IMPACTING Families with HOPE

Jesus, Take The Wheel

Psalm 139:14 “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.”
Phil. 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

There are some things that are very important for you to understand. First, the Father says that you belong to His family. Romans 8:15-16 promises, “You have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out ‘Abba! Father!’ The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God.” You are an important, integral part of His family, the Body of Christ. You are wanted, you are loved, and you are needed. Heaven rejoices that you will be with the Father for all of eternity (Luke15:7, & 10). Nothing can snatch you from His hand or separate you from His love (John 10:28-29; Rom. 8:38-39). You absolutely must get hold of the fact that you are completely worthy to God. Jesus sacrificed everything to have a relationship with you, even to give His life for you. Rom. 5:8 confirms this: “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Even when you were unable to do anything to please the father, He loved you unconditionally. He cares for you because of who you are, not what you do.

The Lord is the only One with an unrestricted view of who you are on the inside. According to Psalm 139:14 you are “fearfully and wonderfully made”, absolutely loveable and worthy. Throw aside any thoughts that are contrary and embrace His truth!! This is something important for you to memorize and remind yourself of its promise every day: Phil. 4:13 “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” He promises to help you succeed in whatever task He gives you, and He takes full responsibility of providing all the wisdom and power you require as you obey Him. How does God empower you to do all things that He calls you to do? According to 1 Cor. 3:16 when you took Jesus as your savior, the Holy Spirit came to dwell in you. He is the One that qualifies you to complete the assignments He has planned for your life (Heb. 13:20-21).
Think often about this powerful truth: Phil. 2:13 “It is God who is at work in you, both to will, and to work for His good pleasure.” The omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Lord of creation is the One that makes you competent and enables you to do remarkable things (Mark 10:27). As Jesus said in Matt. 17:20 “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” No matter what challenges or obstacles come up in your life, you can be confident of your success because He is with you. All you have to do is obey God and leave the consequences to Him. He will never steer you wrong.
