One problem with human beings is that we put way too much emphasis on understanding everything. If we cannot comprehend it with our human reasoning, we reject it.
We are the created beings; and God is the Creator. His ways are higher than our ways. His thoughts are far beyond our ability to comprehend Him from our human perspective (Isaiah 55:8-9).
God’s love for us, regardless of our religion, nationality, color and gender is unconditional. Yet, so many refuse to surrender their life to His loving kindness and grace.
It is through the riches of God’s grace that we receive forgiveness for our sins. There is nothing we can do to buy, earn or to obtain His forgiveness (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We simply humble our self and receive forgiveness as a gift through faith in Christ (John 3:16-18). We also receive a place in God’s family and we are co-heirs with Christ for eternity (Romans 8:17).
As Christians, God calls us to submit to and pray for our governing authorities so that it may be well with us (1 Peter 2:18-21); 1 Timothy 2:1-4). We truly prosper in this world, not by our hard work, but by our submission to God’s Spirit.
We do not evaluate our self by the world’s standards, nor do we live according to the example of those on this earth. We gain our self-esteem from God’s Word and Christ in us.
Father God, we ask You to grant us the wisdom to accept Your Word as our standard for our faith and our lifestyle. Work a submissive attitude into our soul, so that we can accept Your Truth at face value, rather than having to understand it before we accept it.
Teach us what it means to live a life of faith in Your faithfulness. Thank You so much for the sacrifice of Christ for us all. Give us a grateful heart and a new song on our lips (Psalm 40:3), so that we can praise You all the days of our life.
Thought for the Day:
If we truly want God’s blessings in our life, we can submit to the principles of His Kingdom and receive His righteousness, peace and joy in return. – Romans 14:17
