Wrap Your MIND around this:
Today while having coffee with a dear friend, and the mother of the artist who's work I put up here today, we talked of Three bottom line actions to following Jesus Christ.
I will get to them in a minute. First I would like for you to call to mind someone in your life that you absolutely can trust. Someone who without them even having to prove it, you know will do what they say or promise to you. That someone who you feel safe with, someone that you believe would never try to harm you or take from you, or deceive you.
Now lets say you rate that a perfect 10 on a scale of 10 for trust.
On that 10, I want you to imagine multiplying that by how many stars there are in the sky. I know, you say to yourself there are no known number of how many stars there are!
That is the point!
This person (person for lack of better word) loves you and can be trusted this MUCH MORE than any human on earth.
God. Jesus Christ. The Creator.
So, now as you think of this, hold on to it, Wrap your mind around this truth that everything HE allows to you, or does in your life no matter what it is, is ultimately for your GOOD.
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.
Romans 11:33-34 (New Living Translation)
33 Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!
34 For who can know the Lord’s thoughts?
Who knows enough to give him advice?
