“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 had done for us. 2 Because of our faith Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.”
-Romans 5:1-2 NLT
Often times we wake up in the morning and our problems slap us in the face.
No good morning, no hot coffee, just a ‘slap’ in the face.
The world has taught us to accept its ways. In this acceptance we not only tell ourselves , “…this is the way life is…”, we tell others the same thing.
We say, “…Grow up! Stop complaining this is the way the world is!”
But we never stop and think once that God did not create us for this type of unacceptable, depressing lifestyle of settling for the world’s abuse.
Instead God wanted us to have so much more!
In the second part of John 10:10 Jesus tells us He came so that we may have ‘life’ and, “…have it in abundance.” ~HCSB
If we know how God feels about us; if we know what God’s intent is for us; then we would never be depressed. We would cease to be awakened in the morning by the ‘slaps’ of the world’s situations.
The scripture says that by faith we have been made right in God’s sight.
This has been done because of what Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of Jesus we ALL have the authorization to be ‘brought’ into a “…place of undeserved privilege…”
When we KNOW all of this to be God’s Word, we will NEVER fall short because of doubt, worry and fear.
We will have strength in God’s gift of faith because we will, “…stand and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.”
His promise to us.
God and His promise is the same today as it was yesterday and will be tomorrow.
May God continue to give you strength, wisdom and direction on your journey in Christ name.
Until next time, live in peace!
