‘If ye love me, keep my commandments.’ John 14:15

Through a “work mindset:”  a wave of uncertainty rushes through your being along with panic stricken thoughts of how you have more to do; along with an overwhelming sense of not being able to ever “get there” as a list of where you have fallen short counts off; not to mention the added arrows of wrongly thinking you have to do this or that to receive His love, you have to do so much better, and so much more. You continuously think of how much more you have to do.

‘If ye love me, keep my commandments.’ John 14:15

Through a Grace mindset:  your heart excitedly beats, what a confirmation that you are actively living in Jesus!! Your desire to be more aware of Jesus than anything else strengthens because you are confident in knowing that your Shepherd will intimately reveal what needs done in every given moment, He helps you to keep those commandments. The more you think on those beautiful Words, John 14:15, your heart swells as a thought of how much you love your Abba flows through your being as well as the amazing truth as to why those commandments are in place. They reveal how perfectly good He is, along with His strong desire to have you actively experience Him in miraculous ways. We are weak, and only He is strong and we need Him in order to live! And  your mind looks back on how the Holy Spirit’s Divine instruction perfectly teaches you, and you now intimately know that only He can strictly keep you in obedience to your Abba’s commandments, because you have painfully realized that your Abba loves you more than anyone else ever could and only His will is acceptable in your life. His commandments are wonderfully present, manifesting His reign from the spiritual world into the physical world. He alone is your Creator and knows what you have need of.

See the world of difference in the two? I’m sure you are experiencing the difference in the response of your emotions and feelings as well. Our personal obedience to His commandments strengthens as a result of actively living in Jesus, moment by moment, as you deeply fall in-love with Him and you intimately learn, during so many different experiences, how only He knows exactly what you need. While we actively embrace the healing ointment our loving Savior continuously coats us in, by actively embracing our Creator’s Divine network, we are stating that His Network means more to us than anything else in the flesh.  Accepting the Bible in its entirety, your Shepherd has led you to operate in a grace mindset: A healed and balanced mind by the Holy Spirit is so precious to behold! Praise Jesus!!

Only as Jesus actively reigns in an overcomer’s life, can they overcome sin…

Overcoming sin has nothing to do with being perfect, that should never be in question, because there is no possibility of that ever happening. However, an understanding that there are sins you normally wouldn’t recognize as sins is very important. And as you, as a lifestyle, moment by moment, choose to be more aware of Jesus than anything else, you are able to hear the Holy Spirit’s utterances in recognizing a sin for what it is. Some of them are hard to digest, and with your deepening relationship with Jesus, stripped down bare and to the point- a sin can be as simple has turning away from Jesus, doing what He has not led you to do, although in the flesh it may seem like the right thing to do; or even not handling an issue as He is leading you to. Have you ever considered the possibility of what society views as acting sympathetically as being a sin? Yes, it can be that hard to recognize and digest, and it can be another clear “eye-opener” in regards to you not knowing how to truly live, requiring you to live only how your Shepherd intimately guides you to, moment by moment. Which then simplifies your moments. And as you automatically deal with whatever the Holy Spirit is instructing you on as being a sin, it becomes evidence of His actively reigning existence, and a humbling, balancing tool reminding us who, alone, is perfect, and that our righteousness can only come from Him. There is no place, nor time, nor need for self-condemnation when we actively live under His Sovereign reign, and only by actively living in Him can we effectively and powerfully overcome sin. All because of our Sacrificial Lamb, our Jesus’ conquering sacrifice on the beloved cross can we handle sin effectively and appropriately with Him! Praise Jesus, through Christ all things are possible!!

Only our Abba can rebuild the destruction with a renewal in abundance…

Destruction is all around us, and as time goes by, we see it intensifying. However, despite the rising existence of destruction, our Abba rebuilds it with renewal. And it is a renewal, in abundance. How do we see it? How do we experience it? And how do we intimately know it? Well, the actual existence of this world and what it leads us to, which is an eternity with Him uniquely confirms that in a profound way. However, there is an even more powerful, intimate way we know this, because we look above the waste and destruction by inwardly gazing upon our Savior, and with each piece of destruction we physically encounter, we are reminded of the dire need for Jesus. It is by His strength that we are able to continue recognizing the hope in what our physical eyes and ears see and hear as hopeless. Our lives have become something not normally known, the Holy Spirit has established Himself as the breath we breathe, and we move forward because our Shepherd moved forward, we spoke because the Holy Spirit gave us the voice to speak in the moment thereof for the moment therein, we hear the corrections the Holy Spirit has intimately replaced from what has been heard and learned, and we think what the Holy Spirit intimately divides between truth, fact and fiction. And it is only through our growing obedience to Abba that we are able to even digest God’s strong meat of Truth. In short, Jesus needs to always be more real to you than the destruction and struggles, because spiritually and physically, only our Abba, the Great I Am, can rebuild the destruction with a renewal in abundance.

