Do you know God?

  There are many people that say they know God and do not really know Him at all.  I was one of those people for many years.  I should say, I knew of Him but I did not Know Him personally or intimately. I believe we are getting away from the truth about who He is and what He can only do in our lives.  He is the only one that can heal us from within, He is the only one that can heal us from our selves, He is the only one that can bring us to Him with a new life and truly teach us how to live.  I spent to many of my years counting on and trusting myself only.  I wasted precious time, He only gives me.  Now I must help others get to know Him and pray that they listen to Him and respond.  He also has given me this desire.  All I am and all I will ever be is because of my Heavenly Father.
   The scripture God has put in my heart today comes from a dear friend of mine Paul.  It is from a letter He is writing to the Romans.  By Paul writing this beautiful letter God has changed so many lives in learning the truth of who He is.  Thank you Jesus for creating Paul.  
   Gods word today starts of in:
 Romans 1 v 20 
   20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are with out excuse.

   I have used many excuses not take responsibly of my actions. I have always said to many people since then, we do not want to face the truth because truth means we have to face responsibility. It is hard to admit you are nothing so God can make you into everything He created you for. Some of my excuses and some were given to me through others are; I am to busy, I do not want to give up my desires that I want for something good and wholesome. I have more fun being what I want to be rather than being something God wants me to be, it is a boring life to always be good.  I see people all the time having to much fun sinning, I want to have fun too. I see people all the time making more money doing what they want to do.  I believe money can bring me more happiness than God can.  I believe the "American Dream" can make me happier than anything God can give me. I have made to many mistakes for God to look at me or talk to me.  I am worthless because of all the sins I have committed and He will never forgive me.  I can not forgive everyone of their wrong done to me, I am too angry to let God in. I have more friends and people that accept me if I follow them. My list goes on and on.Do you have a list of excuses you use so God can not be a part of your life? If you have one that I have not mentioned please share it with me.
   The proof of Gods eternal power as been clearly seen is some of my favorite words in the Bible. Because I know  of His eternal power because I am one of those Gods eternal power has changed. I believe people look for extreme miracles and He gives us the most divine miracle their is, through Jesus Christ. His eternal power can not only give you a glorious life here on earth but His power defeats sin, death and inables us to live forever gloried with Him in Heaven. Now, I don't know about you and what you think but for me that is the most glorious mircal I can ever imagine!! To actually be taught by God and Him live within us daily.  Thank you my sweet beautiful Jesus!
 The next part of my blog post today is the next word from God:
Romans 1 v 21-25
   For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise.  they became fools  23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.  25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather that the Creator-who is forever prasised.Amen.
   WOW!  This is so powerful for me.  This was me, I always put what i wanted before what God wanted for me.  Ask yourself; Is the power of God within you more important than what you are worshiping? What are you worshiping; money, a job, power, lust, doubt, another life style of everyday sinning, popularity, accomplishments and most deadly I believe; our pride?  His power, His glory or your power and your glory?Your power and your glory does not last very long or if it does, are you truly happy or are you lying to your self like I was for many years?  Leave your old life and let God give you a new life.  You will see for yourself that His power and His glory out weighs anything you believe is worthy.  Your life will have His joy, His peace, His guidance, His plan, His love wrapped all around you so you can have the strength to pass by what ever  your self desires or what the world puts into your path to desire.  Remember the devil is always working within you too, but you can shut Him out with the power of our Heavenly Father. You can not and will not be all you were created to be without truly knowing our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.  You will soon find out, like Paul, nothing can separate the love between you and Jesus. Gods word:
Romans 8 v 38-39
   38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anthing else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
   I hope this gives you something to ponder and think about, it may stir up something that can lead you to repentance and  taking responsibility like Gods word does for me every day. Please write me and give your comments, good or bad we all learn from both.

"It is hard to admit you are nothing so God can make you into everything He created you for. " I think it is sad that you think people are nothing. God has already created people. He doesn't create them AFTER we accept him. He creates us in our mother's womb. Therefore...none of us are ever nothing.

