Jesus dealt will ALL our iniquities, sickness and diseases, lack and poverty, and even death has lost it’s sting by the resurrection power that raised Him from the dead. Every little thing was covered for our wholeness’ sake. He did it ALL because of His AMAZING LOVE for us.
One little detail that seemed to be magnified before my eyes today is IGNORANCE. We know that being unaware of His thoughts and ways costs. As we always say, “Ignorance to the law is expensive” and yes, it is. Do you know that Jesus also dealt with this when He said, “Father, forgive them for THEY DO NOW KNOW WHAT THEY DO?” (Luke 23:14)
I’m not saying that because of this we’ll stay ignorant, BUT instead it should ignite in our hearts a THANKSGIVING and PRAISE for His GRACE that He did it. His demonstration of forgiveness because of His great love for us changes our hearts that will serve as an invitation to know MORE of Who God says He is and who we are IN HIM. We do our part in pressing in to know His ways and His thoughts that results to making our way prosperous, dealing wisely and having good success.
There may be challenges in our lives that caused us to get hurt and wounded due to lack of knowledge, but THANK GOD that He ALWAYS turn it around for our good. Praise God that He is forever committed to our own good than us to ourselves.
Pray for wisdom! For wisdom, seeing from God’s perspective is really all that matters. In this position is where REST is inevitable.
“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.” James 1:5 NIV
