But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
In the original relationship between man and God we see that there’s a force, Satan, who hates healthy relationship in life with God and his mission is to destroy that relationship. How does he do it? Through fear. His script is still the same as it was in the garden, if you listen to God you’re going to miss out. That created a perceived loss in Adam and Eve which led them to think and act on that fear. Fear opens the door to the enemy. We have to fight the lies in our relationships with God and people and not let fear come in and destroy the relationship. It’s important to feed our faith in the people that we are connected to. And, we have to feed our faith in God.
If half the battle is recognizing the motives and intentions of God toward you, His person, His plan, and His promises, then half the battle is coming into an awareness of who He is, how He feels about you and how He performs.
The difference of the law of Old Testament and the grace of the New Testament is running from the fear of failure to the motivation of His love and acceptance towards you. Don’t buy Satan’s lie. God totally accepts you, sins and all.
Father, teach my heart to trust Your perfect unconditional love for me, Thank you.
