STATE YOUR CASE

How amazingly wonderful it is to know we can start over! What a great, loving, kind, forgiving God we serve. He’s on our side, not against us.

And just so you know…we’re not waiting on Him to fix or change things, He’s waiting on us to do what He’s already told us we can do, what we can be, and what we can have.

I was trying to print something a bit ago and I received a message… {Printer not responding}. I had a disconnect somewhere. I could not get the job done until I shut everything down and started over.

I could have yelled at the printer, pushed buttons, made statements like….”this will never work….I can’t do this….I give up.” And guess what? My paper would still not be printed. When I got my connections in line with the computer and printer….It worked!!!

That’s kind of how life, and God is. Many become disconnected with the power source (God) and wonder why things aren’t working out, or something jumps on the band of life and stalls us out.  

We get frustrated, upset, and depressed and still nothing goes our way.

Take a deep breath, remember who you are, tell the enemy to take a hike, and present your case before the Lord.

Isaiah 43:25-26 is an awesome couple of verses. It starts with an enormous promise of forgiveness. After you read this scripture, you should be dancing a jig!!!

25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake;
And I will not remember your sins.
26 Put Me in remembrance;
Let us contend together;
State your case, that you may be acquitted.

You might be asking how do I state my case. Well, if as the scripture states, you have just been forgiven for everything and God doesn’t remember it any longer, what do you want Him to remember?

State you case;

My case to God;

God, remember that You sent Jesus to save me. Remember You healed me. Remember You have provided for me. Remember You have set me free from fear and doubt. I am a child of Yours, and I have favor with You and man. I am the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. You get the point…Right?

If Jesus is your Lord and Savior…you have been acquitted. Man… that is great news. If He’s not your Lord and Savior, ask Him to be!!! He has NEVER turned anyone who comes to Him away. He won’t start with you.
