I've discovered that nothing in life is right — nothing feels right, nothing works right — until you know you are right with God. When you really know God loves you and accepts you, then you can overcome sin, the rejection and judgment of others and any other opposition that comes against you in this life. This is the inheritance God promises His children in His Word.
We see this truth in Isaiah 54:17, which says, "No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]…" (AMPC).
Our inheritance in Christ is peace, righteousness, security and triumph over opposition. Another way to say it is we get everything Jesus worked and died for when He took the sins of the world upon Himself. And when we accept His sacrifice and believe God has forgiven our sins, we no longer have to bear the reproach — the shame, guilt and blame — for our sin. more >>

As a kid, I heard this crazy story in the Bible about Jacob putting on a goat skin to fool dad (Isaac). I had several thoughts about that: creepy, scratchy, itchy, liar, deceiver, scoundrel (deceiver came from Sunday school lesson — my vocab wasn't that advanced).
But as I read the story today (Genesis 27), I have an entirely different thought. And it's this: everyone — not just Jacob — everyone in the story is a scoundrel!!! It's like Pirates of the Caribbean 2 or 3 or 4 — I forget which one — where everyone in the movie lies, and everyone is out for themselves. Everyone is a wretch!
Same in Genesis 27. I'll explain. more >>
