fantasy_beach_wallpapers_2-300x212“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Ps. 139:23-24 (NKJV) My friends, only an all-knowing God knows our “innermost thoughts” and “the way that [we will] take; when he has tested [us]“ Job 23:19 (NIV) that is why we must ask God to search us and make an evaluation on our character compared to His and then with no reservation, He will tell His Spirit there is lot of work to be done let’s get started.

My friends, the God I know never gives a diagnosis of incurable, no hope. But That is what the doctor usually says when a person has stage four cancer and they operate just to see if there is any hope. But once they go in and see the cancer is to advance, it has spread in to many areas of the body. The saddest words the patient will hear when the doctor comes into the recovery room is, there is nothing we could do you have about two too three months to live.

But my friends, Christ gives a different diagnosis as he looks at every area of our life where the cancer of sin has spread, and says; I died so that thisimages7
patient can have a complete recovery because “in Him His faithful “have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace” Eph. 1:7 (KJV) When we go to God with a broken and a contrite heart even when the world says there is no hope, God has searched us and He sees we are willing to “forsake all others.”

And we are willing to “crucify the flesh with its passions and desires.” Gal 5:24 (KJV) And we are willing to let self-die and the life which we now live in the flesh we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for you and I.” Gal 2:20 (NKJV) And we are willing to look at all ten of God’s commandments and understand “If [we] love [God we will], keep [His] commandments. And He will pray to the Father, and He will give us another Helper, that He may abide with us forever the Spirit of truth…” John 14:14-17 (NKJV)

My friends, “it is the darkest right before dawn and this might just be the [darkest] and hardest Season we will ever experience, But It’s not over, It is only the beginning when God is in it. because He will make all things new.” (Israel & New Breed, It’s Not Over When God Is In It) But we must submit to the will of the one who gave it all for our Salvation because “Christ is the source of every right impulse.

caminoHe is the only one that can implant in the heart enmity against sin. Every desire for truth and purity, every conviction of our own sinfulness, is an evidence that His Spirit is moving upon our hearts…. Christ manifested a love that is incomprehensible; and as the sinner beholds this love, it softens the heart, impresses the mind, and inspires contrition in the soul.” (E.G. White, Steps to Christ pp 26,27)

And then in the recovery room of redemption, Christ comes in and says; you will live because “I died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.” 2 Cor. 5:15 (NASB) And to live for Christ is to go into all the world with the good news of His soon return “for He is even at the door”
