Moments of forgetfulness are often painful and frustrating.
We forget things of great importance and cherished value, usually at times that are inconvenient.
Thus, these moments rob of joy and energy... costing us precious time from our day and dollars from our financial footing. We struggle to remember.
Conversely, we often remember the things we should forget.
Our failures. Our regrets. Our mistakes. Our sins.
Fortunately, in the eyes of God, for the believer, He sees grace. He sees the blood of Christ.
Our sins are cast into the sea of forgetfulness.
We hold things against ourselves, that God does not... which can interfere with our perspective and approach to life; oten at times when it should not be allowed to do so.
When such moments interfere with minnistry and the advancement of the work of Christ through us in the impact we are trying to make for the glory of God, it can seem that things are simply being made worse.
Pray, this #deaconThursday, for those in church leadership and administration, who are under spiritual attack. May they be strengthened and encouraged, that their identity is in Christ and not in the moments of weakness, mistakes and sins. Though we may fail others and ourselves, may church operatives be reminded that God never fails us, leaves us or forsakes us. May the blood of Christ wash over us anew and minds renewed afresh by the word of God. May the things which attempt to interfere with ministry be diminished and cast aside; that God in His gace and mercy would favor the efforts of those who seek to serve and minister the gospel of Christ to a world and community in desparate need of Him.
For the His glory
For the cause of Jesus Christ.
