“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5 When we get into trouble, most of the time it’s our own doing. The next time you face a situation, don’t go ahead on your own, ask God and seek Godly counsel! He will give you wisdom to overcome every trial!
Your new identity “in Christ” has set you free from a works mentality! In fact, in Christ you no longer have a Carnal nature, “fleshly” but a new nature! Religion wants to add works to everything. It tries to make you perfect in order to receive. The focus becomes on you, instead of Jesus! Grace empowers you and places the focus on Jesus! He is perfect and has qualified us to receive everything He has provided by grace! The good news, is you’re no longer in the flesh or works mentality, but are in the Spirit! “However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.” Rom. 8:9
Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season! Be blessed!
Rejoice, God’s plans for you are only good!
The greatest enemy you face is not Satan or even sin, but unbelief! Sin has been dealt with on the cross and the only power that Satan has is what you give him.
