"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is."
1 John 3:2
Have you ever wondered why God hasn't revealed Himself to you, as to what HE wants you to do in this life? Do you think that being a minister or missionary or preacher is at the top of His lift for what you need to do? Think again!
If Jesus is Lord of your life, then not only is your entire life ordered, but so is every single step within your life. God has a plan for the plumber as well as the preacher, for the mechanic as well as the missionary. And if, for instance, God calls you to be a mechanic and you become a missionary, you are accepting second best! To find God's will is the highest achievement in your life. Success is not spelled M-O-N-E-Y. Nor is it spelled F-A-M-E. Success is the continuous realization of the will of God---what God desires for your life. God does not make clones; He makes children! There is an ultimate purpose for your life as His child---to be like Jesus.
Do you have children? Share with them these important insights about their future. They need to know this.
"And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."
We have always had wars and rumors of wars since I can remember. Every political person I have ever listened to said things are going to get better if you just vote for me. Well, has that ever happened? Both parties have held the White House and things just keep getting worse. So, what does the bible say about that? Remember when Jesus was with his disciples on the Sea of Galilee and a storm came upon them? The lightning began to play in the wind. The sea churned. And the gentle winds turned into a cruel gale. The little ship was tossed and turned like a cork. The disciples despaired and said to the Lord Jesus Christ who was asleep, "Don't You care if we perish? Do something!" And Jesus said "Peace, be still." And he winds ceased and the sea calmed. This world is headed into a storm and the spiritual barometer is dropping. And our world will not know peace until Jesus, the Prince of Peace, comes and says, "Peace, be still."
