Does GOD Still Love Me?





Does GOD Still Love Me?





 Praise GOD for all of you!!!




Life will most definitely bring some difficult times, that is for sure!




I am 50 years old and  I know I should of been dead a long time ago!




And in my 50 years of living here on this cold dark world we call earth, I tell you the truth, bad things always happen!




Difficult times will always come, that is for sure.








Very hard tests always arrive in our lives at different times. Hard tests, trials, tribulations are sent to us from GOD at regular intervals throughout the years we walk on earth!




Please be patient, I am leading to a very serious point.




Have any of you ever noticed that heartbreaking times always happen at a semi-regular intervals?




Most of you would agree with me on that right?







In the past, when terrible things would happen, I would usually get angry at JESUS!




Or if my boss fired me for no reason whatsoever, I would get angry at my boss, or the manager etc etc.




Or many times I would even get angry at myself too! For example, if I made a huge major mistake in my life, sure I would get angry at myself!






Sometimes when life would hit me upside my head real hard,  when my heart gets shattered, and tons of demons enter me and attack me, I would get very upset with JESUS.......




Maybe I would not express this to people, but deep inside JESUS knew exactly what was going on. No I did not go on the Internet telling everyone I was angry at JESUS. But as I laid in bed being attacked with depression, lust, despair, hurting and pain, GOD and his son JESUS knew darn well who I was really angry at!




But now when the bad times happen, I am practicing to make sure I do NOT get angry at JESUS......... And yes this does take practice amen to that.




Now when all hell breaks loose in my life, I immediately try to make sure I am not getting angry at GOD...... This is very important to practice and I will share with you why in just a few minutes!




We have some scriptures in the bible where GOD shares with us what to do when all hell breaks loose in our lives such as - 




James 1:2 – Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way consider it an opportunity for great joy.




And when you practice having great joy and being thankful to GOD when bad things happen, something amazing happens!




Actually there are many amazing things that happen when you count it all joy when the bad times come!




Instead of you getting angry at GOD, if you practice having joy when the bad things happen, now you will have peace with GOD instead of anger. Or you will have peace with GOD instead of having animosity with him.




Instead of being infested with more and more demons by getting angry at GOD, now practicing joy helps you to get more and more free from the demonic.

You see as bad thing after bad thing kept happening, I thought GOD did not love me anymore! I literally believed this demonic lie and by believing this lie, that opened up even more demonic doors inside of me for the demons to rain down hell in!




And I was also sure that his son JESUS did not love me much either! I mean how could JESUS love me when I kept getting my heart broken, or my soul shattered, or sick, or fired by my bosses etc etc etc....




The demons will be quick to tell you that GOD does not love you as soon as bad things happen to you! This is for sure and you better expect these attacks!




The demons will talk to you over and over again and point out that more bad things are happening so surely GOD does not love you anymore, surely GOD has abandoned you to suffer here on earth all alone in your pain!




I use to listen to the demons. And when I did that, all kinds of monsters would enter me and attack me! Why? Because I was listening to demonic lies that were UN biblical. And when you do that, the demons can get permission from GOD to enter you more and more as you continue to listen to their lies!






We cannot listen to the demons when they say that GOD does not love you, when GOD says he does love you in his holy bible and with his SPIRIT in you!




GOD in the bible tells us over and over and over again how much he loves us and how his love will never end for you! Not ever for all of eternity.




So we have to decide who we will believe. We will trust GOD that he DOES love us for all of eternity? Or will we trust the demons who are whispering to us that GOD does not love us anymore when the bad things happen in our lives?




The choice is yours, but if you start to doubt GOD'S love, a huge HUGE demonic door will be opened in your heart for demons to enter and attack you. And now all hell will rain down on top of your head because you are doubting GOD'S love for you!




This is very VERY DANGEROUS TO DO!




So when if your husband divorces you, or if your baby dies, or if your boss fires you for no reason whatsoever, are you going to listen to the demons who tell you that GOD does not love you anymore? Or are you going to listen to GOD in his holy bible who says that he will love you for all of eternity?




Once again which path will you choose to believe?




As bad things continue to happen in our lives on a semi-regular basis, we must practice to rebuke the lies of the demons who are whispering to us that GOD does not love us anymore. We must rebuke these lies and refuse to listen to them!




I mean bad things happened to Paul over & over & over again, yet GOD wrote 1st Cor 13:4 through Paul, now that is amazing!!!




Did you know bad things also happened to JESUS?




Most of his own family did not believe in him. The temple elders did not believe in him, at least most of them did not. Most of the religious people did not believe in JESUS either.




Most of his own people whom he CREATED, did not believe in him! IN fact a little later, they voted against him in favor of Barabbas.....




