Discovering what love is one day at a time
I love that the God of this world…the Creator and King. The One and Only Supreme God is a Grace FULL King.
We are insufficient, incapable, inadequate, full of shortcomings, we are lacking in ability and are powerless to do what is necessary to redeem the power of sin in our lives.
Jesus is our Rescue. He is our Redeemer. He is our Savior and He has delivered us from the power of death (sin) in our lives by His death and resurrection…
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that , that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.
Crud happens…in our lives on a daily basis. We are insufficient in our own strength to deal with everything that comes our way BUT GOD…His Grace is sufficient for all of our needs, because He is full of grace, mercy, love , joy, peace ,patience, kindness, goodness, self-control , justice, honor, strength….to name a few.
God is NEVER hopeless, joyless, merciless, grace-less, impatient, unkind, or without compassion. He is NEVER out of control, lawless or without justice, full of dishonor, or without strength.
He will never partner with our “less-ness” i.e. (hopelessness). He doesn’t agree with our desperation to cling to something that steals from us and others around us. Yet He will always present us with a better option. He calls or invites us into what He has already prepared for us. He invites us to partner fully with His perfect strength.
Can two walk together unless they are agreed? He cannot partner with what He is not. He is light and will not walk with darkness. He always calls us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
And so…when we start to feel the pull of the world around us… whether you feel distressed, or hopeless…whatever it may be…encourage yourself, strengthen yourself in the LORD Your God.
I will love you O Lord, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My Shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; So, I shall be saved from my enemies.
Our Redeemer LIVES…May we all exalt Him over EVERY circumstance.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two young men ages 19 and 13.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
