Why, Why, Why…

Why is it so hard to receive, and believe, God’s unconditional love toward us?
Why do all these negative, destructive thoughts invade our thinking? Why, why, why?
The Bible says:

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I {Jesus} came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)…”
John 10:10
“{Satan} He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him….” John 8:43-45

This ‘thief’ knows our most vulnerable areas and he is very subtle. And, since our mind is influenced by its senses (seeing, hearing, tasting, touching), that is the means by which he tries to diminish us, and tries to break down our relationship with our loving God. But the Bible says we are overcomers and victorious, In Christ.

“… despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.   And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.  … indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

Ask God to show you the subtle ways the enemy is trying to ‘kill, steal and destroy’ you. It’s personal!  The lies could have come from family, ‘friends’ or co-workers/bosses, those untruths such as you’re a mistake, unimportant, a failure, shameful, ugly, defeated; or it comes from the brokenness and pain you have experienced. Yes, these experiences and words were very real, but so is Jesus, who walked this earth and died on the cross to take your pain and sorrow ~ for YOU!

Allow yourself to be influenced by God’s truths, through the Word of God. God so loves you.  When Jesus is Lord in your life, you are renewed and made whole again. Remember HE knew you before you were intricately created in your mother’s womb; HIS loving thoughts of you outnumber the grains of sand; you are beautified, dignified, and crowned with loving kindness and tender mercy! Allow God and HIS loving kindness to permeate your brokenness. Replace hurtful words, with HIS truths and watch, one by one, you’ll begin to see yourself as HE does! YOU ARE His Masterpiece! … Ponder on those truths!
