Greater Grace

If you are struggling in any area of your life today—bring it to God.

 If you are battling hate, jealousy, condemnation, guilt or shame—bring it to Him and lay it out before Him.

Confess how you really feel; what you are truly struggling with…

 Is it pride, anger or fear? Don’t try to hide it or justify it—just spill it! God sees it all anyway, so why waste time trying to explain it or reason it away?

To me, this is one of the most wonderful things about being a child of God. We can come into His presence, as a child coming to a parent, and speak about what’s troubling us. Or confess the ugly thing we have noticed about ourselves.

It’s ok. God won’t condemn us or reject us. He has already made provision for us through the blood of Christ.

 But He gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but favors the humble.” James 4:6 New Living Translation

 Be encouraged today– but not simply encouraged– be changed and empowered to confront whatever is trying to hold you captive and keep you down:

 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith.” 1 John 5:4
