Victory Vitamin Blog – Genesis 18:14

“Is anything too hard for the LORD?”

-Genesis 18:14 NIV

Abraham was 100 years old, his wife Sarah was 90.  God revealed to them that they were going to have a child in their old age and they both laughed.  In response, the LORD to Abraham, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?”  Have we too, forgotten that God performs miracles?  Do we doubt His ability to do amazing things in our lives today?  We should expect to be surprised by God!  (I know, the whole point of a surprise is that it’s unexpected)  God has given us the gift of faith, and God has proven that He will act in surprising ways to display His love for us.   For example, it’s surprising that God became human, took our sin on Himself and died to remove them!  That combination of faith, and God’s surprising track record should give us complete confidence that God will continue to work in our lives  in amazing and surprising ways still today.  God can and will display His surprising and miraculous power in your life, the greatest surprise being the love of a perfect God, given to sinners like us.

Victory Vitamin Blog – Leviticus 19:18

“Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”

Leviticus 19:18

Some view the Bible as a big book of rules.  They clearly haven’t read it.  Of course there are commands from God contained in the Bible but that shouldn’t surprise us in the least.  Families have rules.  Those rules are not there to annoy children or spoil their fun.  Rules are in place because of love.  Rules help to reduce chaos and protect children from harm.  Our heavenly Father also has rules.  They are set in place out of love.  Jesus died to pay the price for our sins and to show us how serious the situation is.  Sin is not a game.  God gives us rules to help us avoid sin and protect us from harm.  We may think we know best, but God’s way is a better way.  Leviticus contains many laws from God, but Jesus summarizes all of God’s law by saying, “Love the Lord with all your heart…and love your neighbor as yourself.”  We know God loves us, the death and resurrection of Jesus prove that.  God’s rules are given out of love and our response is motivated by love.  We seek to live our lives according to God’s will for our own good, for the good of others and to show our love for God.  It’s a better way.

Sadly, some see the Bible as just a book of rules.  They’ve never taken the time to read about God’s love displayed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.  Of course, there are rules in the Bible.  Since God is our heavenly Father, He is wiser than we are.  If you have children, I assume there are rules for them in your household?  Why should it be any different for us as God’s children?  God’s way is a better way!
