This is a sequel to ‘Why Do People Resist God’ which is an often read post on this blog site. When I read it again recently, it had a much softer and somber tone to it than my first post. But it is a serious topic, nonetheless! God bless you all!
A Sequel to ‘Why Do People Resist God?’
Two years ago, I wrote ‘Why Do People Resist God?’. I am overjoyed for the number of viewers who find this post and are reading it every day. Perhaps it strikes close to their hearts because they, too, have unbelieving family members and friends whose spiritual lives are hanging in the balance. I would like to also think that some readers are searching for answers in their hearts, if there really is a God in heaven and does He really love them.
We who believe that ‘there is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun’ cannot help but feel anguish and helplessness in reaching out to our unbelieving loved ones, friends and others who resist God’s love and who reject Him and do not want anything to do with Him. It is only through our continued intercession for them that God…

TAKE HEART, PEOPLE!
Have you been troubled by what you see happening in the world and about you, or have you, had a recent dose of trials, afflictions, attacks from Satan? Whatever it is you’re going through- WELCOME to earth’s club!
God’s Word to us today:
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Col 3:2
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:1-3
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1Cor 2:9
Wonderful post that reminds us who we are in Christ when we have accepted Jesus into our heart.
A young boy from the New York slums was sent to the country by the *Fresh Air Fund. He arrived late at night and was shown into a bedroom in the host farmhouse and told he was to sleep there. It was like another world to the young chap who had spent his whole life in the slums, usually sleeping on the streets or in a dark hallway. He had never had a bedroom or even slept in a proper bed. In fact, he couldn’t remember ever being alone in a room before.

Do you have a need today? Reach out and touch Jesus as He passes by! Darrell Creswell writes one of my favorite inspirational blogs! God bless you, Darrell for sharing this!
Jesus has provided healing for us, and by His stripes we have received that healing. Whatever the issue in your life is of sickness, or maybe you are dealing with financial, marital, personal or spiritual issues – Jesus is your healing. The following is paraphrased from Luke 8.
Jesus was traveling and speaking to a large gathering of people. In the crowd there was a woman who for twelve years had been afflicted with a hemorrhage that caused her to have an issue of blood all the time. She had spent every penny she had on doctors and cures that never worked and nothing had been able to help her to stop the bleeding. She saw Jesus and believed if she could touch Him she will be healed.
She made her way through the crowd and slipped in from behind Him and touched the edge of Jesus’ robe. At that…

How can 2013 be a better year than 2012?
When we put God first in our lives, things will always be better for us! When we obey His Word, and do rightly, things will work out to our benefit.
All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
When we seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness, all the blessings of God will be added unto us! (Mt 6:33)
In 2013 let us “hope for the best and be diligent, and prepare for the worse.” We can do that by seeking to have a closer relationship with God, growing our faith, getting to know Him better by giving serious time to studying the Bible and prayer.
I wrote about having a relationship with God and the importance of God’s Word in the first 3 chapters of my eBook, ‘Sounding the Shofar- Exhortations for the End Times’. Please look over those chapters if you haven’t yet done so. (See side bar ‘From Journal and Shofar eBook)
God promises many blessings to those who trust Him and obey Him, but we won’t know and experience His blessings if we don’t know what they are. That is the reason why we have to search His Word to find those many blessings and claim them for our own. When we know that God loves and cares for us, we can “hope for the best” by putting our trust in Him for our todays and tomorrows. By persevering in prayer we can “be diligent and prepare for the worse” so that God will give us the strength we need when we need it, and wisdom and knowledge to deal with our challenges, problems, burdens, and worries. God will answer our prayers for help, meet our needs, bless us, and protect us from harm and evil.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3: 5-6)
No one knows what 2013 has in store for us, but we can trust God to help us through another year. He will help us to be strong, and not be fearful of what the future holds as we stick close to Him and remember His promises for us- that He loves us and will never leave us nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:8)
Our prayer for all of our SHOFAR readers is that you will know God’s love, His loving kindness and tender mercies, and have His Peace and Joy in your heart in this coming year! GOD BLESS YOU! HE LOVES YOU AND WE LOVE YOU, AND PRAY FOR YOU ALL!
