Thought for the day 2nd of September 2011
„Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven” Matthew 9:2.
Forgiveness of sins has a lot of positive consequences. If we know that God has forgiven us our sins we gain courage. We are no longer afraid to be punished for deep assurance of being forgiven gives us peace and very strong and deep inner freedom. Our souls are no longer depressed by feelings of unworthiness, guilt, fear and condemnation. You get a status of a righteous person in the eyes of God.
As sins are forgiven you can also expect a physical healing (healing of your diseases) for disease is a direct consequence of sin and when the cause (sin) is solved, the consequences (diseases) must disappear. So, you can come to God with confidence and ask Him to heal you. Believe that He will and you will see what you are asking for. Why? Because your sins are forgiven! Take heart now and sin no more! Hope you were encouraged by these thoughts.
