If we only have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. Truth sets you free. Stand up to Satan with it. Seek to know truth in your every thought. Does it line up with God's love for you? Seek God's direction in each moment of your day, wherein it is impossible to fail Him. Don't put it off any longer. Your life depends upon it. Steps of faith give us Victory!
Through much tribulation we enter Kingdom of God (letting Him sit upon throne of our heart). For those who don't choose it, it just isn't bad enough yet ... bad enough to place all those wounds where they rightfully belong (on Satan's door step) ... bad enough to quit telling God what He believes and get our every next answer from Him ... bad enough to desire praises from God instead of men ... bad enough to say, "Here am I, send me."
Perhaps only then can God be a proud parent, again, (not perfect children, but children having perfect hearts) - children who look into their Father's eyes with complete faith and adoration.
God raises weak to confound wise. He wants to love us in ways we never dreamed. Isn't it about time we let Him?
