Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 8:10 which says, “Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us.”
So in this verse it is saying that no plan against the Lord’s people will stand, but you may be wondering what that has to do with us because we aren’t from Israel, well you don’t have to be from Israel to be one of God’s people, ”
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. (ESV 1 John 3:2)
So we are God’s children, but how? Because Jesus died for us, He was (and is) God’s son (although He is God to, because God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are three in one) and He not only gave us His righteousness and His holiness but He gave us the right to be children of God, God in a sense adopted us, so if we have accepted Christ as our saviour then we are a child of God, thank you so much Jesus, for dying for us and giving us the right to be children of God.
So Jesus died for us because we couldn’t (we aren’t and we never will) be perfect, but that is why Jesus died for us, so God could look at us as though He was looking at Jesus, because now if we have accepted Jesus as our saviour then He is in us, and the Holy Spirit is also in us, and He is making us more like Jesus, of course we sin, but now we don’t sin habitually, thank you so much Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins?
