Hello reader 👋
Welcome to another one of my blog posts 🤝. Whether you’re familiar with this blog, or you’re reading for the first time or just curious, I welcome you in Jesus name! I hope you and your family are keeping well.
Thank you for taking time to read this post! I pray that this will bless you and for God to speak to your heart in Jesus mighty name!
The notion of a perfect, loving and good God triggers a lot of people today because they hold God hostage for not taking away their own pains, life issues, struggles etc. I believe, we have all wondered, why this is the case. And are still wondering why…. ??💭
Our personal frustrations with life and limited understanding drive us to ask questions like, “If God is so good why does he allow children in Africa to starve?” This is because we all possess the foreknowledge that God is sovereign and has authority to make things right.
However, the real question that needs to be asked is Who is responsible for evil in our world first.
The answer is humanity!
And that includes you and I!
We are responsible because we commit sin. God doesn’t. So we are the problem, but God is the solution!
However, we won’t find the solution without humbly recognising we’re in error, and submitting to what’s right: this is the word of God. His instructions for Godly living.
However, out of pride and arrogance, society tends to follow the depressing story of the ignorant boy below 👇👇👇
Our generation is like a boy who sees the fiery red candle flame on the table counter and is enticed to touch. His mother sternly warned him to not touch the candle flame🧏♀️🕯.
However, the boy didn’t respect his mother’s advice and was drawn away from the truth (that was protecting him from harm) by his own desires. He disobeyed his mother and touched the flame 🔥.
⏰ 10 years later, the boy has second-degree burns on his hands, an incurable skin infection that can only be medicated by Xanax drugs (which are slowly eating his lungs) and frequent insomnia.
His Therapist asked 🗣 “who’s to blame for your suffering?”
He replied: 🗣 “My Mother” 😤
🤯🤯🤯 If you were that therapist (having known the full story), you’d be thinking this guy is maaad. As innnn borderline bonkers 😳
But this is what many of us do!!! We invite pain into our lives and project it onto others by our sinful actions! But when the consequences fall back on us, we blame and have hatred towards God because he could have prevented it from happening to us in the first place!
We ask within ourselves, ‘Surely, if He is loving, He would’ve stopped so and so from happening?!’
Well, yes, He is loving. In fact he’s soo loving that he respects us enough to allow us to make our own decisions, even if it’s not the best decision. God has given us free will.
God hopes that this free will we recklessly use to defy His righteous instruction (that being, what He wants, or has instructed us to obey, out of genuine love, not tyranny) and reap the painful consequences will be a lesson to us that God’s way is always the best.
So, please, stop being bitter at God for “allowing” you to reap what you sowed without His counsel! Let the repercussions humble your heart. Acknowledge you made the wrong decision and come back to your Heavenly Father🙏 His arms are open wide, ready to receive you with Joy!💖 🥳😊
Lastly, and certainly not least, to the people who are carrying the burdensome consequences of another person’s evil:
I’m sorry. I believe this is relevant to everyone in a way. We’ve all had someone who’s unfairly hurt us. It could be an Ex- boyfriend, girlfriend, a school teacher or even your own family. I can only sympathise with you, but do you know there’s a God who weeps for you ? 😢 💔
He feels every single pain you feel. And He is hurting that you’re going through it alone. He wants you to release your burdens to him!
“Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you”
After releasing your burdens…
He wants to turn your pains into purpose!
He wants to trade your sorrow for his eternal Joy!
To trade Hope for the spirit of despair!
This Hope is only found in Jesus Christ! 2000 years ago, God came in the form of a human with the mission to rescue our souls from eternal suffering in hell as a consequence of our numerous sins.
He suffered a gruesome death on the cross to account for our sins, even though He lived a sinless life.
We broke Gods law, but Jesus paid the fine! All we have to do is believe in Jesus and we will be saved from our sins!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
I’ve received Gods unconditional love, through faith in Jesus Christ, and I’d love for you to have the same!
You can receive this by calling out to God and he will save you from hell. He is
a merciful and loving God, not wishing that you should die in your sins. Ask
Him for forgiveness and believe in Jesus’s sacrifice for your sins.
If you’re not sure, you can pray this prayer (aloud) :
I come to you just as I am. A sinner.
I believe that Jesus died on the Cross for my sins and that you rose Him
again on third day. Please forgive me for my sins.
Thank you for dying for my sins on the cross. I receive your forgiveness.
I pray that you will empower me to walk in holiness and righteousness. I ask
that you may fill me up with your Holy Spirit.
I declare now that I am a born-again Child of God. I am free from the power
of sin and full of the righteousness of God. Thank you, Jesus, for saving my
soul. I am yours and you are mine in Jesus’ name. Amen.
If you said that prayer with genuine belief in your heart, you are now a child of the most high! Praise the Lord! 🙌
Heaven is rejoicing over the decision you just made!
Now we must repent daily (turn from our sins to God) and strive to follow Jesus wholeheartedly because He has simply been too good to us!
God has a perfect plan for your life, that will bring him glory and satisfy your soul’s longing for purpose and identity!
Tips that will help you on your journey with Christ:
⁃ pray daily
⁃ Start reading the bible (preferably start with Romans ch 6 – 8 to consolidate your understanding of what Jesus dying truly means for us and the gospels books which are Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)
⁃ Find a Christ preached church (Ask God to lead you)
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the sweet fellowship of the holy spirit be with you all. Amen.
