TRUST GOD; FEAR FLEES

Posted on March 22, 2022 at 6:25 AM


  

A new year. . . a new season has begun. For this year I desire a closer walk with You, my Lord. My Lord and my God, I lift You up and call You LORD! Bowing down to You, giving myself heart and soul to You. I so want to be all You created me to be!

This morning I sit drinking my coco/coffee (yeah, put a little dark cocoa in my coffee YUM) as I enjoy it, I pursue the Lord, and He guides me to a Scripture. I love it, because it reminds me how much my Abba loves me:


1 John 5:1-16

The Proof of Love and the Victory of Faith

1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Messiah is God’s spiritual child and has been fathered by God Himself. How wonderful, Abba, to know You are my Father, and You love me as Your beloved child! My life is a light that reflects You; please my precious Abba, let that statement be ever truer day by day!

And everyone who loves Father God loves his children as well. 2 This is how we can be sure that we love the children of God: by having a passionate love for God and by obedience to his commands. 3 True love for God means obeying his commands, and His commands don’t weigh us down as heavy burdens.[a]

4 You see, every child of God overcomes [b] the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world. 5 So who are the world conquerors, defeating its power? Those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. 5:3 God’s grace empowers us to love, which makes his commands a delight instead of a duty. The spontaneity of love is never crushed by the commands of a loving God. 5:4 The Greek verb tense indicates continuous action, “continually conquers the world” (system).


AMP 5:5  Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he/she who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact]?

 

 

This new year of 2022 is going to be a challenge. We can see that already with the way our government is causing our prices to raise in every area. I am appalled as my bills rise exponentially. This inflation will make some people wealthy, but bring much hurt to many others. Poverty will escalate, possibly it homelessness..

 

So how are we to handle this? Knowing we serve a God who truly loves us and is powerful helps a lot. You see none of this is a surprise to God. He knows satan is after His children and is trying to discourage us and blame God for it; but God has a plan for each of us, and it’s a good one. Just look at what He promises His kids:

 

 Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.


 To us 'the unknown'  is a bit frightening; but when we have a close relationship with our mighty God, and we know His character, that He is a good God and He loves us, fear is chased away!

 

My friends, allow nothing to frighten you; for fear is a tool of the devil. Rather be confident in the Lord of Creation, whose Son, Jesus, died for our sin to cleanse us and bring righteousness into our nature, so that we actually become new creations, new people, truly children of God. And God knows how to take care of His kids; so we trust our lives to Him. The solution to the unknown future is to come to know God intimately, know His goodness and His love for you, then you can trust your life confidently to Him without being afraid.

I and also my buddies appeared to be analyzing the nice guides located on your web page and so the sudden I got a horrible feeling I never thanked the website owner for those techniques. Most of the guys were definitely for that reason stimulated to read them and have extremely been enjoying them. Appreciation for simply being so accommodating as well as for considering these kinds of impressive subjects most people are really eager to be informed on. My sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.

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.
