How God Works in Dark Times (Judges 6:1-24) Romans 5:2-5 ESV
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Amen

I read words - of life - of truth. Soaking them in, over and over, praying them out loud. Until they became so familiar, they replaced the other things in my mind that I’d battled against. There’s nothing magical about words and verses, but there is power through them because they’re God’s words.
Change happened. Anxious thoughts began to diminish. Worry let go of its constant grip. And though fear is sometimes still there, it no longer wields control, holding me back, paralyzing me in its grasp.
His words are “life” words, soothing to our soul, calming to our spirits, giving power to our days.
It’s not always easy, and it often comes down to a choice:
Choosing not to allow fear and anxiety to control your life.
Choosing to guard your heart.
Choosing to focus your mind on what is true in the midst of uncertain times.
We might still feel afraid, but we can believe that God is with us. We may not be in control, but we can trust the One who is. We may not know the future, but we can know the God who does.

I enjoyed your book front to back! There are so many things that can go wrong and happen in a person’s life.

Milestone for the book but I need work. I fall short daily. I am human and trying my best to be best version of what God wants.

When God says, “There is none who does good, no, not one” (Romans 3:12), He is not saying that there is no good in humans in general. We all know some people—even nonbelievers—who have done some commendable things. God is saying that there is no good in us that can satisfy God. When the Bible says, “There is none righteous” (verse 10), it is not speaking so much of behavior, but of inner character.

God’s standards are high, to say the least: you must be absolutely faithful to his commmands.

For the Unbeliever

The reality is that the world is like this, full of disease, suffering, and death, whether you believe there is a merciful God on the throne or whether you believe that this is also just random chance. The difference between the two outlooks is whether the reality of the current world will produce hope or dismay.

For the unbeliever, suffering and loss in the only time you believe you have could easily lead to dismay. This world, you believe, is as good as anything ever gets. If it’s not so good to you, what hope might you have for something better?

For the believer, however, we are included in the promise of Romans 8:28. All things work together for our good, whether in this life or eternity, and this world is the worst we must endure. All things will be made new.

If you have not yet put your faith in Christ, this is an opportunity to enter into His promises. Ask us how.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (ESV)- Revelation 21:3–5

How are we as Christians called to respond?

As believers, because we can be confident in the promises of God even in the midst of suffering, we do not have to respond from a place of fear. We are free to demonstrate God’s love for us, by loving others. Ministering to people’s physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs continues to be our response.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. (ESV)- Romans 12:15



When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. (ESV) – John 21:15–17



Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (ESV)- James 1:12

God is in control!
Anytime we are faced with widespread suffering, the first question that always comes up is “Where is God in all of this?” The good news is that the answer remains that God is where He always has been, on His throne, and in complete control.

At first, this can seem disheartening. If bad stuff can happen, even when God is in control, why should I trust God? But consider the reverse. If God were incapable of stopping bad things from happening, would that make you feel better or worse about the situation?

The reality is that we as believers can feel confident through hard times precisely because we know that our God will use this situation for our good and His glory.

Disease and Death Enter the World

Let’s back up. Scientists believe Coronavirus first infected humans in a market in Wuhan, China, but where did this virus come from, spiritually speaking?

God did not create the world for death and suffering. After God had finished making Eve so that Adam would not be lonely, Genesis 1:31 says:

And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. (ESV)

But Adam and Eve sinned in Genesis 3, and through that sin, we see that death and suffering enter the world. We were not made to separated from the ones we love, or to suffer through painful disease, and so the emotional and spiritual tolls are often as great as the physical ones.

God Uses Suffering for Our Good and His Glory

But God, being all-powerful and all-knowing, did not just leave His children to suffer in vain. The pattern in scripture is clear. He is Lord, even in our sufferings. We can see the promise made in Romans 8:28, among other places.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (ESV)- Romans 8:28

But this promise is not idle. Repeatedly throughout scripture, God fulfills His purposes for the good of His people through trying times. In Genesis, Joseph is sold into slavery, sent to Egypt, only to redeem His people by leading Egypt through a tremendous famine. In the end, Joseph declares:

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. (ESV) – Genesis 50:20

In Job, God allows Satan to take everything away from Job but his life. His possession and his children are destroyed. In the end, Job confesses:

“I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. ‘Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you make it known to me.’ I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” (ESV)- Job 42:2–6

In this case, God restores Job’s family and possessions to him, and, in fact, doubles them, but more importantly, Job trusts God through all of His suffering, and through that trust, it is counted righteousness to Him through Jesus Christ.

We could take nearly endless other examples of suffering from the Bible to make similar points, from Jonah, to Paul, but the most obvious example is Jesus Himself. Through Jesus’ suffering, God reconciled the world to Himself. Jesus’ death on the cross was not Satan’s defeat of God, as the men on the road Emmaus wondered (Luke 24:13-17), but God’s defeat of Satan once and for all (John 19:30- “It is finished.”

Covid?
“Christ Our Victory Is Divine “ all things work for the greater good. God is unhappy with this world and it’s leaders who take his laws and beliefs and try to rid them from this earth. He will bring the darkness before the light.
Brace for the impact for this change will bring divine direction for what is good and holy. He will sound the Trumpets in victory so massive the whole world will know it was divine.
Stay in faith for this too shall pass.

If there is no God. Do what you want?

If there is no God, then there is no reason for me not to do evil if it benefits me to do so. In secret, when hidden from the purview of the authorities, as long as you are sure that you cannot be caught, you might as well steal, make war, pillage, and commit whatever actions suit your fancy.

Take the money. Steal the inheritance. Commit fraud if it leads to a financial benefit. Go ahead and sleep with her. Extort if you must.

The only consequences that you need to fear are here, on earth, in this world; you only need to fear getting caught by the authorities.

