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 without wanting those godly things that feed my eternal soul? In God’s presence, I feel insignificant and small; but, I am also left with a feeling of hope and promise. I know what is real and in Him I know that I can do all that is needed and required. There is no presumption with God, only the assurance that He will be there with me through it all. There is no place that I feel more secure than when I am being held in the palm of His loving hands. Away from the evil and doubt of a weary world, I feel the true peace of His eternal comfort. Restricted no more by conscience and fear, I am truly at rest. Being in God’s presence is humbling at best. In His piercing eyes I must be rid of all my arrogance and pride. Those nagging sins that so easily beset me will not allow me into His holy presence. If I am to see Him in all His beauty and majesty, I must be free from this world and all its limitation and restraint. The unholy will not have the power to stand in His presence, in their unholy state they can only echo these words “Forgive me God for I am unworthy and unclean; make me now thy obedient servant”.
