We do nothing of ourselves, we are created beings who choose to be attuned to our Creator. Our deepening relationship …
Limitations of the flesh, the day in and day out decaying reality we deal with, and the ever-changing physical world around us strategically works to incessantly strip us so our spiritual eyes can clearly open as our physical eyes are closed. Only then can we truly and more intimately see the profound existence of our Creator’s depth defining, earth shattering love specifically directed to each of us; that profound richness of His Glory! As we actively live moment by moment in Jesus, the Holy Spirit is able to heal our thinking pattern, renew our priorities, and sanctify our moments. It is those precious, sometimes very painful, eye-opening moments when we privately learn that the only thing we can rely on and trust in is our limitless, never changing Creator. Trusting in God’s love closes our limited perceptions and opens us up to expecting limitless results because we personally realize how little we really know. That triggers our reliance to shift to rely more on spiritual happenings, our trust to shift to trusting more on what our Abba says, and our minds to shift to rely only on what Jesus says. Only our Shepherd can effectively guide us into His resurrected victory, all the while strengthening our relationship with Abba, and nourishing our faith as the Holy Spirit personally secures us. A richness, only our Creator can provide!
Our minds, feelings and emotions, and even our bodies dislike rough or uncertain experiences. But our spirits? Well, they thrive in them, because our dependency on Jesus is nourished, our spiritual eyes are strengthened, and our minds are slowly healed by the Divine knowledge released through the experience. Those dreaded experiences begin to show themselves as the much needed warrior-in-Christ training exercises we need to experience and gain His confidence in, in order to build our faith and trust more soundly in Abba. And they also uncover a depth of Divine healing strategically used to intimately show you and remind you, God is greater than all things, most especially yours and other people’s wrong free-will choices. As the Holy Spirit profoundly secures us, each experience, either good or bad, will always reveal our Savior’s conquering victory and the Truth we need to know and understand. The limitless depth of our Abba’s love for us is also uncovered, because through each bad experience our spiritual ears and eyes are uniquely opened up and we realize, in the flesh: only God is good, the very Breath of Himself intimately sustains us, and we already have the only thing we really need~ our Jesus!
Our deepening relationship with Jesus reveals the miraculous change in our understanding. We no longer rely on what we know, what we learn, or what we think we need to find out. Our minds become less engaged with the world and more attuned to our Savior, as the Holy Spirit interprets and “shows” us what we need to truly see. What is happening is that we are relying more profoundly on our Creator, and less on our physical world. We are deeply learning there is always a depth to all things, and that depth is intimately known only to our Abba, the Great I Am. As our determination stays fixated on only wanting Jesus, we intimately begin to actually see how open, continuous and active prayer is. It is a private, life-giving opening to a communication our Lord unfailingly secures and monitors, and an environment where He specifically builds and strengthens our trust, intimately nourishing our faith in ways beyond our limited minds.
