Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 10/20/2011

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father in the name of Christ Jesus who lives within me through the Holy Spirit I pray that You create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me, for my one walk in and with Jesus today. Make me a channel of Your peace, standing having girded my waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which I will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Always asking that You bless me and mine in fulfillment of Your will and keep us from evil and pain; reminding us that if we get nothing else done this day, let us spend it loving You and others first, as You love us. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

    May I humbly ask your opinion on the following…

    IS GOD REALLY FAITHFUL???

    What do we say to our youths who ask genuinely ”If there was a God and if this God was so good, why do innocent children die? why do we have natural disasters, still births, victims of paedophilia, starvation in Africa/severe poverty, even the horrible deaths of some christians/missionaries? etc.”

    Many christians today may find themselves in situations where they are left asking ‘why is this happening to me when God made so many promises in the bible about saving us from all our troubles’

    Unbelievers also make a good case with this, if we can not explain.

    God IS faithful…but how does that fit into the above?

      Wow – deep questions, that each would require a lot of time and many words to express my belief; but here is a summary, which I will also post on your blog at http://WWW.NOTSAMSON.COM

      1. I believe it is we who are either faithful or unfaithful! God is perfect by nature, all knowing and all good. He created us (man and woman) in His image, with freedom of choice. He is omnipresent; always with us, in everything and with everything. It is me (us) who intentionally or allow the busyness or pressures under the sun to separate or disconnect us from Him through the Son. We must practice His presence by staying consciously connected in the now of each moment. We are here under the sun to do the will of His Son; to serve His purpose for each of us according to the gifts He has given us. This is in conflict with the ways under the sun; and doubt constantly causes us to question. We just need to ask the right question and direct the question properly. NOT IS GOD REALLY FAITHFUL? BUT WHY ARE WE SO UNFAITHFUL?

      2. I firmly believe that God planted the seed for us each us to need and want to know and be with Him in our hearts; we can hide, we can avoid, but we cannot escape this fact. God is perfect and good by nature; and we are fallen by nature, of our own choosing. Through this fallen nature we walk and live under the sun with all kinds of things that result from that fallen nature. It will never make sense to us while we are under the sun; why we will suffer and why we will feel and see so much pain, we will always wonder why.

      But, we each will hear His call differently and at different times in our life. And when we decide to answer His call we will never be the same; we become aware, aware of the differences of walking according to the ways under the sun vs. walking with and in the Son. At that moment when we decide to answer the call He begin a transformation from within us; our belief becomes more faith than doubt; we begin to become aware of the need to follow Him; following Him leads us to want to become His Disciples; but His work within us never stops under the sun. Neither do the questions.

      The best way to can answer these questions is to put the Word of God in the hands of the one asking; to help them by surrounding them with examples of God’s work within us and under the sun through the Son. Create an environment where they are more likely to continue to hear their call and see His works until they decide to answer it.

      Only God’s Words will make sense to them; we can only strive to be a good examples, followers and disciples, lights on a hill, until they reach up and grasp the hand of Jesus and begin to seek and walk their own narrow path.

      There are no magic words or answers to these questions; but deciding to believe, follow will lead to wanting to be a disciple; and this makes it easier to accept what we do not know and cannot understand.
