“There is no condemnation now for those who live in
union with Christ Jesus”.
(Romans 8:1 TEV)
God doesn’t expect us to be perfect. Did you know that???
He knows that failure is part of life!
He even sent JESUS to clean up our mess! He didn’t send Him to point
an accusing finger. Thank You Lord!!
No matter how bad you blow it in life, God will never condemn you.
HE is for you, not against you.
It’s encouraging, isn’t it, when you overcome a tough circumstance…or, you are trying to make changes in your life. Knowing that God is for you, and not against you, will change the way you respond to the times you slip up.
It should give you the confidence to keep moving forward in “faith”, because God is on your side. That’s a relief isn’t it!?!! He wants you to have “victory through Him” over your hang-ups and mess-ups, too.
It’s so good that God doesn’t expect us to be perfect on our lives, isn’t it!?!? That’s why He sent His perfect SON — to cover the sin that you
wouldn’t otherwise have been able to overcome.
You’re NOT a failure to God!
The ONLY time you fail is when you refuse to get up and keep going!
We have to believe God — that He DOES forgive our failures.
We are human!!
All we really have to/or should do, is TRUST IN THE LORD — trust in His forgiveness AND His LOVE for us!!!
Have you learned any lessons from the failures in “your” life?
How have they helped you grow spiritually?
WHAT do YOU think???
