Believing in God's Love

Matt 11:28 Come to Me all who toil and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Matt 7:9 Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks him for a loaf, will give him a stone? (10) Or also when he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent ? (11) If you then being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in the heavens give good things to those who ask Him!

The Lord is waiting to give you the heavenly joy and peace. The question is whether or not you are willing to take His yoke and learn from Him. You have not received the Lord's blessing and His blessing still has not flowed to others through you because you are still unhappy with His demands. The Lord said, "My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Brothers and sisters, do you believe in this word? Those who do not know God will say that God is harsh, that He reaps where He has not sowed and gathers where He has not scattered. But those who know God will say that His yoke is easy and His burden light. But the strange thing is that many of God's children are afraid of hearing about His will. They can sing hallelujah when they hear about God's love, wisdom, and power. But they are afraid to hear about God's will. What happened with our Lord? He did not call God's will His will; He called it "well-pleasing in Your sight." To the Lord, all of God's will is well-pleasing. Brothers and sisters, we have to believe in God's love. We have to believe that He loves us. This will put our heart at ease no matter what we encounter. Many times we ask for fish, and it seems that God has given us serpents. We ask for bread, and it seems that God has given us stones. We ask why God has given us a serpent when we asked for fish, and why He has given us a stone when we asked for bread. But, many times, when we think that we are asking for fish, we are actually asking for a serpent. What God gives us may look like a serpent, but it is actually fish. Many times when we think we are asking for bread we are actually asking for a stone. What God gives us may look like a stone but it is actually bread. We often think that God has not answered our prayer. We think that God does not love us. Actually, He is giving us the best thing. Our God is never wrong. The trouble is that many people do not believe in God's love. We need to remember that God causes heartbreaking things and difficulties to come upon us because He wants to perfect us and give the best things to us, not because He does not love us. If we believe that everything is well-pleasing in God's sight, we will sing with tears in our eyes.