His active reign is revealed when we obediently accept the simplicity of a moment…

Despite our choice and daily exercises in developing a stronger mindset to be more aware of Jesus than anything else, our earthy, limited minds will still sometimes strive to see the process that will produce desirable results. Especially for things that have been a long time, even years, in the making. It has been a fortifying journey in obedience, and after all we have been through, where each step and move has sometimes been a struggle, we hear from the Lord more clearly now and as a result, we self-discipline ourselves to not try and figure it all out. Reminding ourselves that the Lord will reveal that which needs to be revealed when it needs to be revealed. But there are times, more powerfully physical than others, when we can almost taste the victory waiting just ahead of our current step and we think, “Yes! Finally it is happening!” But then things do not happen how we expected them to, nor are the immediate results what we anticipated them to be, and our minds struggle while our hearts yank our focus back to spiritually rest on Jesus. It is a painful but amazing experience reminding us who actively reigns in these living temples of our Abba’s. But regardless of what we physically experience, we refuse to give in to the apparent hopelessness of it all, and during the struggle we obediently pull ourselves back, simplify our lives by actively praising our Lord in that specific moment, which activates the call and desire to hear from our Shepherd above the noise of our soul wrenching desire to finally eat the bread of our diligent, obedient labors. What caused the shift, or change that had not been there before the journey had begun, which has led us into becoming the Overcomer our Abba designed us to become? Well, our hearts now actively live under His Divine authority, and with all of our free-will choices in first choosing Jesus it helped to nourish that change, and what we did not hear, nor see, was the whispering command issued directly from the Holy Spirit to our hearts and our hearts readily obeying Him. The long victory seeking journey establishing us as an Overcomer, which also sets so many things in our physical lives completely free, is intimately orchestrated by the Great I Am as He allows the very breath of Himself to healthily balance us and actively show us the value and simplicity of each moment in Him. A victorious moment which builds on the foundation rooted and grounded in Jesus, and strengthens our trust and keeps us totally dependent on our Creator, the Great I Am, so we may experience the greater results in His victory. And that requires us to be healthily balanced so we may be able to actively dwell and maintain that which He desires to gift us with. As an Overcomer, we actively live in Jesus, and actively experience the Riches of His glory, and yet, there is still an even greater depth of that clearly “at hand!” Praise Jesus!

​The unfailing reign of our Savior is forever constant and steadfast, and it is not determined nor dependent upon our emotions nor feelings…

Our feelings and emotions are not always aligned with our Shepherd. And there is a process the Lord takes you through in order to deeply cleanse and disconnect you from them so that you begin to stop being wrongly led by them. While you go through that process, you begin to realize how important it is for your responses to align with your Shepherd, instead of with your interpretations. And by willlingly doing that, you are openly recognizing and admitting that you care more for Jesus than what you are uncomfortably feeling. That doesn’t mean you will not be affected by your feelings and emotions, they do have a place and they are important, and they will continue to be powerful. But the difference is that they will be properly maintained and balanced by the only One who can do that, the Holy Spirit. What a beautiful, but painful experience it is, but it does lead to more victorious experiences, because as we step forward and experience new things, new issues, new problems, and other things that cause our emotions and feelings to go haywire, we learn how to inwardly pull back, and whisper “Jesus.” This cultivates an active awareness of Him, allowing that awareness to override those feelings and emotions. Sometimes there is no valid reason, nor basis, for our wayward emotions and feelings, other than being warrior training exercises where we learn to turn within to Jesus and wait, or false attacks from the environment in which we physically dwell in, which indicates to us that we may need to make some major changes. But the true miracle happens as you wait in Jesus, because you welcome the Holy Spirit into your mind to filter those feelings, thoughts, and emotions, and provide you with the necessary Words to eradicate them, and heal their effects. Each situation and circumstance is unique, and by actively trusting in Jesus, and not in yourself, you will learn to know the difference in Him feeding you those emotions, or you feeding yourself. Have you ever experienced a time where you were strangely more passionate in your response to things that normally would not have mattered so much to you? And in those cases, did a shakiness empower you from deep within and as you calmly moved in the flesh, you were energized by those emotions and feelings, while it was accompanied by a Biblical teaching? Our Abba likes us to know that He experiences emotions and feelings, and it is He, our Creator, who passionately loves us. Too many times, people needlessly condemn themselves because they think they have wrongly felt anger or happiness over something they shouldn’t, but it is not what or why we feel those overwhelming emotions and feelings, it is who we turn to to lead us through the experience that matters. Our Jesus reigns, not us.
