“Pour out all your worries and stress upon HIM and LEAVE THEM THERE, for HE always tenderly cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7 TPT)
The Lord is always up to doing something NEW and we are to posture ourselves to catch what He is speaking, doing and demonstrating.
We focus not on the past but cast them all into His hands for it is only in Him where our messes become messages and our tests become testimonies. In Christ alone is where LIFE is found. The blessings of the Lord makes one rich and He adds no sorrow with it.
Yes, we learn from our past experiences but we do not pitch our tent there. The Lord is always on the move, waiting, expecting, looking and longing to pour His blessings upon us and if we posture ourselves not according to the frequency of where He is speaking and moving, we miss out a lot. His presence is always present in the present. Faith is NOW! And when He speaks, He is ready to move.
We look forward to the future with a confident expectation of His goodness that is about to be displayed and demonstrated before us. He promised that He will make ALL His goodness pass before us and declare the name of the Lord everytime.
We worry not of what is to come for the Lord has already gone before us. We may not know what our future holds but we confidently and joyfully know Who holds our future and He declared it GOOD!
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father execpt through Him. Only when we acknowledge and believe that He is the Son of the Living God can we be born of God, having the LIGHT of revelation that God is our Father and we are His sons and daughters. Apart from Jesus Christ, God will only be made known to be God, without us having access to the the open door of intimate relationship with Him where fruitfulness flows.
Come to think of it, in this world that we live in, a father can only be recognized as a father if he has a son. Without a son, he cannot be called a father. It is in the same manner why Jesus came and it is to reveal the Father so that you and I can enter into sonship by the power of the shed blood of Jesus Christ at the cross and can be powerfully experienced by our fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
Why not begin this NEW year with a NEW mindset in believing Who Jesus is, the Son of the Living God?
“And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as He rises up within us, our spirits join Him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!” Romans 8:15-16 TPT)
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing to us Jesus Christ Who is Your Son, so that we who believe in Him may be grafted into Your family where zoe life flows that runs through eternity. Jesus, thank You, for leaving the heavenly glory realms for a season to walk with us and ultimately become the perfect sacrifice for our absolute redemption. Only in You is where love, peace and joy are found. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for revealing to us the truth of our true identity that we are truly destined to be sons and daughters of the Most High God and that is who we are. Amen!
