Get to drink the 'happy juice' tomorrow and surgery the next day. Here are some thoughts on the greatness of God and the salvation He offers to "whosoever believes".
God never said we would be without pain and suffering in this present age, but He did promise to be with us in the midst of the challenges and storms which life invariably brings to our door step. He is even with us when we bring these things upon ourselves through sin or disobedience. How great a Salvation! How great is the love of the Father! If He went to such great lengths to save us by His great love even while in our sin, is not that same love extended towards us after salvation? Never deny God the freedom to forgive you and love you – regardless of the situation. Forgive 7 x 70 Jesus said, all we have to do is ask.
He can turn water into wine and sorrow into joy! He is our source, provider, defender, encourager, comforter and friend. He has never known defeat – the Cross was not defeat – He even planned that for our sake. Do we need to be reminded about the Resurrection? No foe can defeat Him, not even death and no god can stand before Him. He does not sleep or slumber and He is always on time. He is our remedy, our medicine for the sickness known as ‘self’. He is our calm in the storm, our peace in turmoil. He is our hope and our future. He is Immanuel – God with us! Oh! How great a salvation!
"For the Word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to those of us who are being saved it is the power of God." I Corinthians 1:18
