Good Morning!!! This is the day the LORD has made........... LET'S REJOICE!!! I am so very Thankful that God makes all things NEW! Let go of the past. Don't look in the rearview mirror, for it's purpose is to see what's BEHIND us! Look AHEAD, for with it, comes EVERYTHING OF GOD..........
When I was praying this morning, I was Thanking Jesus for being Faithful to His Father in what He did for us! How astounding!!! Can you imagine if He wasn't? It wouldn't matter how much we Repented, there would be NO FORGIVENESS!!! NO REDEMPTION!!! NO WAY for us to come to God!!!
Oh, but look what Jesus did......... Was it easy? NO! Was He lied to by the enemy? YES! Did He feel abandoned by His Father? YES!!! But, guess what??? HE DID IT ANYWAY!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU JESUS........ How can this be, that He would look at me and call me Worthy?!
Now let's look at US............ A quote by Johnathan Edwards is simple, yet POWERFUL - "Resolution one: I WILL LIVE FOR GOD. Resolution two: IF NO ONE ELSE DOES, I STILL WILL" Obedience is the key to success, dear Friends! If we will give up our wills, and do the Father's Will, there is nothing He won't do for us! If we remain FAITHFUL to God, we will live for ETERNITY WITH HIM!!!
Will it be easy? NO! Will the enemy lie to us? YES! Will we sometimes feel abandoned by God? YES!!! But, guess what??? KEEP DOING IT ANYWAY!!! Just because the world crowds one road, that doesn't mean we have to follow! Doing what's RIGHT takes guts! Living for Jesus is serious business! It takes all we have! We are either ALL IN, or we aren't at all. There is no room for wishy-washy Christians! "So, because you are ludewarm - neither got nor cold - I am about to spit you our of my mouth." (Revelation 3:16) "Choose this day whom you will serve." (Joshua 24:15) Do it while there is still time!!!
It's plain and simple - Our Worth is found in Jesus, NOT this world. Our lives are NOT about us, but it's ALL ABOUT JESUS. If we think we don't need Jesus NOW, then we will spend Eternity without Him! All that will matter in the end, is what we did with Jesus. Don't be caught DEAD WITHOUT JESUS!!! Let our lives SHINE the Light of Jesus! May our words and our actions line up with the Word of God! Do what's RIGHT, even if no one is doing it! And, most of all............. We see how Jesus' Faithfulness to God turned out in our favor! That's enough right there for us to be FAITHFUL TO GOD, YES?!
