“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. -1 John 5:13-15
If we believe that we are bad people, or that we can’t change, or it’s too late to change, or if we think we have sinned too many times and are far away from God, then I just want to tell you that you believe totally wrong. If you believe any of those things then please understand that those beliefs and feelings are from Satan, who is the great accuser.
Every single person, no matter who you are, or what you have done, can absolutely change, and it’s never too late to change, and no one, and I mean no one is a bad person (far far from it) in the eyes of God. We are all Gods beloved children, and he sent his only begotten son, to pay the ultimate price, and die for all of us, taking each and every one of our sins upon himself so we do not have to pay the price in the next life.
There is not one sin that God can’t forgive, and if we truly desire to repent and change our hearts, then God will cleanse us, no matter what we have done in the past.
God doesn’t focus on our pasts, or our present, but he does focus and only focuses on our futures and where we’re heading, and we ALL have such bright futures ahead if we can stop letting Satan lie to us, and make us believe that we are not worthy. If only we all can know just how immense, eternal and unconditional God’s love is for every single human being, then we would never ever let Satan make us think so negative on ourselves. If we desire to change, then we are truly on the correct path to God.
None of us are anywhere near perfect, but that’s the whole purpose of Jesus Christ. He is the only perfect being to ever step foot on the earth, and if we hold onto him (and we’re never going to be perfect, and that’s OK) he will make us whole, despite our imperfections.
I pray that each and everyone of us can find a peace of mind, and a comfort, in knowing that God loves us unconditionally and eternally, with a love that our human understanding will never ever comprehend. GOD IS LOVE, and he wants each and everyone of us to be happy, and find joy, and I promise, that if we can stop being so hard on ourselves, that is what puts a huge smile on God’s face, and he and his angels rejoice in the heavens when we can love and accept ourselves and our imperfections.
