Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise

Believe!

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20, ESV)

It doesn’t matter what you were taught in your basic math classes but on the road through life 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 1, or to put it another way: God + Jesus + the Holy Spirit + You = ONE. And that ONE is not YOU because, “…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17, ESV) And the news even gets better! Your life is no longer subject to the weakest link (you) but the “Powers that ARE” who created and sustains the universe!

Do you believe that?

If you did not answer YES here is something to think about.

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” (Psalm 103:11–12, ESV)

Do you believe that?

If you did not answer YES here is something else to think about.

Author Frank Viola writes, “Without seeing yourself as He sees you, there will always be anxiety between you and the Lord. (The anxiety comes from our side, not His.) Because of what the Lord has done to make us as pure as He is, we have no right to such anxiety. We have no right to an inferiority complex. We have no right to perpetual guilt. We have no right to see ourselves as unworthy. We have no right to allow ourselves to be hounded by an accusing conscience.” (From Eternity to Here: Rediscovering the Ageless Purpose of God. David C. Cook. Kindle Edition.)

Do you believe that?

If you did not answer YES here is another scripture to add to your collection.

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38–39, ESV)

I could go on and on but it’s not quotes that I put here that will wipe away your unbelief it is the Holy Spirit that is very much alive in your heart that will take care of any unbelief you have when given the chance.

BE strong in the LORD!

Grace and PEACE, Amen!
