Children of Promise

Is your life a struggle sometimes? All the time? I was reading in Galatians this morning and realized the reason we struggle is because we trust in the law not in grace. We think that if we do everything right we’ll be blessed, that our obedience in keeping the commands of God will gain his favor. WRONG!

Galatians 4:28-29 “And you, dear brothers and sisters, are children of the promise, just like Isaac. But you are now being persecuted by those who want you to keep the law, just as Ishmael, the child born by human effort, persecuted Isaac, the child born by the power of the Spirit.”

We are born of the Spirit, made free by what Jesus did on the cross. Our obligation is to believe that what He did was enough. Enough to make us free and keep us free. Enough to heal every disease, meet every need, take away our yoke of bondage once and for all.

Paul said it’s a gift that we must receive by faith, not works. Man can’t boast or get the glory for such a freely given gift.

I declare I will not struggle anymore! I’m made perfect because HE is perfect. When you look at me, look really hard because staring back at you is Jesus, my hope of glory.
