The very beginning of our journey with God started when He created us in HIS image…
“Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
When you begin your journey with God you find joy, love, excitement, new beginnings, a relationship that will never fail, and you will be filled with the Holy Spirit. God wants a relationship with you, no matter what stage of life you’re in, no matter what you have done, or what you are currently doing, no sin can keep God from loving you. You just have to be willing to turn to Him yourself. No one can make that decision for you, not your friends, nor your family, all they can do is lead you in the right direction. It’s YOUR choice to choose God as your Lord and Savior. When you follow God, you are following Him everywhere. Not the other way around, meaning you aren’t supposed to take the lead. Because, in all honesty, even if you tried, you can’t do life on our own, trying to make our own decisions on where to go.
“For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in Spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.”
You may not be able to see God in person (In the flesh) but that doesn’t mean He isn’t there with you. God will never leave you no matter what, He is walking with you wherever you go (in Spirit)
So, are you following God where He is taking you? Or is God trying to keep up with you as you try and lead the way on your own?
When you choose to follow God, you will face obstacles, and be tested by Satan. But have faith, God is always and forever with you, God allows you to be tested so you will keep on chasing Him. When you continue to have faith in the hard times you show more glory to God. In your weakness, God makes you strong. His power is made perfect in weakness. So, when you’re weak, you are strong.
-2 Corinthians 12:9-10-
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Your journey with God isn’t going to be perfect, and it is not always going to be easy. Satan will do everything he can to break you, but don’t let him have control over your life, give the control to God. God is greater then every lie, and attack the enemy throws at you. Don’t let Satan win the fight by giving into his lies, because God is greater, and He always wins.
When we choose God as our Lord, we become His children.
Praying over everyone reading this, and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
