What Has God Done for Me?

He talks to you

Can you imagine trying to assemble an automobile without an instruction manual? Absurd. Impossible. Can you imagine trying to figure out the meaning of the universe and the meaning of you without blueprints from God? Absurd. Impossible.

One of God’s most precious gifts to you, a gift that shows how highly he values you, is his Word, the Bible. He wants you to know what he’s like, what he’s done, how he thinks, how he talks. St. Paul praised the Christians in Thessalonica because in hearing Paul’s proclamation of the Word, they recognized that they were hearing the voice of God himself: “When you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe” (1 Thessalonians 2:13).

It is a sign of how dear you are to God that he took such elaborate pains to prepare a document that explains everything you need to know about life on earth and life in heaven. And guess what—it’s now available in English! All you have to do is read it.

What Has God Done for Me?

He gives you himself

Are you one of those people who hears the stories of the amazing person and work of Jesus Christ, who marvels at his love and victories, but fears that all those good things must be for somebody else? Do you have trouble believing and trusting that the great benefits of salvation in Christ could really apply to you? I mean you personally?

It is for just such fears that the Lord sets a table and invites you. Come to his meal! People don’t eat with enemies; they eat with friends. Jesus is your friend now. In fact, at his feast he is both host and the main course. In his Holy Supper, you encounter Christ Jesus, Lord of all, in an intensely personal way. As you receive his true body and blood, he is bonded to you and you to him—personally! Yes, you! Little, sinful, unworthy you!

Here is his promise, the gift of Christ himself: “Is not the cup of thanksgiving … a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?” (1 Corinthians 10:16). There can be but one conclusion: “Jesus, you must mean me too—me personally!”

You may not see me post anything for a few days, except of course whatever I may have in queue, because I need to “cut off my hand.” I found that I easily get sucked into the many lusts of life when scrolling, then searching through Tumblr.
I have the Tumblr widget so I could post without actually opening the full app, so I may still post a little; random thoughts, daily devotional, stuff like that. Anyway, catch me on Facebook or Instagram.

How do you prove that God is real?

You can not prove or fail to prove the existence of God. The Bible even says that we must accept by faith the fact that God exists: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. “(Hebrews 11:6). If God so desired, He could simply appear and prove to the whole world that He exists. But if He did that, there would be no need for faith. “Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29).

Looking at the stars, understanding the vastness of the universe, observing the wonders of nature, seeing the beauty of a sunset, the sun - all these things point to a Creator God. If these things were not enough, there is also evidence of God in our own hearts, this is the cause of people feel empty. Ecclesiastes 3:11 tells us: “… [He] set eternity in the human heart …”. There is something in the depths of our being which recognizes that there is something beyond this life and someone beyond this world. We can deny this knowledge intellectually, but God’s presence in us and through us will still be there.

How do I know God exists? I know that God exists because I talk to Him every day. I do not hear Him speak to me “an audibly,” but I feel His presence, feel His leading, I know His love, desire His grace. Things happened in my life so that there is no explanation other than God. God saved me and changed my life so miraculous that I can only acknowledge and praise His existence. None of these arguments can persuade anyone who refuses to accept what is so clear. In the end, God’s existence must be accepted by faith (Hebrews 11:6). No matter what, he is, and he wants you believe.

I’m starting to realize that maybe I just don’t know how to love.
That’s why my human and spiritual relationships are so strained.
