God’s Wisdom ~ Alive To Me

Alive To Me

Walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.  Ephesians 5:2

Be diligent to explore and experience my death and resurrection.  Enter in fully to the journey of my crucifixion, burial, and victory over death.  Why?  Because in any ways this earth has defined you, you are now dead to them and alive to me.

I created every part of you.  All your gifts.  All your bents.  Though people may have ridiculed and rejected a part of who you are, I have celebrated it.  You are my masterpiece and I indwell you.  All of you.

To be fully alive to me is to allow me to live through every bent of my design.  This will take courage but there is no fear when you learn to live in my love.  You may not always be popular but you will be filled with my glory if you submit your whole self to me in obedience.  This will bring you joy unspeakable and breed a confidence no man can shake.  Step out of the tomb into the light of resurrection life.

God’s Wisdom ~ Whose Words Are Affecting You?

What is it that pulls at your heart today?  Whatever it is will most likely be forgotten down the road.  All that will be remembered are my touches upon you in your time of need.  Never allow anything other my Word to be written deeply in you.  People around you will be ambitious with their pen, aggressive with their mouth.  Words will be plentiful but not life-giving.  You have learned this the hard way.  You’ve clung to false words and ended up in the desert because of it.  My words bring life and joy.  My touch brings healing.  My truths bring relief.  My correction brings security.  My teaching brings confidence.  Can you not see the difference between good and bad words now?

This is the time to walk in maturity, not tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine, every word that proceeds out of the mouth of men.

God’s Wisdom ~ Give Up What’s Good for What’s Best

GIVE UP WHAT’S GOOD FOR WHAT’S BEST

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.  Hebrews 12:1

Learn to obey Me in difficult matters.  This will result in My blessing being poured out upon your life.  Allow Me to prune everything that holds you back.  Though there are losses, what you gain will outweigh the sacrifices.

Obedience puts you out of step with a church that is falling away in the great deception.  You make decisions others don’t understand.  When they say something is acceptable, you walk away.  When they don’t give something a second thought, you abstain.  With the growing darkness, it will be natural to cling to anything that numbs out the pain but that will also dull your appetite for Me.  Stay awake.  Cling to Me as things decline.

Salvation will come and You will finally see My face and step into your inheritance.  Child, the goal is in sight.  As you run the race today, I am preparing your eternity.  It’s that close.

 

God’s Wisdom ~ No Longer Refused

No Longer Refused

All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.  John 6:37

Cast out ~ To expel a person from society, to banish from a family

************

You know the pain of reaching out and of being refused; extending your arms only to be turned away.  Don’t allow the memories of that to keep you from experiencing Me.  I heal all former rejections, every single one.  No widow need be without a Husband.  No orphan without a Father.  No spouse without a Lover.

When you live in Me and dare to believe that all I have and all I am is yours, you will find a joy unspeakable.  I won’t turn My back on you when you seek Me.  If you come, I will be found.   If you reach, I will embrace.  So need Me courageously.  I won’t disappoint you.  Trust Me even though it may feel reckless when weighed against past experience.  I’m different.  I won’t cast you out.

 

God’s Wisdom ~ Prepare Your Answers

GOD’S WISDOM ~ “STAND FIRM”

My steadfast love I will keep for him forever, and my covenant will stand firm for him.  Psalm 89:28

Consider your feet.  Upon whose word are you standing?  In life, you will be asked many questions.

Who are you?  Why do you believe that?  What possible reason would cause you to think that?  Do you really believe you’re making a wise decision?

You can plant your feet on many kinds of turf.  Convenient answers.  Popular answers.  Evasive answers.  But none will be solid ground. These are the times you must dig your heels into the soil of my kingdom.  Feel the earth settle around your shoes.  Each time you give an answer that is Spirit founded, your way will be marked with a security that comes from walking in the light of My favor.  Your words may sound incredulous to others, even gain you great unpopularity, but you will know the peace of Jesus as He modeled solid theology and spoke truthful words all the way to the cross.

 

God’s Wisdom ~ Lose Yourself In Me

God’s Wisdom ~Lose Yourself In Me 

Those who try to gain their own life will lose it; but those who lose their life for my sake will gain it.  Matthew 10:39

Lose yourself in Me.  Do it until the edges of you become blurred in the essence of who I am.  When you can no longer tell what is your mind and what is My mind, your thought and My thoughts, your sympathies and My sympathies, your passions and My passions, then you are on the right track.  This is the kind of spiritual unity My Son talked about.

Remember that Jesus prayed, “Let them be one as we are one.”  Know that this is the culmination of your spiritual journey.  Most importantly, this is a preview of the consummation of our marriage.

How much am I on your mind?  You are always on Mine.