JESUS' own disciples abandoned him when he needed them the most except for John.




His own people tried to kill him on a few different occasions.




Then he was tortured for many hours in various ways and had to die naked on the cross.




Just imagine being totally naked in front of your family, friends, and enemies, yes being humiliated in front of your enemies while naked!




Just imagine the smirks on the Pharisees faces while the Romans whipped and beat him!




Yes bad things happened to GOD'S SON JESUS, and if they happened to JESUS, they will happen to us too for sure, amen to that!




Bad things happened to Paul, Peter, John and everyone else on earth!




Let us face it, BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO EVERYONE ON EARTH, not just you!




I know the demons will tell you that you are the only one suffering in pain, but those are all lies! Bad things are happening to every single person on earth, this is an absolute fact, NOT just you!!!!




But here is one of the keys - GOD loves you!




GOD loves you and he will never stop loving you, not ever ever ever ever.




There is nothing you could ever do to make GOD stop loving you, NOTHING!




Look at this scripture -> 


Romans 8:38 - 38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[p] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. 




There is nothing the demons could ever do to make GOD stop loving you!




Just because bad things happen does not mean GOD does not love you anymore! Those are all lies and we have to practice saying no to these lies.




Bad things happened to JESUS but JESUS never doubted his DAD loved him!




Bad things happened to Paul, Peter and John yet they LEARNED that this does NOT mean GOD does not love them! They learned this just like you and me have to learn this too!




 As bad things kept happening to me over and over again, I use to doubt GOD'S love for me too. So I know exactly how you feel tonight as you try to make it another day thinking GOD does not love you anymore.




And why? All because bad things are happening in your life.




I felt as all hell kept raining down in my life, that GOD did not love me, that JESUS did not really love me either!




When other people said how much GOD loved them I just felt sick inside as I heard them talking about GOD'S love for them. Even now, I am still in the process of trying to get new revelations from GOD on how he loves me, because I am really lacking in this area of my life, of my heart and soul! I bet many of you are too!






So we have to realize this ->


1). Bad things will always happen on and off, on and off, this is how GOD designed the world to be.




2). Just because bad things are happening, does NOT mean GOD does not love you, those are lies from the demons!




3). Bad things are happening to everyone on earth, not just you! You are not being singled out by GOD, of course not!




4). If bad things happened to GOD'S son JESUS, they will happen to us too! You better believe that and you better start getting ready for them by abiding in JESUS and the holy bible the best you can with the grace GOD is giving you!




5). When we believe the lies of the demons that GOD does not love us anymore, now ALL HELL will rain down on top of our heads.




6). Remember what James says in James 1:2 - When bad things happen, consider it an opportunity for great joy!






 But why? Why do we practice having joy in the pain? Because GOD uses these trials and tribulations for our good! And James had learned that. Since James had learned that GOD uses all things for our good, GOD wrote James 1:2 speaking through James!




Here it is again - James 1:2 - Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way consider it an opportunity for great joy!




When those bad times come, we can practice loving GOD through the pain. We can practice praying more through the times of hurting.




We can practice worshiping GOD even though hell is raining down. We can practice loving one another even though you feel like crying inside instead. We can practice our spiritual warfare and get stronger and stronger as time goes by!




Instead of getting angry at GOD, we can practice all of the wonderful things that the bible instructs us to practice instead. And by doing that, it is shocking, JUST SHOCKING HOW MUCH BETTER OUR LIVES WILL GO THEN BY PRACTICING THESE NEW ATTITUDES..........




GOD is not punishing you with these trials and tribulations, no no no HE IS BLESSING YOU THROUGH THESE hard times!




These hard times come from GOD to bless us, to shape us, mold us and change us into the very image of his son JESUS!




Ecclesiastes 7:14 - Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when the hard times strike REALIZE THAT BOTH COME FROM GOD!




Yes GOD sends the good and the bad, the happy and the sad times into our lives. It is NOT satan ordering it, it is GOD ordering it!




GOD uses the hard trials to change us from the inside out! And guess what? It works!!!




I am so much different than I use to be, what a miracle from GOD!




I am so much different than I was just 10 years ago, it is shocking!




The truth is, I am so much different than I was just 1 year ago, even that is shocking and guess what?




So are you! You are so much different too whether you realize it or not!




Praise GOD, praise GOD for you! For changing you, molding you and shaping you!




You are so much different than you use to be too. why? Partially because you are going through the hard times that GOD SENDS into your life. This is one reason why we cant be joyful when the hard times strike us. Because GOD is using them for our good O PRAISE GOD!




