God will Reveal the Truth to Those who Seek Him

God

God has enabled me to live a wonderful life. I thank God that I’ve lived my life virtually pain free. At 56 years of age, I’ve never had more than a 1 night stay in a hospital. That one night was spent in recovery for a tonsillectomy I underwent when I was 6 years old. I don’t believe I will ever spend an extended amount of time in a hospital. Based upon my medical history, and my belief that I will never spend and extended amount of time in a hospital, you might say that I could cancel my medical insurance because I’ll probably never need it.

I got my driver’s license at age 15 1/5 in 1976. I’ve been driving both privately and commercially for over 38 years. To date, I’ve never been involved in a traffic accident. I don’t believe that I will ever be involved in a traffic accident. Based upon my driving record, the professional driver training courses I’ve taken over the years, along with my belief that I will never be involved in a traffic accident, you might say that I could cancel my auto insurance, since it’s obvious I don’t need it.

If you’re at a crossroads in your life I encourage to you to take 15 minutes right now. Sit in silence and listen to what the Spirit of God has to say to your heart.

No home that I have ever lived in as a child or as an adult has ever been burglarized. I take precautions, and I continually guard my home against being burglarized. For those reasons, I don’t believe I will ever be a victim of any type of home invasion. Based upon my past history, and the belief that my home will never be invaded, you might say that I could cancel my homeowner’s insurance policy because I won’t need it.

If I took the stance I’ve outlined in the 3 scenarios above, you might accuse me of being arrogant, ignorant, and downright stupid when it comes to life and the possibility of unforeseen things happening in my life. And you would be absolutely correct to think so.

Take the Path of Minimum Risk

Insurance is our safety net. Insurance is our bail out. Insurance protects us from things that are unforeseen. Humans are fallible beings. We make mistakes all the time. Mistakes in actions, mistakes in judgment, mistakes based up misinformation and mistakes based upon our physical frailties happen every day.

Even when we don’t intend to make mistakes, we still make them constantly. Because we miss the mark so often, it’s comforting to know that we have the safety net of a good insurance policy to support us when unforeseen calamity rears its ugly head.

Always go with the Guarantee in Life

Minimizing risk is the hallmark of how I live my life. For instance, statistically 1 out of every 4 drivers on the highway between 2:00AM and 5:00AM on the weekend are intoxicated. The statistics of drunk drivers who run into houses and injure their occupants during those same hours are so small that they don’t even keep that statistic.

Knowing these facts, I do all I can to avoid driving and I require my children to be at home during those hours on the weekends. Why? Because it’s virtually impossible for anyone in my family to be harmed by a drunk driver during the hours of 2AM and 5AM on the weekend while they are at home. They may fall out of bed and injure themselves. They may stub their toes on the way to the kitchen for a glass of water, but the odds if being hurt by a drunk driver are virtually nonexistent.

We all are different in our approach to life. Some might say that I live an ultra conservative life and those who think so might be correct in their way of thinking. But for someone to have knowledge of anything in life that increases the likelihood of injury or death and yet deliberately increases those chances when an alternate option is available to them is foolishness to me.

God has a Guaranteed Insurance Policy

The bible tells us that those who do not accept Jesus Christ and make Him the Lord of their lives in this life will live separated from God and experience eternal torment in Hell. I don’t know if this is true or not. I can’t prove it. But I believe it. I believe it enough to have made Jesus Christ the Lord of my life.

Even if I am wrong about how I will spend eternity, I wouldn’t trade the peace that I am experiencing now in this life as a result of the active involvement of God in my life through the Holy Spirit for anything the world has to offer.

For those who don’t believe in hell and an eternity of torment separated from God, what if you’re wrong? Have you ever been wrong before about something you would have bet your life that you were right about? Is jeopardizing your eternal existence worth the arrogance of thinking that there is no hell?

If you’re right, so be it. But if you’re wrong, you’ve got everything to lose. And if you are indeed wrong, living an eternity in hell knowing that you read these words and didn’t act on them will be a constant reminder of a life that was lost for no reason.

Seek the Truth and Get Answers

  1. I totally agree- even if I'm also wrong about my belief in how I'll spend eternity, I wouldn't trade the life I'm living for anything else either. There's no denying the presence of the Holy Spirit working within me, giving me peace when life is in an uproar. I know that my Father hears and loves us! May your words bring many more to Christ.

    • Thank you so much for your comment Suzie. I never understood the bold face stance against believing when there is so very much to be lost hanging in the balance. Life is way too short. May I share a brief video with you illustrating just how short our time here is in comparison to eternity? Go to http://faithsmessenger.com/what-are-you-living-fo

      I know you know this already, but it just puts things in such perspective for me every time I’m reminded.

  2. That was a great video and I loved how he put into proper perspective! Thanks for sharing it with me.

  3. When I saw the title of your post Matthew 6:33 came to mind instantly.

    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    It's God telling us to put Him first in our life. I know for me that when I do put Him first, everything in life becomes far more easy to manage and this is due to the peace I feel in my heart knowing that the creator of the Universe is with me every second of my life!

  4. Yes, the christian life is indeed a wonderful life. But it can only be wonderful when lived the way it should be lived.

  5. Thank God for His presence!

  6. I also agree. It is amazing to know that there is somebody that is always with us. That carries us through our tough times, and our good. God has changed me in so many great ways!

  7. Great analogies for this life and death decision, Greg. Not only is Jesus our "life insurance" but also our life Friend, Helper, Comforter, etc.

  8. I agree with you THANKS for you information
