There is no way that God will reject a Good Person.
Job 8:14-21 (MSG)
They hang their life from one thin thread, they hitch their fate to a spider web. One jiggle and the thread breaks, one jab and the web collapses. Or they’re like weeds springing up in the sunshine, invading the garden, Spreading everywhere, overtaking the flowers, getting a foothold even in the rocks. But when the gardener rips them out by the roots, the garden doesn’t miss them one bit. The sooner the godless are gone, the better; then good plants can grow in their place. There’s no way that God will reject a good person, and there is no way he’ll help a bad one. God will let you laugh again; you’ll raise the roof with shouts of joy.
I bless you with honesty, integrity and trustworthiness in everything, may God be your top priority.
Yesterday was our second visit to the Faith Based Unit at Gatesville Correctional Facility. We went thinking we’d be bringing a lesson and encouragement to the 33 ladies incarcerated there. Boy were we wrong! They are the ones who blessed us and knocked our socks off with their joy, freedom in Spirit, praise and testimonies of God’s goodness and mercy. We go every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 8:30 but they don’t want us to leave and neither do we. We have to tear ourselves away before the guards come and take us out. The peace, joy and unity these women share is inspiring and convicting. They will be discipled for 18 months then are released back into the main prison population in pairs as “missionaries”. Please pray for these women as they grow in the knowledge of God and for our team as we minister acceptance, grace and restoration to them.
Dear Prayer Partner, let us pray together.
Grace to be Me
For many years I simply could not accept myself. I felt inferior and unacceptable to God. One day I sat aside my pride, called upon the name of the Lord, and He answered me. I no longer saw Him as a demanding God but a loving Father who accepted me with all my imperfections, and it was all by His grace. God’s grace cannot be earned; it can only be received; it is a free commodity in God’s economy. The dictionary defines grace as unmerited love and favor of God; divine influence acting in the person to make to make the person pure and morally strong. As you grow in grace God brings you to completeness of personality. He is working mightily in you!
Father, I thank You for salvation. By grace I have been saved through faith…it is the gift of God. Sin shall no longer be my master, because I am under grace. Your grace is sufficient for me—for every situation that I face today—for Your strength is made perfect in weakness . From the fullness of Your grace we have all received one blessing after another in the name of Jesus. Amen.
