We will be living in agony if we are always following the Lord yet do not receive a heart that knows that God had found us. We are in agony because we cannot see the love of God that is always showering on us
If a person can have joy, assurance, freedom in all things, not accursed; if a person can see God\u2019s mercy when he comes before the Lord even after he had sinned; this person really knows that Jesus Christ is looking for him.
A person who feels that he can still handle everything and he doesn\u2019t have any problems or a person who always worship the Lord but receive no convictions at all \u2013 these are the Pharisees and Teachers of the Law
They are obviously full of unrighteousness and \u201cillnesses\u201d. They always envy or get jealous of others. Despite all these, they still feel that they are alright. Such persons are rejected by God
Those who want to find God were already found by God. However, God had already rejected people who are like the Pharisees and Teachers of the Law
God created all things out of His love. However, some people has never seen or heard Him before, because they never think that they are sick or lost. The Pharisees and teachers of the law are such people
Lost sheep refers those who do not know God. It could also be those whose interests are on the flesh, thus failing to see God. Or, it could be believers who only rely on themselves and are numb towards God. Those who are numb towards God will not obey God
A person will receive his/her salvation unexpectedly. It is not dependent on his will or work. He receives salvation because he was chosen by God
Some people live in agony. Their hearts are filled with emptiness and they always worry. All these are because they have yet to know God and did not entrust their lives to God
There are some people who simply cannot die even if they wanted to. This is because God loves them and wants to preserve their lives on Earth.
God allowed them go through a lot of problems and hardships because He loves them and wants to win over them. It is because of their hardships and problems; they will be easily attracted to God\u2019s message as soon as they have heard them.
They face problems outside the church; but when they go to the church, they can only see the sick people and cannot receive any comfort. As a result, they left church and God
God\u2019s grace is in the church no matter how weak that church may be. Thus, they will very quickly be like people of this world when they leave church.
No matter how hard they strive outside, they can never become successful. The reason is such that if they become successful by their own might, they will never want to return and rely on God.
However, God will have greater mercy upon them when they turn back to God. After they\u2019d turned back to God, they will receive double blessings in return.
God will give us a lot of chances and reminders, telling us to turn back to Him when we had left God to pursue the things of this world. However, God\u2019s discipline will come upon us if we continue to harden our hearts to go against Him
God will use a longer period of time to discipline us in order to set us free from the things that bound our lives. He will make us willing to \u2018die\u2019 and be humbled
Believers who have become lifeless for a prolong period of time will eventually be lost. We should turn back to God with a upright heart before we are really lost
We should just let go of everything and take a rest when we realise that no matter what we do, we just feel \u201cdried-up\u201d and joyless. After we had taken a rest, get up and wrestle with God using His words, till we receive an answer from Him
We should read <Matthew 6:25-34> if we always fail to have a contented heart and keep worrying for our financial needs. We can keep on asking God \u201cis this true?\u201d when we read
However, some believers will only ask God to perform miracle when they feel \u201cdry\u201d. E.g. they will ask God for a pay increment when they are lacking of money. E.g. they will only ask God to heal them when they are sick. These people will be disheartened very easily
We must resolve the problem of lifelessness and restore Immanuel. If not, all sorts of problems will start appearing in our lives when we feel \u201cdry\u201d.
