We're still in preventative care!
We run to Jesus, not away from Him, knowing that He is there, willing and wanting to help us.
Though we sin (whether we are aware of it or not), there is grace that covers us. We are not condemned, but justified through the blood of Christ. Now we can come boldly before the throne of GRACE and ask for help in the time of need. We cannot plead innocent because truly we have all sinned. We can only plead the blood of Jesus that has covered the cost of our guilt.
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Now... #2 of HOW?
Guide my steps by your word, so I will not be overcome by evil.
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
But He answered and said, “It is written,‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
What does this mean?
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
LIVING BY THE WORD
Moreover He said to me, “Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat that scroll. 3 And He said to me, “Son of man, feed your belly, and fill your stomach with this scroll that I give you.” So I ate, and it was in my mouth like honey in sweetness.
How do I do this?
Even when I make the wrong decision He has always been faithful to correct me and get my feet back on the right path towards Him.
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,
Of course I can also pray about it if we haven't prayed together on it already, but my point is that the Lord can, will continue to, and does lead me through the counsel and decisions of my husband along with the ways He has always led me before, as He does with all His married daughters.END OF SIDE NOTEHe cares...so you can feel safe to cast your cares on Him and ask Him for help. He wants to see you succeed, He will not just let you perish. He chases after us with a burning love and He wants to be actively involved in all the little details of our lives.Will you involve Him?Walking in the Spirit requires active help from the Spirit of God, all we need to do is ask, seek, knock. He is waiting.
Behold,I stand at the door and knock.If anyone hears My voice and opens the door,I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.Revelation 3:20
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.Matthew 7:7-12
