I can be robbed of my life by not being in my Now Moment! Life is found in our moments. And what makes us a person is being in that moment, experiencing it with Him and those He puts around us.
We witness in Christ’s handling of the man born blind that it was not about who sinned, it was a circumstance intended for the glory of God.
Jesus quotes the Psalms which says we are gods. Are we truly little gods? We are gods as He Himself is God in us. What little Christs equals is Christ in me, not me trying to be Him.
We, God’s children, mustn't live in our opinions. My life is not my own, which includes all of my opinions. I am to be impartial which isn't natural!
Though I am royal by rebirth, my royalty doesn't come from me. God didn't make thousands of little royals to be rulers. He wishes to Rule in and through thousands of little royals.
A friend of mine asked if he was listening to the instruction of man too closely. So I asked the Father, "When is close too close?"
What if the presence of difficulty and hardship were just the Lord’s plea for us to embrace our dependence and pursue relationship with Him?
How far will our God go to make Himself known and to love us? I can never underestimate the lengths to which God will go in assisting me to know Him. His reach and pursuit is often shocking.
‘God, whatever it takes for me to get to know You, I want it, because there's nothing else that can satisfy my heart like You.’
I am not lifting up shame, triggers or dysfunction as a virtue in themselves and certainly not holy, but do our triggers and dysfunction have no purpose? Not so much!
There’s a factor left unmentioned in my last post about the story of three tragic lives: GRACE! I wanted to dedicate a whole post to it.
In the end, we will have the reality for which we petitioned. Lord Jesus, have mercy on us for the choices we make!
