“The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. But the man who loves God is known by God.” 1 Corinthians 8:2-3
You may think this is crazy but I am going to tell you many times without stopping that without God in your life, then you are NOTHING!
When a man believes he has it all without God, he is simply saying that he owns his life and that he created himself. And this man is ignorant. He may be reacting deliberately or out of event that happens to him but then, must he get to that point where he should condemn God?
If you reach the stage whereby life does not have any value to you, then you should watch out. Knowledge rotates everyday. It does not belong to anyone. God alone has all authorities over the wisdom, the knowledge and the understanding of life. It is to Him you are to go to when you need to clarify issues in your life. If you say you are capable of knowing everything in life, then where is the space you leave for God to rule in this world? Where is that big space in your heart that you give to God to live?
A man who loves God has nothing to lose. He has only secured his life and his future. Without God in a man’s life, that person is emptied. He is like a shell without its owner and in the days when the waves come, it will just carry the shell (him) away without any help coming to him.
And it is the positive side for a man who acknowledges God in his life. He shows he has respect for divinity, for spiritual values and for everything pertaining to God. There is no way God will not make Himself known to this man.
I don’t have to boast to you here. I am a living testimony, I mean, a woman who has gone through it all, tested it all and finally come to that realisation that God; only Him alone has all the power and authority of my life. I did not just accept God overnight to preside over my life. I passed the storms, the waves and of course the troubles seas. That I am telling you all the time about God is because I know where you can find the everlasting peace, love and happiness you are looking for. You can find them all in God.
Wait, if you are not convinced, I want you to take this bold step, put aside all that you rely on, all those gods or materials you focused on, and come to God for a while. I bet you are not going to go back. God does not need your money before He can allow you into His presence. He needs you to acknowledge the price paid on your behalf; Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son.
Everything is done for you. All you need is come to Him, the author and the finisher of your Faith. You may have diverted or wavered in your faith, I am here to tell you that it is not too late. God is a God of many chances who spreads His love everywhere and forever waiting for you to come back.
Remember, there is no distance between you and God. It is your imagination. He is right there by your side. He hears you. He sees what you are doing. He knows what you are after, and what you are going through. He knows when you go to bed and when you wake up. He knows all your movements for that day even before you know them. He is waiting for you to break that imaginary gap you create between you and Him, and come to Him.
