Don’t Sweat It

If you cannot accept the simple fact that you are God’s child by birth then the promises of the Bible will not be terribly effective in your trails. Many Christians shake verses like the one from 1John 4:4; (“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world).” at Satan in the same way a medicine man shakes a rattle to scare away the evil spirits. The energizing of the effectiveness of God’s promises and truth come only by faith. Our faith must come by Christ Jesus (see Hebrews 12:2). We cannot work up faith out of our own strength.

The wonder of the Father’s love sets into motion the beginnings of a knowing, that we do not have to work anything up.The truth of this, (His) unconditional love is what begins to address/undress our former mis/understandings and further frees us in a loving surrender to the Truth of His Way and Life.
