There is no high like the Most High

May we stop giving into temporary fleshly fixes. Our birthright is to have all that the Spirit has to give us. We have been given freedom, and whom the Son sets free is free indeed. May we not become entangled with the flesh and all it demands. True faith in Christ Jesus will establish His grace in us, which will work in us to will and do His good pleasure. May we stop placing our self in bondage to sin. May we be sensitive to the voice of our Shepherd, for He will lead us and guide us, He will tell us which way to go, what to do or not to do. May we listen to the voice of Truth and not the voice of lies. The enemy is a master manipulator that flatters with his words and knows how to speak to the longings of our flesh. The person who wants to be somebody, be recognized, given position can be easily enticed/deceived by the enemy. The enemy will use people to give us what we desire, which may not be God's will for us. Like Esau we can become hungry, weary, and desirous to have a longing ache filled. Somebody may come along who has the power to give us what we think we want or even need, and we will receive his offer only to realize that it did not reach the depths of our soul and bring completeness, it only satisfied for a time, and now we find ourselves discontented and in wanting once again. The void within remains. That nagging feeling is still there, and now we find ourselves paying consequences for our temporary fix. We now wonder to and fro just as Esau did, discontent, no place to find peace. We may feel angry, hurt and even bitter all because of a momentary fleshly fix. The Word of God reads that if we walk in the Spirit we will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. The Grace of God empowers us to do this. The Spirit of God in us is greater than this flesh. He that is within us is greater than he that is within the world. How do we rise above this flesh and walk in the Spirit? First one must believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, repent of sin and ask the Lord Jesus to come and make His home within them and become Lord and Savior of their life. When one does this, he will become born again. He becomes a new creation, old things are past away and all things have become new. Jesus said that He is the Way the Truth and the Life and no man can come to the Father except through Him. Jesus so loved us that He gave His life for us, He died for us, He took our place and died for our sins so that we don't have to die, we just go from this life to the next to live eternally with our God, our Creator, our Lord and Savior who loves us more than anyone. When one is born again the Holy Spirit comes to lead and guide that person into all truth and freedom. Now it is up to the person to listen to the Spirit and what He says. We do this by feeding ourselves the Word of God and speaking His Word then our faith grows and the power of Holy Spirit strengthens us to be overcomers and more than conquerors. As we begin to obey the voice of Holy Spirit instead of listening to the flesh the enemy must flee. Submit to God resist the devil and he will flee from you. The Word of God says that it is in Him/Jesus that we live and move and have our being. And it is Jesus who works in us the ability to walk in freedom and not be a slave to sin. If we give place to Holy Spirit and His leading, we will find that the void and longings of the flesh have no power over us any longer. We are no longer in bondage to our flesh and all it demands. The flesh is now under submission to the Spirit. Temporary fixes no longer tempt us. Anger, sorrow, bitterness, acceptance by others, recognition, rewards, worry, addictions, etc. All the desires of the flesh no longer rule us, we are not its slave any longer. For we have been set free! We have now discovered that there is no high like the Most High, and He is not a temporary fix but an eternal one!

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…

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…

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…
