Devotional 1/8

Let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29

The struggle you’re in today, is developing the strength you will need tomorrow.

Is the God you serve a bipolar God? One day He loves you, but the next He sends you to hell? No, but it is possible that you value your judgment and opinions above God’s truth; and quite frankly, you are your own god! You think of God as a stronger version of you, but God is much greater, He is perfect and holy. We have a blameless and faithful Savior!

We have entered into covenant by the blood of Jesus! The blood was used to redeemed and to make contracts (or covenants). And Jesus became our blood sacrifice! He sprinkled of His blood on our conscience. Conscience:

  • an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.
  • the sense of the moral goodness or blameworthiness of one’s own conduct, intentions, or character together with a feeling of obligation to do right or be good.

The Lord has given us promises, and He is faithful to fulfill them. We must stand firm in believing! We must be confident that even if our actions contaminate us, or if our hearts condemn us: we are presentable to God, inside and out! Jesus, our Lord, made us right with God, he wiped our slate clean. This is the power of God unto salvation, that we have been ransomed from sin and its power.

I know it’s hard to believe, and even harder to fully grasp. But the Lord is awesome and works in mysterious ways. We have been justified by grace! We have become the righteousness of God. We have been redeemed! We can come boldly to throne of the Most Holy God! The inheritance we have been given is secure. All things concerning freedom (salvation, deliverance, and/or redemption) are available to us without restriction… when we ask for it in prayer!

And yes, this includes you who sinned earlier today, and who may sin tomorrow. The Lord said “IT IS FINISHED”. God will not fail in saving us, we are secure…. He is able, if we are willing to yield.

Let’s pray:

Most holy and benevolent God, thank you for your undeserved grace and mercy. Thank you for redeeming us from the hands and agenda of Satan. Thank you for your presence and conviction you have given us. I pray today for forgiveness of sins, and ask you to open the eyes of those who may feel afraid of losing their salvation or wondering if they ay are lost beyond return. I ask you to touch our hearts and minds, so that we may yield to your will my God. May we receive your help in our times of need. In Jesus name, Amen.
