The Real Truth About God (Free Bible Course #1)

        This is the first part of our fourteen weeks long course which we spoke about here we believe that Gods word is the living bread to a lot of  souls who are hungry and thirsty for the true word of God out there ,that's why we have taken this bold step in bringing more light to Gods word,be sure to read through this post with your BIBLE at hand.
        Have you not heard people complaining about God? "Oh,God . I am so lonely ,". Nobody cares about me. Is God alive? Does He care? Is God punishing me for my sins? These agonising cry eat away people's happiness and confidence in a loving God.The world is full of lonely people,sick people,unhappy people etc.
       Many conclude that "if the past holds no meaning,the present no joy,the future no hope,and no one seems to care,including God Himself,what is there to live for? A quote by F.Scott Fitzgerald says “The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.” Its difficult when in ones state of loneliness he/she does not feel that there is any help anywhere for to rescue him/her.
          Many people embark on dangerous drugs like "akpeteshie" (strong drink),desperately searching for a means or escaping the problems of life. Some pop pills, others prostitution and others busy themselves acquiring things. All of them are chasing fragile bubbles, only to have them burst,disappearing into oblivion, leaving a greater void,guilt and depression.
        Is there more to this life?Is there anyone who really cares?
        I have good news for you today. Yes ,life is more than food and clothing. There is someone who really,really cares.

STORY OF JACOB
       Once a brother was driven away from his home,threatened with death by,his senior brother whom he had cheated.In the night,in his loneliness of guilt and hopelessness, Jacob felt that even God may have forsaken him.
       As he slept using a stone for pillow,he saw a ladder reaching to heaven with angels of God ascending and descending on it. The angels were God's way of saying "I care about you,I still love you more,I do not love you less when you have sinned.My love is unconditional.Amen" Read Genesis 28:15
      Someone might say, God is far away? How can i trust a God I cannot see or feel? Job 22:21 "
You can get yourself acquainted with God as with an earthly father.The Prophet Isaiah adds. Isaiah 40:26.God is real.He is in control.It is no wonder David said;Psalm 8:3-4.Have you not wondered if a powerful God who rules and sustains all galaxies is actually concerned with you and your problems out here on this rebellious planet?. Listen to what Jesus said: Matthew 10:31. As if to explain further how much He cares.Jesus added:Read Matthew 10:30. Oh what a God!

THE GREATNESS OF GOD 
       God not only made man and gave him a beautiful universe to live in but He is also mindful of our needs. Read Matthew 5:45. Someone has said that "if the sun were a little bigger or a little closer to Earth" our oceans would boil away." If the sun just a little smaller, or a little further away, our atmosphere would freeze",But you see God not only created all things, He sustains all things.
       The air we breath is a gift of God, an evidence of His care and love for us. Read Job 12:7-9,12. Listen to a promise from the pen of Jeremiah. Jeremiah 32:17. Nothing is too hard for Him.Nothing! Nothing!! Nothing is too hard for Him.Does that give you some peace and hope-knowing that God will not  meet anything in your life that He cannot handle? No problem is too small to bring to God. No problem is too large to bring to God who upholds the unnumbered worlds in His hands.
        Listen to one very encouraging characteristics of God Malachi 3:6 what a peace and confidence we can have knowing that there is nothing in our lives that can happen that is too hard for God to take care of. In fact He has a title: 1 John 4:8, Jeremiah 31:3. Nothing can separate you and me from the love of God. Read Romans 8:38.
        God loves us when we are unlovable He loves us whether we are rich or poor male or female,educated or uneducated,beautiful or ugly. "There is nobody else like Him." Do you still doubt His love for you? Listen to Isaiah 49:15-16. Love must be proved.If God so loves us,what is the proof? A friend in need is a friend indeed. When we were in trouble and Satan was harassing us and enslaved us what did He do? Read John3:16.
        Christ died in your place and in my place.He suffered the cruel lashing,the thorn driven in His forehead,the nails driven through His hands and feet,yet without protest He confronted Satan on his own grounds and on his own terms yet He won the victory for us.He died so we can live.He came down so we can go up.He became poor so we can become rich.He became the Son of man so we can become the children of God.This is what God is like.

STORY: A little boy and his dad went for a party.After the meals,a big bowl of peanuts was placed on the table.Everybody was to serve himself but once when it got to the turn of the little boy,he refused to take.He looked up into his dad's face.His dad said,"boy,take your share."Dad,you know my hands are too small yours are big,i can take very little but you can take more for me,please take for me" why don't you let God take control of your life?
