God Revealed in Scripture

God reveals Himself throughout Scripture, as a loving and faithful God who longs to protect us from the traps of the enemy, sin and depravity. The world often sees this as harsh and intolerant. But truth is, He loves us far too much to remain complacently silent while we move ever closer to the cliff of self-destruction.

Unrealistic Expectations of God

God has proven Himself faithful and true.  The more I experience relationship with Him and the more I reflect on His track record in my life, the more I desire to share His goodness with others.  I vividly remember a season long ago, when I felt completely hopeless.  Fear and depression overwhelmed me and sin reigned in my life.  No matter how hard I tried to overcome the darkness by my own efforts, I failed miserably.  I firmly believed I would "never smile again."  Well, praise God, I got my smile back, and it just gets bigger and bigger.  I have experienced Psalms 103:11-12 in full:

"For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is His love for those who fear Him;
as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

I wasted many years trying hard to overcome sin.  I read the Bible many times through and hundreds of spiritual self-help books, looking for the magical how-to check list to bring myself back into line.  I memorized Scripture and posted it throughout my home.  I made promises to God, but failed over and over, wallowing in shame and guilt.

The answer to my dilemma was there in Scripture all along.  I was trying so hard to gain victory in my own power; I missed the simple but crucial truth:  Christ in me, the hope of glory!  Colossians 1:27.  When I began to realize that my identity is not based on how hard I try, aka “works righteousness,” but instead, on the finished work of Jesus, a peace began to emerge from within.  This peace grows in my heart every day, as I look at myself through the eyes of God.  I am learning to listen to His description of me, rather than to the lies of the world and my passion is to share Gods’ goodness; His yes!  "For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ."  2 Corinthians 1:20

Glory to God!!!

God is faithful and true!

Glory! Glory! Glory! He is worthy to be praised!

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12)
