With the latest tragedies in the news from the streets of the United States to the desert sands of Asia it is heartbreaking to see humans killing one another. Hurt people hurt people and that is what is happening all over the world. Evil grabs ahold of the human heart and twists it into this bitter, angry, human machine that will do nothing but destroy believing that it will solve the emptiness from a disagreement or pain suffered; but it will not. The hole in our hearts can only be filled and healed by God our heavenly father. Through God’s Son Jesus Christ who suffered and died for us we can receive this healing by surrendering our mind, bodies, and souls to The Lord.
God grants us power to do his will even if we don’t believe. God has a plan for even the evilest of hearts. God will take the bad in this world and use it for his greater good even the most painful situations that we don’t understand.
God anointed Saul to be the first King of Israel but he became arrogant and decided that he would do what he wanted to do to get his way because he was the King. What The Lord giveth he can take away. When Saul had lost God’s favor he did not repent and humble himself before God; he became bitter and paranoid until his death. His most trusted fighter David was anointed as the next King. King David was a man after God’s own heart but he too became arrogant and instead of praying for God to give him the woman he loved he just took her. He stole her from his best friend and then sent his best friend and loyal subject to the frontlines of war and left him to die alone. Although it is hard to believe God would love someone who would do this; he still loved David. God punished David with the death of his first child but David repented and begged God to forgive him and asked for his guidance. God forgave him and blessed him and his wife Bathsheba with another son who would be King Solomon.
God is forgiving but we must humble ourselves. Do not forget that what you are blessed with today could be gone tomorrow. Seek God first in everything you do so that you will live life to the fullest and love like there is no tomorrow.
Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.”
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
