2 Timothy 2: 25,26
Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

I have heard it said, “If Jesus is not your God then the Devil is.” I have heard it said, “A man who does not believe in God will believe in just about anything.” Before I came to believe in God, I was lost. I was unhappy and depressed. I constantly searched for happiness in nightclubs, in bottles, in boxes of cookies or in unhealthy relationships. I have heard it said, “God has put a void in our lives that can only be filled by Him.” I used to walk around with emptiness inside me the size of the Grand Canyon. My problem was that I didn't know how to let God fill it. The Bible says, “Knock and the door will be opened unto you. Seek and Ye shall find.” Thankfully, God put people in my life that taught me how to find Him. And when I deeply desired to find Him, He was there. If you are having a hard time with the God thing, just ask Him to reveal Himself to you and He will. That is His promise to all who seek Him.

Thought to meditate on:
I had someone ask me once why I believed in God. I remember having lots of answers but none I could put into words. I told him it was better felt than telt and I meant it. God is a feeling I have. I just know He is there. And nothing in this whole world could ever convince me otherwise. If you want that kind of confidence in God ask Him to become that real to you. I am not quite sure how I was blessed with such an awesome relationship with God but one thing I know, if He gave Himself to me He will give Himself to you also. I'd like to think I am more special to Him than any of you, but I know I'm not.
