God Grief Top 10 List – Things That Cause God Grief
Godgrief! Get under the Wings of God
God is not a God of wrath, but a God of LOVE and protection. The verses in Matthew tells us of God’s concern for us. Asking us to come in under His wing…like a mother hen would gather her babies.
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under herwings, and ye would not!” Matthew 23:37 – King James Version (KJV)
When I visualize that spiritual message, Kindness overwhelms me and I sense the presence of God. The Father HIMself… warming me with the security that I find under His wing. A place where bad character can fade through understanding–can melt away. All my troubles and worries dissolve away in the image. Sustaining that level of strength in faith is what I seek diligently. Thats where I long to stay, because that is where I am most at peace. I long to find the treasures He has given us by seeking Him constantly.
Seek and You Will Find
The Lord did say: “Seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened unto you.”
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:” Matthew 7:7 – King James Version (KJV)
That instruction brings to my mind, the woman constantly coming before the King seeking her will be done.
“And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.” Luke 18:3 King James Version (KJV)
That woman who came before the king time and time again to plead her case, received justice. And that due only to the fact that she was making him tired through annoyance. Not to say we should annoy God, really, just to say we should wholeheartedly ask him constantly for the gifts that He already promised. Gifts of Wisdom, Understanding , and Knowledge…ones that glorify not only God, but also ourselves by living as He prescribes…we reap the benefit of a perfect plan for health, longevity and oneness with God. As He prescribes pertains to the words written in the Word. We need to ask for Wisdom in order to use the knowledge we gain from His Book; causing us to turn from our bad habits in joy, not in the spirit of loss and grief. Satan does try to give us that spirit when we are letting go of a negative thing…something hanging on in our daily habits that came with the package when we surrendered to God.
So I keep knocking and seeking Gods will to be my constant will. The Lord does sanctify my soul through out my life with Him. I see who I was as an innocent child with faith in Christ as a loving Being wanting to keep me safe from the apparent darkness in the World. I also see the progression from innocence to jaded by the World after entering into fast worldly business. Now I see how much I regret not staying right in the bossom of Love…sailing on through life in peace and safety, rather than in striving, struggling to make something huge happen.
Knock and it Will be Opened Up to…IF you ask.
Jesus instructed us to knock. To come to Him. To seek Him out and ask for entrance into His presence. There, we can seek His will to be done in our lives…not our own vain will.
Ask now for Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding of His kingdom He designed for you. Get eternal life…get under God’s wing.
