We can face disappointment in life and want to give up hope. Even though we hit low points, as long as we take our eyes off the ground and look up, we can start moving in the direction of that mountain top.
We were made to flourish. We were made in the image of the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, omnibenevolent King of the Universe. We were plucked from eternity and placed on the planet for mission.
When we lost our way and were without hope, Jesus came from heaven to earth rescue us. He lived a perfect life for us, died as us, and was raised for our justification. Now we can receive His right standing with God by faith.
As we grow in our understanding of how unconditionally we are loved, of how righteous we are in Jesus and how favored we are by faith, we will be energized to step into our calling and purpose and reign in life.
Romans 5:17 (The Voice) - If one man’s sin brought a reign of death--that’s Adam’s legacy—how much more will those who receive grace in abundance and the free gift of redeeming justice reign in life by means of one other man—Jesus the Anointed.
