Thought for the Day – 22 January 2019

Thought for the Day

Not knowing where we originated, and being subject to our human senses; it is hard for many to believe that we are God’s children – created in His image. 

Genesis 1:27;27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” 

And that  is why we require Faith to over come those senses and enable us to hear the voice of the Spirit – and remember:

2 Corinthians 5:7;7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”  

Romans 8:16; 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:”

Psalms 48:14; 14    For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.” 

What better guidance could we receive than the following?

Matthew 7:13 – 14;;13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

And then came more reason for us to believe! 

Revelation 12:9;9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  

We were warned a long time ago. 

1 Peter 5:8;8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

John 10:10; 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

1 John 4:9 – 10; 9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”  

If we aren’t aware of, or do not believe this, it is time we got into the Bible and on our way to Church.  It is the only way; and if we stay close to God, some of His Life rubs off on us – awakening our hearts and minds so that we can live life more fully. After all, “He is our Guide!”
