God is Love

There is lot of misunderstanding on the sovereignty and the love of God, its true that God know all things, but not all that happens are according to his will and authority.

Jesus portrays God the Father better than any parent in this world in verses Matthew 7:9-11. Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone; or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Does any parent let their kids to be beaten or raped or get infected with some decease to let them learn patience or endurance? If not why you think God does it? Don't parents do all they can to save their children? God is better than the best parent, he will do all he can, in fact he
already did, now its our turn to receive what he had done for us in
faith.

People often quote Job to state what they are going through is from God, but its something different, God knew that Job will survive, but there also God told the devil not to play with Job's life and God restored all what Job lost in the double measure.

Deu 30:19. I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before thee life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that thou mayest live, ......

In the above verse God say He set before us life and death, and for some who might have difficulty in making the right choice he gives the hint “choose life”, so that they live, still we blame God for our bad choice

Also in John 10:10 Jesus say.. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

So when our peace is stolen or our health is destroyed or someone we love get killed we should know who is in action.

We are living in a corrupt world and no one is perfect enough to keep the devil away, at times he may attack us and over powers us, but we don't have to let him camp in us and get going, through Christ we can pull down his strongholds and kick him out, he is already a defeated enemy ......
the Bible say in James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Instead of resisting the devil, if we are submitting to the devil believing that he is doing so with Gods permission, we will never be able to get out of his grip. Its a mind set that the devil creates in us so
that we don't resist him, he is a liar.

In James 1:13-15 Bible say Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and
sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

The devil exploits our weakness, as long as we are close to God we are under His protection but at times we stray off and the devil start attacking us, when we sin we are giving the devil a foothold in our and life and once he is in there he start stealing, killing and destroying. So
walk closer to God and that will help us to stay away from the devil.

God is love, His unconditional love is there for everyone, as we walk closer to him we will get to know it more and more.......

Remember! Its not being holy and righteous that gets us close to God, its getting close to God that makes us holy and righteous.
