What the World Needs the Most Now

4 The spirit of God hath made me, 
and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

Job 33:4 
King James Version

When you have come to know God -- really know Him -- you will never be the same again.

When you are a follower of Jesus, the Son of God, you will love being led back to the FATHER.

And when you start learning from the Holy Spirit of God, you will marvel at the unerring knowledge that can only come from God.

When you reach this point in your life, having done all the "excavation" in your soul, you will experience the peace that can only come from the Holy Spirit -- the "Advocate", the "Teacher of All Things".

You will view the world as it really is, subject to the fallen one.

And yet your heart will be lifted up, knowing what you know about God, taking away all fear and confusion.

Without God, we are nothing.
With God, we have EVERYTHING.

People have forgotten that.

The world has been suffering for a very long time now, because people don't look to God anymore.

They have taken Him out of learning, out of institutions, out of government, out of homes, thinking God isn't needed anymore.

Of course, we all know who is responsible for that.

Anyone who buys into that lie, will never experience true love, success, nor peace.

Only God can give us those.

But the love, success, and peace God gives us, cannot ever be measured in world terms.

There is even no comparison.

Look deeply into your heart, and ask if you are happy, peaceful, and content, especially if you have no money, or even no job that seems to matter to the world.

If you can confidently say you are, then you have found God, for there are only two things in this world: 

24 No man can serve two masters
for either he will hate the one, 
and love the other; 
or else he will hold to the one, 
and despise the other. 
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Matthew 6:24 (KJV)

Have no fear.

Continue to trust in the LORD.

The Lord knows all, sees all.

It will be by His DIVINE Right Timing that all will become well in this world.

Those who truly love God, are making their stand now.

These will be very interesting times, indeed.

As always, it had always been a battle for the soul.

As God knows me, He knows my stand.

Where do you stand?

May all the work we do, and the life we live, serve God alone.
