Are We Listening?

Do you ever ask yourself why; why am I alone; why did the kids turnout the way they did; why did I lose my job; why am I sick? Why, why and why?

I came across these verses this week.

Why do you contend against Him? For He does not give account of any of His actions. [Sufficient for us it should be to know that it is He Who does them.] (Job 33:13, AMP)

Did you catch that? It should be enough for us to know that God allowed these things and that alone should be enough for us.

The next verse tells us that we truly already know the why.

For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it [including you, Job]. (Job 33:14, AMP)

God tries to get our attention through a myriad of ways; everything from dreams (from Job 33:15), through pain and sickness, (from Job 33:19-20), messengers, even angels and interpreters. (from Job 33:23)

Our question should not be… why God. Our question should be…What is God saying to me?

Prayer – Lord, help us hear your messages before it is too late. For Christ who left such a clear message for all of us. Amen

    [Exodus 20: 8 -10]
    “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.”
    apostle Paul had the Roman citizenship but he confessed in Philippians 3:20, “Our citizenship is in heaven.”
    We have the privilege to live in the kingdom of heaven forever as the citizens of heaven. But how can we prove that we have the citizenship in heaven? We prove it with the ID cards on earth, and likewise, we have to have the ID card of the heavenly kingdom.
    Of course, this ID card is not just given to any person. It is given to only those who have faith.
    But we need to show the evidence that the faith we have is true, and this evidence is to keep the Sunday and give tithes. These two things are the most basic evidences to prove that we are the citizens of the kingdom of heaven.
    Recently, I have heard many testimonies saying they have received many blessings after practicing the word they heard in the sermons about the tithes.
