God isn't fair!

 

He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us
according to our iniquities. Psalms 103:10 (NKJV)

 

If there was ever a sentence or scripture in the Bible that you should highlight, circle, and underline, it's this one! If there's one truth to walk away from God's Word with, it's that He hasn't dealt with us according to our sins.

 

Let's refresh our minds of this fact: When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, he  brought on horrific consequences to each of his descendents. By disobediently
partaking of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, he set himself and the race that would flow from him at irreconcilable odds with Almighty God.

 

Sin entered into the human condition, and from that point on, mankind would no longer fall into the "innocent" category of heaven's ledger but instead into
the "guilty" category. In fact, the Bible describes us as "enemies of God" and "children of wrath" (Romans 5:10, Ephesians 2:3). Whether we saw ourselves that way or not, that's how God viewed
us in our sinful condition—a rebellious race deserving of eternal punishment.

 

This backdrop is what makes Psalm 103:10 so indescribably amazing. As guilty as we were and as deserving as we were to receive judgment, God determined not to give us what we earned. He determined not to punish us according to what our sins deserved, which was a hopeless fate beyond human description.

 

No, instead He did something we did not and could not deserve. He sent His perfect son to absorb the shockwaves of our sin and completely cover them in His
righteousness. None of this was "fair" in the strict sense, and we can be glad that God wasn't fair to us, but went way beyond fairness by being way more gracious than we deserved.

 

Thank you, Lord, for being "unfair" towards us when it comes to the unfathomable grace You've poured upon us.

 

Think about it…

God’s Promise

 

He promised He would never leave us, never, no, never alone.

He taught us to love one another and harvest the kindness we’ve shown.

He showed us the strength of the Spirit. And all that our faith can achieve.

He promised the comfort of healing, if only we trust and believe.

He told us of life everlasting, for us and for those we have known.

He promised He would never leave us, never, no never alone

 

Only by being connected with Christ through faith can anyone have eternal life and only through a continuing connection with Him can anyone have power for living

 

 

Our Love for Jesus Christ should translate into love for others

Hammers To Use In Warfare

 

Your Word Says

 

Isaiah 45 v 2;  I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron

 

Isaiah 49 v 25;  I will contend with those who contend with you and your children I will save.

 

Isaiah 54 v17; no weapon formed against you will prosper and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.

 

Matthew 12 v 20; A bruised reed he will not break and a smouldering wick He will not snuff out.

 

Nahum 1 v 13;  Now I will break their yoke from your neck and tear your shackles away

 

Praying Using the Word of God

 

Isaiah 55 v11; so is my word that goes out from my mouth.  It will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

 

Jeremiah 5 v 9; I will make my words in your mouth a fire

 

Jeremiah 23 v 29; Is not my word like fire and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

 

The word of the Lord has POWER, it is LIFE, therefore every need can be answered if we wait on the Lord for HIS WORD.  It takes time, but the result is worth it
