Get Hold Of Faith Pictures
Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” Genesis 15:5
Abram saw himself childless since his wife, Sarah, was barren. But the Lord saw just the opposite. He saw Abram with not just one, but countless descendants! That’s why He changed Abram’s name to “Abraham,” which means “father of many nations.” The new name helped Abraham to see himself with many children. The Lord also gave him another faith picture—the numerous stars in the sky. “So shall your descendents be,” the Lord said. So whenever Abraham heard his name called or looked at the night sky, he would remember the Lord’s promise and “see” all his children. Eventually, he had Isaac through Sarah!
Beloved, get hold of faith pictures from God’s Word. See what the Lord says about you and your particular situation. Don’t let these faith pictures depart from your eyes. Keep them in your heart. And one day, you’ll be experiencing what you have beheld in faith! #wholeness#joy#betterthanlife#toogoodtobetrue#healing#hope#freegift#gospel#goodnews#grace#gracerevolution#unmeritedfavor#undeservedfavor#mercy#grateful#unconditionallove#forgiveness#nevergoingback#neverbethesame#thankful#Jesus#finishedwork

The Grace Breakthrough
But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4
Grace is the most exacting, precise, inflexible, and transformative truth in the whole Bible. It does not mean God is nice. It does not mean God is lenient. Grace takes all your natural inclinations about God and flips them on their head. And the biggest problem you have to deal with is that the unrenewed heart is hopelessly blind to its own resistance to grace.
The gospel is veiled. The mind is blinded. The only way to really get what grace is all about is to have the very Person of Grace come and find you — personally. When he does, he with preach his gospel to you. And you will, by grace through faith, have a breakthrough moment. Ever since that breakthrough came for me, the grace of God has been my focus. It’s time to open yourself to the mother of all breakthroughs: the Gospel of Grace in Christ Breakthrough. #wholeness#joy#betterthanlife#toogoodtobetrue#healing#hope#freegift#gospel#goodnews#grace#gracerevolution#unmeritedfavor#undeservedfavor#mercy#grateful#unconditionallove#forgiveness#nevergoingback#neverbethesame#thankful#Jesus#finishedwork

The Gospel's Nature
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved. 1 Corinthians 15:1-2
By nature, the gospel is good news. That’s what the word Gospel means. Good news. That means that when a person first hears the gospel, it feels too good to be true. Have you ever felt that way about what Jesus offers you? Maybe you’ve never actually heard the good news uncorrupted by the ridiculous legalism we all offer.
It’s good news because it offers a free gift. It’s good news because it wipes human effort off the table. It’s good news because it is paid for by Christ. It’s good news because it is finished. It’s good news because it is once for all. It’s good news because it doesn’t go away. It’s good news because it only requires that you be a sinner and know it. It’s good news because you don’t earn it. It’s good news because you don’t deserve it. It’s good news because it requires zero performance, zero improvement, zero obligation, zero duty, and zero worthiness. All of that is very good news, wouldn’t you say? It’s such good news that it gets your inner legalist all riled up, all fussy and angry.
Grace is God doing for you what you can’t do for yourself, free of charge, based not on what you deserve, but on the blood of Calvary’s Cross.
Grace is unmerited favor.
Grace is you, not earning, not deserving, not performing, not winning.
Grace is God paying all the price, and God doing all the work.
If the gospel you hear, or if the gospel you preach, is not grace through and through, it is not good news. And you can say it is, but if it piles any burden on the sinner’s back, it is not good news at all, and it is not the gospel.
Holy moly these chocolate chip cookies are goooooood 🤪
Dairy free, refined sugar free, white flour free, low carb, gluten free, & only 8 ingredients. 🍪🍪🍪🍪 To give you an idea how delicious they are - Joe came into the kitchen for seconds (and thirds) and I was putting them into a container and he goes “I don’t know why you’re even bothering to put them away.” 👌🏼
That’s the only seal of approval you need. #chocolatechipcookiesforlife#healthyfoodporn#almostgonein10minutes
This past week I've had two epic treat (aka cheat) meals. On Friday I got invited out with my family for a three course dinner that was so freakin good that I can't even begin to describe it.. And yesterday me and @fitbylouise got treated to a real feast fest for two real foodies like us. The feast considered of one delicious waffle, one nutella cheesecake and a yummy hot chocolate. Thank you @chocomania.se for serving us a divine treat meal 💖🍨🙏
Are you guys doing treat (cheat) meals? Do you count your macros? Do you eat intuitively? I wanna know!! 👇
Like many others I’ve seen, as the deal was spread through here, I took advantage of the sale/price/item description issue through Walmart and added some new @besseytools_na clamps to the lineup. First impressions compared to Jorgensons, light. We’ll see how the perform. At 50% off, you can’t do better... As the legend goes, you can never have enough clamps... Truly though, I think I’m good on parallels with 4x 50”, 4x 36”, and 16x 24.” Wouldn’t mind having a couple 12” though 😂. #steinwoodworks#toogoodtobetrue#besseyclamps
