Looking unto Jesus THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world (began) unto our glory, (salvation): Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known (that Christ would die on the cross for us to be free from sin), they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:7-8. Here's my point. Before this world and time ever began, the Lord knew man would mess up in sin, and that only be sending His Son, Jesus the Christ to die on the bloody cross of Calvary, could man ever be free from its bondages. From the time of Adam and Eve, to the last man standing in Revelation, Christ came ONE TIME to pay for the Freedom of ALL sinners, that ALL who had Faith in God, could Live in God for all eternity. Christ Paid It All for all who came before Him, during His time here on earth, and after Him. All 6000 years of man's existence in sin on this earth, HAVE BEEN PAID FOR, IN FULL, ONE TIME, FOREVER. Once you understand that Christ paid for everything, you'll understand that He Paid for ALL your past, your present, and ALL of your Eternal Future. THEREFORE, you have the Right, today, to ask the Lord for EVERYTHING that the Lord has for you FOR TODAY, to Grow you into CHRISTLIKENESS for today, towards eternity. The Shed Blood of Christ not only paid for your sins, it Paid for EVERYTHING the Lord needs to do to Grow you and to Mature you in Christ. I'll illustrate a prayer. "Lord, would You give me all the Chastening, Chastising, and Correction, with all the Praise, Glory, and Honour, that You have for me FOR TODAY that I may Grow in Christ TODAY, as You determined for me before time began, I ask in Jesus Holy Name, Amen". You're asking for today's "dose of Growth" FOR TODAY, that you will Forever, Be Blessed.
