Luke 2:14
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

 

I know that there is a large population out there that believe that God is angry and eager to punish mankind.  I also know that there is a lot of people out there that believe that God punishes them and makes them sick and that makes them angry and fearful of God.

 

There are people who believe that God has killed or taken their children, ruined their business and caused destruction in their lives.  They blame God for all the ill will and negative circumstances in their lives.

 

But this is not the God that I know.  The enemy, Satan, has come to steal, kill and destroy, but God sent His only son Jesus to give mankind life.  And not just any life, but His God – Zoe life.  All we have to do is believe it and receive it.

 

But if we truly believe in our hearts that God is doing bad things to us and is angry with us, it is hard to believe the message of good news that He has sent to us.  We need a shift in thinking.  We need to learn who God really is and how deep His love for us really goes.

 

Let me encourage you today to open your mind to the possibility that God truly does love you infinitely more that you could ever imagine.  He sent us the answer in the form of His dear son Jesus.  Receive your answer today.  He is there waiting for you.
