Our Story Is His-Story! (Battling Depression)
God Changes Our Lives!
Little Is Enough! But Whose Little is it?
This question is often asked and sometimes demanded as an argument that all will be saved in the end. Let's look at the true nature of love and see the characteristics involved. Once we do, we'll see that a loving God will indeed send unrepentant, unsafe, arrogant, unwilling, and destructive people to hell. We don't get to decide whether or not there should be one, but God has gone to great lengths to give us a choice and give us salvation from it. In fact, there isn't any more He can do beyond giving us His Son.
We are all battling depression, anxiety, and feeling down. This is because of where we are not who we are! We are in a fallen and sin cursed world and being down is as natural as wading into the ocean is wet and cold. Remember who are you and what Christ has done--we are new creations. Our history was put on the cross; His History has become ours--we made an exchange. Don't let the evil ones deceive us with the "I" statements that come to our mind.
Stop focusing on our goals and dreams...Focus On God's Call to Save the Lost...When Mary and Joseph accepted the call it changed their lives forever. Their dreams and goals were put aside. Their lives were fulfilled in carrying out God's plans. This world is passing away live with eternity in mind for today
There are many judgments described in scripture we can be confused about which ones we are in or going to be under. Grace takes us out from under the law's judgment and being born again means we won't experience the Great White Throne judgment of the Father. But there is a coming judgment...
When we think of little faith we often think of the mustard seed faith that Jesus taught about. Most of us might believe that this mustard seed of faith is our faith that will move mountains. We don't have any faith of our own; it all came from Jesus to us when we heard the word of God. God's word is the seed (mustard seed). What this means is that having a little bit of faith from God will move mountains!
