It is always good to open with the word of God and to set the heart to receive the flow of God’s word. If you know that you are saved, there is nothing to worry about. Give God all the glory and we look to Him the Author and Architect of our lives. Let’s read the word together.
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live and walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.” Romans 8:1
To all my brothers and sisters in the Lord and the faithful in all things lawful greetings and the Peace of God our Father. What a mighty God we serve in these days of uncertainty. This morning if you know the Lord is blessing you just shout.
When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you are free from condemnation! Is there something that you feel guilty about? If you have repented, the Bible says He takes your sin and throws it as far as the east is from the west. He casts your sins into the sea of forgetfulness. God actually chooses to forget your sins! That means your sins are completely removed. In fact, they aren’t even yours anymore. Your sins are charged to Jesus’ account never to be remembered. On the cross, He cried it is finished. That cry included us, and the Blood of Jesus Christ God’s Son covered us henceforth.
Don’t let the enemy dig up your past or try to make you feel guilty for something that happened a long time ago, or even yesterday. Don’t let your brothers and sisters tell you about your past. If they do then they need Jesus in their lives. The enemy is called the “accuser of the brethren” and he works overtime to bring you down with false accusations. Be confident that God doesn’t remember your past. You are free from condemnation through the blood of Jesus Christ. The next time the enemy brings up your past, declare that you are free from condemnation in Jesus’ Name! It is happening right now as I write to you and the enemy will use the people close to you to bring you to your knees. He knows your weakness and he will get to you by any means. Remember he waited until Jesus was hungry to test Him. But Jesus fired back at him with a double punch of the word of God. Will you today? Or, Can you?
As we close this morning and thank God for another day, though some will be reading this email in the second watch of the night or the third watch, let us bow before Him in confession and ask forgiveness.
Heavenly Father, thank You for setting me free in Jesus! Thank You for forgiveness. Thank You for washing me clean and making me new today. I receive your grace and mercy so that I can be a vessel used by You today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Simple and to the point, and I believe the God who hears in secret will reward us openly. Have a blessed and wonderful day.
Your servant and brother,
