The Lord Settled the Matter, But Have You?

Isaiah 1 18

Have you settled the matter of your sin? When we say yes to Jesus Christ as our Savior we have settled the matter. Christ paid for our sin debt in full, dying on the cross for every one of our sins, but the question is do we believe that the matter is settled? Or do we continue to live in bondage, shackled to guilt, and shame never fully resting in the blessed assurance of our redemption through Christ? The enemy stalks us with our sin. When we choose to continuously live in the shadows of our sin it distracts us from God’s work. Sin’s hold on you isn’t by mistake, it is a deliberate part of Satan’s plan to keep you distracted, and doubting your faith, and identity in Christ.

Our mind and spirit are in a battle with the enemy and every day we have to ask ourselves,”Who am I in Christ?” “Am I a new creature?” “Do I believe I am forgiven?” It’s one thing to say I am a child of Christ, it is another thing to live as a child of Christ. Jesus loved us enough and deemed us worthy to save us from death, but we must be willing to accept his grace and his forgiveness. Why is it that so many of us spend years living in shame, beating ourselves up and stuck in the past because we refuse to forgive ourselves for our sins?

Yes, we should repent, confess, turn away from sin, and be remorseful, but repeatedly punishing ourselves is useless. When we refuse to forgive ourselves we are saying that Christ’s forgiveness isn’t enough, that his death on the cross doesn’t cut it. There is absolutely nothing in this world you can ever do that Christ’s grace and forgiveness can’t cover.

You can’t live as a new creation if you’re living with an old mindset. You are divinely designed! God’s plans for you are bigger than your sin. Yes, your sin was like scarlet, red as crimson, but the Lord settled the matter, so let it be settled in your heart, mind, and spirit.

Let’s Meet!

Do Your Choices Produce a Harvest or a Famine? Girl’s Workshop PDF Download!

It’s been a long time! I’m so sorry! Life has been so busy. New job, kid’s stuff, house stuff, life stuff…oy! This past weekend I had the privilege to host a Girls Workshop at our Ladies’ Inspirational Day! What a whirlwind and rollercoaster of emotion! But God’s grace is sufficient! The whole day was a blessing!

Well, except when I had a mini breakdown because I started having that stinking about how I wasn’t prepared, and how could I encourage young girls when I’m a hot mess right now! But, thanks to my sweet sisters who God just poured his grace through to shower on me with their love, I was blessed and was able to give the message God had placed on my heart! Even messes our blessings, sometimes our biggest blessings because we see God’s hand at work!

I wanted to share the study guide I gave the girls, “Do Your Choices Produce a Harvest or a Famine?” with you all!  I’m thinking about turning into a Bible Study or a more developed e-book. I would love to hear your thoughts!
