We have moved from the lengthy, painful process where Jesus has been able to establish His reign within every aspect of our lives. Having been on the beautiful but undeniably painful threshing floor for so long, we have lovingly and intimately learned it is He who has stripped us bare, cleansed us, healed us, and built us back up within Him and under His active reign with His thick, fortifying Blood continuously coating us while the Holy Spirit has actively released those specific instructions and teaching lessons we uniquely, and individually, need to know. His Blood is something we are continually mindful of, which in and of itself has become a safeguarding technique within our own private lives. Jesus has established us as overcomers and Abba has thoroughly secured us as such. Our self-discipline and self-control has been actively fortified by His reigning presence within us because we have united with Him in nourishing the Mystery of the Gospel, ‘Christ within us.’ But some of us may have finally reached a point where Abba allows us to understand that we now must choose once and for all within our minds. We are being Divinely led into a new season, and He intimately shows us the difference our free-will choice will cause us once we choose: the boldness we will actively experience and intimately know to levels beyond what we currently experience, which is fueled on by the very presence of Him within our lives; while at the same time the Holy Spirit reminds us of how our lives on the threshing floor, our season and time during the battering and raging of multiple storms within our physical lives has led us to where Psalm 16:11 really is the only way to describe how we are now, as we firmly grasp Jesus and refuse to ever let go: ‘Thou wilt show me the path of life: in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy Right Hand there are pleasures for evermore.’ (Psalm 16:11)  Yes, we want Jesus more than anything else and Abba, the Great I Am, wants more for us than we could ever possibly imagine. He wants permanence, He wants to draw us in even deeper and while we know only the Holy Spirit can breathe for us as we sink into those Divine depths, we clearly see the free-will choice we need to individually make which Abba will miraculously use to seal that existence so we may continue to move forward and deeper within His confidence, in His strength, in His power, and in His Truth. There have been countless times in the past where we have had to choose to actively stand on Truth before anything else, and now, wow, we actively see where it has led us to! Truth is now our actively soothing path beneath our physically sore feet, and Jesus is our Shepherd who diligently leads us while the Holy Spirit provides the sustaining breath we need in order to be able to actively live within this new environment Abba says we are ready for. We want Jesus more than our healing, we want Jesus more than our thoughts, we want Jesus more than any knowledge, we want Jesus more than fulfillment, and we want Jesus more than tomorrow. He actively reigns within our lives, and with our free-will choice immediately having been made, our spirit boldly stands erect within these living temples of Abba’s as the Holy Spirit unites it with our minds and through Abba’s diligent efforts creates a permanent environment where we now confidently stand right up against our Shepherd. Our excitement is being fueled on even more because we are reminded of Isaiah 55:8-9: ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.’  Praise King Jesus for the secret awareness of His Protection showing us how to live under our new, Divine Reigning, state of mind sealed by the Blood of the Lamb!
