Most struggle with a relationship with God because while He is basing it off of eternal and incomparable Love – they are basing it off of the law! In this dynamic a person will always be lacking because they are still under that which was fulfilled by Christ who lives inside them!
How strong is that which holds you?
How well does God know you?
“But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” – Isaiah 43:1
I am convinced that most people don’t have a good relationship with God because they don’t understand the depth, width and amazing capability of His Love for us.
Here is the kicker- we never will understand even the slightest amount of the immensity of His Love for us because it really is that broad and that immense!
The mountains that will be moved and the energy that He will put into having a relationship with you is beyond anything we can comprehend for a very simple reason- He is God and we are not!
This is where the Love of God comes into conflict with the Law of God in the life of a human.
The Law makes us “utterly sinful” it makes sure we know and understand how broken we are, it’s our “tutor” or “guardian” until Christ came!
The Love of God which holds us now and which added “Grace upon Grace” through Christ has the strength and capability to meet your every need- if you let it!
What typically happens in people’s lives is that they think the law has hold even after Grace has taken hold- this causes multiple spiritual, social and psychological problems.
If you have a screen of shame and condemnation every time you look at the Perfect Love of God- you will never be able to see that Love!
God’s Perfect Love is The Love that drives out fear, guilt, condemnation and shame! It is The answer to so many of life’s problems that it must be understood in order to know The Peace that He has for you.
To that end read, study, eat, sleep and breathe if you need to grasp even an inkling of the Love of God! In this there is Freedom and Peace like you have never known- you will know when you find it because you won’t be about “doing” works but about resting!
