When nothing works,Seek God’s Grace!

A lot of people are carrying emotional baggage around with them. And what we mean by emotional baggage is guilt from things that they’ve done wrong in the past and things that have gone wrong in the past. Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 NKJV). Jesus wants to give us rest from our burdens. Therefore, we have assurance that if we go to Him He will give us rest; He will set us free from the guilt that binds us to the past, and put us on a path that leads to life everlasting.

God is love. And there’s nothing that we can do to stop Him from being what He is. His grace is sufficient, inexhaustible, and all encompassing. His mercy endures forever. If He says you are forgiven then you are exactly what He said you are. Why assume the worst when the worst is not a part of your experience? Step into the new life that Christ offers you and be free from guilt. There is no condemnation in Christ.

Perhaps you feel that you’ve gone too far, and that it is too late for you. You may even feel that you have moved beyond the point of no return. We assure you that if that is how you feel then you aren’t thinking right about God. God’s arms can reach you wherever you’re at. You can’t go so far away as to escape His sight. He is everywhere. And He knows your heart better than you do. The door of opportunity for forgiveness is opened wide For You. God is waiting for you to walk through it. Simply acknowledge your sin, acknowledge if you need help or if you’ve messed up, repent of it, and accept God’s grace.

God is not out to hurt you, but rather to embrace you. He doesn’t want to put you down, but He desires to lift you up, and put you on solid ground. He wants to usher you into a better life. Let Him do that for you. Would you like that? Let God show you how great His love for you is. Cast those burdens of yours on Him, watch Him work, and watch Him give you rest! Don’t live in the past, but step forward and abide in Christ. There’s nothing that you can do to change the past. Accept that, and move on with your life. God loves you and He wants the very best for you. Choose to believe that by accepting His grace you can walk forward to the open door of His Grace. Do you want rest from your “Heavy Burdens”? Meet with God in prayer, cast your Heavy burdens on Him, and in return He will give you Rest!
