I looked at the beauty of the full moon that shown down on me last night. It’s mysterious planet-like look and it’s illuminating light is like a lamp turned on every night when it gets dark for me to view if I should want or need it. It’s light reaches down to show me how incredibly complex the vast expanse of the moon and sky are before me. The moon is so far away and it stays there night after night, year after year. Amazing. What human hand could ever pull something like that off?
And how many millions of people are in and have been in this world? And each person alone is a unique creation, like a snowflake, where no two are ever alike. Amazing. The circuitry of each and every cell within each person’s body holding unique DNA, RNA, mitochondria, chromosomes, Golgi apparatus, and the like ‘knowing’ their job and doing it consistently over our lifetimes.
I love the order that I see from all this. The stableness. The knowing.
Of course there is unstableness too. Relationships, earthquakes, wars, and the like. Doesn’t it look like sometimes that the whole earth is groaning and turbulent? That the world is full of chaos also?
I believe all this world was orchestrated for us. To see life’s chaos but also it’s order, complexity, and beauty.
God and his word bring hope to any darkness, in our lives and in our world. His word provides harmony and his will for us. In fact the more you read it, the more you start to understand how little you really know. Each detail of this book has a reason for being there. It is an exhaustive book, meaning you can study it deeply and still learn more each and every time you read it. Even going over the same chapter or verses that will happen. There is so much to glean and new insights come, enriching your life as nothing ever has before. It is a supernatural book, beyond science and the law of nature. Hebrews 4:12 states, “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edges sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
He first loved me. Shown by the cross. He gave me a gift. And he gives freely to all who come and seek him with all their heart. And what a gift! It is such a mystery and a new knowing of things from God I never knew before! He drew me over time. Now I desire to live for him. Thank you God that you chose me, a sinner. Thank you that I have not been the same since receiving the gift. Thank you God, for letting me get to know you and be in relationship with you! AND though I have not worldly riches, a high station in life, or the best of everything in this world; I would not trade what Jesus Christ has given me for anything. For it is mine and nothing can compare with it! Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life! And absolutely nothing compares with Him!
If we desire power, significance, or achievement these too are only what we think we really need. That focus again is about self. We are too self-orientated in this day and age. Also Satan tries to use our weaknesses, idols of one type or another, getting us to focus on ourselves many times to get our eyes off of Christ. This is so you do not get to Jesus, who wants you to know Him. The ‘pearl of great price’ is an eternal gift, one given and of no charge to you. Nothing in this world is worth more. For this world and all that it has to offer is only temporary. After our deaths nothing material is taken with us. Let us think more on these things.
For there is more to this world than what you can see. Much more. For instance there are angels, principalities, Satan, heaven, hades, the effect prayer has from a believer for others, sin, what Jesus wants us to think and to know through his word as soon as possible and before we die, and Jesus Christ. Have you read the Bible? We each have a spirit. When it is our turn to leave this world, that is what we are without our bodies, spirit. And Jesus desires we get to know him long before we die. He desires you to do this right away in fact. This is most important that you know this. He desires a relationship with you!
He sees and knows everything that has happened with everyone and at what time each thing occurred; and that includes all people from the past, present, and who will be in the future. Quite a thought isn’t it?! He is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), and omnipresent (always present); so we will not be able to hide :). Psalm 139 starts out, “O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD!”
Isaiah 46:10 in part says, “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come…”
I pray you would find a real bible and a bible-believing church; one where you hear Jesus is alive, well, and active now in this world and for you.
Whether you are a Jew or a Gentile, Jesus is coming back one day!
