Something I’ve Learned About Last Year
What I learned last year: God is faithful.
The Bible have many promises to those who will believe Jesus Christ. The Bible also reveals that part of God’s character is faithfulness.
The past year, I was trying to go back to the Lord after a season of shaking faith. I found myself TRYING. Trying to gain His approval, His love and His favor. I also found myself failing to do things perfectly.
Something happened that I was brought to a point where religiously listening to sermons and trying to do things in my own strength will not save me from my situation.
At that time, I felt trapped but in that moment of desperation, I learned to have…faith. It’s free, I didn’t have to strictly follow a set of ritual hoping to find His approval.
That’s all it was. All He wanted from me was my heart, to love again, including and most especially, Him. I learned that I didn’t have to work for His acceptance. When He said that He will never forsake me, He means never. It doesn’t depend on what I feel. When He said that it is finished, it’s finished. Nothing I do could ever make Him love me less.
