God: really do call us…
2 Timothy 1:9 (KJV) “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,”
It is a powerful and mind blowing thing to consider a relationship with Jesus; but it is all so much more awesome to break down the fact that He called us to be a part of His life and know that He wants us as His own.
Ownership: belonging and fellowship; He gives us all of this and more when He calls us and we accept the call.
Here is to Him calling and to us responding and receiving that CALL.
To the only wise God, be all the glory.
God:captures us for protection….
Psalms 27:5 (KJV) “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.”
In my mind, I am just remembering the times that this phenomenon has occurred in my life and I never really paid attention until it literally came to me that I was protected and the one doing it was supernatural.
Chaos will be going on in your life and you think that it ought to have affected you at a deeper level; but it just passes by without affecting you to the extent possible. And you get to wondering why it passed you by.
You might also be in a place where many face destruction, yet you walk away unscathed and you get to wondering again.
Yes, the God of heaven, in His mercy and grace highlighted and captures us to protect us.
His actions creates amazement in our lives; what a wonderful Father.
God: will keep you….
2 Thessalonians 3:3-5 (KJV) “But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.”
The easiest thing we can do as individuals is doubt ourselves; we believe that in all things, there will be an obstacle that will prevent us from accomplishing what we need to in this life.
That there will be someone or something that will appear from the left field and stand before that which we are trying to attain.
Contrary to this belief, many times we have to go through processes to accomplish the desires of our hearts and it may not be easy, but God has promised to be with us all the way.
If we have this promise, remember that He who promise, is faithful to establish His word and will watch over His word through fulfillment.
God will fulfill that which He has started in your life.
God: worthy of all love…
I love the Lord, He always hears my cries….I cry a lot to Him…
Love Him with your entire heart….
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) ““For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”
Sometimes we get into debates and arguments about what we think or believe is the true method of doing things, in all actuality, when we listen to our hearts even as the Spirit of God speaks to us, it becomes so much clearer on the direction we need to take.
God does speak to our hearts; listen to your heart as He instructs us in the way to go.
When He speaks, it is because He loves and is looking out for our best interest.
God:knows all about us…
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (KJV) “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
Whenever we are known by someone of importance and they acknowledge that relationship in a public manner, it really brings about a feeling of joy to our hearts. In our relationship with God, for us it is no different when in the midst of toiling and doing life, He acknowledges us and reach out to help us.
The thing with God is that He loves us so much that it delights Him to complete the things which pertains to us.
When He calls you friend, he is the best friend you will ever get in this life. Trusting that He has got your back is the most earnest thing you can ever do in this life. Trust that He has got your back.
God: has already declared the prize….
Philippians 3:14 (KJV) “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
In this life we strive for many things; for some of them, it isn’t a guarantee that we will win when we pursue after them but it doesn’t necessarily stop us from our actions. Our aim is to win at any cost.
Same with our salvation: the fight and the struggle to get beyond the attacks we come under is priceless.
We already know what we will gain in this fight, the struggle in being steadfast is remembering daily and coming to the understanding that we are valuable.
