The God of Grace

You know the only perfect one in the world ever was Jesus.  He’s the one that lived a perfect life.  JESUS DID LIVE A PERFECT LIFE.  So when Jesus went to the cross, he paid the debt for all of us that are imperfect.  Because we all make mistakes, there is not one of us that are perfect.  But he loved us, he forgave us, and he picks us up when we need it.  That’s grace.

God of Grace

It’s not just grace or forgiveness from your past but it’s grace to hope for your future.  It’s grace that empowers you to be the person that he’s calling you to be. So put your hope in Jesus the God of Grace.

God Never Tires of Picking Us Up

When my first born daughter we were so excited when she took her first step! I don’t remember every saying, “Come on Rachel… you can do better than that… I’m walking… why are you falling down… Haven’t you mastered this yet? Your dad can walk… grandma can walk… come on! What’s wrong with you?”

God never tires of picking us up

NO! a parent doesn’t do that.  We’re not looking at all the time that our children fall.  We are looking at the times that they are taking steps.  Every step that they take we get excited, we celebrate. We bring out the cameras.

God Never Tires of Picking Us Up!

Your heavenly father is the same way.  He’s not up in heaven thinking about every time that you fall, being critical of that.  He’s rejoicing in every step of faith that you take .

I don’t remember the falls. Rachel turns 26 on May 24. She knows how to walk now (and falls a lot less).

But when she was little, there were times she took a fall and she had a bloody knee that needed bandaging… She also needed to be cuddled and held and her boo boo kissed.  Then, a bright smile would light up her face and off she would go again.

God Never Tire of Picking Us Up

So it is with our heavenly father

who rejoices in every step you have ever taken

and heals every fall.

So it is with our heavenly father

who loves to see us run

and never tires of picking us up.

Joy of Walking – Every Step we Take

I remember my first Easter with my oldest daughter was 9 months old and learning to walk.  The joy of her eyes as we planned this Easter egg hunt.  And wouldn’t you know it snowed. And so there she was bundled up along with all the other kids, walking, holding my hand and reaching down for those bright colored eggs.

every step we take

I can’t describe to you the joy that I felt watching  daughter step by step, still pretty unsteady walk… but learning to walk.  You know where were excited about every single step that Rachel took. Like God he’s excited about every single step we take.

“The LORD directs the steps of the godly.

He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalm 37:23

Maker of Heaven and Earth

HE’S THE MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH! We overcome fear when we understand that God is in control. We can’t manipulate our way into our destiny. We need to trust God completely,

Maker of

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)

Notice it does not say …” the plans that YOU have for YOU.” It may be hard for you to realize, His purpose is to prosper you and to give you a future and a hope.

So Don’t Let Fear Steal from You

I pray that you will rest in the fact that the God of the Universe still reigns on high. Whatever difficult thing you are experiencing, He is still bigger. His purpose for your life will prevail as you learn to trust Him more!

Focus on God

One of our biggest human freedoms is the ability to choose what I am going to pay attention to and what I am not.

FOCUS on God

I can focus on my problems…

I can focus on my relationship that may go sideways…

I can focus on my financial issue…

I can focus on that person from work who is trying to take me down…

I can focus on the problems my kids are going through…

I can focus on all the things that make me afraid…

OR

I can choose to focus on God

I can focus on how He has been faithful to me in the past

 

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

    where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—

    he who watches over you will not slumber;”

Psalm 121 (NIV)

Overcoming Fear with Faith (Linkup)

Overcoming Fear with Faith

We combat fear by putting it in the right perspective. You and I don’t actually have a fear-problem… we have is a faith-problem. Our goal should not be to have a “fear-free life.” In fact if that is your goal you will almost always be disappointed. You will never have a fear free life. God is not the means of “fear avoidance”.

overcoming fear with faith

We overcome fear with faith. We stop allowing fear to steal from us. The focus should not be on how to fear less, but how to trust God more. The Holy Spirit often brings peace to us as we read and meditate on Scripture.

‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Isaiah 41:10

Fear is a Thief

Fear is a thief.  Fear steals our freedom. It runs away with our hope. It make us obsess about ourselves and all my limitations. Fear keeps us from connecting in community. It keeps us from taking the risks we need to take to obey God. Fear keeps us from totally trusting God. It keeps me from living for the fullness and the fulfillment of his destiny in our lives.

Fear is a thief.

Jesus knew that fear would be deadly and so he encouraged us  again and again to have courage, to not be afraid, to take heart.  So remember Jesus word’s and don’t let fear steal your faith.

While Jesus was on earth, he gave us 125 imperatives or commands in Scripture. Of those 125 — 21 of them deal with the topic of fear. Jesus said things like:

Have courage

Don’t be afraid

Take heart

Jesus continued to encourage his disciples to not be afraid and to follow him completely.

Do Not Be Afraid
