*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
Is 43:10 (KJV): *Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.*
*Insight and Highlight*
Is 45:5 *I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:*
Those who say there is no God were created by God.
Today, we will look further at reasons that could help atheists to desist from rejecting the existence of God.
We will mention two today.
First, Isaiah 45:5 says God had sustained and is still sustaining His people even when they refuse to acknowledge His presence or existence.
We must tell those who resist God of the love of God for them
Second, God extends His love to send rain indiscriminately just to encourage our love for Him and further express His love for us. Matt 5:45 says so *that ye may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven. For He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.*
God is good, and while It is human nature to refuse to care for people who do not care for them, God cares
It is human nature to deprive their enemies of life and their day to day survival, but God is not like this.
God made Himself a perfect example by giving those who are rebellious to Him a long rope evident in His nature as a longsuffering God, 2 Pet 3:9.
Those who say there is no God are enemies of God, but they can change today.
Jesus is daily showing His love for them while they yet live.
He wants them to be prayed for while there is still hope for them now!
He says to His children who have accepted Him to pray for their enemies
Today, God is waiting to reconcile you to Himself. He knows the human mind is far from Him, so He draws men to His Father, John 6:44.
God does not hate atheists. He hates their sins.
He will, however, consider the atheist along with his/her sins as wicked if he/she refuses to change. He will be angry with them every day. The psalmist further says if the wicked does not change, God *....will whet his sword;...* and prepare for Himself *.....the instruments of death;....* against....* His *.....persecutors...."*, Psalm 7:11-13
He is, however, willing to save the atheist and will not impute his/her sin upon him/her, Ps 32:1.
The atheist at conversion becomes a new creature. He/she will no longer be a rejecter of God but an anchor for God, 2 Cor 5:17.
God says you will be taught of Him. Therefore, yield to the word of God. He says when you respond, you will come to Him when He draws you.
John 6:45 says *It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.*
There is life in the word of God, accept and come to the open arms of Jesus today!
God does not hate the aithest, He hates his/her sin of rejecting God, ref Matt 1:21.
*Call to Word action.*
2 Cor 5:19 *To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Tell someone today of the love of God to all mankind.
Let every word of God sown find root in the hearts of aithests and unbelievers in Jesus name.
Good morning, all, and be blessed as you come into His presence today.
God bless you.
