In the Kingdom of God, we influence people with His joy, peace and love like yeast that permeates every part of the dough. We brighten someone’s path with the LIGHT OF JESUS shining brightly in and through us. We add flavor into the lives of those around us like salt.
We are not called to control and dominate but we are to be a people of great influence. As I mentioned earlier about the yeast, light and salt, they all don’t control but they powerfully influence.
We are to be carriers of His love that when He touches those around us through us, they will taste and see that He is GOOD! It is His goodness that changes the way we think about Him and the way we think about ourselves on how He see us. Always remember that He sees us beautiful, with the moral grandeurs and excellencies of Jesus Christ. His eyes are filtered by the Blood of Jesus. How He sees Jesus as His beloved is how He sees us as His beloveds. Nothing different!
When we hear the good news of the finished work of Jesus Christ MIXED with our faith, we profit from it. Believing what we hear always causes us to experientially see His promises. So, today, when we hear His voice, why harden our hearts? When we know that God is all committed to our good, let go of our human reasoning and get into having a child like faith believing that WHAT HE SAYS, SURELY HE WILL DO!
“God is NOT a man, so He DOES NOT lie. He is not human, so He does not change His mind. Has He ever spoken and failed to act? Has He ever promised and not carried it through?” Numbers 23:19 NLT
Knowledge is power. What we know always adds to our confidence on how we approach God the way He desires to be approached, like our Daddy. He loves that! He is desperate to be believed that HE IS LOVE and that HE LOVES US!
“Let us therefore COME BOLDLY to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help IN TIME OF NEED.” Hebrews 4:16
Life is short and we all have daily needs. Why not come boldly into His throne, into His presence where He is passionately waiting for you and me? SURELY it will be His utmost delight when we switch our awareness from our needs unto HIM. When we do that, when He becomes our delight, when we see His face, when we hear His voice, when we hear His heartbeat, it will position us to confidently know that He will provide for all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus ALL BECAUSE HE CARES FOR US AND HE LOVES US.
Thank You, JESUS …
