You cannot earn My favor, but you can depend upon My grace for you and those you love, as you trust in Me rather than yourself, says the LORD. It is not your goodness, but Mine. It is not your record of good conduct or right decisions that merit My favor, but your trust in My redemptive power, My finished work on the cross, My blood that was shed for you, and My infallible love, goodness and mercy for you. Serve Me because you love Me and pursue Me with all your heart because I AM your GOD, says the LORD.
I have removed your sin as I have given you MY righteousness, says the LORD. You cannot please Me without faith. It is your faith in Me that saves you, heals you, delivers you, and unlocks doors for you. Your trust in Me is what I long for. For all who sincerely believe in Me and trust Me, will also hear My voice, and follow Me, says the Lord. I will pour out My blessings upon blessings upon blessings upon you and give you unspeakable gifts as you entrust Me with your life, take Me at My Word, and release your faith that honors ME and credits me for everything that is GOOD in your life that I bestow upon you, freely and abundantly, says the LORD.
