Never Too Late

ONE OF THE BIGGEST lies the Enemy tries to tell us is that what we have done is too evil, too wretched, and too unforgivable to make right. That God is mad at us and what we have done is unforgivable…To that I say this….

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land”- 2 Chronicles 7:14

You know in this world we live in with unspeakable evil happening all around us, its easy to forget that we serve a God of second chances. Yes the Bible tells us that someday there will be a point where God no longer gives evil the chance to repent and deals with all of this once and for all. Problem from our standpoint is we have no idea when that will be.

Are we in the “season”? Yep, have been for over 2,000 years now. Could Jesus come back at any time? Yep, but the disciples were convinced that He would come back before that generation passed away. So clearly God has His own timetable that only He knows about.

What we DO know however is that in the present, we serve a God of second chances. Remember yours? Remember when you called Jesus into your life and He forgave you for all that you had done, currently do and will do? Well that same God is still waiting for something and it could be that He is waiting for His people to truly repent and make this land great again. (No political pun intended).

Since the movie “Unplanned” came out I’m seeing a surge of people changing their thought process on abortion and it made me think that there is still hope! That someday soon we could see abortion come to a end and that people would truly repent of this act and change the world. Maybe not, but you can’t say that the possibility doesn’t exist. Wouldn’t that be a magical day?

Friends, its real easy to sit back and say the world is just too evil and there is no going back; I do it ALL the time. But when God tells us in His Word that He wants no one to perish, it gives me pause that maybe, just maybe this nation and its people aren’t quite done yet.

Maybe, just maybe there is still time for one last revival in the land that will bring more people to Christ than ever before. We still serve a God of second chances, just look what He has done with Abby Johnson, look what He did with Paul, and more personally, look at what He has done with you.

We serve a God of second chances…..Time for a revival friends..

Let’s lead some souls to Christ shall we?

Blessings,

Repent

2 Chronicles 7:14 -“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land”

It’s never too late to seek God and repent; more to come.

Blessings,

Impatience

RAY KROC is who I blame. Yes, the founder of our notorious McDonalds is who I blame for all of it. All of what you ask? Just look back at the title; Impatience!

Psalms 27:14- “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord..

Fast food is what started it all; then of course technology reached a new level and that is all it took. We have become slaves to speed and to heck with the results. I see this in my job all the time. People are in such a rush to get things done, that accuracy no longer matters. It’s all about how fast we can get it done and look amazing to others.

It’s not just at our jobs though, its in the rest of our lives as well. We rush to eat, we rush to work, we rush to bed, and sadly we even rush to God. I’m guilty of it, we all are.

Another example, how many minutes did you pray yesterday? There are 1440 minutes in each 24 hour day, how many of those minutes did you give to the One that Created, Saved, and Loves you more than anything? I can tell you I gave about 2 minutes; morning prayer that I do every day, then a couple of seconds here and there. Yet I gave work, 480 minutes. I watched TV last night from 7-10:30 so I gave TV 210 minutes. You starting to smell what I’m cooking?

Rush, rush rush…

The thing about all this rushing we are doing is that we are not living anymore. We are just passing through existence until one day it will all come to a screeching HALT. That chest will tighten for the last time, that headache will turn into something worse, that fight against cancer will finally overtake you. Then all of time will simply stop….What then? What at that exact moment will matter? One thing I can probably say that I would think of is, “Why didn’t I have more time?” God gives us plenty of time, we simply have stopped living it and living it the right way.

My friends, anyone can rush through life, however the Psalmist here tells us that to be patient is to be Brave and Courageous. Are those traits that you strive for? I can promise you that God has a plan for you and His plan is best carried out in HIS timing. Stop being in such a hurry for God has it all worked out! Or you can keep relying on McDonald’s and Technology to carry you to disaster.

As always, the choice is up to you; choose wisely….

Pray

Matthew 6:6 -“But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.”

In other words, those that shout from the rooftops about how they always pray have forfeited their reward.

Blessings,
