Therefore Now No Condemnation

My Help Comes From the Lord

Therefore now no condemnation!

While driving to work recently, I saw a humorous sight.  A gray heron was sitting on the bank of a pond. Just the sight of his very long wiggly neck made me smile.  As I drove on, the Lord reminded me that all of His creations are awesome and beautiful.

And He also has a wonderful sense of humor.

Isn’t it soothing to watch a beautiful sunset? Or, how about listening to a gentle rain?

When the stresses of this life seem overwhelming, it’s important to remember where your help comes from.  Just how do we continue to live our lives successfully in this world?  How do we live a life that is victorious?

“I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help?”  Psalm 121:1

The answer lies in trusting the Father.  When we feel insecure or unworthy, we must remember that the Father loves us.  We are His children.

Do you believe God sees you as a failure?

On the contrary.  He loves you dearly.

Take the time to talk with Him daily.  Read His Word.  Remember to look at His beautiful creations. You’re one of them!

Meditate on the Lord.  You will experience a peace that passes all understanding.

“…and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:7
