I’ve experienced the beauty of having God deliver you – bring you out to a place of rest – He revealed to me a beautiful inheritance.
If God is for you, then who can really be against you? His Word is final, and you are redeemed – the price on your head has been paid. No weapon formed will succeed against you.
The Accuser, although he stands and accuses you day and night in front of God, the only Judge, you will not be condemned. God won’t allow you to stay in a position where you are condemned.
Are you listening to the accusations of the Accuser, who wants to steal your happiness, peace of mind, confidence, and plant doubt? Or are you listening to your Father, who happens to be that Judge, who defends you, intercedes for you, even when what the Accuser says is right!
Christ stands in the gap – when He walked the earth He did the unthinkable, He touched the untouchable (the diseased and broken-hearted men and women of whom their own family had rejected), He went after the unlovable, grouchy, and sometimes deceitful people, He had compassion and love for them, and showed it shamelessly.
“Lord, You are my portion and my cup of blessing; You hold my future.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleaseant places; indeed I have a beautiful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord who counsels me – even at night my conscience instructs me.
I keep the Lord in mind always because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad, and spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely. For You will not abandon me nor allow Your Faithful One to see the realm of the dead.
You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures!”
(thoughts inspired by a Max Lucado sermon)
