Have you been beating yourself up lately? Stop that.

If our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. —1 John 3:20

Who knows every little thing, medium thing, and big thing about us? The Lord knows, and He is so much greater than any self-condemnation you might feel. As reborn believers (Jn. 3:3) our confidence toward the Lord and our right relationship with Him; it all springs out of His great love for us ..not from our best performance or works in this life. He is the Initiator and we respond. He woos and we ask for forgiveness when we blow it and He not only does.. instantaneously ..but He also teaches us to walk in victory cuz of His great love. In fact, “We know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us” (v.24). 

"From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord;
I’ve never kept secret what you’re up to.
You’ve always been great toward me—what love!
You snatched me from the brink of disaster!" Psalm 86:12-13 msg
