Don't Rob Yourself of Your Blessings

Posted by: Apostle Jacob Ballard III on Tue, Jan 17, 2017

Here Are Four Ways We Can Rob Ourselves Of God's Blessing


1. Judge ourselves:

 

"I do not even examine myself (literally: Judge, try, condemn)The one who examines me is the Lordwho will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts… " ( 1 Corinthians 4:3-5)

 

Paul did, however, "examine" his heart, but the element of self-condemnation was absent:

 

"Test (Literally: assay, scrutinize) yourselves to see if you are in the faith." (2 Corinthians 13:5)

 

2. Condemn ourselves:

 

"There isno condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." (Romans 8:1)

 

"God is infinitely greater than our hearts ( in not condemning us). When we realize this, our hearts no longer accuse us(and) we may have the utmost confidence in God's presence." (1 John 3:20-22 – Phillips)

 

3. Not accept His unconditional love:

 

"I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with loving kindness .God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Jeremiah 31:3; Romans 5:8)

 

4. Not accept His invitation to minister to us:

 

"Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to youHe will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you." (Isaiah 30:18, 19).

 

God knows and loves you, warts and all. By judging or condemning yourself, you denigrate the great grace of God. So relax in Him and drink in His unfathomable love.

This is such a blessing to read. Relax in him and drink his unfathomable love. I receive that with all my heart. What a relief to finally be able to INHALE and relax. There is no stress in the kingdom, no worries, only love and more love and perfecting. What else could my Father possibly do for me? It brings me to tears to even imagine it. What is greater that this? GLORY, this is what glory is...just eternal greater and greater, too much to contain or explain. I can only hope that there are a million thank yous in each of my teardrops and that God feels the burning in my heart to be His faithful servant.
