Who has ultimate authority? Humanity will always usurp authority from God. The Bible tells us that God spoke all things in existence. He created mankind. And the age old question by men is: "Did God really say" and "God said this, but will He really do this?" Everything we have belongs to God But when He comes to collect, how much do we say we want to keep? What is it you are holding on to? What do you say is yours? Are you ready for the consequences this will have?
By weeping over the city of Jerusalem, Jesus showed that He was fully human and fully God. The reason He wept was that He knew that the city would be completely destroyed and many killed because of their unbelief. The Israelites did not believe unto Him who was send. They did not see that the words of the prophets where fulfilled.
What is faith? It is a radical trust and loyalty to God. It can't be know if it is not revealed to you. Faith can't come from self or from the world. It can only come from God, because He made it known. Without faith we can't imagine the things we have faith for. Faith is a response from God revealing Himself to us. It is a divine gift of grace and our response to it.
We are to be thankful because God is good; meaning we are not good. While we were still sinners Christ died for us. Then why is it so hard to give God thanks! Because we are focused on earthly things instead go the things of God. Is your soul tired of man-made, churchy and religious things? Has your soul fainted? Are you at your wits-end and ready to cry out to the Lord? Give glory to Him and let Him deliver you from all your inequities.
