The Whole Plan Of God Is Built On Free Will, Within Certain Limitations

The name of the game, this whole game of life, is choices, constant choices! God sets choices before us all the time & then lets us make our own decisions & operate within certain bounds.

God's Will is sort of like a tunnel. It confines us & restricts us to a certain area of movement & possibility. He keeps us within certain boundaries & limitations, but which way we go in the tunnel--left or right or up or down--depends a lot on us & our choice. There's a certain leeway & allowance for variations of choice in the Will of God as long as it stays within the bounds which He has set. And though we are allowed to find our way through the tunnel any way we wish, we should be making progress with each step & not going backward.

The tunnel always leads in the right direction! It always has a goal! And of course there's always the best even within the tunnel! When we yield to the Lord & let our choices be His choices, pleasing the Lord, delighting ourselves in Him, then we go His direction in the center of His Will, following that light at the other end of the tunnel! Thank You Jesus!

He Offers Us A Pardon!

God is the Judge, Jesus is our Defense Attorney, & we're the criminals because we're all sinners! (Rom.3:23) The Devil is the Prosecuting Attorney & he demands the execution of the Law!--And of you! (Job 1:6-12; Rev.12:10b)

But Jesus went to our defense & He paid the price of our pardon, so God the Judge can set us free! And when the Devil reminds God of all your sins & iniquities, all you have to do is look to your Defense Lawyer, Jesus! (1Jn.2:1)

And Jesus just looks to the Father & says, "Father, forgive this man! This is another one of mine, Father, who has received Me & believed in Me as his Lawyer, as his Defense Attorney, as his Advocate. He has received My defense, he has received My sacrifice in his place & believes that I took his punishment for him! Therefore, Lord, You can hand him one of those pardons." And God hands down the pardon, & Jesus hands it to you, & the Devil slinks away, with his tail between his legs, defeated again!

You've got a pardon from God, no matter what you've done, because Jesus took your punishment on the cross! "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin." (1Jn.1:7) That's the only answer you need.

You Have To Follow Him To Find Out What To Do

God has already told us to "preach the Gospel to every creature!" (Mark 16:15)--But if you don't know where to go or how to do it, just get out & start, & He will lead you! If you obey what you know God wants you to do, then He will show you more truth; & when you obey that, He'll give you a little more. And step by step, as you follow Him, He will show you more & more. But if you don't go, He can't show! If you don't obey, He can't make a way!

So follow the Lord as though everything depended on Him--which it does!--Remember to do what His Holy Spirit leads you to do so you'll be sure to stay on the right track, know where you're going, & get there. Lord, please keep us close to Thee! Help us to stay close to Thee in Thy Will, obedient, following moment by moment. Help us to follow the leadings & checks of Thy Spirit in every step we make, Lord. If we follow Thee, we'll never go wrong!

"He leadeth me!--O blessed thought!
O words with Heav'nly comfort fraught!
Whate'er I do, where'er I be,
'Tis God's hand that leadeth me!
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His Own hand He leadeth me!
His faithful follower I will be,
For by His hand He leadeth me!"

Thank God For The Rod Of His Correction!

God is very just & very merciful & loving. He deals with His children in such love and such long-suffering and such patience, but nevertheless firmly and sometimes drastically if we need it. He is a loving God, but He's also a very good Father, and He knows how to give us chastisement for our mistakes. He sometimes has to give us a whack with the Shepherds rod to keep us on the right path or to turn us off the wrong path.

Although God's spankings are sometimes hard to take they're a token of His Love, His "intolerable compliment" and are good for us if we learn our lesson thereby and brought into happiness with Him and each other. He often has to spank us to gust us to really yield to humble us and make us more obedient, more contrite and more submitted to His Will.

Therefore, forget not "the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the Chastening of the Lord, nor lose heart when thou are rebuked of Him, for whom the Lord loveth he disciplines and correcteth every son whom He receiveth." (Heb.12:5,6) -- God's spankings are proof He loves you! So thank the Lord for His chastening rod which we have all felt if we're sons. It's such a compliment to know that we're His children!

"Beware Lest You Be Led Away From The Simplicity Of The Gospel!"

The first temptation of Man by the Devil was something to make Man supposedly wise!--Knowledge! (Gen.3:1-6) Likewise today, many books are written with the demonic Satanic wisdom of the Devil himself!--Cunningly devised to deceive & lead you astray, to pervert, warp & twist you spiritually to where you don't know what is true!

"God is not the author of confusion!" (1Cor.14:33) He likes things very simple. That's why it's wonderful to have the Bible as a guide. Then you know what's perverted & what's normal, what's right & what's wrong. But "the wisdom of this World is foolishness to God!" (1Cor.3:19)--And you cannot fill your mind & heart with Worldly wisdom, the foolishness of Man, without it affecting your spirit.--Just like you can't wade through the garbage & the gutter without getting besmirched. (See Col.2:8.)

Why waste time on complicated confused theories & thoughts of Man when the Bible is right there, so simple & direct & to the point?--Stick to the refreshing Water of the Word that feeds your soul, renews your mind, lifts your spirit, encourages your heart & purifies your whole being! Amen?

"His Banner Over Me Is Love!"

The Bible says, "God is Love," so we know that Love is God. (1John 4:8) Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love. (Mat.22:36-40)--This should be what we teach & preach, our message, our life, our goal, our everything: To love God & our neighbors as ourselves! Love is an emotion. It is something which causes you to move into action to do something good. Then you can move others.--Emoting them into motion or emotion by the loving power of God's Holy Spirit!

So step out by faith & talk to someone today about God's Love & try to make them happy! There are wonders of love that you yourself can enjoy along with some other lonely soul--if you will only try! If you give love, you'll get love! It multiplies & grows like the bread & the fish & the cruse of oil & the barrel of meal! The more you give, the more you get, & you give & give & give, & you get & get & get! (See Mat.14:15-21; 1Kings 17:11-16; 2Kings 4:2-6.)

In Jesus' name, give us love today, Lord.--That we may bring the peace & happiness & joy of the Love of Jesus Christ in our hearts to this weary old World! Thank You Jesus!

"She Hath Done What She Could!"

Remember that little quote that Jesus said about the dear woman who anointed Him before His death? He said, "She hath done what she could!"--Maybe you feel you can't do very much, but at least you can do what you can! If you're faithful, God is going to greatly reward you one of these days soon when you stand before Jesus at the "Judgment Seat of Christ." (Rom.14:10) So be sure you're doing a good work so that when you pass on to be with the Lord you will know you have done your job the best you can! Then you can look forward to eternal rewards & everlasting glory, with a feeling of genuine permanent accomplishment from a life of investment in His Work!

Have you done what you could? If you don't, you will lose your reward, miss the fruits of glorious victory, & another will take the crown that God has intended for you! (Rev.3:11) Are you going to be sorry?--Sorry for your sins of omission as well as sins of commission? May God help you, so you won't have to make the eternal lament of, "If I only had!" when the opportunity is gone forever!

"I am satisfied with Jesus, but the question comes to me as I gaze at Calvary, `Is my Savior satisfied with me?'"
