Oh Lord my God, How wonderful You are. When I think about what You have done for me, I wonder who am I, that You should pour such love towards me. Surely I don’t deserve it, but You – O Lord drew me nearer to You. Thank You for saving me and for loving me. I can never repay You, but I can choose to live a life that seeks to bring You glory. -meiyen
My friend posted a picture of the universe and his status message caught my attention. He invites readers to tell him if God is even there. I wish I know what to say. I just sense in my spirit that he wants to believe there is a God but he’s unable to because he doesn’t see how a good God would allow evil. I wish I can make the decision for him but I can’t. Yes, God is very real to me. No, I wasn’t raised in a Christian home. I made my choice in 1992 and I never looked back since.
Matthew 16:13-16New King James Version (NKJV)
Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ
13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
It’s easier for a person not to believe, because everything will be status quo, Life goes on, and basically he/she will live life the way it pleases him/her. On the other hand, when someone make a conscious decision to believe in God, changes will take place, and he/she will no longer be god of their lives. One can’t go where God is, and remain where he/she is.