SO if you are angry at GOD tonight because of all of the bad things happening, repent! I say it again, repent, and talk it all out with GOD.




When we get angry at GOD, we gotta be mature enough to repent, because it is wrong for the children to get angry at their PERFECT DAD.






So now step 1 would be to repent.




Step 2 would be to talk it all out with GOD sharing how you were wrong, sharing how you were acting immature. Sharing how you feel so embarrassed now that you are learning more truths about how he uses these hard times for your good. To bless you with them, to shape you and mold you more and more into the very image of JESUS CHRIST.




Do not be embarrassed, I have done all of these sins too, on multiple occasions unfortunately for me.




Step 3 would be to realize that GOD will never ever ever ever stop loving you, NOT EVER!




Step 4 would be to start realizing that hard times are always going to happen as long as we live here on earth in the flesh! There is no way around this fact, amen to that!




The next step would be to start realizing what James said -> Consider it an opportunity for great joy when the hard times come because they are very good for you!




GOD has to give us the hard times so we can practice all of the wonderful things GOD is teaching us in his bible, through his spirit too
When the hard times strike, you can practice 1000 different wonderful things and as you practice guess what?




You will get better and better at everything that GOD is teaching you and that is great news! You can practice to be more patient, more kind, more loving, more caring, more compassionate and all of these things are wonderful to practice as GOD is slowly changing your soul from the inside out into the image of his son JESUS!




And as you keep changing inside more and more guess what else? You are now becoming more and more Christ like and that IS AMAZING!!!




Just a year or two ago I was angry at JESUS, yes I got a long way to go in my walk hahah so pray for me!




Then 2 days later when he super blessed me, I felt so ashamed, so embarrassed and I had to repent even more for getting angry at him in the first place!




So why even go there in the first place? Why even bother getting angry at GOD when he is perfect and he never makes mistakes!




GOD never sins, he never messes up, he never makes mistakes, he has no darkness in him and because this is true, check this out -->>>




GOD'S plans for your life including the good and the bad ARE ALSO PERFECT!




Even when the hard times strike you, that is a PERFECT PLAN THAT GOD is playing out in your life!




But how can we know that the hard times are perfect to go through? Because GOD is PERFECT & HE NEVER MAKES MISTAKES!




So the good things that happen in your life are perfect, amen to that? AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




The middle of the road things that happen in your life are also perfect, amen to that too!




And this also means that the BAD things in your life are perfect too! How can we know? Because GOD is perfect and he never makes mistakes. Yes GOD is using the bad things that happen in your life to bless you and change you into the image of JESUS and this is a PERFECT PLAN!




O PRAISE GOD!




And even the terrible things that GOD has planned out for your life is also perfect. But how can we know that?




Because GOD IS PERFECT! GOD never MAKES MISTAKES, not ever ever ever.




Everything that GOD is doing in your entire life is a perfect plan! There is NOT one single mistake in the plan, not one!!




So James says - 1:2 - Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way consider it an opportunity for great joy!




And what else does GOD say speaking through James? How about ----------->>>>




James 1:12 - GOD blesses those who patiently endure temptations and trials.




So even tonight, I am not doing that well myself either. But LET US COUNT IT ALL JOY for it is wonderful news!




Why is it wonderful again Garrett?




Because when the hard times strike I can practice all of the wonderful things GOD has been teaching me & I will get better & better at them.




Because I can practice patience in the pain, I can practice loving people and GOD too in the pain I am suffering in.




I can endure the temptations patiently and then GOD promises blessings!!!




Because these very hard times humble me, they humble you too and when we are more humble, that is a very very GOOD THING!!!







GOD LOVES YOU, GOD loves you, get it through your thick skull hahahah GOD loves you......




So children of GOD, count it all joy as the hard times strike your life and mine too, and I am NOT saying this is easy to practice!




IN fact having joy and being grateful when the hard times strike is one of the harder things to practice as a child of GOD!


But the rewards will be so worth it........




Rewards like staying in love with GOD, having peace, getting some joy in the pain, keeping fellowship with JESUS during the hard times etc etc.




Rewards like being more and more demon free because you rebuked them when they told you GOD did not love you! You refused to listen to their lies and now they have gone off to go tempt someone else instead of you!




And practicing to be patient while enduring temptations will bring even more blessings, now all of this is great news!




GOD loves you and you better get use to it because his love for you will never end, not now, not ever for all of eternity!




Come on and repent, come on back home to your DAD and his CHRIST.......... Come on back home child of GOD, we all miss you!!!




Repent, let the anger go, realize GOD is powerful enough to use these hard times to bless you and change you into the image of JESUS!




Come on back home GOD loves you!




Love, your servant Garrett
