FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5
Scripture: Jude 24
How many times does it take to study this truth in the New Testament before we begin to possess its reality? Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy and he will do it by any means possible. Do we ever wonder if we’re good enough for God? Have we ever thought our sin might be too big for Him to forgive? Do we continue in shame over something we’ve already confessed to Jesus? If so, we must discern that is satan who is whispering in our ears! His goal is to defeat us and paralyze us! God has fruitfulness and a full destiny. For us, it is no surprise that the enemy persists with accusations which keep us in guilt and prevent us from accepting blamelessness. We must earnestly contend for our Sonship Gifts and the freedom they offer “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,…” “Faultless” in this Scripture is also the Greek word am-o-mas. So every day we have is a gift that is bought and paid for by the Blood. We have this gift that declares we are blameless before God and man! If God declares us blameless, then who are we to argue or stay paralyzed by shamefulness and despair? We should rather persist daily to receive our gifts with thanksgiving!
