John 3: 16 says ” For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but will have eternal life ”
I believe that with my whole heart. It is a statement that brings hope and peace amidst the turmoil in the world. Knowing that your belief in Jesus guarantee you life forever is good. The word of God says if confess and trust him, then we can have that life.
Then, trusting God is another thing. I have seen this as a weakness. Most times we want to figure things our way. We never put trust in God. Trust is difficult because it requires waiting and waiting is very hard for most people. We have culture of today not tomorrow. When God promised Abraham a son, the bible says he believed God. But believing God meant waiting for 25 years. That was a long time. How long can we wait for God to do one thing that he promises?
Most people have turmoil in their lives because they can’t wait. Learning to trust God is a requirement for success.
Then, God promised to supply and meet our needs. Today’s world is about wants or luxuries. This is why most people have ended up in jail, due to corruption or in hospital with different diseases. But if we know, God has the power to meet our needs we shall be contented with the little we have. Kids must be taught the value of appreciation of little things in life.
Knowing that God created us for a reason. In Ephesians 5 has wisdom which talks about life. It say make the most of every opportunity because the days are evil. Most people never know why they exist. And they think they are here forever. As believers we need to be careful the way walk on earth.
Lastly, pleasing God requires faith. Without faith in God, He is displeased .
Always keep your faith in God not the things of He gives. Miracles are temporary and no faith must be put in them.
May God bless you as you reflect on the love of God.
