Just as John 8:32 says; If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free. Like myself, many have tried to live their lives without God, suddenly we discover it leads to disaster. Sound familiar? We can find everything we are searching for in God, there is no other place, because that place does not exist! He is our comfort, our only hope, and our true treasure.
Allow me to share with you out of the book of Job the 22nd chapter. I love this, it reminds me so much of me before I knew the Lord:) Stop quarreling with God! If you agree with him, you will have peace at last, and things will go well for you. Listen to his instructions, and store them in your heart. If you return to the Almighty and clean up your life, you will be restored. Give up your lust for money, and throw your precious gold into the river. Then the Almighty himself will be your treasure. He will be your precious silver!
Can I get AMEN to that! Doesn’t this hit right at home my friends? Why don’t we all get up and go take an honest look in the mirror. Does anyone feel sickly at this moment? I know I have felt this feeling many a time in my few years on this earth.
Then you will delight yourself in the Almighty and look up to God. You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows to him. Whatever you decide to do will be accomplished, and light will shine on the road ahead of you. If someone is brought low and you say, Help him up, God will save the downcast. Then even sinners will be rescued by your pure hands.
This is one of many great promises that God has given to each one of us. Shall we rest in it? God bless you all, have a wonderful evening. Please pray for me as I pray for you.
