The scripture for today, May 17 (5/17) is John 5:17 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
Psalm 115:12 says God is thinking about you all the time. When you’re walking, riding, talking, doing, coming, going. God is always working for you. A popular song a few years ago was, “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands.”
But does he always keep you from harm? He gave you free will, and sometimes you don’t make good choices. Others around you have free will, and they sometimes don’t make good choices.
If everything was perfect, this would be heaven. But it is not. Heaven is for later after we go through some tests. Regardless of what happens here, God is beside you if you fall, ready to get to work, ready to hold out his hand to lift you up.
How he loves you and cherishes you and cares for you. He always will if you follow him. Then, after you have fulfilled your own work here on earth, you can follow him right into that perfect world you wish you had now ~ heaven. Then wish will be reality.
THEY MET JESUS: HEARTS AFIRE. Jesus went public and got to work healing people. He was not a fake faith healer. Broken arms were healed, amputated legs grew back, people deaf and blind for life could hear and see. Lepers with their skin eaten away were instantly given a new body with healthy skin. Not all of them had faith. The dead he brought back to life certainly did not have faith. Yes, he had much work to do and he did it. To BUY NOW, click a picture or paste this: https://amzn.to/2w7sluE
