Today Reminder - 14 December 2011

My prayer for you for today is that you will soar in faith and that you will be freed from the burden of sin through Jesus Christ our Lord. In Jesus Name.

Romans 3:22-24
We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.

The challenges in life can be overwhelming. It is funny in a way I think, when we start our days with a list of good intensions, but as the day progresses these intensions turn into irritations and before we know, we fall short of God’s standard. And then we start to doubt ourselves, we think we are not worthy to be ambassadors for God and we begin to question our own faith. And above all you feel foolish, because instead of showing God’s love you were angry or irritated. The worst part is that these terrible reactions have recurring events, and together they start to pull you down and you feel lost. You begin to doubt and that is when the devil starts to hammer you with negative thoughts. Yet, you are righteous. You are righteous because God declares you righteous! He declares you righteous with His kindness through Jesus that freed you from your penalty of sin. Yes, you are going to struggle and you are not perfect right from the beginning. It takes time and practise to be more like Jesus. What you must remember is that God is teaching and training you for what lies ahead. He is slowly moulding you into the warrior He designed you to be. No matter what lies in your path and whatever happens, remember that you are made right with God through your faith in Jesus Christ, and this is true for everyone, no matter who you are or what you did. Don’t give up, ask God to show you the way and to give you strength, courage and patience. You are not alone and you are a child of God. You remain in my prayers.

Waking up with rain outside, I get this feeling that God is telling me there is a new season of victories waiting on us.

Have an awesome day, friend of Jesus.
