When we place our faithfulness to God in the limelight ( showing that is by our effort to read, go, do for Him that keeps us close to Him and allows blessing to flow) We have not trusted in HIS faithfulness to us. We have mixed a bit of Old “law “ Covenant in with the New Covenant.
The law doesn’t encourage or praise us. Being under law is like being married to an abusive perfectionist. Even if you please your spouse and only stumble in one way here or there, they treat you as if you’re a good for nothing, sorry excuse for a human being. They act like you’re guilty of disregarding everything they‘ve ever asked of you “ whoever keeps the whole law and stumbles in one point is guilty of all” (James 2:10) …When we allow the work of Jesus to take center stage in our lives, we adopt a heavenly perspective in the midst of our earthly circumstances
~Andrew Farley – Heaven is Now
2 Tim. 2:13
If we are faithless,
He remains faithful;
He cannot deny Himself.
