God's Not Punishing You

No Matter Who Says Otherwise!

by Pastor John Hamel


“… God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” (Acts 10:38)


The Bible says that God gave His Son, Jesus, power over all the oppression of Satan.  


Elsewhere in the Bible Jesus Himself said that only good things come from God and that all evil comes from Satan. (John 10:10)  


Jesus’ half-brother, James, learned this fact directly from Jesus and stated it in his Letter to the Churches as well. (James 1:17) 


Are you experiencing sickness in your body today?  Maybe you have pressing financial concerns, concerns within your family, concerns for a love relationship, possibly you’re having problems at school or on your job. 


God is a good God and He wants to help you, whatever your problem.  He’s not punishing you for anything, no matter who may have told you otherwise.  He’s not mad at you, either, and He is definitely not the source of your problems.  The Bible makes this clear. 


Satan is the source of all your troubles.  God, through Jesus, is the source of your solution.  God promises to help you but God’s help always comes on God’s terms. 


In order for God to help you, you must first become a member of His family.  That’s an easy thing to do.  The Bible says, “Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) 


Someone said, “Saved from what?”  Well, saved from the penalty of your sins, of course.  


The Bible says, “…all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) 


If you are humble and truthful enough to admit that you have sinned and need God’s forgiveness, you can become a member of God’s Forever Family right now. 


Just say, “Jesus, I’m not fooling You or anyone else.  I need to be forgiven.  Please forgive me for all the sins of my past.  I choose You as my Savior and I reject Satan’s influence over me.  Please use Your power and help me, just like it says in the Bible.” (Romans 10:13) 


By praying that prayer, you just became a member of God’s family. (John 1:12)  God will move miraculously to help you now.  He made you for miracles and miracles for you. 


The secret to life is expecting the miraculous


God is not your problem.  God is your solution.  He wants you to place yourself under a Pastor who can help you to learn the Bible now. 


Pray “Father, please show me where to go to Church and I will obey You.  In Jesus’ Name.” (John 16:23)


Be blessed as you obey Him.    John and Barbara Hamel
