Being that this is the Christmas season which is supposed to represent Christ birthday, and too often the commercialism pulls our attention away. How about we think on; John 316 rather then the gifts we give and finding the gift that God gave to be the ultimate gift. Making the point that if we are going to celebrate Christmas then we will make a conscious decision not to eradicate the reason for Christmas which is God's will, 1 Timothy 2:4 , that all humanity should be saved through the massage of Christ suffering on Mount Calvary.
The very essence and real meaning of Christmas is about the death burial and the resurrection of Christ. So those who participate in celebrating Xmas without Christ is meaningless and secular with no power only presents. This is one of the many teachings on the "Will of God" for your life. How the bible defines and shapes God's will for our lives. Look closely at Ephesians 3: 18 ... we have power, the power to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of His love. God's will for your life is real. Why? Because God's will and plan for your lifestyle of Godly success in the earth, supersedes all your plans and Goals.
Precious people of God, we must keep our hearts focused on the things of God for out of our hearts flows the issues of life. We must understand and grow to love is 1 Corinthian 15:58 only what we do for Christ will last. Also remember serving God is more about what we do rather than what we say. Jesus said Luke 6::46 Why call me Lord/Master and do not obey the things I command/demand of you. The absolutes of God's instruction are never comprised. Hebrews 13:8 God is the same yesterday today and tomorrow. Applying and allowing the word of God to strategically (which is a word you hear me quote often) contour, shape and make affective the will of God over our life should be "The Life Mission" to make possible. The word of God says, Jesus traveled from Nazareth to Judea to be baptized of John the Baptist, who by the way, was God legal, ordained, delegated authority for Jesus life and ministry, as well as a preparer of his purpose concerning Jesus baptism. In other words John the Baptist was Jesus' pastor. Even though John suggested it should be the other way around. Jesus declared it would be out of God's will in the heavens and earth and that it was very needful for John to baptized him (Jesus). Jesus placed a demand on John the Baptist to keep rhythm, order and honor with what God's will in the earth was by insisting, it be done God's way through the prophetic spoken word of God and the Holy Spirit by Isaiah the prophet speaking concerning John the Baptist . Isaiah 40:3-5, 3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
I know some of you have felt inadequate because of your inabilities or failures (this is the enemy trying to defeat you, each misstep that feels like a failure is part of your refinement. So not a failure just a step) ....SO I say unto you continue to make straight the path that God has for your life and declare the ways of the Lord in the earth. Because your circumstances and situations are a part of your redemptive story God is writing . So leveraged the good and the bad in God's favor by Preston and striving daily to continue to be what God wants you to be.
In the past I have bared my mistakes but also rejoiced in my restoration. Also I've declared, decreed and made known my proclamation of atonement and faith in the word of God confessing relentlessly that I have the mind of Christ. You should do the same and say I am the light of the world and salt of the earth, I am led by "The Holy Spirit" who is my light and lamp, Directing me to God very distinct plan for my life an he is strongly dwelling in me to perfect that which concerneth God's Will for my life , therefore I am in His perfect will and plan for my life at every stage of my existence! For in him I live, move, and have my being for his glory! Now from Galilee to Jordon or the banks of Judea were John the Baptist was baptizing (Performing God Will) was a seven day walk. Jesus walk for seven days to arrive at God's delegated authority over his life. Better said. Jesus walked for seven days to manifest and accomplish the will of God for his life. God's strategically, purposefully, design will for your life is the absolute most essential, significant and important goal you will ever pursue and achieve. Listen to this powerful principle Christ taught. Matthew 6:33 Seek first the will of God Kingdom, then everything else will happen but first things first and that is to discover what God will is for you through the expansion of much searching of the word of God and much prayer. The overview of God's will for your life is his plan but the daily taking up your cross or position in him is the development of of maturing in Christ to the point of consistency so that the Holy Spirit can work through you powerful and mightily, Luke 2:5: and Jesus grew or matured in wisdom statue and in favor with God and man. This is a very perfect and pertinent principal for all believers; because once you know the will of God you have attracted God's favor in a very real way into your life. John 15:7 if you abide or remain in me and my words abide or remain in you then you can ask/petition what ever you will and it shall be done. I say unto you the safest place in the entire world is in the the very center of the will God. Bishop Desmond Tutu I quote being in the will of God is like sitting in front of a fire in the winter you are just there in front of the fire. The fire warms you. Remember Romans 5:8 God demonstrates his own love for us in this: manner that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Gloryyyy!!!!! PTL-TYL Zachariah 4:6 not by my might not buy my power but by his spirit as God wills it says the Lord. As the Apostle Paul declare in Hebrews 13:21 not you but Christ working in you to will God pleasurable purpose to the hope of his very own God's glory. So remain diligently faithful, focused and you will always be more than a conqueror in Jesus Name!!! Hallelujah..
Devine Forgivness, Devine Health, Devine Redemption, Devine Crowns, Devine Satisfaction... in Psalm 103:1-5 we find all of the Devine Benefits of our salvation. WOW. Thank You Lord!!
There is so much here, I am thinking I might do a few blasts over the next few days, trust and pray these words will bless you as much as they have truly blessed me.
Forgiving all of our iniquities (meaning inward motivation and thoughts), and transgressions (meaning the the actual acts in sin).
How about this for a gift, a Devine Benefit. Isaiah 43:25 and Hebrews 8:12. He remembers our sins NO MORE. God is all knowing, so here He is saying He is Choosing to to totally and completely FORGET them. In otherwords, He doesn't have some huge file cabinet full of our iniquities and transgressions, so that each time we come to Him asking for forgiveness. .. He doesn't do what we do natually. Okay let's see, you did this 5x last week, and more than that just yesturday, and oh boy look at last month and so on. This is real. REAL forgiveness.
I'm sure we all know what we need to ask forgiveness for, yes we need to ask that is us being remorseful, but what about the people and things we need to forgive. Hummm, do you think the Lord wants us to have these file cabinets. Oh my goodness NO. Dont get me wrong, we need to forgive the action, the person, total forgiveness and healing from that come from when that person is remorseful and comes to ask to be forgiven. Until then, and maybe that is never, we must forgive and forgive again. Thank you Lord!
Remeber we are sheep right, so totally stupid animals, so think about it, someone has forgiven you and forgot about it, thankfully cuz you don't even remember or realize you did it. WOW right. Thank You Lord for you amazing Forgiveness, please bless me w the ability to Forgive and be Forgiven by others. In Jesus Name, Amen
Its okay to Ask God for confirmation, look to His Word, His Wisdom (Godly people), His way, His Principals, His People, His Peace, His Character, His Counsel …proverbs tells us that
If this helps, The Word says there are Three questions you can ask yourself if God has spoke to you; Does it line up with the Bible, the entire Bible, Seek Godly counsel, remember never contradicts itself, Do I have peace, always takes faith but there will never be fear
i. Colossians 3:16
ii. Philippians 4:7,
iii. Don't let the enemy put doubt
iv. Don't be afraid to say I don't have peace about this, there is NO room for Peir Presure in your walk w the Lord
“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Colossians 3:16-17 NIV
