The Greatest Exchange

Years ago I was talking to a young man about the fact that when you let Christ run your life, He will provide and look out for you. This young man wasn’t ready for that; he wanted to do it all himself. Being a youngster, he had lots of great plans and great ideas, which is very good, but he told me he was not ready to let Christ run his life. He found it too difficult and was just not ready for it. What became of him I don’t know, but God is Love and loves him so much.
There is a scripture in the Gospel of John where Jesus said “You did not choose me, but I chose you.” That means when He knocks at the door of our hearts, and we let Him in, our old life dies on the Cross with Him, and we rise up into a New Life in Him! That is the Greatest Exchange of All Time!! Then the plus in that is 2 things – one is that it guarantees eternal life with Him, and the second is that you have an abundant life for today!
John 10:10 explains to us what Jesus promises: “…I am come that they might have life (eternal), and that they might have it more abundantly.”
We trust His Words and His Promises for our existence here, like “My God shall Provide all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus.” That includes our health, “By His stripes we are healed.” ALLL our needs.
And a reinforcing fact besides all that is “Greater is He that is in Me than He that is in the world” – which means God is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (He knows all about us and knows all the future, all our lives, all the beginning and end), and then He is omnipresent (which means He is everywhere and in everything)!
This is the God who lives in us by His Spirit!
So those facts are written for us to trust Him, believe in Him, and enjoy it which fulfills the promises of an abundant life in Him.
This is God’s love for all of you today; may His blessings, His encouragement, and His presence guide you and bless you abundantly today. God loves you all and so do we,
