Thank you Father for the Way, the Truth, and the Life! You sent the Way when there was no way for human beings to get to you Father. You sent the Truth so we could know you God, not the lies and deception of religion, oppressive governments, and the enemy of our souls who will do anything to keep human beings from being who God made us to be, and what the deceiver can never be for trying to steal, kill and destroy everything God has provided for his human creation. Thank you Father for the Life you sent to destroy the “deadness” of being separated from God; the emptiness of being separated from our soul (heart, mind and will) and the lifelessness of being separated from your Spirit, who brings the light of life, pure love of our First Love, true holiness and righteousness to live as you designed human beings to live in your image and likeness.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life of God; the only way to be reunited and reconnected with our Father, reborn of God.
I am not going to lie, I have been really struggling with the loss of my husband and the aftermath of the adversaries who came to steal, kill and destroy all that is true and good and right. Complex grief is likened to a tangled ball of yarn; unraveling it is complicated. Those who turned on me out of greed, covet-ness, ignorance of the ways of God, lust of the eyes, pride, selfishness, and not knowing God or his glory at all, will have to account for their words and actions before our God.
I have been clinging to the Word of God because it is the only thing that can give us the Way, the Truth and the Life that God intended for us. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter sent to those who grieve; our Living Hope who brings fulfilled promises so we do not have to make our heart sick through deferred hope; our Living Faith as Holy Spirit dissolves spots of darkness and forms Christ, not a bandaid, but when we are still and know in the glory, he transforms and transfigures and reforms until we are reformed into Christ-likeness. Apart from God we can do nothing.
The Holy Bible has the Words of Jesus and those inspired by the Holy Spirit. The new covenant is possible with glorified Jesus, even with so many pushing back to the old; so many trying to push humanity back before the Cross of Jesus who overcame the world for us; is Victorious on our behalf to give us the Victory when we come to Christ and unite our soul to Christ, and learn from Christ, and begin to rest in God and let the Holy Spirit work in and through us.
The High Priest prays and intercedes for us from heaven to earth; the Holy Spirit prays and intercedes within us from heaven to earth when we have received and enthroned Christ in our heart.
When we come to greater understanding and knowledge of God and his glory, the father of lies, the deceiver, the destroyer, the adversary, the enemy of our soul does increase his attacks and the thief does come to steal, kill and destroy, but God our Father is greater and “he who is in us is greater than he who is in this world.” Yes, we fall, but the righteous get up seven times (seven is the number of spiritual completion). Yes, we fall short of the glory, but God is trustworthy and true and his Word is faithful and true, righteous in his judgments, a sharp Sword of the Spirit that leads holy angel armies to hearken to his Word and perform his Word.
When Jesus is in your heart, the battle ground is in your mind and will; twisted thinking is of satan; listening and obeying the distorted thinking is not the will of God. Only deliberate, spiritual intention can keep you focused on what Jesus has done, not what people have done. Sometimes all you can do is be alone with God because only our Father knows everything we have been through, past, present and future; the only really truly safe place on this earth is in Christ and Christ in you; my Rock, my Anchor.
Yes, people have hurt me more than I could ever speak, from the womb to this present day, but God is Faithful and True. God our Father is the greatest protection and provision, and supplies all our needs; including vindication, recompense, and restoration of all that has been taken.
