In His Praise — March 1, 2020

The good news today is simple. It is that God loves us! He loves you  and me so much that  He is willing to forgive our sins, when we ask Him with a repentant heart. Then, after He has wiped away our wrongdoings, He forgets about them! We can trust that this is true because He says so in Isaiah 43:25, Jeremiah 31:34 and again in Hebrew 8:12 and 10:16-17.

We sometimes want to hang on to our past and relive the moments when we have gone astray. But when we do that we give the devil an opening to torment us. Satan can and will use our past mistakes and failures to make us doubt our salvation, to move us away from a loving Father, to take away our peace and joy and to generally make our lives a mess. Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44)  and wants only to destroy (John 10:10). He does not love us or even care about us.

Don’t fall into his traps! Claim the good news of Jesus’ salvation! Let Jesus be the Lord of your life. Trust that your sins are forgiven and your past life is gone.  2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new is come.”

Kick Satan aside and start really living. Trust your Heavenly Father to guide you and give you a peaceful, joyous and victorious life in Him.
