God forgives sin immediately upon repentance, but it takes longer to build character. It is character, not forgiveness, that determines what God brings next to your life.
There is no mistaking a life transformed by God! It is not necessary, however, for those who have been truly transformed by Christ to convince others of the difference; the change will be obvious.
God encounters us in order to reveal His activity and invite us to become involved in His work. Encounters with God require us to adjust ourselves to the activity of God that has been revealed.
There could never be a crisis so troubling that God could not bring peace in the midst of it. The Lord will not necessarily take your problems away, but He will carry the load for you, and you need be anxious for nothing.
How do you prepare for meeting with God? Your experiences reflect your spiritual preparation- prepare yourself now for your next encounter with God.
The glory of the Lord is His presence. When God occupies a place, His glory is unmistakably evident! We must thoroughly prepare ourselves so that God will choose to reveal His presence in our lives. When He does, there will be no doubt that it is God!
