God Almighty our creator knows we need help, for without him we can’t function. So he has to make sure this world he created functions according to his will.
The right amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide is released in the atmosphere for all living things to survive. The sun has to be at the right position from the earth. Genesis 1:14 God said, let there be lights from expanse of the sky to separate the day from night, and let them serve as signs to mark the seasons, days and years. And let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on earth. God made two great lights, the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. And God saw it was good.
Jesus said, God is always at work. So he is busy working behind the scenes. He looks after all creatures great and small. That’s a big job to handle, only God can do it. So talking about work, this is work at its best.
We all have our own tasks to handle. And sometimes our tasks can be too difficult to handle, causing us to give up. However, perseverance helps us to go a long way. Most of our tasks require reasoning. Why do we do it, and what are the benefits? God allows us to work because it is good for us. Laziness is not good for us.
Remember we acquired God’s characters, and one of them is determination. When he decides to do something he does it as he did right from the beginning. Relatively, when we are determined to do something we get on with it. God gives energy, without it nothing can be done. He made sure every creature gets enough energy to act accordingly.
Weakness is not good, for God wants us to be strong in faith and actions. According to the Bible many of our weaknesses are brought about by Satan. One of them is fear. Fear, as you know, brings insecurity. Satan’s character is to be bad in everything. Satan manipulates fear to our disadvantage, for example, fear of stepping into faith, etc. The scripture says, there is no fear in love. 1 John 4:18. Love crosses difficult barriers. In essence, we all need God’s love. God put a portion of love in each and everyone of us, as you know, without it, we can’t give or take.
Sometimes, we forget how loving and patient God is. For without his amazing generousity and kindness, we wouldn’t enjoy life. The scripture says, don’t be deceived…every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father in heaven.
God planned that every human being needs Jesus, when it comes to his salvation. The holiness God requires from us, can only be obtained through his Son. He says it in the scriptures, so it’s up to us to accept it or not. Acts 4:17. Salvation is found in no one else, there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
