Please never forget the graciousness of our Lord . Never forget His mercy , and the love He has for His children .
Please never forget that God is called our Father for a reason . He wants us to come to him as the children do for a reason. God wants our honesty, He wants our hopes , our dreams , our deepest desires . He wants to know what we yearn for , what we long to possess , and He wants to be the center of all of those things . Please never forget that God loves you, but even more than that, God likes you . He wants you to be happy, to be prosperous, to grow strong in Him, bold in the faith, and He wants you to be untouched by this world .
Please never forget that, just like our earthly fathers, God sometimes tells us no . He sometimes disciplines us , corrects us , and sometimes He even tests our knowledge and our strength . Sometimes God allows us to go through things because He wants us to be prepared, to be ready, to be courageous . He wants us to understand the weight of our calling as a Christian , he wants us to understand the freedom we have in Him .
Please never forget that God is perfect , and part of His perfection is free will- allowing us to choose whether or not we want to love Him , serve Him , be His . He leaves this choice to us because our God is not forceful . He will fight for us, but after time and time again of our constant rebellion , God will give us over to our desires . This is where evil comes in . Please never forget that God is perfect, and in his perfection, he allows us to choose for ourselves . For this reason , man often makes the wrong choice, and bad things happen . For this reason , evil sweeps the world - our own selfishness , our own hurt , or own pride cause our own destruction . God does not cause bad things to happen , but he allows us to make decisions , and unfortunately , human are sinful by nature . Please never forget God is good and perfect and anything not good and perfect is from this world and sin, not from God.
Please never forget that God does not need us . His plan will prevail, His will is carried out with or without us . The devil though, he needs us . Satan’s plans cannot be carried out unless we decide to allow him to use us . Please remember taking up your cross is a DAILY sacrifice, discipline, a choice NOT to follow the world , NOT to be used by Satan.
Please never forget that God uses ALL things- big or small . His voice is often quiet, and we do not find things we are not looking for. Please remember that prayer is the most important and the strongest weapon we have . Please remember that God hears our prayers , our cries . He’s strong enough for us. He’s waiting for us.
Please never forget that God does not care about your past. He just wants to be your future . Please never doubt that God will take care of you .
Please never forget that He promised to NEVER leave OR forsake you, and God ALWAYS makes good on his promises.
