Here we start to understand God’s provision: God wanted to teach us that a sacrifice was necessary as an atonement for sinful man. Instead of man dying for his rebellion and sin, God designated a sacrifice to be offered in his place.
The Bible teaches, however, that many sacrifices were not sufficient to atone for the great sins of man and his iniquity. God met the need by sending Christ to perform the act of atonement, to offer Himself in place of these sacrifices. This is how God purposed from the beginning that He would save man from his iniquity and sin. Christ became the Ultimate Sacrifice.
Jesus spoke of the peace that can come to man’s heart through knowing the true freedom that you, my dear lady, can obtain.
John 8:32, 34, 46 “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. …Whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. …Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
The only way to restore the peace and happiness that God meant for you is to be free from sin, which is the cause of all our strife—between us and God, between man and wife, between brother and sister. My dear lady, ask God to free you from the bondage of sin! The sacrifice has been made, and is offered to us as God’s gift. God is on your side, and is pleased to defend you. He wants to restore the peace that has been stolen from you.
I pray that God will open your heart to accept this precious gift—freedom from sin, accepting the Sacrifice of Christ, whom God sent to save you and every woman like you, and to save all the world.
Restoring the Bond of Marriage
My dear lady, let me share with you God’s truth that will come as a sharp arrow and cutting sword, straight and to the point. The Bible says, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.” Psalm 127:1 It is not speaking of a literal building, but of our family and our own lives. If you are trying to repair the walls of your family so that love, peace and harmony will dwell in your home, the only way is for God to take hold and strengthen the foundations Himself. God will not enter unless you invite Him in without conditions. Listen to His words:
Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
God does not force Himself on us, but He makes a promise that cannot be changed. God’s promises are faithful and true, and do not change because of our circumstances.
James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”
Therefore, I tell you, shake off the dust of the thoughts that destroyed you and your family. Take heed, for there is no time for procrastination, so awake!
James 4:14 …you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”
The choice is yours, for you alone to make. Do not give opportunity to that devourer, Satan, to control the path of your family here on earth, nor let him determine your fate in eternity.
