When the doctors told one Pastor in the father's waiting room, "We're losing the baby's heartbeat," He went to God in prayer. God said to Him, "How much control do you have over this situation? "No matter the outcome of this trial, will you still dedicate your life to love and serve me?" God was teaching Him that the one true thing is to dedicate your life to your Lord. The first and great commandment is "thou shalt have no other gods between your face and my face." Not my will, but thine be done. When this same Pastor preached the first sermon to the Church on the day of Pentecost, the crowd noticed that He was not an educated man, but that he had been with Jesus. The power we have is in proximity with Lord God. In this world, all relationships end in pain and disappointment. However, with Jesus Christ, all relationships end in the hope of eternal life with our Lord. Whatever happens in this life, despite the pathologist's reports, God is merciful for all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.
In Luke chapter 9, Jesus prepared His true disciples how to be more than conquerors. We need to kill the “casual Christian” inside of us. For I was crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ liveth in me and the life that I now live I life by the faith in the son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.
May God richly bless you!
Your brother in Christ, Michael
