Something God Doesn't Have Already

posted Jul 8, 2013, 7:33 AM by Deanna Skare
There is something even Almighty God does not possess already.  Wait a minute.  Didn't God create everything in the world?  Doesn't God have authority to rule over everything?  Yes, of course.  However, still there is a thing that he does not control at His will.  Not because He is not capable of owning and controlling it but because He does not intend to do it.  God wants it to be free.

I guess you know what I am talking about now.  It is human minds and hearts to which He gave freedom.  We can decide what to do and what not to do.  That is why responsibility follows us all the time in our lives.  Often times we make bad choices driven by uncontrolled desires and so face fatal consequences - "After desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death."  (James 1:15)  But, God is so good and kind and loves us so much that He opens the way to reverse our bad choices.  He sent his one and only Son Jesus Christ to save us from sin and death.  Again it is up to us to accept Jesus as our savior.  It is up to our decision given the Grace of God through Jesus the Christ to reverse the way.

When we make a good choice or decision, God would be very pleased, not because he gets the benefit, but because He likes to see us getting the benefit out of it.  When we have faith in Jesus the Christ, the one who God sent us to save us, God couldn't be happier than ever because He knows how good it is for us to live a saved life.  And at the same time, He will be happy because He would know he finally has our minds and hearts there.  Faith is something God doesn't have already, and He knows that faith in Jesus is the best choice we can ever make in our lives.  God is working for this all the time:  "The work of God is this:  to believe in the one he has sent."  (John 6:29)

Some days are diamonds, and some days are stones, but no matter what happens in your life, faith in Jesus will take you to the right track because He is THE WAY to God.  Your faith is something God treasures.  Your praise is something God adores.  Your worship is something God always wants.  Because He does not already have them!

Praise the Lord!
