What The World Needs Now....

While I was on the computer today I couldn't help but be deeply touched by the searching everyone is doing.  How open everyone seems to everything but God.  They are into Yoga, meditation, the gift, new age,the secret, the occult and everything except the obvious Jesus.  I mean it is just so simple.  Its Jesus.  They didn't have to put a new face on Him.  He is the same yesterday today and forever.  I am baffled that people cannot see this.

By asking Jesus to come into your heart you have the chance to experience something that will change your life forever!  I have seen miracle after miracle in my own life because of Jesus.  I had someone yesterday tell me that they are coming to realize that Jesus Christ is the Messiah.  I thank God for that.  Eyes are being opened all over the world. That is a miracle my friends.  I am the first one who loves to find the next great thing.  I am always on the look out for something great.  There is nothing greater out there than God.  You can search the world over and you will never find anything greater.

If people would line their self image up with how God sees them, I think they would be happy with who they are.
 Genesis 1:27 says:  "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;  male and female he created them."

In Psalm 8: 4-5 it says:  "What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?  You made him a little lower then the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor."

When I read these passages it made me feel good that God loves me.  I can thank Him for creating me the way that He did and I am so excited about the good things that He has in store for me!  I think that God see us as His priceless treasure and He wants us to feel good about our selves.  Not because of pride or ego but because of how He loves us. God knows that we make mistakes and that there isn't a day that goes by that we don't sin.  But guess what He loves us anyway!!!  He created us in His image and if we allow Him to He will continue to mold us into becoming more like Him!  I just want to shout Hallelujah!!!

His Love is perfect!  He believes in you more then you do!  Have you ever felt like you were on the threshold of something great happening in your life that you could sense it? and then you back away from it and say "Oh no God, I can't do that I am just a nobody.  Well let me share something with you.  We have all been there and said that, even a guy named Gideon.  One night an angel appeared to him and said:

"The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!" (Judges 6:12 NKJ).  In the amplified bible it says:  "You mighty man of fearless courage."

The angel went on to tell Gideon that God wanted him to save the people of Israel from the Midianites who had taken over their country.  Well Gideon reacted like we would have.  He said what?  I can't do that I am the least one in my father's house.  Not only that Gideon came from the poorest family in town.  All though Gideon was filled with fear and lacked confidence, God saw him as strong and bold.  He knew that Gideon could lead his people into battle and come out with a victory and guess what?  That is just what happened!  Even though Gideon didn't feel bold or have confidence,  God did and Gideon  listened to and obeyed God and He came out the victor because of it.  Are we any different then Gideon?  I think if we take that step out in faith and trust God we can come out with a victory too.  If we dare to see ourselves the way that God does and listen to His voice and follow His instructions, then we could start to see the victory in our lives.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to stop the searching and live in peace?  You can buy the newest clothes, jewelry, houses, cars, and everything else that you think you need to be happy. But it won't work.  There is a little puzzle piece inside all of us that can only be filled by God.  We can try to fit everything else in that puzzle but it won't fit. Only God will and when you come to that realization, Jesus will be right there waiting for you to ask Him into your heart.  Just do it!  I promise you He will be the lover of your soul and you will live in the peace that passes all understanding. He will change your life forever and you will wonder how you ever made it through a day without Him.
