One of the reasons it’s so important to know the Word of God is not only to learn His promises and His ways, but to understand His character. What He’s done for others, He will do for you. The same God who displayed His favor in the Bible is still at work today. I believe God wants to flood you with the same favor He flooded Joseph, Abraham and Elijah with. I believe He wants to open new doors, line up supernatural appointments, and bring new increase and provision. The question is, are you ready to receive it? Can you see it with your eyes of faith?
Today, know that our God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is with you and for you. Even before you see things turn around, believe that He is working on your behalf. And when He pours out His favor, it won’t be just a drizzle; it’s going to be a flood—a flood of ideas, a flood of good breaks, a flood of talent. Keep believing, keep hoping and keep praising because the same favor that was in the Bible is coming your way!
I’ve been on a YouTube binge. Cute animals leads into talking birds which linked to comedians and most recently the Christianity/Atheism debate. Now, as a Christian this may go against what I’m “supposed” to do, but if you don’t believe in God or Jesus, I’m not going to call you stupid or say you’re going to hell or anything like that. In my heart, there is a God, and if I am right, He will judge you. I have no power to judge you. I cannot predict the outcome of your good deeds or sins. You can leave the life you choose. I may not support or agree with some of your choices, but I will still love you as a friend.
That being said, the video I just paused right now to type this text post was about a girl asking if she will go to hell because she doesn’t believe in the Christian God. The speaker said he doesn’t think God will force anyone into heaven against their will. She asked, “what if I wanted to go to heaven?” For the remainder of this post, I am not speaking specifically about this girl.
I hear a lot of people say they don’t believe in God, but they want to go to heaven. You can’t have both. The definition of heaven is “the abode of God, the angels, and the spirits of the righteous after death” (dictionary.com). Saying that there is a heaven means that there is a God or some creator or spiritual force who created this place for afterlife. And saying that you don’t believe in God or some creator or spiritual force means in your mind there cannot be a heaven. You can’t have it both ways. Either there is a God and he created heaven, or there is no God and when you die nothing happens.
Take your pick.
