  With the Grace of God shielding us, what amazing things we can do with our own lives and in the lives of others, what riches we can share !  That Grace gives meaning and glory to our lives as members of the body of Christ’s church on earth – we should share that Grace with others. It is all that we will ever need to find peace in our lives, and by sharing it with those around us, that joy and peace will be magnified to the Glory of God.

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus
Christ.”(1 Corinthians 1:3)

With an attitude of gratitude , we live our daily lives in the very atmosphere of God’s Grace. God’s will for us is absolute good. God’s love is unending, a grace that is for all , at all times and in all circumstances.

God is Hope : Believe in God Completely

Did you know that the same voice that uttered the words that created the universe  is present in the Bible? Did you know that God’s written word is as powerful as His spoken words? Did you know that God’s word doesn’t come back to Him void and powerless? Make no mistake about it, God’s words have power. They have a life of their own. This might be hard to believe for even many Christians because, let’s face it, life gets really rough,  and it is so easy to give in to the temptation of thinking that we’re alone in this world. God is hope. Life can be so alienating sometimes that it is so easy to feel disconnected from God and His Word. We are tempted, like Thomas, to only believe if there are certain things we can see. However, this is the challenge of hope. We have to continue striving in belief even if things look hopeless and there are no visible signs that our deliverance from whatever challenges we face is forthcoming. Here are two reasons why God is our hope and why we need to believe His promises to carry us through. It is only when we fully trust Him can we have real hope. Believe in God completely to see you through life’s circumstances and challenges.

“Hope and faith in God grows during our times of adversity”
–Robert Moment

God’s Word delivered in the Past

We only need to read through the Bible and its numerous instances of God coming through even when things seemed hopeless and impossible. Take the case of Gideon. This powerful Hebrew judge was introduced to us as a cowering person unsure of himself, his strength, and his place in the world. Sound familiar? Still, the angel of the Lord greeted him with the words ‘mighty man of valor.’ These were God’s words. These words didn’t match Gideon’s view of himself or seeming reality but God had better things planned for Gideon. He went on to lead Israel in an improbably victory against all odds. How much more can God work wonders in your life even if you feel the odds are against you? God did the same for seemingly lowly characters like David (he was the youngest of Jesse’s sons and a mere shepherd), Sarah (she laughed at the possibility of her getting pregnant), Hannah (she endured the bitterness of infertility), and many others. God delivered despite what ‘conventional wisdom’ or ‘reality’ said. Throughout it all, He stuck by His Word and His promises. When He makes a promise He delivered.

God delivers now

Look around you, God continues to deliver. Stop looking for Red Seas parting-although unexplained natural events still do happen-but look at the microcosm of people’s individual lives. Every single day, people who used to grapple with addictions, psychological bondage, bad attitudes, and other personal hindrances shake off their invisible chains when they accept Jesus Christ. Jesus’ saving grace continues to turn prostitutes, addicts, cheaters, fornicators, thieves, and others from their past lives. God continues to deliver on His Word in Second Corinthians when He promised that we will become new creatures if we accept Him. He continues, to this day, change our hearts of stone to hearts of flesh. The same God who spoke the world into being, speaks our new hearts and characters into being because of His written Word. If God can transform others, you can bet He can transform you too. That’s how powerful His Word is. How can you not have anything but hope in His powerful Word?

Logic dictates that God will deliver in the future

Considering that God is so powerful that He delivered in the past and continues to deliver now, it would be illogical to think that we can’t place our hope in Him to deliver us in the future. Regardless of whatever challenges you may be facing now, you only need to look at God’s track record and His existing power and believe in His ability to deliver, transform, and heal. He has His own timetable. He has His own plan and Will. Submit to His Will and place your hope in Him. It isn’t your good works or your merit that will make Him deliver. Only His grace. Place your trust in His unquenchable mercy and Grace and the same power that parted the Red Sea or rained fire down on the altar at Mount Carmel will come through for you.

Trust God to see you through– “For nothing will be impossible with God”(Luke 1:37 NASB).
