God:makes provisions for His own…
Exodus 12:13-14 (KJV) “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
Sometimes we put ourselves in the way of harm and in all honesty, the only outcome should be death, yet as if something out of this world occurs, we miss it; alive to fight another day.
It’s not magic, but it’s the power of God and Him putting things into perspective to protect His people.
God’s method of loving comes with all types of inclusive benefits, even providing an unlimited source of blood as a resource of trust, remembrance for His people.
God: comprehensive in actions…
Isaiah 11:2 (KJV) “And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;”
When Jesus promised that His Father would send a Comforter to replace Him, I think no one could fathom how it would work out and understand the level of work He was going to accomplish in this world and the one to come.
But just to look into our lives and see the work He has accomplished through the name of Jesus Christ just about blows one away.
Thanks be to God who first sent His Son and then His Spirit to work upon us and lead us into a positive path. All praises and glory be to God for his precise and complete salvation plan.
God: rules in there also…
Psalms 48:1-3 (KJV) “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. God is known in her palaces for a refuge.”
For those of you who get into that deep place of worship; the place where you meditate and the presence of God just flows over you and it’s understandable that He just stole the atmosphere.
Some of you know that place: it is where weeping takes place; where self flees and adoration for our King is surrounding us and the only thought we can rationalize.
He consumes our thoughts and it is no shame because God Almighty has taken over and it is all about Him. I love that place.
God: hides sometimes….
Isaiah 55:6-8 (KJV) “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”
IT might not seem possible, and what we have to go by is the directives in the word of God, but a time is coming when we will have face up to our maker and answer questions of the things we have done with our lives.
We live in the now, and we have the choice of having a relationship with Jesus, our Savior. Some might choose not to and some of us may decide to do so; ultimately, this choice will a ticket to where we head in eternity.
Jesus is the key and He offers us the choice to know Him today…
God: gave us His name…
Psalm 25:1-2 (KJV) “Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.”
Romans 8 tells us about a special kind of depth in prayer that many of us have experience, but maybe do not have an understanding of what is happening: groaning in the spirit.
Sometimes, it just comes out of us and we believe it must be our own spirit crying out or travailing when in actuality, the Spirit of God maketh intercession through our bodies for some situation.
We tend to claim situations that is happening before our faces, but sometimes it because you just got used by the Father….
When the earnest crying builds up within us, many times we can only cry, “Oh Lord”. I know many of us have felt it, the deep bitter cry within that only eases after a scream….
Yes, God at work.
Genesis 2:7 (KJV) “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. “
When God created man, for the process to be activated man needed that special entity which was the breath of God to be mobile and active; when this was done, man became a moving being.
Today in our spiritual walk, we are not alive outside a relationship with Christ; we are but empty shells, walking about incomplete. But when we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we enter into a new realm that will activate a life where we can serve our Father in Spirit and truth.
The wind of God is needed in our lives to propel into that place of rest with our Lord.
May God be gracious to us to receive and live in that place where He sustains us in all we do…
God: gave us the key…
John 14:13-14 (KJV) “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
For me right now, my thoughts on Jesus granting us permission to utilize His name to activate blessings in our life is plain acceptance; it doesn’t make any sense to attempt to analyze it especially if you have an analytical personality and need to know why things occur.
Jesus gave us an instruction and for our benefit, we can’t question or rationalize why it is so, we just have to “do it”.
The telling and trust in Him comes when things just happen after a while. This most naturally increases our faith and belief in who He is and what He has said.
Use the name…
