“You are worthy, O Lord our God,

To receive glory and honor and power.

For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you please.” (Revelation 4:11).

            I never really thought or saw this before but, it is important to realize that from the beginning of the Bible (Genesis) to the end of the Bible (Revelations) God is telling us that He created the world.  It is also worthy of pointing out that this is one of the hardest topics to witness and prove to people.  With the world today teaching our kids evolution and everything else besides intelligent design it is harder and harder to get people to believe in a God they cannot see.  Not only that it is hard for them to get them to believe that God spoke something into nothing and from nothing came everything that we currently see.  The facts are that while we may not know what to say when someone asks us about these tough questions, the truth is always the same.  God did indeed create something from nothing and we are not God’s sales person who needs to convince people of the facts we know are true.  God is His own salesman and we are just called to do what we can to be His hands and feet.  A hammer does not look at a house and say, “Look at what I just built!”  The hammer without the Carpenter is nothing… We are the hammer and as

Genesis 1:1, 2 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.     galaxies

           God created it whether we believe it or not that does not change the fact that He is who He is… God is not made smaller by our small view of Him.  He is the God who created something out of nothing and gave us the honor to be made in His image.  I am challenged every day to see the world God created and see Him in all of it and so should you…

God is bigger than our explanations of Him and I find it refreshing when people do not act like they have all the answers, because we don’t… If I had all the answers to the questions of God then the God you and I serve would not be a Big enough God to serve.  I am glad I don’t have all the answers because in that He keeps me coming back to know Him better.

Take the bull by the horns

“Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”-Matthew 26:39

In the Orient young bulls are tested for the fight arena in a certain manner . Each is brought to the ring and allowed to attack a picador who pricks them with a lance. The bravery of each bull is then rated with care according to the number of times he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting of the blade. Henceforth recognize that each day you are tested by life in like manner. If you persist, if you continue to charge forward, you will succeed.

Sometimes you have to feel the sting of the blade to get to the ultimate goal…

Think about Jesus in the garden right before He was betrayed by one of His very own followers. Jesus knew the sting that was about to come even to the point that He asked His Father to take that cup from His hands. Jesus knew that to suffer ment He would succeed in His mission to save you and me. Yet in spite of the sting of the nails He preceded to charge forward…

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to us to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach our goal. Failure you may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will you know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.

Sometimes you have to suffer a little to succeed… pain brings on change! Take the bull by the horns and

BRING ON THE PAIN OF CHANGE!
