I am a very firm believer that God has put certain things into our hearts, He has created us with some bents. One of those bents is that there is a God, an awareness of Himself.
Romans 1:19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
People who say that they don’t believe in God are really saying that they don’t want God telling them how to live their life.
Psalms 53:1 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,”
Most Hebrew scholars would agree that another way to translate that passage into English would be,
The fool has said on his heart, No, God!
Another powerful bent that God has put into us is an awareness that we are eternal, that is we don’t just turn into dirt when we die and cease to exist.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart,
God’s desire is that we would love Him, follow Him, glorify Him as almighty God, serve Him, and live with Him forever. God draws us to Himself in a variety of ways revolving around His goodness, but if that doesn’t work than He uses trials and hard times to turn our heart toward Him and He keeps increasing the temperature. Many never bow to God and they will spend eternity separated from Him in misery.
I have submitted my heart and life to Him, He is my Lord and Savior, and I love Him. I look forward to the moment in time when I step into eternity with Him and get my new glorified body, that will be glory indeed.
2020 was a bummer of a year, and my prediction is that 2021 is going to be worse as God works at drawing the world to Himself. That means that myself and other followers of Jesus are going to go through tough times as well, and that we need to be prepared to share with those looking for answers the truth that is found in the Bible that Following Jesus is the only way to joy and happiness forever.
Have had the same thoughts about 2021.
