Please know that no where in the Bible does God tell us to PUT ON guilt; NOR, to PUT ON feelings ...
But RATHER, the Bible tells us to PUT on the FULL ARMOR of GOD!
Did you know that the Helmet of Salvation keeps Satan's attempts away to Discourage and cause you to doubt God in whom He is and also in who you are to God!
Keep your helmet on, or you will turn into a "pillar of salt" like Sarah from disobeying God's good command, "Don't look back!"
If you have put on guilt, then you have to take it off!
Knowing that God's love is unconditional -based on whom God is, Bless God by praising God for all the good in your life!
Yes, LOOK a little deeper! There is good to see through all that clutter!
God's love is not based on what you do or don't do! Well sure, God teaches us how to repent and change our character -a must for our own benefit! Thus our behavior will always be improving, but God's love just IS ... and God enables us in our knowledge, understanding and ability to change in the freedoms of God's good grace, which is found in the powerful name of Jesus the Christ! God just loves you ... just as you are!
I can come back and edit this later with fresh eyes -and the answer will still be the same! God loves you! It is really that simple!
Why? Because you are Valuable to God and you have purpose!
Be the reflection!
It is not that we love God, It is that God 1st loved us! Whatever it is that you need, God CAN!
Hope in Today Ministries is all about God's LOVE! Built on LOVE, we will be working on defining LOVE! As, God IS LOVE!
God is also JUST! ... Wow, there's a real statement in Today! But ever so true!!! And God is still Good! And God still loves you!
We will be working on defining GOOD -GOD IS GOOD!
Bad things are NOT GOOD, but what is this good The Bible talks about in Romans 28? There is one thing I know: God is God! And God loves us all! God will allow bad things at this time in history to happen, but only for a reason! A very important reason! Watch and tell as I do!
I will testify to God's Holy Truth in Romans 8:28, but I also see the purpose in the following verse!!! Open your Bible to Romans 8:28 and continue on to read the next ...
New International Version (NIV)
29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
There is a guaranteed HOPE for you in Jesus Christ -Open the Bible and begin talking WITH God! God's Word is God's Testimony about HIS Son!
Okay, one more very valuable verse not to slippy side across, but we will address deeper:
Deuteronomy 8:3 says it like this!
"He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD."
I believe you will fall in love with Jesus when you find out who He IS!
The rest ... well that is God; yes indeed; LOVE works it all out!
It takes Faith to open the Word!
It takes Faith to Believe!
... and God has given you HIS faith to use!
How? By hearing the Word of God; and Applying Every Word that comes from Mouth of God!
"Build yourself up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit (Jude 1:20)."
And learn how to discern the Voice of God!
