"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?"Sadly, too many try to find meaning in themselves or from their worldly lives.
When someone has never prayed in their lives it's great to teach them how to pray and when they believe these are great Scriptures to share with them that Christ does indeed dwell in our hearts in response to the prayer of faith which is as simple as asking Jesus to save us from our sins.
The problem doesn't lay in what we do or not but in the fact that it's in our "human nature" that sin resides. Be sincere and honest with yourself and Christ. We are all sinful creatures who need deliverance from ourselves and the enslaving of Satan over our lives.
As you receive Christ's forgiveness He will abide in you by His Spirit for eternity! As we all know it, life on earth isn't and will never be easy for anyone including those who surrender themselves to their Savior.
I will not leave you thinking that joy, fulfillment, meaning and victory aren't possible in our lives in this dying world. Rain and sunshine coexist and they sometimes bring about a rainbow-a reminder of God's faithfulness, and goodness in accomplishing His promises and taking pleasure in giving us what we also desire.
We've been given a void by God to go back to Him to live fully in His presence, sheltered by His unconditional love and security. Peace can reign in our hearts in the midst of storms as Christ can calm our seas...
