We thank the Lord for what He allows in our lives. "We know that all things work together for good of those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
"...I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18) If He builds His church then He takes care of it. He is Faithful, which means that if He says something, He always does it. God watches over His Word. He doesn't do it for us but for his glory. "For the Scripture said to Pharaoh, "I have raised you up on purpose to show my power in you, and that my name may be made known throughout the whole earth. (Romans 9:17)
"Watch therefore, since you know neither the day nor the hour." (Matthew 25:13) The breath of life can leave us at any moment, so we must be ready. God knows us and speaks to us. "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion." (Hebrews 3:15)
"For whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How then shall they call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear of him, if there be no one to preach? And how shall there be preachers, if they are not sent? (Romans 10:13-15) God is concerned that His people may understand and know Him.
We must realize that God has done something in our lives. To this day, He continues to call. "My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27) If He has called you by name, it is because He knows you. He had to arrange things for you. There are never chances because "The Lord has made everything for a purpose, Even the wicked for the day of trouble." (Proverbs 16:4)
"Simon told how God first looked upon the Gentiles to choose from among them a people to bear his name. (Acts 15:14) He looked away from His chosen people to the nations. This is the Grace of God. When it becomes repetitive and habitual, it becomes a danger to you. But when you realize what God has done for you, then you are grateful.
Noah knew that the future would not be better because he knew what God had planned to do. But the world did not pay attention and they continued in their wickedness. "But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord." (Genesis 6:8) We, too, have found favor in God's eyes in this time. May we bear the reproach of Christ!
In this Age of Laodicea, our God is not much loved because He is at the door and He knocks. "If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20) God help us to be aware of our commitment. We are not here to play. We come to the House of Correction to teach us, to rebuke us, to lead us in the way of truth.
God shapes us in his way to teach us. Since the creation, God already had his program and he placed everything. Everything is under God's control, there can be no chance. He is the Most High, the Almighty, nothing can escape Him. "I consider that the sufferings of this present time cannot be compared with the glory to come that will be revealed for us." (Romans 8: 18) There is nothing that can detach you from this God.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) So we are at peace, we who believe in Him. He cannot change. What He has done in the past, He is still doing today, so we are sure to get what He has promised us. He is the rewarder of faith. With Him everything becomes possible.
We have testimonies throughout the Bible that prove the truth of what God has said. Doubt cannot even enter our minds. It is in our age that God will complete what He has begun. We are called to play a very important role. God has already prepared us for this so that we will have an unshakeable faith.
He is our guide, our comforter, our counselor. May we give ourselves more to Him. "I have taken your word into my heart, that I may not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11) God is Good in all that He does, He is wisdom. He is also a support and a help in times of trouble.

"For He says, and it happens; He commands, and it exists." (Psalm 33:9) When God says, He does. God always watches over His Word and He has His eyes fixed on those who are His. "For you will not deliver my soul to Sheol" (Psalm 16:10) God cannot abandon us. We are grateful to this Savior. It strengthens and encourages us. The Master Himself referred to this passage because this verse has a deep weight for each of us.

(Isaiah 53:10) What our Lord has done is so great that our thoughts cannot grasp it. Man had to fall, but God would not leave him in that state. God has always manifested His perfect Will, the goal He sought to achieve for man.

"And with all the deceits of unrighteousness for those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth to be saved." (2 Thessalonians 2:10) We beg God that in our hearts we may love to hear the truth. "For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but itching to hear pleasant things, will give themselves many teachers according to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn to fables." (2 Timothy 4:3-4) Before the Lord comes to get His own, the scriptures must be fulfilled.

God knows the hearts of men and the desire of each one. The Ethiopian eunuch was there in that place, but God saw him. He sent Philip to explain and speak to him. God sees and hears. "I have seen the suffering of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard the cry of their oppressors, for I know their sorrows." (Exodus 3:7) Sometimes we think that God is insensitive to our situation.

"As a deer pants for streams of water, so my soul longs after you, O God!" (Psalm 42:1) Let this be deep within us! The Lord our God has truly loved us. "For we love him, because he first loved us" (1 John 4:19). We want to love Him with all our heart, with all our soul.

The world is covered in darkness but the light is rising on you. There must be a difference. You must be different. The light cannot also be darkness. "May you be cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth." (Revelation 3:15-16) You can't be two-faced. You lie to yourself, you have to be sincere.
