1 Corinthians 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
God speaks to you through His Word:
I allow you to experience the dangers and sorrows of life before proving to you how I can deal with them for you. This I do by sharing them with you and then by conquering them with you. For my loved ones I make everything serve a good purpose.
The time will come for you to see every trial as fitting into My pattern. Of course, you know that they are not really trials if I share them and ease the burden of them for you. My child, this world is a vale of sorrow and difficulty, and none are more aware of it than those who seek My way.
Yet My joy and peace are experienced along that way and My presence, the gift beyond price, most to be coveted of all people.”
Romans 8:1-4 : There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.
My child, it is always right to condemn yourself for sin, but it is never My wish that you spend time in a state of condemnation. If there is true sorrow for what has been wrong, My forgiveness is instantaneous. In My sight you are made clean and worthy for My very best care.
Guilt can produce yet more unworthy conduct and the burden of guilt does not serve my purposes for you. My love not only sweeps away all attendant evil influences. Remember to allow no discouragement in sin and defeat. I am your Saviour, your life-long source of loving forgiveness and hope.
Thought for the day:
Come to Jesus and be free
Song for The Day:
Dry bones shall rise again
