THE REBELLIOUS SOUL

Posted on November 3, 2021 at 5:00 AM




  

Sometimes I come to know that a radical decision is necessary! It will be a deep choice that seems foreign to today’s society. However,  if one is radical in making a commitment for Christ, it can be a mystery to others, but I have chosen today to take that step.


 

2 Corinthians 4:9-12 (The Message) If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That's to prevent anyone from confusing God's incomparable power with us. As it is, there's not much chance of that.

You know for yourselves that we're not much to look at. We've been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we're not demoralized; we're not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we've been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn't left our side; we've been thrown down, but we haven't broken.

What they did to Jesus, they do to us—trial and torture, mockery and murder; what Jesus did among them, He does in us—He lives! Our lives are at constant risk for Jesus' sake, which makes Jesus' life all the more evident in us. While we're going through the worst, you're getting in on the best!



Galatians 2:20 (Amplified Bible) I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.


                                                                              

 

You Holy Spirit inhabit this body. I do submit it and all its thoughts, its actions its focus to You, Jesus. You run this body like a machine that You own; You activate it to Your purposes to give glory to the Father. You did that on earth when You lived here Jesus; You finished the work God gave You to do, and that brought glory to the Father. Bring my life to give glory to the Father by fulfilling the purpose He put in me.

 

Galatians 2:20 (The Message)

19-21What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn't work. So I quit being a "law man" so that I could be God's man. Christ's life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with Him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central.



It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not "mine," but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.


I am not going to go back on that. Yes, Christ lives in me. My ego is no longer important. I do not live by what others think of me. I am no longer driven to impress anyone, except to impress Your truth to them Father  ~ that You love them dearly and they are so precious to You!


What i see in this Scripture is that Jesus wants all of me. I want all of Him, and for that to happen . . .

He does not want some of me, that is, what I choose to give up to Him. He wants all of me. That sacrifice of my body is giving all of me to Him. THAT “ME” WAS INDEED CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST. WHEN HE AROSE, I AROSE WITH HIM ~~ IN ME.



MY EGO IS NO LONGER CENTRAL. MY LIFE IS NOT MINE. HOLY SPIRIT COME TAKE OVER MY LIFE TOTALLY. THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT. He says, “. I have not come to give you any blessing at all. You will find all that you need in Jesus. But I have come to put you to the cross, so that I may live in your body for the sake of a lost world.


OK. Put my ego, my will to the cross, so it is YOU who directs all I say, do and believe. My ego must die, so You can fully live in me. Your will be done, not mine. I choose this. Help me HOLY SPIRIT. Without You this would not be possible. I give You permission to . . . do what . . . ???

                 


                                                                                       


I will not make this decision blindly, ignorantly, without understanding of what is called upon. But I can make a decision based on trust in You. I know  You will keep me in Your truth, I choose to submit my self totally to You. I give You permission to do Your will in me. I require Your grace. I trust You will provide it.

AMEN



It is a revolutionary concept in this day and age, but I am choosing to be that rebel who is willing to give-it-all to my Lord and my God. Perhaps some few will join me, but the world has fallen so far into the immoral pit I’m sure not many will choose to be this utterly given over to Christ. Hoping I am wrong. Are you one?

I have to express some thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of challenge. Because of looking out through the the net and coming across ideas which were not powerful, I thought my entire life was over. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the issues you've fixed by way of this report is a critical case, and the kind that could have negatively affected my entire career if I had not encountered your website. The understanding and kindness in maneuvering almost everything was important. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't come upon such a solution like this. It's possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the professional and result oriented guide. I won't think twice to refer your web sites to any person who should get direction on this topic.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
