Think About It

God, the Creator, owns everything – the world and all that is in it (see Psalm 24:1; Isaiah 66:1). If He were hungry, He wouldn’t tell anyone, because He is capable of providing for Himself (see Psalm 50:12),

but He commanded tithing, and delights in and accepts our offerings (See Malachi 3:8-10; Exodus 34:20, 26; 35:5-9).

God is all powerful, and heaven is His dwelling place (see 1 Kings 8:27);

but He humbled Himself, became human, and dwelt among us (see John 1:14) to show us the way back to the Father.

God hates sin (see Psalms 45:7),

but He loves the sinner (see Ephesians 2:4-5).

God is love and has made a way for sinners to have a relationship with Him (see John 3:16), but He is also just and therefore will punish sin (see Isaiah 13:11).

God is patient and longsuffering, not wanting anyone to perish (see2 Peter 3:9),

but He will not wait forever; He will one day judge the world. It may be sooner than you think. You need to repent before it is too late (see Romans 2:16; Acts 17:31).

God knows all our needs, and can do for us without our asking Him,

but how else are we going to demonstrate faith in Him, or give Him thanks and glory? He wants us to ask (see Matthew 7:7-11; Romans 10:11).  

God is good, kind, and giving,

but He does not always say “yes” to our requests, because He’d rather give us something better than what we desire or request, like His grace  to endure (see 2 Corinthians 12:8-9).

God always knows the answers,

but He questions us to make us re-think our position or stand (see Job 38:4-39:27).

God is able to prevent problems in our lives;

but He allows them as a means of growing our faith in Him. If we didn’t have problems, how will we know He can solve them? (See Romans 8:28; James 1:2-4).

Think about it. God is all you need, and you need Him now (See Isaiah 55:6-7). Choose Him!
