Dearly beloved, welcome to this week’s Pastors corner taken from the book of Hebrews 13:9a ‘Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace..’
Beloved, God does not want your heart full of worries and fears, tossed and turned by every challenge that comes your way. He wants your heart at rest and established by His grace toward you. When you think that your breakthrough depends on your ability to obey God, then it is easy for your heart to be restless-to be full of worries and anxieties. Why? Because we can never obey God perfectly. But when we depend on God’s grace, that is, His undeserved, unmerited favor, the opposite happens — our heart becomes established. When we know that the only thing that qualifies us to receive God’s blessings is faith in the finished work of Christ, then our heart becomes established. Then, we will walk without the fear of our troubles swallowing us up. We can walk with full assurance that His blessings will be manifested in our lives.
God wants your heart to be established, knowing that His righteousness, healing, protection and provision are yours — all paid for by Jesus. God Himself has said, “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” (Hebrews 8:12) God’s blessings are sure in your life because they are not dependent on your ability to keep His laws, but Jesus’ perfect obedience.
Therefore it is our prayer that as you go through this life- don’t worry about whether you are good enough. You can stand firm on the promises made in His Word and enjoy His blessings because Jesus has paid the price. Your part is only to believe and receive! Until next week, Calvary blessings upon you.
