We must believe, in Christ we have a gracious God


We must trust and believe we have a gracious Father because of Jesus. No matter what trouble God allows to come we must believe He is good. 


We are sinners there is no requirement for God to be gracious to sinners yet because we know he sent and gave his best, his Son, to die and pay for our sins God can be gracious and is faithful to sinners who believe in the Lord. 

Our prayers in many cases are mixed with our tears, yet, we must look at Jesus, the Gift of God on the cross and we can be convinced - God can be gracious to us.

Watch this promise below. It is so magnanimous our mind find it hard to wrap around it; but it is there, we did not write it, the HS did. It is for us, sinners begging for mercy from an Almighty God. Look at the things you have been provided, food on the table, roof above your head, alive today reading this post. Things could be worst, but if this is not what you are experiencing, turn to God and ask him to be gracious to you on account of Christ. He will and has, you will see all things will work together for your good.

Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
