What Does God Want Now?

Nosy Iranja

There was once a man who visited a woman he knew to be in great financial need. He visited with a generous gift to help her with her expenses. He knocked at the door. She heard the knock, panicked and hid so no one would know she was there.

The next weekend he told her about his visit. She said, “I heard you knock, but I did not realize it was you. I thought it was my landlord collecting the rent I could not pay!”

Let that sink in for a moment. The man came desiring to give, but she mistook him for someone coming to take. So often God is mistaken as one exacting payment from people, when the fact is that he is the one giving gifts to people.

So many people and religions in the world today are geared to think, “Here is what you must do for God.” In Christianity, that is turned over. Our message is, “Here is what God has done for you!” That’s grace.

Don’t Give Up

Have you ever heard the statement,” My life is falling apart so it can come together in a new way”? There are times right before we give up that things fall into place. Steven Covey emphasizes that in order to achieve success, you must keep the end in mind. Ask yourself where you would like…
