Last Sunday the sermon at church was – as always – a lesson directly from the word of God about Him. It got me thinking, I have no physical proof that the reason I am strong is because God is here with me. Anything good in me is from God. I don’t need proof. I don’t need it for myself anyway. I know it’s His strength that abides in me. I am really unable to understand how anyone can stand under the weight of this world without having a relationship with God. More and more every day I wonder how anyone can look around and not be depressed or grieved or angry. I know I would not be able to handle this world without Him. I do get depressed, grieved AND angry. What gets me past it, and through it is the hope that I have for eternity with God. All that said, maybe you don’t feel like you need Him and your life is great without Him. You don’t really need to read this blog post further. If you do read further, that’s fine but know this – God’s word never returns void. It might change you. If you do need peace beyond explanation and want to know you are loved eternally, here are some things right from the Bible God wants all of us to know:
Acts 4:11-12 11 He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone.12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
1 John 5:12 12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Joshua 1:5 No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you
Psalm 9:10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Psalm 37:28 For the Lord loves justice And does not forsake His godly ones; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked will be cut off.
Hebrews 13:5 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”
John 14 14 “Do not let your heart be troubled; [a]believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going.” 5 Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
