God is love, the root of all things. With each moment, as we actively choose to live moment by moment …
This is no longer our body, it is so much more. It is His living temple, and what we privately deal with we will never go through alone. It is the very Breath of the Great I Am, our Abba, who instructs us through what we deal with, handle, or come across. Through each and every experience we go through together a profound confidence is nurtured and instilled deep within us, and we also intimately learn the power within is so much more greater than what physically surrounds us, and nothing we go through will ever overcome us. His love moves mountains when we realize how we physically manifest His will under His direction while the Sacrificial Blood of the Lamb fully coats us, and it is the powerful mystery of the Gospel, fully uncovered and lovingly active, which uncovers another mystery, the profound richness of His Glory.
We were not created, nor equipped to understand everything, which is another beautiful, personal reminder of why Jesus needs to be the active, reigning Lord in our life. We have long realized that we are not to live here and wait to get to heaven to get to know Him, none of that thinking even lines up with the Bible. We do not do what we think is right, and then are left wondering if we should have done it or not, nor do we do all that we can and “hope for the best.” When we do something out of line, or something He didn’t want us to do, He immediately corrects us in only how He can. We are united with Him, we are created beings and our Creator passionately loves us. He heals when we move too fast, or too slow, He heals the way we thought we may have heard Him and found out we hadn’t. He clearly sees our heart and passionate desire to stay united with Jesus, as a result, we learn His voice through experiences and intimate alone times where we crave His presence and reach for His healing. And when it is needed, our specifically made forward movements bust through the unseen blocks and the small obstacles the enemy likes to slide before us just before we step forward, because our Creator has created us to be able to do that under His guidance while we actively choose His Way, His Life, and His Truth over all others. ‘Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ (John 14:6)
Only Jesus can release a dream, nourish it into a reality, and make it into a journey: It is that seemingly, unattainable goal, the one thing that may have even been placed within you for as long as you can remember. It is that specific thing you picture yourself doing in this life, and although others may see the impossibilities of it, you more powerfully see the possibilities. It is a gift, a dream, the one thing which strengthens your dependency on Jesus and deepens your relationship with Him, because not many others truly believe it can happen. And miraculously, He guides you through it while the Holy Spirit secures your journey. You then find that the goal is the specific thing which provides the opportunities to learn more about “seeing” His Light in the darkness, when your mind is unable to comprehend or understand it really will happen; it provides experiences where you intimately learn the nourishing strength and feeding of Hope (strong expectation) when uncertainty and closed doors are all around you, allowing you to understand His Hand when it touches all other aspects of your life; it provides moments that intensely breaks down and simplifies your life, allowing you to understand what it means for the Holy Spirit to breathe for you and how your free-will choice for Jesus opens you up to a miraculous life. But it still pales when you deeply realize that really, all you really want… is Jesus! That is what keeps you rooted to Jesus when success happens, a very personal and intense reminder you are only successful and able to even operate because of Him.
Moment by moment we actively choose to live in Jesus, and with our Comforter now present within us, His breath is now our breath because God personally sustains us while Jesus actively reigns in our life. And that is when we begin to see the Bible, in its entirety, coming to life, as well as seeing it in so many different, loving, limitless ways. Like, how it is a manifested compilation of Truths through which all things we physically encounter are filtered through. Truth binds and connects us to our Savior’s resurrected life, and as we actively live under His reign, Truth allows us to see the wrongness, or rightness of something. For instance, when we encounter something that doesn’t seem right, we stop our minds from rambling and trying to figure it out and instead, allow our inner ears to tune-in and wait until the Holy Spirit whispers a Biblical message or reminds us of a teaching He has brought us through. And likewise, He may reinforce the rightness of what we are seeing by releasing an encouraging reminder, or by adding further instruction in Truth. We live in Jesus, so we have to live through Truth, His Truth, the established Truth of our Creator, not what is sometimes said to be true, nor wrongly seen as truth. And only the Holy Spirit can release and instruct us into God’s Truth.
The profound and precise attention to detail and timing, the inner peace, the feeding strength, the soft encouragement, the enriching nourishment, and all of the other private gifts you have personally received through your intimate experiences with Jesus is not meant to just help you through the moment, but it is also instrumental in helping you in limitless ways. Each struggle and issue are experiences which reveal a whole new insight into the very real truth that Abba loves us more than anyone else ever could, and it sharpens our focus towards being able to see and understand an important truth: only He knows our inner struggles, our inner thoughts, and our needs, more so than what we know about ourselves. There is a danger of placing your struggles under a label, or rationalizing them away, or listing them under other “normal” conditions or similar things, or worse yet, claiming that “it could be worse.” Because when that happens, you begin to start undervaluing the victory over each individual struggle you encounter, tiny ones or big ones; and in-turn you begin to undervalue yourself, and more importantly undervalue the Lord’s Hand intimately involved in your life, which can then undervalue the unity between you and the Lord. What we deal with matters to our Abba, and each individual issue and struggle not only plays an important role in allowing us to miraculously experience the manifestation of our Lord’s active Hand involved in our life, but it also is a new opportunity to be passionately refined by Abba’s loving, refining fire. Only our Creator can refine us through the experiences, producing a beautiful, devoted and faithful child full of His love, safeguarded by the Holy Spirit and united with Jesus.
