John 1: 4-10
God wants every man to come to the truth and be saved. God loves man. Even Cain, who was evil, God came to him to talk to him. There is no unrighteousness.
Romans 9: 9-14
Humanly, when you read this, you might think that it is unfair. Isaac was a son of the promise. Galatians 4:28
Romans 9: 10-11
We have the grace to know the God of Abraham, this God who sees from afar. When we talk about the seed of Abraham, we are talking about us. When we have the knowledge of God, we understand it and see that God is not unjust.
Romans 9: 1-9
"In Isaac will be named for you a seed". When we saw that Rebecca gave Esau and Jacob, it was thought to be the seed of Isaac. But we have to understand the Word spiritually. When God says something, He's not wrong. When God speaks, you have to listen to Him. "For all who descend from Israel are not Israel" God is not carnal but He is spiritual. When God says "be careful" it is for you to be careful. When God reveals Himself to you, it is Grace. You can't see things the wrong way anymore. We must have confidence and faith in this God, never doubt. "I will not forsake you, I will not forsake you. (Joshua 1: 5) The problem is how we think. Satan comes to put you in doubt: is this possible? But everything is possible for God. What you see with your eyes is what is near, but what you don't see is much deeper. Facing Lazarus, we saw a man but He didn't act like a man. He had been dead for 4 days, that was no longer possible. People said to Him “he already smells” in order to discourage Him, but He confidently said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God? (John 11:40) Even when you discourage Him, He gives you courage. He's not a man. Even when you are desperate, “if you believe you will see the glory of God”. Our thinking must be different. We pray for you and you tell yourself that this does not change. It's you who thinks like that. When Jesus walked with His disciples, he was hungry. He saw the fig tree without fruit, He said "Let no one ever eat of your fruit!" (Mark 11:14) The disciples saw the evergreen fig tree. We always want to see right away, but God has His way. God can do it right now, like years later. We see the example of Abraham who waited 25 years. We are rich: good health, money, houses… All of these things are for us, God only wants you to have one thing: patience. How do you want to learn patience by having everything right away. The ordeal is doing its job. Trial produces faith to hold on to Him. When Jesus spoke, it was over with the fig tree. The water did not pass, the sap did not rise since that moment. Several days have passed, the disciples passed by the fig tree again, “Rabbi, look, the fig tree you cursed has withered away. "(Mark 11:21) When we pray for you, either on and on the inside, there is a work being done. The roots are cut. You have to be sure that this will come to pass. We have wealth, we have everything with Him. When God spoke of the seed of Abraham, He knew what He was saying. When He says we'll be steadfast, He's going to give us the means. Only stay attached to Him. Fasting is good, but fasting and prayer will not make you a saint. “The Pharisee, standing, prayed in himself thus: O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of men, who are captors, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector; I fast twice a week, I tithe of all my income. "(Luke 18: 11-12) It is not by our efforts:" Sanctify them by your truth: your word is truth. "(John 17:17) In order for me to be a saint, I need something. God is Holy, if the Holy One is in me then I can become a saint. God must do what He wants with us. When God said He was going to do for you, we can do anything. If God said so then it will come to pass. Let us enjoy serving Him and putting His Word into practice. God knew the selection that had already been made. Even in conception, it is God who controls all things. We explained it to each other, but who orders that one to go there? It is God who gives life. "Shall there be calamities in a city, which the Lord is not the author of? "(Amos 3: 6) It is always God who heals. It is not the doctor who heals. Even in the tablets that you take, there are plants in there, but the plants come from nature that God created. When Rebecca felt a fight within her, she stood up and prayed. “She went to inquire of the Lord. (Genesis 25:23) When you have a concern, get down on your knees, God will reveal Himself. All dreams are not of God but God also speaks through dreams. “I bless the Lord my counselor; The very night my heart exhorts me. ”(Psalm 16: 7) We should always keep our thoughts pure, leaving no room for the devil. If you have bad thoughts, Satan will also use the dream to fuel that.
