“If we are not living in the life of Jesus Christ, if we are not abiding in the light of His holiness.
Then we are living a false existence under the banner of all these things that are true.”
– Gary Farris
Noah had followed Enoch’s footsteps. Enoch was taken up to Heaven. Since Noah was following, shouldn’t he (Noah) had been raptured as well?
No, we all have a specific Will that God has ordained us with, a blue print for our lives. That He is wanting us to carry out, without looking , comparing with other people.
We may say “Lord there is no way i can do that” or “I’m not capable” God does not call the equipped He equips the called. When God told Mose’s to save His people out of exile in Egypt, Mose’s made the excuse that he was slow of speech. What would’ve happened if Moses just stepped into the action instead of the reaction of doubting God and belly aching that he was not able to perform the task that God wanted him to carry out. We each have a mission, some say it’s Mission Impossible, but with God, all things are possible.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13 ESV)
The book of Habakkuk opens in doubt and closes in glory. It is a story of a man who had the heart of God, crying out in desperation for the people who were living a life of sin. Asking God why He isn’t doing nothing about it. God did not speak to him about concern that He saw. Being concerned is the opposite of anguish. Concern is a flash of emotion that will pass. God spoke because a man who was broken in prayer, asking God to “bend me, bend me o’Lord” wanting to be used. We have no reason to ask God, why is this going on when we don’t allow ourselves to get in the prayer closet and let God pour out His heart into us, so that we can make a difference while we have the time.
“We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.” – John 9:4 (ESV)
“I ask for peace as I look around,
I wonder how it can be in this barren town.
Then I hear You whisper,
soft words, that you see not my concern
But the anguish of my heart.”
God is wanting this generation to be full of His spirit, not to be in our comfort zone.
No creature comes into the World so helpless as man.
there is hope for the hopeless.
there is joy for the depressed.
there is deliverance for the bonded.
there is healing for the sick.
there is salvation for the lost.
there is Jesus.
