6.29.15 Things you should know about God pt 2
*God is family-
The Family of God
(1) I'm so glad I'm a part
of the family of God-
I've been washed in the fountain,
cleansed by His blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus
as we travel this sod,
For I'm part of the family,
the family of God.
(2) You will notice we say "brother
and sister" 'round here-
It's because we're a family
and these folks are so near;
When one has a heartache
we all share the tears,
And rejoice in each victory
In this family so dear.
(3) From the door of an orphanage
to the house of the King-
No longer an outcast,
a new song I sing;
From rags unto riches,
from the weak to the strong,
I'm not worthy to be here,
But, praise God, I belong!
Enough said on that if your not a part of God's family then what are you waiting for? There's no time like the present to join God's family.
*God is the great healer-Like I said in the past my 3 kids are proof that God is still in the healing business.
Deuteronomy 7:15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you.
Matthew 14:35 And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and brought to him all who were sick 36 and implored him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
1 Peter 2:24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
*God is the ultimate planner-All human beings are important in God's eyes. Numbers 14:21 we learn that the plan belongs to the God of Israel who was talking to Moses on Mount Sinai. The planner is therefore the God of Israel who is also the creator of heaven and earth (Isaiah 45:12).
“The Lord foils the plans of the nations; He thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations.” (Psalm 33: 10-11)
“But I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
God has a plan for everybody. That includes me. I don't always know what it is but I have faith in his judgement. His will is His will. He is in control not me.
*God reveals the future-Our Creator “calls those things which do not [yet] exist as though they [already] did” (Romans 4:17). He has the power, foresight and wisdom to bring things to pass according to His great plan and purpose for mankind. “Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will do it” (Isaiah 46:11).
*God cares for you-Caring and compassion is one divine attribute that people sometimes overlook in considering our Creator. But King David didn't. He exclaimed: “But You, O LORD, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth … You, Lord, have helped me and comforted me” (Psalms 86:15-17).
In the Gospels we read that “when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick” (Matthew 14:14). The apostle James later wrote that “the Lord is very compassionate and merciful” (James 5:11).
This sinning world in which we live inevitably creates much anxious worry in many people. But the apostle Peter tells us to exhibit true humility and trust in God in “casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6-7). God is the ultimate caregiver!
I hope I hit of some important parts of God that I thought you needed to know. God I want to thank you for being the loving and caring God that you are. I want to thank you for welcoming me into your family. God please be with my facebook family and friends and know that I love you. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
