Do the math
You don’t have to be good at math to do this kind of math.
Let’s CONFIRM how much the Holy Spirit has done for you:
How much suffering was reduced from your life after you made a covenant with the Lord Jesus;
How much peace of mind was gained;
How many nights of restful sleep were recovered;
Overall, a better quality of life has happened…
Surely, you will be surprised.
Don’t take into consideration the dreams you haven’t realized yet.
After all, as you cross this desert to the Promised Land, there will always be achievements to be attained.
But, let’s face it, a lot has happened, hasn’t it?
The blessings that have happened until the present are evidence of a promising future. It is the voice of faith that guarantees this.
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us… Hebrews 12.1
Do you remember when you first came to Church?
Downcast, an anemic smile, dead fish eyes…
What about today?
Frustrations, disappointments, low self-esteem, past traumas, not being appropriately loved, all of these things went straight to hell.
This does not mean you don’t have any more problems, but now they’re under your feet, because the power of faith is inside you, there is an energy that emanates from the Throne of God, which sustains your strength every day to fight and conquer.
It’s the Spirit of the One who has dedicated His life to working within you!
Just know one thing: whether you believe it or not, the Spirit of the Lord Jesus is with you!
As the traditional Christian hymn says:
Count your blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done…
