Which God they ask


1 Corinthians 8:6 says” yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

Yesterday’s Trivia Answer: The trivia question was which book of the bible has the most chapters? The answer was the book of Psalm. (I want to thank Deborah for participating in the trivia she reads her bible) For the rest of you who didn’t participate, I do hope that you start reading your bible. As a Christian it is imperative.

th6PZ9UNXYWhen you mention the name GOD, people will ask which GOD? As if there are other gods. Sounds pretty stupid to me but after thinking how people view a god. They believe that there are many gods, god of earth, god of healing, god of whatever they need their god to be at that moment. You have gods of universe or spirits and this new age god, which sees like many of the celebrities are taking a liking to.

And yet when you ask these people what their god does, they can’t give you one solid answer, they base their facts on nothing. They believe that they have peace and that they have some type of freedom. It’s not that their gods give them peace or this freedom that they speak of, what they are actually saying is “they do what they want to do” for they are their own gods.

But when tragedy hits close to him for these people whose name do they call on? I tell you whose name they call on, they call out to the God of Israel, the God of King of Kings, the God of Glory. That’s right you will see them being begging for prayers. I believe people like this know that there is a much higher God in Authority they just refuse to believe it. And being stubborn as they are they won’t turn down someone praying for them. My question is this, if you don’t believe in my God then why do you seek Him when you are in trouble? One day soon the whole world will see that their is only One True God and His name is God Almighty!

Today’s Trivia Question is: What did Jesus say is the greatest commandment?

I will post the answer on the next day’s devotion. Have a blessed Saturday and a Joyous fellowship in church on Sunday.

  1. The greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God, with all your heart, soul,mind, and will.

    And those people who don’t believe but ask for you to pray in their desperation, may just come to know the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the One True God, through your prayers on their behalf, through seeing how your life, your thoughts, your attitudes and motivations are different than theirs. So, don’t ask why, rejoice in the fact that they recognize, even peripherally, that you have a powerful God and that you have favor with Him and are loved by Him. And while you pray for their desperate need, pray that God will unveil their eyes and soften the soil of their hearts to receive the gift of salvation He so longs to give them. Come to Him in humble gratitude that He has allowed you to serve this lost, frightened and hurting sinner and thank Him for sending all those who ministered to you in the same way, when you were lost in your sin, a child of Satan by default of your sin nature. You have been entrusted with the priceless soul of God’s beloved creation, and have been highly blessed, with the privilege of interceding on their behalf. Don’t ask why, thank them for the privilege they’ve extended you!

    1. Good day Janet and thank you for commenting…I do hope that people do come to know the Lord God in whom I serve.

      I will be giving the answer tomorrow for the Trivia question that was posted today.

      1. Desiray, I didn’t mean to imply that you didn’t want the lost to be saved. I’m sorry if you took it that way! I’m really tired today and was probably not as careful with my words as I should have been.

        I think your comment was intended to communicate that we often wonder why those who have earlier communicated to us that they do not believe in God still turn to us and ask us to petition Him on their behalf, not that you in any way resent their request. I think their request is a result of desperation and the subconscious knowledge that they do in fact believe in God they have just refused to repent, seek His forgiveness and follow Him.

        I think that I, personally, don’t always realize the privilege I’ve been granted when the lost request prayer. I think it speaks both of our individual testimony and of their trust in us when they find themselves most vulnerable.

        Please forgive me for sounding critical. I’ve read enough of your posts to know without a doubt that you love the Lord and have a heart for the lost. I’m so sorry for my poor phrasing!

      2. Oh sister Janet I didn’t take what you said the wrong way, at all! I appreciate every word you wrote. You shared what was on your heart…God bless you
