Climb into the hand of God

Will you climb into His hand today and trust Him. God longs to hold you safely in His hands. There you will find rest for yourself. I was listening to a sermon last night and he was saying that if you are not resting you are not trusting. I was thinking about that and just how true of a statement that is.

I of course had to learn that the hard way. Like so many of us if we would of only trusted God to begin with we could of saved ourselves so much heart-ache and pain. Not to mention sickness that would come into our bodies because of worry and stress and not trusting God to take care of things. Part of entering into God's rest is receiving the Kingdom of God into our lives. Which by the way God longs to give His children the Kingdom. Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom! (Lk. 10:32 Amp.) Don't confuse the Kingdom of Heaven with the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is here and now and within us. Jesus says that the Kingdom of God is within you (Lk. 17:21). The Kingdom of God is not meat or drink but it is Peace, Joy and righteousness in the Holy Ghost (Rom. 14:17)

The goal of the enemy is to rob you of the Kingdom of God. If He can rob you of your Peace, Joy or Righteousness which comes to us by the Power of the Holy Spirit in us than he can rob us of the Kingdom of God. Without the Kingdom of God ( the power of the Holy Spirit ) at work in us we can accomplish nothing for the glory of God and for the advancing of His Kingdom.

The Disciples went forth proclaiming that the Kingdom of God is at hand and they healed the sick and cast out demons and brought freedom, peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Ghost every where that they went. We are to do the very same thing. It didn't end with the disciples it began with them.

When I look back at the times that I just couldn't rest in the care of God's hands and was worrying about everything I didn't realize it at the time but I was telling God with my actions that He couldn't be trusted. How ashamed I was at myself when I got that revelation from the Spirit God. After all that Jesus had done for me in showing His love for me, here I was neglecting to thank Him for His faithfulness and trust Him for today. I was allowing the enemy to rob me of my peace and joy and thus I was allowing him to rob me of the Kingdom of God.
The enemy had me right where he wanted me. I was destroying myself and doing no good for anybody else either. What a lousy witness I was to others.

But I praise God for answers to my prayers. I said, "Lord I desire your peace and joy once again in my life." How do I attain it? He just simply and lovingly said: "Begin trusting me once again. Climb back into my hands and allow me to take care of everything." How relieved I was to find that place of peace once again in the hands of my Lord. There is no better place to be than in the safety of God's hands. Jesus said: "My father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand" (Jn. 10:29). No man can pluck us out of the hands of God. But we can choose to climb out of His hands or climb in. I don't know about you, but in His hands is where I belong and where I want to stay.

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