If there is no God, I can follow my passions without compunction. In fact, I can experiment, sampling from any lust I wish, as long as I am sure I won’t be caught, there is no good reason not to do so. If there is no God, then nobody is watching me when other humans aren’t watching me. When I am alone, I am truly alone.

If there is no God, there is no good reason for me to be brave, to sacrifice my precious and valuable life for the health or freedom of a stranger. Those that have died before me are dead, and I cannot shame any of them.

If there is no God, then this is a godless universe. Then it is all for naught. Then I am actually just a hairy, sweaty, greasy bipedal ape, a bag of flesh, soon to disintegrate back into dust. We might as well do whatever we wish, because morals are just subjective, learned cultural things. To kill yourself today or die twenty years hence won’t matter at all, it being all the same an eternal dirt nap.

But if there is no God, then we still have miracles to contend with. We have the miraculous appearance of the universe, in all of its cosmic glory. We have the miracle of self-consciousness, and the resulting birth of a person’s soul out of nothing. We have the miracle of prayer, the fact that we can pray to a god that does not exist, is remarkable in itself. So, if there is no god, that would be awfully strange.

But if there is no God, it doesn’t matter– I will still be a Christian. I will still believe in prayer, in faith, in light, in goodness. I will stand for truth and expect persecutions to come. I will do good to my enemy, because a satisfied enemy may not be motivated to risk his life in battle in the present moment.

If there is no God, then we live in a dream. A contradiction. We are part of the great lie, the great falsehood, that something non-rational can rationally arise from the void. The contradiction becomes the central point for understanding everything, and at the same time understanding nothing.

If there is no God, then we live in a dream. Then we are just part of the great everything, the all-that-is. But if we are a small part of the great everything, the contradiction naturally arises and defeats our unbelief, because if everything exists, then God exists.

If there is no God, then there is no universe. We understand through intuition, reason and basic logical work that there cannot be a universe without a creator, that a godless universe is no universe at all.

And if there is no universe, then there is no God. Only God could see us, could hear our prayers through the illimitable number of possible worlds that could exist at any given time. And only a good God, who is perfect Love, could have allowed this universe to exist, with so many loveless creatures in it that so badly need redemption. God must be a God of redemption.

If there is no God, then Satan rules the world. Because if it is true that there is no God, it cannot at the same time be true that there is no Satan. One thing about the world that we know, is that Goodness may or may not exist, but evil certainly exists. And if evil exists, and Satan exists, then God must exist too.

If there is no God, then we are lost in our sins, then we really are despicable animals, wretched and irredeemable. All of us unsaved, not even making a mark on moral history. Unacceptable even to ourselves, and not even loved by our creator, whatever that might be. We are all doomed and hopeless orphans, lost in space.

If there is no God, then there is no spirit. If there is no spirit, then we are on our own. If we are on our own, we are just winging it. If we are just winging it, then there really is no cause to stress yourself about anything.

If there is no God, then there is no devil. Then we are the root and source of all evil in this world. We are the great Satan. We are the adversary to ourselves, to future generations, to the earth, to each other. If there is no devil, we have no excuse for our evil ways. We serve our sentence as demons, and then disintegrate into the void from which we never really left.

If there is no God, then there is no such thing as a chance happening. All of those lucky accidents, answered prayers, strokes of luck and unbelievable coincidences are stripped of their glamor. They are simply happenstance, the way of things, and due only to the interaction of matter with matter. But anyone who has been alive for any good number of years knows that, right there, is a bunch of baloney.

What's The Gospel
Ohhhhhh Myyyyy gosh Im crying....I’m praying all of you stop to read this Testimony... Ok I told u to pray for a Godgiven car. Now I only had 4500 which includes the thousand an angel gave us. I told God I needed to find a car again that an elderly person had low miles and clean and good condition, also asked that maybe it be someone we knew or our family or friends knew. I couldn’t do as my love and look at ten thousand dollar vehicles and have faith that if in Gods will He would provide for ministry vehicle. Ok but I had faith asking God to please give me something for 4500 2007-2008 and a car well taken care of by the owner. This again has been a scary experience knowing that we don’t have money to pour into a car that one might sell us used and we get ripped off . But that’s where Prayer and God came in. You see I felt like my faith was weaker than Mark Lubbock. But God saw my little faith and He used it to bless me in Big ways. Now it gets better I get a text Sat. from my dear sisinluv Linda Ham Bennett saying she just found this and it was a friend that was selling it. Ok the lady put 3500 a 2007 119,000 miles , wow no way then someone made her realize she could get more money for it. So she says since she had put 3500 when Linda saw it we could have it for that but if we didn’t bye it she would raise the price. Oh my gosh I got the pictures of car then I find out it use to be my mother’s dear friends car and she gave it to her daughter who was now selling it. Wow I call her talked to her tell her some of my Godstories. She says people asked her why would u sell that nice car. My friends I tell her God used her in our need. Then He used my sisinluv to see it first and call me. Oh my gosh I call my brother John who lives and has his store near there. He drove over to see car Oh my gosh he said yes it’s a very nice car that’s God has for me. He knows the mom and the daughter who now owns the car. Now what’s awesome is he is giving her the money so she will hold it for me and letting me send him the money. My friends I say over and over You cannot outgive the Lord no matter what u do. Now I was not going to go with another TownCar I was thinking a smaller vehicle. But I also told God I Would love a Moon roof in the car. Ohhhhhhhhhh my gosh yes yes it has a moonroof. My friends we all have flesh that makes us not really think that God Only wants the best for His kids . Well looking below here we go again He has proved it knowing I would get on here and shout it out to the world How awesome He is.
Hi Alan Merry Christmas hope to see you guys soon
Open your mind. Boom...
