the world says I have “complicated grief” but God says I have Jesus
if we rely on our own understanding or the world’s understanding, we fall short of the glory
I have only heard the audible words of God three times, four if you count that I heard the last words twice, for emphasis. If God says it, it will come to pass. I choose to trust God and not rely on my own understanding. I trust God over everything the world says, which has been pretty ugly, relying on their own understanding and those the deceived place their faith in as experts or authorities; flawed human beings who leave God out of the equation.
I trust God over what I see, feel or experience; I trust God over what others think they know. No Word of God fails to deliver and I surrendered myself a long time ago to God our Father, “Be it done unto me.” God brings us deeper to go higher.
I trust God. I choose to walk by faith, and not by sight. I do not rely on my own understanding but I rest in God as God works in me greater than I could ask or think. I testify to the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, the likeness of God. Jesus said if we see him we have seen the Father. I have seen the ascended, glorified Christ and when he said, “Come to Me, you who are weary and heavy-laden with burdens, and I will give you rest” I felt the fire in my belly and as it increased it rose like a flame and burst open my heart. Christ Jesus had to appear and speak to me because I was being deceived spiritually. Jesus said, “Blessed are those who do not see and yet believe” but I was one of those who had to have a powerful demonstration of Truth to turn from the destructive path I was on.
“The kingdom of God does not consist of talk but of Power”
The Words have blown my mind and taken me out of my “comfort zone” but God does not give you a Word without empowering you to become or perform it, therefore, I choose to say again, “Be it done unto me according to Your Word.” I turn away from the world and her experts, religious or secular, scientific or common sense, and step out again to the upward call in Christ and Christ in me, a new heaven and new earth where Christ is our righteousness, wisdom, sanctification, redemption, the glory within us, the fire surrounding us, to walk by faith not by sight into the new life of the new creatures of the new creation of the new covenant, singing the new song of the Lamb, new wine in new wineskin, wearing the new white wedding garment, the gold refined by fire within, the eye salve anointing allowing us to see spiritually; eating the Word as food; drinking the Spirit as water of life that never fails.
I surrender all to be led by the Spirit of God, daily, hourly, moment by moment…anew.
“I am the fire around you, the glory within you” Zechariah 2:5
In Christ, the fire of God is around you; Christ in you is the glory of God in you. Ask, expect, encounter and experience the Holy Spirit and fire. Take the yoke of Christ, learn from him, rest in him in God and let God work in you. Take the water of life without price; be led to the new promised land; don’t look at the giants but look at the fulfilled Promises of God. In Christ all the laws, prophesy and promises of God are fulfilled; Christ in you is His all in you.
Take Christ and Christ in you and run with it; the world will hate you, no one will understand you, including yourself, but God is greater than our understanding and we can rely on God completely, trusting in God, knowing heaven and earth pass away but the Word never passes away but is alive, active, living within, produces Christ Fruit of the Vine; a Sword of the Spirit to wield against the giants, cuts to all divisions, discerns the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…all things were made through him…In him is the light of life. The light shines in darkness, and darkness cannot overcome…the true light that enlightens that came over 2000 years ago…All who receive him, believe in his Name above every other name, he gives power to be children of God; not born of flesh…but born of God. The Word became flesh…and we can behold his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father…from His Fullness we receive grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ who makes the Father KNOWN” John 1:1-18
The Holy Spirit and fire make the Word flesh in those who come to Christ and let Christ come to live in us; the Spirit of God is sent to be with and in us because Jesus finished the work of the Cross, endured the Cross for the joy, the delight, the wisdom and power of God sent to live in us. So we take the glory Jesus gives us from the Father to become perfectly one with God: spirit and soul and body; not by ANYTHING we could ever do, but because of what the Father sent Jesus to do, we can come and TAKE without price the whole wonder-full, awe-filled, miraculous, glorious, gracious, noble, excellent, heavenly, new, powerful Gift of the mystery hidden for ages and generations in God, revealed by Christ through the Holy Spirit to his beloveds. Give all of you to take all of Christ.
“Be it done according to Your Word”
