But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
The reason that Jesus could endure the suffering of the cross was because He knew it was God’s perfect will. He also knew that He would be raised from the dead.
Peace results from doing God’s will and knowing that you have eternal life in Heaven. Even in times of persecution and tribulation, Christians can rejoice because God is always on our side.
We may never have all the answers to life’s problems but we do have a cure for our sins. It’s Jesus Christ. It’s forgiveness and grace. He is the One who saves us from all of our sins.
Even though Christians fall short of God’s glory, we still have forgiveness, mercy, and grace through Jesus. It’s all because Jesus knew the will of God and endured the cross.
God wants the best for you. He wants you to prosper and succeed in life, but it must be according to His will. God will reveal His will to us through His Word.
We will never know what we must do until we hear His voice. God’s Word speaks to us and gives us wisdom to choose what is right. We will never know His will for our life until we submit and obey His commands.
Have you ever found it difficult to know what God’s will is for your life? The answer lies in the fact of hearing and doing His Word. If we only hear His Word and not act upon it we are simply rejecting His great blessings. But when we hear and do His Word we are blessed.
Lord, You are my Savior and I submit to You and follow Your direction. Speak truth into me today. I keep Your Word in my heart and on my mind.
