|Proverbs 25:11 KJV “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. In the Message translation it sounds a little different,|
11-12 MSG The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry, And a wise friend’s timely reprimand is like a gold ring slipped on your finger.
I get email from you with questions on various subjects and I decided to answer some of them right here right now. There isn’t space nor time to answer them all so I picked three that have recurred from different ones of you.
To you, who is in desperate need of a miracle, when Jesus was asked why they (the disciples) couldn’t perform miracles, His answer was…
Matthew 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing will be impossible.” I realize it’s hard to believe for a miracle when you are in the midst of a crisis, remember that sometimes you just have to believe the sun will shine again during your most bleak hour.
What? You said “that was in the olden days, this is now, miracles don’t happen”
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Now to you who have a broken heart; I have heard about divorces, break-ups, betrayals, and I have been there in all counts, so I definitely empathize with you. I know my Father and His Word says,
Psalm 147:3 He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds.Psalm 34:18 If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath. I have had the breath knocked out of me both literally and emotionally, it’s hard to tell the difference when you are sobbing so hard you cannot catch a breath, I have taken comfort in these words and so will you.
|To you who didn’t feel mom’s love, I don’t know about that first hand but I do know that it leaves a ‘hole in your soul’ that can’t be filled when you have to wonder, “why wasn’t I loved? Was I an accident?” |
YOU my dear, were no accident and you are special to God!
Psalm 139:15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
I don’t know why, it was her problem, not yours.
There are so many questions about how God “feels” about different situations and I don’t have a wonderful answer that will make everyone happy, so let me say this…God is the judge of everything and every person and if I can live according to His Word to the best of my ability then I am not going to worry about what anyone else does, it isn’t any of my business.
