THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE POWER TO OVERCOME ANYTHING
God is NOT keeping a record of all your faults. Sometimes we think He’s in heaven, watching to CATCH us. “I SAW that failure. Let me write that down. I HEARD that comment. Gabriel, put a STAR by that one—that was REALLHY bad. I’ll have to withhold My GOODNESS.” No, God is NOT a faultfinder. He’s not an accuser. He doesn’t go around saying, “You KNEW better and STILL failed, so you’re on your OWN.” God is not waiting for you to perform PERFECTLY and then He’s going to show you His GOODNESS. He is full of MERCY. He’ll show you FAVOR that you don’t DESERVE.
When you have the right IMAGE of God, you know that He’s FOR you, that He’s not basing His goodness toward you on your PERFORMANCE but on His grace ALONE. Then all the guilt and the condemnation have to GO. God will give you the POWER to overcome ANYTHING that’s holding you BACK.
James 1:5, NIV
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
