The most dangerous thing about human beings is their willing power to do anything. So God can't control any thing around that. God will do any thing in his mighty power to keep us with him. I believed in my entire life that no one will burn in hell forever, except the devil of course.
I was so reluctant in life. Why? Because of his graceful mercy and every thing about the Lord compassion that is he is full of LOVE. Well, devil almost takes me through destruction because of this. Still I have a difficulty understanding this. Still I am striving to be able to grasp this concept and share the truth about it. I know I am doing my best to please God. I guess that is all I need to do. May be more, I don't know.
Knowing God s will is finding a great peace from our uncertainties. Knowing God is more of believing in him and establishing a faithful relationship with him. Who knows God with out believing him first? Who says for sure I know my Lord with out surrendering his life? Who can see God with out leaving everything for him?
Who will fully trust God while one hand is on the wheel? Trust is the key. I see that I don't even fully trust in God sometimes. I see that I want to be a co-pilot. Does the creator of the earth and heavens need assistance? Does God ever need our help to do his will other than to be completely surrendering our selfish desires and follow him?
May be the cause of our unbelief is that we might probably spent all of our lives in a secular manner. May be we miss understood the advice that says, The Lord will help those who help them selves . This would put too much confusion to us. It sounds as if we should do all manner of things according to our understanding of his will without making sure it is.
I believe the message shall be better understood as:
Do your work according to his will but not according to your own version of it, and leave the rest to God with no worries and anxieties no matter what .
Jesus already knew that he is going to die and rise up. Scriptures has already written for him to confirm that. I don't think he cried for deliverance at the cross even when they mock him and make fun of him. He said, if I had asked my father for help, he would have sent me legions of angels right now . This means he didn t ask for help.
He didn t ask it because he knows his destiny and every single step he should follow to reach there. We might know about our destiny but the steps that we should take to reach there may be hidden from us. How do we know our steps? HOLY SPIRIT.
He is so special, so close, so clear and concise. We know him and we heard him many times before. But we didn t always listen to him as we should do. Because of that we will get in to all manner of troubles.
He is the one that Jesus preferred to go so that he will come. Jesus is saying, while I am with you, you didn t know me.
So Jesus preferred to go to his father and come back to his beloved. In every one of us, he always wants to whisper something precious than pure gold and silver.
He would always say all night and all day:
I love you. I have proof in my hand that I have pained for you. I have payed all the price that is necessary for us to be together. I will never leave you till the end of time.
I will always be there for you. You don't have to be afraid of anything. I have defeated the world. Please don't do that and you need to start to do this, till I come and take you to the place I have prepared for you in my father's house.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit lead us to eternal blessing and joy, in Jesus Name, AMEN!
