Seeking-the-Lords-faceMy friends each of our decisions weather good or bad will eventually determine our ETERNAL DESTINY and it is when we get to our CROSS that Christ has ask us to bear, that God may decide it is time for my child to EXPERIENCE TOUGH LOVE.

God’s Word tells us “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Mark 8:34 (KJV) surely we will feel His presence and hear His voice through what we are about to experience. So we close our eyes and seek GOD’S PRESENCE, it’s frightening to us but God waits in silence.

My friends what we will never understand until our journey takes us into the Promise land is the hurt that our God must feel when He must remain silent, but that silence is a never ending chapter of the love our God has for us and it is called TOUGH LOVE which would be defined as a God who has done it all for our Salvation even to the point of given His only begotten Son to die on Calvary for our salvation but because He loves us so much He must “enforce certain constraints on His Children, by requiring us to take responsibility for our own actions.”

So now we must continue and like Elijah God does [tells us to], “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of theprayer Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by. ”Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, came [GOD’S TOUGH LOVE and then] a GENTLE WHISPER [well done my Child.] 1 Kings 19:11-12 (NIV)

No greater love, then our God who is “All knowing” “all powerful and “always present” and still loves us enough to express JUSTIFICATION by our faith through a TOUGH LOVE EXPERIENCE so remember “God is too wise to be mistaken , or too good to be unkind So when we don’t understand and when we don’t see his plan when we can’t trace his hand or Feel His presence or hear His voice please TRUST HIS HEART, BECAUSE HE SEES THE MASTER PLAN because He holds our future in his hand, (Babbie Nason)

“So don’t live as those who have no hope.” For God is our Hope even in the silence. The difficult part of GOD’S TOUGH LOVE is Satan, who  also makes his presentation “All this I will give you,’ …’if you will bow down and worship me.” But our response must be as our Saviors when Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.” Matthew 4:8-10 (KJV)

So today as you stand at your CROSS and you don’t feel God’s presence or hear His voice, remember God is on top of that mountain that seems so hard to get to the top of and He is in the valley, He is in the dry and barren places and He is in the rain and fire, so Endure.

Universe-006Choosing our cross without feeling God’s presence or hearing his voice is difficult at times as we cry out as Christ cried to His Father “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). Matt. 27:46 (NKJV)

But remember as we seek the presence of God in His word it becomes a mirror to our lives and as we get to our CROSS and recognize the TOUGH LOVE of God in the deadening silence as we seek His presence. We must then realize as we look at that mirror, how far short we have fallen from the glory and purity of God and of the high standard set for us by Christ, so we must now “lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,” before we can carry our cross and though the silence is frightening remember He who began a good work in [His Children] will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Phil 1:6 (NIV)


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
