You're No Accident
You didn't come into this world by accident. It wasn't your father or mother's idea that you be born into this world. It was God's idea. God said,
"before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee..." (Jer. 1:5). It was God that formed you in your mother's womb. God has a great plan and purpose for your life.
Why would God cause you to be born into this world? Because God loves you and has great plans for you.
God has a wonderful place all planned out for you for all eternity. His plan for you is beyond your imagination. You could never even think of all the good that God has planned for you. In Isaiah 55:9 it says,
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." In heaven, there are no tears, no sorrow, no crying, no pain, and no death, only life abundantly, for ever and ever (Rev. 21:4, John 10:10).
Look up, and see what great things God has planned for you.
It doesn't make any difference where you were born or when you were born. God knew you before you were born and He loves you. God wants you to spend eternity with Him forever. Oh, how much God loves you!
God knew what it would be like for you in this world. God knew what the devil would try to do to those who are born into this world. Therefore, even before you were born, Jesus Christ, God's Son, came into this world (almost 2,000 years ago), and took upon Himself all your sins and iniquities, all you sickness and diseases, and all your infirmities (Isa. 53:4,5). (Infirmities are weaknesses, and those things which you cannot do for yourself. God did them for you).
There is a place for you in heaven. It's all free, all paid for by the LORD, Jesus Christ. He came into this world that we could spend eternity with Him and the Father. The price is already paid, and God is waiting for you to come to Him and receive what Jesus prepared for you in Heaven.
Why listen to those who don't know what they are talking about? Why not find out for yourself, by studying your Bible. It's all in the Bible, everything you need to know about the great plans God has for you. The Bible is God's love letter to you. Read it from God's point of view, not the way most people read it.
God never intended for people to read the Bible wrongly. God made it simple, and people have made it difficult. People who think they know God, are trying to tell others about God.
But, if you will go directly to God, and ask Him, He will show you how easy it is to be all that He planned for your life, here on earth and forever with Him in heaven.
God is not a man that He should lie... (Num. 23:19). Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). There is no other way, no other truth, and no other eternal life than that which is yours, freely given to you by God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Oh, how the devil is working through people, and wants to get you away from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. Don't be deceived, by those who don't know the truth.
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding" (Prov. 3:5).
I know what it is like to be deceived by others who try to tell you what to do and how to do it. But, you do not need to be deceived by anyone. The Bible has all the answers you will ever need. But to get those answers, you must believe God and His Word.
I, myself, like millions of other people was also deceived for many years. But, over many years of reading and studying my Bible, the Holy Spirit helped me to know the truth and understand God and His plan for our lives. Now, that I know the truth, I want to do all I can to help others know the truth.
The truth is free. You do not have to pay for it. It's already paid for. It's yours free, just for the asking. In Jeremiah 33:3 the LORD said,
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."
If there is anything of importance that you do not know, call upon the LORD and He will answer and show you things you know nothing of. He is God, with the Father and the Holy Spirit. There is nothing too hard for the LORD (Gen. 18:14). He created the heavens and the earth and all that there on this earth (John 1:3,10, Col. 1:16). He loves working in the "supernatural." He started that way and still continues to work in the "supernatural."
Let me suggest something here. If you want the LORD to do things in your life, it is best if you go to Him in prayer and ask Him. God is love, and will not force anyone to come to Him. But He does love everyone, and wants everyone to come to the knowledge of His Son, Jesus Christ, and all that He has done for us. Therefore, it tells us in Acts 2:21,
"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
If you have never called upon the LORD and asked Him to come into your life and be your LORD and Savior, then do
it now. It is the beginning of the best thing you can do while still alive in this world.
If you ask Him, He will come into your life and you will know that you have an everlasting relationship with the One who created all things. You will know that He is LORD over this earth, and He is Almighty God along with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus said in John 6:37,
"All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." Jesus will never say no, to anyone who comes to Him, asking Him to be their LORD and Savior.
It's simple to do, just say from your heart,
"LORD Jesus, come into my life and be my LORD and Savior. Thank You Jesus, for receiving me into everlasting life in You."
Once you have received Jesus Christ as your LORD and Savior, never doubt His Word. Never turn away from Him. Even if you do make a mistake and go the wrong way, always turn back to Him, He will always take you back if you call upon Him and ask Him. Jesus said in Luke11:9,10,
"I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Jesus cannot lie. He is the Truth (John 14:6). Always ask the LORD when you have a situation you do not know what to do about. He loves you and will help you find the answer you need.
