Lack of Opportunity is NOT a reason for Bitterness and Denial … In the process of growing, we gain responsibility and knowledge to do what is profitable and good. We learn to accept the truth for what it is and to deal with our failures as stepping stones unto a better way and condition. Circumstances, good or bad, are only the criterion we have been given; they are our starting point, the place of our beginning. They will lead us to a place of truth and prosperity, or they will take us down that adverse road of denial and rejection; [Read More…]
The Folly of Worldliness and Disbelief; the Lie of Political Correctness … This evil world strives to take the established things of stability and promise and make them conform to its desires and purpose. Living a lie, its only intent is to take away what is good and to destroy. Knowing it cannot exist in the light of God’s holy Word; it dauntingly seeks to perpetuate its folly through the riotous actions of ungodly man. In evil’s unstoppable passion, it seeks to bruise and distort. It takes the evil desires of man, mixed with a lie from Hell, and maintains [Read More…]
Just a Thought …by GLH If God is in control, does true success come from the folly or deceitfulness of man? If God is not in control then where do we gain all that is considered righteous and good? If God is God, then He is the God of all. Hunger for the things of this world will only leave me discontented and evil. If I am not cleansed from the sins that condemn me; how can I ever hope to enter into His holy presence? How am I to mature or gain those things that are profitable and wise [Read More…]
Truth, the only remedy; forgiveness, the only hope … Where do you find any good in justifying the perverse or in distorting the truth? How do you give true comfort by condoning evil, or how do you make a man’s plight less burdensome by pretending to agree? Pacification is not a remedy nor is consent a cure. Faith in all things mortal is troublesome and foolish. To rely upon man for your deliverance is shaky and unpredictable, only a fool will think himself more high and noble than he really is or could ever hope to be. True compassion is [Read More…]
The True Wisdom of a Righteous God; the Compassion of His undying Favor … There is no compassion found in those who are spiritually dead or dying. Without hope, that presence of eternal expectation, we have no desire or foundation to sustain or foster true happiness or forgiveness. Hate is the product of ignorance while love rules in the hearts of the redeemed. True love and understanding can come only from those that are spiritually alive and forgiven. Hate rules the heart of the unforgiven while sin permeates the heart of the sinful and the damned. God is the giver [Read More…]
When God says, “I’ve got this” you can be sure that the devil, your enemy, will do everything he can to make you think that He (God) can’t or doesn’t have what it takes to triumph; BUT … (1 John 4:4) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Trust in God, do not fear and He will deliver you.
The huge difference between NEED and WANT … There are many things that I want but don’t need, while there are some things that I need but don’t want. The unending struggle between my desires or wants, and those things that are essential and needed, are what make life, any life, so complex and unrelenting. Many of us are torn by not having those things that we passionately want, and willingly sacrifice our joy and our eternal existence, to possess those things that are divisive and objectionable. God has promised to meet our needs and because of His enormous love, [Read More…]
