Full Redemption

Yesterday I joined a group of people from my former church and prayed over a young lady having surgery today at Texas Children's' Hospital, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I cried a lot yesterday afternoon, I yelled to the Lord...I am tired of people especially children being attacked by satan in the form of cancer. So many people at my former church not to mention around the world stricken with this terrible disease.

I know this is not the Lord's plan for His people. He loves us, Jer 29:11 tells us:

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Psalm 130 tells us we are fully redeemed, not kinda redeemed, but fully redeemed.

Gal 3:12-14 states:
The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, "The man who does these things will live by them."Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree."He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

As we are hit with bad news on all sides, remember to keep your eyes focused on the Lord. In Him we find rest, hope, love, grace, our covenant promises to name a few things.

Abide in Him, in Him we have victory...we are fully redeemed
