In 2 Timothy it talks about how if we were to died with Christ, we will also live with him, if we endured, we will also reign with him, if we disown him, he will also disown us, if we were faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself. The thing is we have a God that loves us without any limits and will be with us till the end. We are just too caught up in our own little lives that can end any second, instead of seeing how great the Love of Christ is . Below are a few things among many others that he promises us, as his Children to Never worry about.
1. Being Forsaken
We are created in the Lord’s image. As a image that is created by the Lord, we are made to worship, glorify, praise and sing songs of love, joy, peace and delight ourselves in the Lord. But instead we have totally changed that, we use this image to worship things of this world, to be mean to others, to think we are better. WE even use our mouths to speak mean ugly things to others, then at the same time we praise the Lord who is everything good. There is a problem with that, because as far as i know clear water and dirty water can’t flow from the same spring. In the middle of all this, no matter how bad, mean, nasty or disgusting we are the lord says ” Never will i leave you, never will i forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 You have a love like this that is limitless. You say you love the Lord, then strive to change for him, Have a willing heart and Change. BE TRANSFORMED.
2. Feeling useless
You my Dear friend, You are made in the Lord’s image. A image that comes with many amazing talents, and gifts. So whenever you feel useless, unworthy or totally Crappy. Remember you serve a God that moves mountains, Who created the galaxies and out of all those things the most beautiful, talented, and amazing thing he ever created was you. Just like how there is no sin bigger than the other, the same thing with gifts and talents. The is no big gifts or small gifts, they are all equal and they all need each other to function well. If you were created to serve, go out and serve, if you were created to be amazing funny and make people smile then go out and do that. If you were created to be an observe and listen and be a peacemaker then go out and do that. The world needs you and anyone who says otherwise. Well they didn’t create you and clear they don’t know you. And show them the Love of Jesus. 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
3. The Future
Whenever anyone reads Jeremiah 29:11 which says ” For i know the plans i have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you , plans to give you hope and future.” they stop right there and keep living their lives. We forget to read verse 12 and 13 which talks about how we will call upon his name and pray to him and he will listen to us. And that if we seek him with our whole heart we will find him then he will fulfill our desires that it talks about in verse 11. Don’t just read what you want to hear, but also read what you NEED to know. Yes the Lord has us in his hands, yes the Lord knows our future, yes we will prosper and have a good future. But only if we seek him with our whole heart and find him, putting our own wills aside and pursuing his WILL. In John 14:1-3 Jesus tells his disciples that he is going to prepare a place for them. That they need not to be troubled but Trust in the Lord. We won’t get to the father’s house by just sitting and not reading the Word and spreading what we are learning. So prepare yourselves, tell people about the Wonderful Father in Heaven. Don’t let Jesus be apart of your life, But instead let Jesus be YOUR life. Don’t worry about the future, because the Lord has it all planned out, so dont make any plans. Instead pursue HIS WILL.
4. Bothering God with Prayer
For me Prayer is a another word for Talking, chatting with the Lord, being real and just pouring everything out to him. So when you think you are bothering him you are being absolutely silly. In 1 peter 5:7 says ” Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” But in verse 6 its says ” HUMBLE yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.” it says to HUMBLE yourself, the opposite of Humble is being conceited, arrogant, proud and many other words. So whenever you think that you are ugly, when you are drop dead beautiful you are being prideful without knowing it. When you think you are bothering your friends about your problems and such well that is arrogance right there because those friends were put in your life for a reason. Whenever people want to serve you and provide, but you reject them, then you are conceited, instead of Humbling yourself and saying thank you. So humble yourself and bring your problems to the Lord, except that you are beautiful, talk to your friends and open up and be Humble not proud. Being humble is accepting help, and guidance. Not rejecting help and being taken care of.
5. Feeling unforgiven
Lets go back, back to the dark ages haha kidding. Lets go back to Jacob, he was forgiven and the Lord was with him. Joseph he was thrown into a hole by his brothers and he ended up forgiving them. David killed a man, took his wife, and well yeah he was forgiven, Solomon so many wives and concubines, he was forgiven and the Lord was with him. Peter ,Jesus’ best man friend, he denied him, but he was forgiven. PAUL people he killed many many of the Lord’s followers and apostles but he was forgiven. The point is no matter what you have done don’t be afraid, dont pity yourself so much to the point of no return. In 1 John 1:9 it says ” If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” See Christ Jesus was 100 percent man once upon time, he understand the struggles, the temptations, the troubles and he is just and faithful and will forgive you. Along the way you will learn to Listen to the Holy spirit So you won’t sin as much or mess up as often.
Stressing, Being afraid, and over worrying.
John 14:27 says “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” You are given PEACE, its yours to use, to keep and to hold on too. But we have this thing in our minds that don’t want us to be calm and embrace the peace when things don’t go right. instead we panic, we stress, we become fearful and next thing you know. We are not eating well, were depressed and just out of your mind. But the Lord say come to me, my yoke is easy. Come to me and take this peace upon yourself, this peace is like no other, the world will never fulfill you only i can.
To Our Wonderful, faithful, and amazing Father in heaven, Thank you for shaping me, and your constant reminder of who i am, and who i am to be. All glory to you!!!
To everyone, i hope this blessed you as it blessed me.
