Do you think that if God were with you, your life wouldn’t have problems? How about Joseph and Mary? God was with them and look at their condition. No room at the inn. Baby about to be born any minute. The stench and refuse of animals all around. Yet, they were rich in the eyes of God and all heaven was ablaze with angels trumpeting what God was doing through them.
The life of Jesus Christ demonstrates to us vividly that our imaginations of a life lived close to God are frequently off base. Life with God is not a life free of difficulty. Rather, it’s a life in which difficulty is always overcome. It’s a life where difficulty is met with patience and grace. It’s a life where spiritual goals cannot be blocked by physical obstacles.
Do not say, “If God were with me, then…” Say, “God is with me, therefore…”
The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church or any other group.
