So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death. – Romans 8:1-2, The Passion Translation
The gavel has been pounded.
The Judge has made the final decree.
The evidence of love’s sacrifice entered in.
The testimony of death and sin stricken.
It’s power dismantled on the cross.
The accused has been acquitted.
The case is closed.
Your life in union with the Son, empowered by the Spirit and embraced by the Father.
You have been redeemed by Jesus to live a God discovering, God serving, God-ordained life.
But that doesn’t mean it is easy.
There will be storms that you must go through.
There will be higher altitudes to climb to.
There will be unexpected turbulence along the way.
I dislike turbulence. It’s always unexpected and it always makes me feel afraid as the plane passes through it before it returns to normal.
God doesn’t cause the disruptions but He will use them, if you let Him.
He will use them to teach you how not to give up.
He will use them to strengthen your faith.
He will use them to forge your character.
“And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:2-4 NIV
My friend, Jesus knows where you are on the journey and what is disrupting it. He is with you and will not leave you in it. Hold onto the truth of His love and let that truth bloom into hope.
The turbulence will cease and you will get to where God wants you to be.
