Life is Just Nothing Without GOD…

Think about it…
Where would we be if it had not been for God?

Where would we be if He had not sent His son to die for us?

Where would we be if He didn’t decide that we should be still living today?

Susan Quintyne’s song: “Christ is our Rock” starts with these words:

Who can we run to when the winds of life are blowing?

Who can we lean on in the storm?

Who’s our foundation?

On whom does our hope rest?

Who has been an anchor in our past?

CHRIST IS OUR ROCK….

Christ is indeed is our rock. Isn’t He your rock? He is surely mine…

Without a rock to stand on, especially in the rough times, we surely will fall. For the winds of life get so rough and the waves of this world would seek to take us over time and time again, but without the real ROCK, Jesus, we are no where. And that’s why I confess that Life is nothing without Him.

You may or may not be at a place to identify with what I am saying today, but I hope that these words would be of encouragement to you and help you to continue or see for the first time that LIFE IS NOTHING WITHOUT GOD!


There is so many different scriptures which confirm that Christ is indeed our rock. Let’s face the truth. He created us, He knows everything about us. He has plans for us and when we accept who God is our lives then we would understand that really and truly we can’t live and operate without like. Life is just nothing without Him in our lives.

Where would you be if it wasn’t for God? Isn’t He the one who created you? He is the One who knew us before we were born. He has plans for us and not just any plans, good plans.

First of all God created us – So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:27)

He sent His son to die for us – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(Joh 3:16)

He knew us before we even were considered by our parents – Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. (Jeremiah 1:5)

He has great plans for us – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11)

He saved us, we could not do it ourselves – Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us (Titus 3:5).

The Word of God confirms that He is the one that we can lean on when things get rough. He is God. He is awesome!

Where would we be if we didn’t have Him to call in in the storm? He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. (Psalm 107: 29)

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4: 39)

Think about it! Who is your true foundation? 

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11)

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. (Psalm 18:2)

On whom does your hope rest?

Your hope should be resting in the Lord. If there is one that we can hope in and trust, that one would be God. The Word of God tells us that we serve a God who’s hope is sure.

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; (Hebrews 6: 19)

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine. (Psalm 33:18-19)

Who has been you anchor in the past?

If it wasn’t the Lord, here is a reason why in 2015 your mind should change?  Just look at Psalm 46:

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

Life is just nothing without GOD…

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (John 15:5)

HIS VERSION OF YOUR STORY IS MORE AWESOME THAN YOU CAN EVER IMAGINE

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Sometimes when I think about God I am soooo amazed at His awesomeness. I am always concerned about living God’s purpose. I see myself as a very purpose-driven purpose and so, I encourage everyone around me to live on purpose because it’s the only way to truly be all that God has called you to be.

Sometimes we make plans and carve situations in our mind a certain way, but when the GREAT AND AWESOME God reveals Himself the us, the situation turns out a completely different way than we had thought and imagined it would be. Sometimes He has to turn up things to save us, but in everything there is a GREATER, BIGGER and sweeter plan He has for us down the road. Isn’t God Awesome?

Remember, what God does not allow, he hinders and very often when He does what He has to do in our lives it turns out greater over time; greater than anything we every thought or even imagined.

Very recently I prayed about a situation and after praying I started to play out in my mind how the situation would turn out…but God had a different plan. When God did respond to me about the situation, His action was totally different from what I had imagined. His result was better than my imagined result; His outcome was something I never imagined would happen and IT WAS BETTER. IT WAS WAY HIGHER than what I thought it would be and in the end I was well-pleased.

Sometimes we go through losses and we wonder why? We get anxious for a “better and happier” future. So we begin to imagine and think of how this future should be and we begin to pursue things to fulfil our own desires. Sometimes God just wants us to sit back, relax and wait on Him for His move because He knows best and His ways are HIGHER…much HIGHER than ours.

How many times do we imagine and see and think it would be one way and turns out a different way? The key thing is trusting in God and waiting on Him to do what He has to do for: my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

His ways are perfect and once we trust in Him He will make every dream, situation, passion…everything perfect for us according to His well. Consider what Proverbs 3:5-6 says and live by this:

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths

I have found that God fulfils my dreams and desires, but His version is always more amazing.

Sometimes we just have to wait on Him until He creates HIs own version in us. You may have dreams and desires, but commit everything to God. Wait on God. Let God lead you and you will see that His version of your story is much higher than anything you ever thought or imagined.

TODAY PRAYER

Heavenly Father I thank You for loving me and thinking great things about me. You created me and You know what is best for me. God I acknowledge that You have the best for me so I wait on Your best.

Direct my dreams, thoughts, and ways. Give me the patience I need for You to craft your version of the story in me. Make a difference in me in 2015 that as You reveal Your story I will share it with all that I come in contact with that You may be known. In the name of Jesus. AMEN
