Last week I was thinking about God creating me. God desired to create human beings. When He thought about creating us He knew that we would eventually be evil because He knew if He gave us free will we would act out. Evil was not a mistake and it’s real. So God already knew He would have to have a plan in place that would put us right with Him. Jesus wasn’t an… uh oh!…they need a savior or here I come to save the day kinda thing. Jesus was their plan all along.
So this is what really touched my heart. That God Himself would save us. Jesus and the Father are one….the Holy Spirit is God and they have been with this created world from the beginning. And they had a plan to…make us and save us!!!!
Genesis 1:1 Says… In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
John 3:16 Says…For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
So God created a world that He SO LOVED! I’m so loved….you’re so loved!
Then God Himself fixed the divide that separated humans from Himself. One member of the trinity would sacrifice Himself and one member of the trinity would be present on earth to inhabit and help people. This was all done why? Because God so loved the world He created.
We are different from all of God’s other created beings because we were made in His image and we are His children. We are different because we have …..Suffered! The rewards will be great for us as stated in the book of Revelation Chapter 2.
Our purpose is not to make it big here on earth… but to make it big there….in Heaven with God our Father. It’s all about Him. Our whole lives are about our relationship with God. I belong to….God! He loves me so! He even put the Holy Spirit in my human body. He had a plan to take care of me. I feel like I need to let go of my attachment to this world. One day it will let go of me and I’ll be in with God…but right now…I’m just feeling… that I want to focus on my God so much more.
I’m trying hard to walk with God all day every day. I’m going to hold on to His grace for dear life until that grace carries me right up to God’s loving arms.