Jacob, He creates us in his image that is true but we have to turn to Jesus Christ to receive the Holy Spirit. Genesis 1 v 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;male and female he created them. Eve and Adam ruined the spiritual image and our relationship with God.We learned evil as well as good. We were not going to be able to receive food from the tree of life any longer we would not be able to live forever with Him we would die.(Genesis 3 v 22) He was so mad He left us because man chose independence. I believe this was suppose to happen because God does not put things into motion with out a end purpose and that was Jesus Christ. For us to be Holy we had to be Holy and the only way we could is to receive the Holy Spirit and be reborn. God gave us His Son so He could complete God's purpose for us all! We are only a shadow of what we were created to be without Christ, with Him we truly live and never die! Genesis 6 v 5-6 The Lord saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. This is why Jesus came to reconnect our spirit with His Spirit. We are made complete through Jesus, with out Him we are not who He created us to be. I know this is hard for some to understand, it was for me for most of my life. Isaiah 59 v 1 - 3, Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear to dull to hear 2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. v 20 The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins." declares the Lord.Jesus says without Him we can do nothing, John 15 v 5-6 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bare much fruit; apart from me yo can do nothing.6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. So if you do not have Christ in your life, leading you and teaching you, I believe you are and I am nothing. What I said and truly know is true because my life and many others have been changed through Christ, is that, we are nothing without Him. I was nothing for many years without my Lord and savior. We have deliberate sin, confusion, wrong choices and chaos without Him so we are nothing compared to what we are with Him. We confess and repent because of Him and we are saved because of Him. Therefore what God created us to be is because of Him, without Him we are nothing. Jesus says this in Mark 8 v 34 - 38 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said:"If any one would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.35 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.36 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? 37 Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation,the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels. When I say I am nothing as Paul says I am dead in Romans 8 v 10 But if Christ is in you, our body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. The point God has tried to make all through the Bible is you have to love Him above all else to receive His spirit, we can not choose our independence like many do, Jesus says this in Luke 14 v 26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children,his brother and sisters - yes, even his own life-he cannot be my disciple. 27 And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. When you realize how much love God gave us through Christ you will realize we are nothing without Him, because you will receive so much more of Him through the Spirit. A beautiful friend of mine, that Christ brought me says, "It takes one to know one". This is true if you do not have the Spirit then you do not understand or know the Spirit. I did not have the Spirit of my Heavenly Father most of my life, I knew of Him for many years but I did not have a relationship with Him or know that I could. I pray this everyday for everyone this is what God has given me. You do not have to have a ministry or be a writer to be a disciple of Christ. He will give you your purpose with His guidance whether it is a Godly friend, husband, wife, father, mother, teacher, business man, we all need to be unified through the Holy Spirit to give Him all the glory in our lives. With putting Him above all else He will teach you how to love everyone in a more perfect way. 1John 5 v 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 This is love for God:to obey his commands And his commands are not burdensome,for everyone born of God overcomes the world. Thank you so much for sharing your comments, this is why I do this so people can open up their true hearts and minds so Christ can reveal our true selves that God created us to be. Many prayers I am sending you and your love ones, Vicki Gann

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Along with almost everything that appears to be building within this subject matter, all your opinions happen to be rather refreshing. Even so, I appologize, because I can not give credence to your entire plan, all be it refreshing none the less. It appears to me that your comments are generally not totally rationalized and in reality you are yourself not even wholly confident of the point. In any case I did enjoy looking at it.

Thanks for the something totally new you have uncovered in your this website . One thing we'd like to critiques is that connections between owner and bachelor are built Over time . By presenting yourself to the owners the first end of the week their is announced, prior to the masses and then start calling on Friday , you create a good human relationships . By sending them gizmo , educational products , free reviews , and forms, you become just a ally. via a personal curiosity about them along with their circumstance , you build a solid interactions that, there are times when , pays off when owners going to with a representative they know all your other trust - preferably you actually .
