Boldly Come Before God

IMG_2511

“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 NKJV)

Why BOLDLY?  Because in the New Covenant, we have a GREAT HIGH PRIEST, JESUS CHRIST, who was in ALL POINTS tempted as we are, yet WITHOUT SIN (Hebrews 4:15).  We only don’t have a GREAT High Priest but a High Priest FOREVER (Hebrews 5:6).

When We Say YES To God

IMG_1618

No one knows what our day will be like the very moment we open our eyes but thank God that HE is an Omniscient God Who knows all things.  “He knows when we sit and when we arise; He perceives our thoughts from afar.” (Psalm 139:2)  Yes, we start with this declaration, “This IS the day that the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 NKJV)  Yes, we believe that if HE made the day, then it must be GOOD!  Nothing comes out of HIM that HE IS NOT and because our God is GOOD, then only GOOD things come out of HIM.  Our knowledge of His goodness causes us to have a confident and joyful expectation for our day to be good.

I love how the Message translation says it, “This is the very day God acted— let’s celebrate and be festive!

Jesus Is Lord

IMG_0881

The definition of the word “LORD” means supreme master, ruler, leader, chief, superior, monarch, sovereign, king, emperor, prince, governor, commander.  Jesus is the Lord of lords and that denotes One who possesses absolute control by the power of His love, the LORD over all.

His LORDSHIP can never be fully expressed in the limitations of our words but it can surely be personally experienced with one’s spirit that is open for Him to invade and possess, a heart that is fully yielded revering Him to make His home in it.

Driven vs Led

IMG_0820

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God (Romans 8:14 NKJV).

What does it mean to be LED?  One simple description of being led is that there is Someone before us LEADING and we follow.  To be led in this age and time is like having a GPS that directs us and our part is to listen and obey with ease trusting the GPS’s voice to take us to our set destination.

The Lord is not into driving our lives for He has given us our free will to choose which way to go, but the GOOD NEWS is, He has given us Holy Spirit, the present day Godhead Who is resident in our hearts, to guide us into all truth and silence the voice of deception around us.  His continual presence transforms us in ways and means that only He can do all because only He knows us inside out.  The light of His love illuminates within us exposing everything unnecessary at a given time that doesn’t bring Him pleasure and transforms us to be Who He created us to be when we open every part of us to Him and allow His love to seep into the inner recesses of our being.

So Loved

IMG_0713

God SO LOVED you and me that He sent Jesus that we may have and enjoy life.
I just read a post that brought a fresh revelation to me today. “Jesus fasted heaven for 33 1/2 years to get to us so that He could dwell in and rest upon His people through daily communion and unbroken, unhindered fellowship for eternity.  The price that heaven paid for us determines our value.” (Georgian Banov)

He Is My Portion

IMG_0536

Do you know that our identity fuels our generosity?  When we truly know who we are IN CHRIST and Who He is to us, we will not be afraid to give confidently.  It is not just in giving something from our hands but more so giving of ourselves knowing that each one of us is a piece of a puzzle.  That piece that is so uniquely cut which perfectly fits only where God intends us to be when we are fully yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
