Faith Through Grace
"[As for] God, his way [is] perfect; the word of the LORD [is] tried: he [is] a buckler to all them that trust in him."
— 2 Samuel 22:31 (KJV)
God’s way is always perfect; the creator of the universe fearfully and wonderfully created us in his own image and likeness. His desire is to lavish us with his infinite love, to this end his ultimate plan is to have restored fellowship with us that was severed when sin entered into the world. The righteous God’s solution for delivering his beloved creation from the detrimental effect of sin, is by giving us the ultimate gift of love; his son Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, the word of the LORD, became a part of mankind, sent as a baby born of a virgin to show us how to walk with God in victory. Jesus is the bridge that connects us to God. He is our faithful high priest that can relate to every pain we have encountered. He was tried in all points: dealt with lack, he was rejected, forsaken, betrayed, and falsely condemned to death yet he was sinless. All of the pain and injustice in the world is a result of sin and it pains him to see it. He loves us and he demonstrated his love for us by enduring the gruesome death of Calvary cross to pay our debt in full.
Jesus is a buckler to all of them that trusts him. Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, took the penalty of sin which is death. When we receive the free gift of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ, we become new creatures, and thus we are no longer led by sin but by faith. We do not have to handle the vicissitudes of life’s challenges alone. No matter what we experience here on earth: disappointments, loss of income, loss of health, or loss of a loved one, we have Jesus on our side. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He will be with us always until the end of time. Jesus is our healer, provider, savior, and comforter. We can trust him in knowing that his word is true and that is making intercession for us. He will restore the years of disappointments, lack, failures, neglect, mistreatments, health challenges etc. Cast all your care upon him. He truly loves you and cares about you. When you hurt, he is hurt as well by the suffering that entered the world through sin. Jesus gives us peace, joy and hope. If you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior please keep the faith and hold on to his promises. If you have not received Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, you can do so now if you wish, there is no need to delay. Repeat these words in the sincerity of your heart and let Jesus into your life: Jesus please forgive me of all of my sins, I receive you as my personal Lord and savior, please fill me with your spirit, teach me your word and lead me and guide me to a church where I can learn more about you, amen.
