What is wrong with you ? And why do you think so little of yourself ? When,What God has done for you through Christ Jesus gives you Great Value ! You don’t realize the Magnitude of all Christ Jesus did for you when He fully obeyed God? If you did you’d never ever worry about your Salvation. He gave us credit just as if we’d obeyed all of His requirements (Justification) In Christ we are perfect in God’s sight (Holy) because of the Blood .All that Jesus went through in Gethsemane was for us, being beaten all night long, thorns being pushed deep into His head,being beaten beyond recognition,dying and coming out the grave was all for us. He could have said Father no more,no more for those sinners but Love drove Him on to do what had to be done to please God for us! Jesus loves us very much and has made us acceptable in God’s sight forever. Jesus has taken care of every sin past,present and future! What a Mighty Awesome God we have! Recognize your worth and walk in Freedom! Remember Peter denied Jesus when He needed him the most, but Jesus never denied him or stop loving him in fact he wanted Peter to know that ( Mark 16:7 In essence He said be sure to tell Peter I’m alive”) And He wants us to know without a doubt we are forever safe in Him.
1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
I can only imagine! Job lost his children all of them,all of his animals,the sheep and all of the shepherds, all of his camels and his servants! And we think we have it bad! It’s really hard to loose stuff but loosing all of your family at one time can really take a toil on your mind and body. I get really upset when I loose things or when things are not going my way! But Job has a lesson here for us. Instead of running to our friends or Pastor,there is nothing wrong with that,but we must learn to do as Job did! He remembered to whom he belonged and keep his faith in tact. Sometimes when bad things happen we often wonder why all of this happened to good people,well Job was blameless in God’s sight and yet much trouble came to him. Often our trials come and take us by surprise and we are devastated! But Job went to Praise Position instantly! Immediately when Job heard all of the bad news he…
20 At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship21 and said:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”
22 In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.
Oh wow this just blows my mind! Job didn’t fuss and complain or try to blame others,no he went directly into Praise Mode! And so should we,after all God has allowed every trial that comes and He has planned a way out for us. If you’re in the midst of something and you feel you can’t take any more,just remember what Job did and try it his way,there is always something to praise God for,even in the midst of our worst times. Don’t Give Up!
Earlier this evening as I went to be with my Father,I was not questioning Him any more about my erratic sleeping habits,I went in like Mary and sat at His feet and I said,Father speak to me? And you talk about a well of water gushing up from within to overflowing, whew it did! I could not hardly stand it. As my Father started to remind me of His great love for me,and of His all-seeing eyes, and of His Almighty presence in me. I just wallowed in His presence as He told me of how He knows me and understands me,He reminded me of how He is holding me and keeping me,and that I do no have to worry or live in fear. Oh my words cannot justly describe His Holy presence as I leaned in on His breast,I thought about how John must have felt? My Father reminded me of promises He made to me many years ago,all coming to pass and that He’s going to make sure of it. Just like He did when I started blogging back in 2008,God had promised me you’re going to reach millions and you will not go to them. My mind went what? He said I’ll bring them to you. This was before I knew any thing about the computer or the internet. When I started saying I’m getting me a lap top,it just kept coming,then of course my brother brought me my first lap top,in August 2007.After our Mother died in July 2007 he said my computer would give me company. Being in God’s presence like this is awesome and you don’t soon forget it. I’m walking in my destiny reaching the multitudes for Jesus through my blogging,doing what I’ve loved for many years writing. God is awesome and His love for us never changes,He never ever thinks of leaving us! I hope this post is a blessing to you,be encouraged God is still in control no matter what you’re going through or what you’re facing. Oh yea as I read in 2 Corinthians I saw where Paul had many restless nights and he went through so much more 11:24~29 ,but God was always with him as He is with us,and I am so glad.
