God has given to everyone a free will, so that we could make our own choices. One thing is sure …if we make God our priority, God shows up and shows off in our personal life. An athlete who refuses to play by the rules will never get anywhere. If we choose to do life without God — we will not get far before we realize that there are more questions than answers. If we stick it out with Him, we will enjoy the benefits of knowing Him. God knows all those who belong to Him.
When God becomes a second thought in our lives … Heaven becomes as a sounding brass. Don’t be fooled … there are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be lovers of themselves. They will be disrespectful to their parents. They will become addictive to lust. They will become competitive even to the point of harming each other to succeed. They will be money-hungry, and they will hate God. ( 2 Timothy 3)
But don’t be disturbed by those who ridicule our faith. God rewards everyone who stays the course. Accept the hard times along with the good … should we accept only good from God and not adversity? Staying faithful to God during a difficult season is a race worth running…we will run hard and we will finish strong. “Faith is putting ALL your eggs in God’s basket.”
WE need an open heaven whereby we can talk to God at any time. It is far safer and a more practical way to deal with problems than talking to a human being. When Heaven opens up to our prayers — life gets easier and miracles happen.
