“8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”
Today my prayer is that all that have been taught to be pure and without sin, may see the light of God and become aware that everyone is a sinner. I pray that all who believe their good works will make them deserving of the eternal life become aware that it will not. I pray that all who have hope but they are not quite sure if God will have mercy on them, become aware that they don’t have to doubt anymore. To all who have recognized themselves in all of the above: Jesus died to pay the price for our sins. Our hope and assurance is in Him. Believing in Him cleanses our sins, makes us pure and deserving of eternal life in Heaven. There is no other way.
“3 When my spirit grows faint within me, it is You who watch over my way. In the path where I walk people have hidden a snare for me. 4 Look and see, there is no one at my right hand; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.
5 I cry to you, Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”
When troubles arise in our life, who do we turn to? Who will wipe away our tears? Who lifts up our spirit? The Lord mighty and strong! He is our refuge in times of troubles and doubts. Reach out to the Lord. Call on His Name. Seek His help. His Love surrounds us every day of our lives.
“5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.”
God is generous. He answers our prayers. He IS with us through ALL our trials. Trust Him! Don’t let doubt enter your heart. Doubt is the enemy’s tool to keep us away from God. Where there is doubt, there is no faith – plain and simple. God is ever present, all knowing, all powerful. There is nothing in this world, NOTHING, that can be compared to His Might and His Love. How could we ever doubt HIM?!
