These past few days have been challenging for me as I have been walking in the flesh. Yes my fleshly feelings came out and at this moment I am not happy with my words and actions. Torn between my feelings and what I know is true about my Jesus, who is good all the time, humbles me and brings me to my knees.
You see he knew all about my failures, my stumbling the day he saved me. As I run to him this morning I really am beginning to understand the goodness of God. My feelings do not change God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! So he is good all the time no matter what state of mind I am in. Romans 8:28 says - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
He is forever working for my good therefore I can trust him and rest in the fact whenever I fail he is waiting for me to come to him with open arms. Arms of love, mercy, forgiveness, goodness and much more. No other place I would rather be!
If your like me you feel terrible when you sin, but let me encourage you to not give up on yourself! Gods love is really more than us humans can comprehend. He will never give up on us as long as we do not give up on ourselves.
