For you...

You may have done what people said you have done, but


You can be used by God in the morning and by the devil in the evening...Remember Peter - Matt. 16: 16-23
Even those who walked with Jesus daily failed. God is not surprised. He knows that man may fall but He also knows how to restore.

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand." (Psa 37:23-24 KJV)

"For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief."
(Pro 24:16 KJV)

Jesus does not condemn, criticize or destroy...He is willing to forgive.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. "(1Jn 1:9 KJV)

So refuse to be discourage and disheartened. Just as Jesus alerted Peter to his enemy and prayed for Peter...
"And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren."
(Luk 22:31-32 KJV)

...Jesus is also interceding for you.
"Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them." (Heb 7:25 KJV)

So, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might and DON'T GIVE ACCESS TO THE DEVIL. That may sound easy, but it comes by discipline and with time.

Have you failed?

King Jesus with open arms of love is waiting for you.
"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isa 1:18 KJV)

The Blood and the Glory

"For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God." (Rom 3:23 ASV)

When God created man in His image and likeness (Gen. 1:26), man was also clothed with God's glory.

"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him but little lower than God, And crownest him with glory and honor. Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet:" (Psa 8:3-6 ASV)

Man is ranked just under the Godhead - that is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. God delegated autority and power to Man to have dominion over His creation. The first book of Genesis speaks of the creation of God on the earth. God crowned us with glory and honour. 
The glory of God refers to the manisfested presence of God or the anointing of God. God gave us His ability. However the day that Adam and Eve listened to the serpent and sinned, they fell from glory and honour.
Man sinned and fell short of the glory of God. However, God had a plan to redeem man. God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son (JESUS) to save and restore Man.
Man can rise once again to His former image by believing and receiving Jesus. For as many as receive Him, He gave POWER to become the Sons of God!
Man has been restored through the sacrifice of the Son Jesus Christ.
When Jesus shed His blood on the cross of Calvary, he dealt with sin nature and redeemed Man to his former state of glory and honour.
Man was crowned with glory. He fell from glory. Through Jesus Christ HE CAN RETURN TO GLORY!!!

"...but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, even the wisdom that hath been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds unto our glory: which none of the rulers of this world hath known: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory: " (1Co 2:7-8 ASV)

The Father of Glory (Ephe. 1:17) sent His beloved Son, Jesus the Lord of Glory, to shed His blood and to restore man who was crown with glory to be restored to glory and the devil and his cohorts did not know it for had they known it, they wouldn't have crucified Jesus!

"Oh the blood of Jesus...There is power, wonder-working power in the blood of the Lamb."

The blood did not only save you and redeem you but the Blood restored you to your original state of creation. The blood gives you POWER TO DOMINATE and DESTROY the works of the devil.
