Are You Handling It Yourself?
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? – Romans 8:32
God spared not His own Son. God gave His only begotten Son born of the virgin Mary in exchange for us.
I was meditating on this Scripture one time. As clear as day, I could see the scene at the Cross. Jesus is dying in the background, yet God the Father has His back to Him. Instead God the Father opens His arms to me and says, “Now I can love you.”
Sin separated us from God, but once Jesus was punishment for all our sins–past, present and future–sin is not the issue that prevents us from being close to God. It is us.
When we sin, we can go to Him. Instead we try to handle things ourselves.
We are terrible gods in our lives. Let God rule supreme instead. Come to Him, talk to Him and the more you run to Him with everything, the more He will accomplish in your life.
