For the Scriptures say that God told Pharaoh, "I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying my power in you and to spread my fame throughout the earth."
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced."
"Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means 'God is with us.'" Christmas is such a wonderful time, I love seeing the family and handing out gifts to the little ones. I love to see that excitement in a little hand as they open their gifts. Every day is like that. Every day to us is a gift God wrapped and placed in our lives. We can choose to open it with excitement and live it fully or we can choose to ignore God and carry on with our lives on our own. There are those who will never change their ways and keep on living their lives. I sometimes look at the rich living their lives almost untouchable and it saddens me, because I know they are being blinded by this world. But then again God can change any heart and any life or use anybody for His purpose, like he used Pharaoh. In the end every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is the Lord. The great thing is that Jesus died for all, yes even the bad dudes. It is in us that other will find Jesus. We are His children, we open our gifts with excitement every day and the world sees us as we enjoy each moment with this gift. They will then want what we have and the search will begin. They will look in books, search online, maybe Google, maybe ask a friend or maybe even ask you and me and then we get to tell them that this gift is free. Then we get to live our purpose as we say: “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.”
As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced." Never underestimate the power of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit you are like Superman. Nothing is impossible. Just trust in God.
