Many of us remember the exact incident when we "gave our life to the Lord". We now had our guaranteed security, on our way to heaven for sure and certain. It's a scary proposition. I've heard so many say, "It doesn't matter what I do, what sin or sins I commit. From now on I'm guaranteed my salvation". That kind of attitude frightens me beyond description. A one time "prayer of confession" is the beginning of a lifetime commitment of love and obedience. It's the beginning of a journey, not an end in and of itself. We've been guaranteed that Jesus paid the price on the cross. He did the work of bringing peace between sinful man and Himself, and Jesus continues to do the work, every day, every moment. We yield and He gives us the continued ability. Yes, we may fail from time to time, but He stands ready to wash us clean, every moment, every day.
I know people bear under a lot of pressure, but without understanding that the Lord truly exists and cares very deeply for you, managing life can become more than overwhelming. When things are so difficult that it's becoming hard to see past today, He carries the load until you're able to shoulder the rest. Let's listen.
We're continuing in the 2nd chapter of Habakkuk. Don't ever allow the evil one to bring you to discouragement with life.
