Perhaps God isn’t perfect

December 18, 2010

People often say, “If there’s a God, why does he let bad things happen?” We expect God to be perfect, but if we’re made in God’s image, then perhaps God isn’t perfect. And that’s OK. But I also believe that partly we are God. We are part of God and God is something that’s in us and all around us.

Or perhaps you’ve made a god in your own image Ms. O’ Connor?

God’s Provision

August 24, 2009

I do want you, dear friends, to realise this principle of working with GOD, and trusting Him for all. If the work is at the command of GOD we can go to Him with fullest confidence for workers. And when GOD gives the workers, then we can go to Him for the means. We always accept
a suitable volunteer, whether we have funds in hand or not.

Then we very often say, Now, dear friend, your first work will be to join us in praying for the money to send you to China. As soon as there is money enough, the time of year and other circumstances being suitable, the volunteer goes out. We do not wait until there is a remittance in hand to give him when he gets there. The LORD will, in the meanwhile, provide the means, and the money will be wired to China in time to supply his wants. Let us see that we keep GOD before our eyes ;that we walk in His ways, and seek to please and glorify Him in everything, great and small. Depend upon it, GOD’S work done in GOD’S way will never lack GOD’S supplies.

Certainty of God’s Promises

August 24, 2009

When God appeared to Jacob he didn’t say, ‘The land that I promised to give to Abraham & Isaac I will give to you, but, ‘the land that I gave to Abraham & Isaac I will give to you.’ (Gen. 35.12). Yet Abraham & Isaac had not received the land.

God’s promise is as good as God’s giving the thing promised.
