There’s no one I get more frustrated with than myself. So often I hear people say they wouldn’t change anything about their lives. Their excuse is their experiences have made them who they are. I’d take away every time I’ve failed God if it were up to me. I’d be okay if that made me a different person than I am now.
The unbelievable thing about God is He’s actually capable of doing this. He’s able to forgive me in such a way that He doesn’t remember any of the sins I’ve committed. He’s able to see me as a different person. He’s able to see me through the blood of Jesus. Pure. Holy. Righteous. That’s amazing.
That’s why I love Him. It’s why I hate my weaknesses. He’s so good to me and I’m so undeserving. I’ll continue to battle with my flesh. I’ll continue to long for the day that He gives me a new body. I hear people talk about wanting a good looking body in Heaven. I’ve never had much of a body on earth. I don’t care what my body looks like in Heaven. I’ll never be tempted to sin against my Lord again. That’s Heaven to me.
Until I get there I’ll fight. I’ll rest in His mercy when I fail. I rest in His strength when I’m weak.
Where are you in your walk with the Lord? Have you forgotten the price He paid for your sins? Do you think He can no longer forgive you? Have you given up on living for Him? Jesus came to earth and went to the cross because it was the only way. Don’t trust yourself. Don’t doubt Him.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.(1 Corinthians 15:53)
