I hope all of you are having a great year so far and have stuck to your resolutions. If not, it’s not to late to start again!
Today’s post if for everyone.
As you know, I know the gospel is the secret to the only success that you need in this life. I have shared this revelation with you ever since it fell on me like a ton of bricks in 2017. What is the success? It’s the realization that there is a God who took pleasure in creating the mass that sits here reading this blog post. It’s the realization that He made you, knows you, and cares for you. That He is God and creator of every single thing and thought you would be a nice addition to all of it. That He breathed life into you and made plans for you before the beginning of time.
It’s the realization that He loves you even when you don’t love Him or want to acknowledge that this is His world and what He says goes. He loves you even when you spit in His face, ignorant of the plan He has for His own creation. He loves you enough to enlighten you in this moment that you are not God, This world is not your creation, and you don’t what is best. He loves you enough to open your eyes. To give you wisdom, and knowledge, and understanding. To let you see just a bit of His terrible, great, and awesome glory, and then to give you mercy when it occurs to you how unworthy you are to be in His perfect presence.
He loves you enough to show you what is good, and to grant it to you to act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him.
This is the secret to peace and joy and contentment: seeking, finding, and knowing your Father in Heaven.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
For the non-believer, ask.
For the believer, if you are in church, if you call yourself Christian, yet you do not understand the supposed peace and joy that is to come from it. You must seek God and the true meaning of the gospel; not groups, books, trips, songs, friends, or answers to your problems. While these are good, if you don’t know God an what He did through Christ, you miss everything.
Blessing to you,
