Often times in life I believe we all come to a place where we must ask ourselves how is our relationship with Jesus Christ? The bible clearly states that a man is to examine his own heart, and yet we don’t always do it, do we?
I am the first to say it’s not easy and the reason it’s not is because no one really want to admit to themselves that they aren’t as close as they thought they are to Jesus. One of the things I love about my husband and that is He is a born again Christian ( and I say that because being married I have seen why God said do not be yoked with an unbeliever). I like the idea that him and I are able to talk about the Word of God and to share our thoughts on certain scriptures.
And so yesterday was one of those days where I had to bounce some thoughts off to him, since my sabbatical and my surgery I’ve been noticing I been feeling a little to relax physically if that is even the right word for it. As far as spiritually I am in great peace. And so when I spoke to my husband about this he mentioned something to me that I never even given thought about. He mentioned to me that sometimes when a person has been on a sabbatical for a period of time the enemy comes in to get you off-balance. Since I was on one and had to have emergency surgery, the enemy tried to come against me. Look at this way, when you are sick your physical body can’t fight, anything that comes your way will weigh on your physically and spiritually and that is what the enemy was trying to do. But he must have forgotten who I belong to, because the Love of Jesus kept me when while I rest.
In our walk with the Lord we all will have questions we wonder if the Lord is pleased with us, we wonder if we are doing His Will and we will at times question our salvation. And so I can say that no matter how much I change God’s Love is always the same. He doesn’t love me any less all because I ask questions, He doesn’t love me less when I doubt, He doesn’t love me less when I go in error. NO! His love is always the same….Oh doesn’t that make you wanna jump up and down? We serve an amazing GOD!
