God never runs out of second chances for us. We cannot earn a second chance. We can only receive them by God’s grace and mercy and returning to God.
If we have made mistakes, he is there to help us pick up the pieces and start over. If obstacles overwhelmed us, he is there to help us overcome. If we are in the midst of a trial. his grace is there for us.
We do not need to dwell on our failures. We can come to Jesus and ask for help and then focus on the here and now not the past.
Through the years I have witnessed God’s faithfulness. So many times I have witnessed Jesus coming through for me and others. Lives changed, hope restored, obstacles overcome, are all things it has been my blessing to see and be a part of.
It is a blessing and an honor to share with others what I’ve witnessed Jesus doing in my life and the lives of others. One day it will be a great blessing to witness the return of Jesus. What a glorious day that will be. Until then, my desire is to share about the hope in Jesus with others.
I love this simple song Let Them See You. The message is simple and yet most profound. Let them see Jesus in me. Let them see Jesus in how I treat them. Let them see Jesus in how I speak. Let them see Jesus in my actions.
Jesus chooses to work through us to reach people, so my desire is for others to see Jesus through me so what I share is supported by what they see in me.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, Ephesians 2:4-5
God makes anyone who trusts Jesus as their Savior alive. But how is it that we are considered dead when we are living physically?
Death is separation. We tend focus only on physical death. God saw an even greater peril for us which is being separated from God because of sin. When Jesus died for our sins, it opened the way for us to be brought into relationship with God.
But wait there is more. Anyone who trusts in Jesus already has a seat, a place, reserved in heaven so we can enjoy eternal relationship with God.
God also goes to work in our lives to free us up in life. His work is thorough.
I love the song Glorious Day because it is a celebration of God giving us the victory in Jesus.
We sang this in worship yesterday. I love this song so much. Jesus is the answer to so many woes in this life. I have witnessed Jesus change lives, bring hope where there was no hope, free lives from addiction and more.
I have experienced for myself what Jesus can do. He has freed me from the effects of trauma. He has lifted me out of the pit in life and given my life a whole new meaning and purpose reaching out to the nations in my city.
My hope and prayer for my upcoming books is that Jesus works through them to draw people to himself and free them.
Ephesians 3:20-21- “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Jesus defeated death. He was dead and buried. But he defeated death through his resurrection. Jesus can do far more than we can ask or imagine. He has all power and reigns as Lord of all.
Jesus is alive and wants to partner with us as we journey in this life. He is Immanuel-God With Us. He is the ultimate person to have by our side.
Whatever it is that we are going through, Jesus is greater than any problem we might have. We can look to him.
We have sung this song during worship the past few Sundays and I love how it reminds us of the love and power of Jesus. Jesus loves us so much that he died on the cross for us, but because he has all power, he defeated death for us.
Whatever we experience in this life, we can trust that Jesus is with us and has the power to help.
In a few weeks, we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. This Is Our God is an excellent song for Easter Sunday.
Who says “I’m with you there in the dark It won’t always be this hard I’m holding your broken heart”? And who says “I’m not scared of your fears All your doubts, bring ’em here I’m wiping all of your tears”? He does, He does
Jesus is always with us. There is nothing that can separate us from Jesus. He will never leave us. Even in our troubles, he is with us. If we falter, he is faithful to stay with us.
Iveth Luna sings her songs in English and in Spanish, so I am sharing both this morning. Panda Mom will enjoy that. Ella es mi hermanita en Jesus. 🙂
The lyrics express my sentiments so well. If I didn’t know Jesus, I have no idea who I would be. I would be so lost in life. Thankfully I know Jesus and have experienced his love and restoration power in my life.
That love and restoration power are available for anyone who will come to Jesus. It is free for the taking. Jesus paid the price when he died on the cross for our sins.
May this song by Lauren Daigle bless you as you begin your week.
