God wants us to learn the art of “Being Still”God is absolutely awesome! He wants all of us to receive the precious gift of His Holy Spirit, who is His Comforter. Once we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts, His Holy Spirit internally resides within us. His now abiding Holy Spirit becomes our Spiritual Teacher. God is a Spirit of Truth. It is our daily choice to observe, learn, listen and take heed.
Know the benefits of the Blood of Jesus
“How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offer Himself unblemished to GOD, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the LIVING GOD! For this reason Christ is the mediator of a New Covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance-now that He has died as a ransom to set them free from…” HEBREWS 9
There is so much more I cannot tell it all. So You must begin to diligently seek the Lord for yourself. Spend time daily in His Word. Taste and see in His Word for yourself that the Lord is GOOD! Did you know there truly is cleansing power in “The Blood?” Take some time and learn to “BE STILL”.
Life is quite interesting. It really can make one ask at times, “How did we get here?” To know one must believe His Word. You see it is not, nor has it ever been popular to really “Believe” in God. The idea is still quite abstract to many. There are consequences for living as a true believer. Your spiritual eyes must be open to discern the spiritual warfare that is about you. His disciples were, misunderstood, rejected, abandoned, and treated horrendously on many occasions. We as believers are really supposed to be faithful modern-day disciples.
The masses have always ignored what God has to say, from Genesis to Revelation. The scriptures record over and over that “man did what was right in his own eyes.” Or simply went along with whatever was trendy or popular. When you decide to “stand up” for what is right many will sit on the fence…….. It was one of Jesus disciples that betrayed Him. Have you ever thought about where were all those people Jesus helped, and healed when they crucified Him? Look all around, we are in a crisis. Look at the scandalous political race for the President of the United States. The news, the economy, immorality, the world at large in which we live has reached catastrophic proportions on many levels. Crisis always brings about a change. “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof the world and them that dwell therein…” Yet in the midst of it all God has a way of getting our attention and showing us ALL He can use who and whomever He pleases to bring about “CHANGE!”
Throughout His Word you will find spiritual warfare involving, nations, countries, families, relationships, personality conflicts, false teachers, misunderstandings, manipulation, sexual sins, slander, you name it and it’s there. If you are looking for a case history to profile or evaluate it’s there. God did a marvelous thing when He allowed man to record His Story. His splendid, spectacular, awe-inspiring Word is the Greatest Story ever recorded. God’s Word is priceless! He has also given us the Promise that “He would never leave nor forsake us.” We can always & forever TRUST GOD!!!
“…Thine is the KINGDOM & The GLORY!” For LORD YOU are “GLORIOUS! For YOUR KINGDOM will reign FOREVER!
In life, God genuinely makes all the difference in the world! Getting to know God helps you to incredibly cope with what has gone on, is going on and is to come. It is in HIM that one can rest and find comfort and “BE STILL” even within the most difficult situations. But I must warn you it is not always an easy thing to do. Stay alert! God is near.
Wherever you are or whatever your situation good or bad know it can change at anytime. We are living in some very interesting times. Year in and year out, know that “Jesus is the reason for the season” whether you are a believer or not! Know that wherever you are Jesus knows. You can call on Him 24/7 anytime, anywhere and in every situation.
When you accept Him as your Savior, Lord and Shepherd, He will and can take you through this valley of the shadow of death. Whenever necessary He will lead you to the still peaceful waters. This is a special place of contentment in His presence. God wants to lead us on the righteous path that leads to eternal life with Him. He gives us the freedom to choose. The peace of God does surpass the understanding of man. Know some things will not be understood on this side of Heaven. But always keep in mind absolutely nothing that comes your way gets by Him. “It is in Him we move and live and have our being.” God is always speaking we just have to get better at listening. This is why discipline becomes so very important.
Be encouraged! We can “do all things through Christ that strengthens me.” But first we must trust Him and surrender our will to Him. Oh taste and see that the Lord is good. Today begin your life to live each day to please the Lord. His TRUTH is everlasting throughout all generations and yes; “BE STILL” and know that He is the Great “I AM” who always was, has been and always will be. He is worthy of all the praise. Everyday; “To GOD be the Glory!”
