It's Over

As humans, we are subject to many struggles while here on earth. But God guarantees us two things with regards to our struggles: We will get through them, and He will walk with us, sometimes carrying us, until we do (Psalm 34:17). You know the expression "we have to choose our battles?" Well there is one battle that many of us choose to fight, though there is absolutely no reason why we should.

Jesus died for our sins. If we have accepted Him as our Savior, then God has completely forgiven us for all our sins, even the ones we have not even committed yet. Sometimes we struggle with the worry if we have made God mad at us because of choices we may have made. But God is not mad at us, He loves us! The Old Testament explains of how God's wrath was poured out on those who chose to disobey Him. But today, we live by His New Testament. We are under His grace today, not the old Law. Once we accept Christ, we become a "new creature." God promises that the old us is passed away! Will we still sin? Yes, we can't avoid it. But we should never worry that we have made God mad at us and caused Him to turn His back. He will never leave us nor forsake us...not for our sins, our decisions, or for anything else we may do.

Father, forgive me of all my sins. Please help me to not get bogged down worrying if you still accept me. I know You will always accept me. In Jesus name, Amen.
