The greatest beginning any of us can have is becoming a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). And a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus is the key to a restored life, healing in your soul, and the second chance to become everything you were created to be!
Whether you’re just starting your life with God or you gave your heart to Him long ago, it’s important to understand that growing in Christ is a process that takes time. We learn how to walk by faith little by little, one step at a time. It’s like this: When a baby is born, he cannot walk nor crawling, but when it starts crawling, their will be a time the baby will want to stand up and walk. The baby falls several times before getting the steps.
That’s what God is asking us to do. No matter how many times we fall down in life, if we continue to get back up, eventually we’ll get to the place where we need to be.
God will lead us into the best life ee can possibly have, but first we need to let go of our past mistakes. Hebrews 8:12 says: For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.
God chooses to not only forgive all of our sins, but also to forget them! And we need to stop remembering what God has forgotten.
We are no surprise to God. He knows everything about me and you. We’re no surprise to Him! Yet when we turn to Him, He still opens His arms and invites us into a relationship with Him.
