The sun is setting and all creation's thoughts turn to GOD. Things like, did GOD choose us, or did we choose GOD? We know GOD chose us in John 1:13, "...those who believed in HIS name, HE gave the right to be HIS children...not of the WILL of man, BUT OF GOD." It is also revealed to us here that being "BORN AGAIN" is something that GOD and ONLY GOD does. Acts 16:14, "GOD made Lydia's spiritually dead heart come alive so that she could HEAR and RESPOND to the Gospel Message." Our heart's are opened (GOD CHOOSING US) to hear the Message, and then WE CHOOSE to ACCEPT or REJECT JESUS CHRIST. DOES GOD "CHOOSE" US? ABSOLUTELY! DOES GOD ALLOW US TO "CHOOSE" TO ACCEPT OR REJECT HIM? ABSOLUTELY! ARE WE BORN AGAIN BY GOD? ABSOLUTELY! Is Salvation possible without these Truths? As the sun rises after a night of Prayer, GOD reveals that HIS Truths are not contradictory, HIS TRUTHS ARE SIMULTANEOUS AND PRESENTED SIDE BY SIDE. GOD CHOSE YOU, YOU CHOSE GOD, YOU ARE BORN AGAIN. In the silence of the night we go beyond the HOW'S, WHY'S AND WHAT IF'S, into THE QUIET SPIRIT OF GOD AS ONE, SIMULTANEOUSLY. ABSOLUTELY!
