Christ in Us

31 Mar

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.~Christ In Us~

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Jesus living in us. His fruit manifest and His light shines forth as the attributes of the spirit flow out “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

Colossians 2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have on your behalf and for those who are at Laodicea, and for all those who have not personally seen my face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this so that no one will delude you with persuasive argument. 5 For even though I am absent in body, nevertheless I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good discipline and the stability of your faith in Christ.

Colossians 4:2-6 “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving, praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned, that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak. Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”

Colossians 1:27 “To whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Ephesians 3:14-21 “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend through all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
John 14:6

Those in Christ are sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise. Ephesians 1:13-14

God’s Spiritual Wisdom

21 Sep
  Wisdom~Understanding~Knowledge
Wisdom, Understanding. and KnowledgeGod’s Spiritual Wisdom And A Heart Pleasing To Him
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Thorns and Cross
Proverbs 8:11 “For wisdom is better than jewels;
And all desirable things cannot compare with her.
                 
12“ I, wisdom, dwell with prudence,
And I find knowledge and discretion.
13“ The fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverted mouth, I hate.
Lets look at Solomon~ After Solomon’s father (King David) died Solomon had a dream. In the dream God asked Solomon  “What can I give You?” Look how Solomon responded 1 King 3:6 Then Solomon said, “You have shown great lovingkindness to Your servant David my father, according as he walked before You in truth and righteousness and uprightness of heart toward You; and You have reserved for him this great lovingkindness, that You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day. 7 “Now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king in place of my father David, yet I am but a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. 8 “Your servant is in the midst of Your people which You have chosen, a great people who are too many to be numbered or counted. 9 “So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”
 We can see Solomon’s humility. He asked God for an understanding heart and wisdom for discernment. We find his request was pleasing to God and given to Solomon.  The Lord was so pleased with Solomon’s request that he said; “See, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you.” (Verse 12)

Ephesians 1:13 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. 15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.

 As children of God we are told to ask, seek and knock~

James 1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 “Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? 10 “Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? 11 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

Wisdom That Comes From Above

James 3:13 Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. 18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Having a Thorn In Our Flesh Is A Blessing!!!

Having a Thorn In Our Flesh Is A Blessing!!!

Situations that would have most of us wanting to avoid, help our lives like no other experience. I know there are treasures to be found in our suffering. God allowed Satan to torment Paul for God’s own good purposes and always within God’s perfect will. What we do know about this thorn in the flesh comes from Paul himself in

2 Corinthians 12:7 “To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.

It was to keep Paul humble.

2 Corinthians 12:8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

We can see Paul wanted the thorn removed but the Lord knew what was best and allowed Paul to understand why he needed it.
Whether Paul’s ‘thorn’ was physical sickness or something else, it taught us a great lesson. Christ deviated the fiery dart with such precision that it punctured only that part of Paul that was in danger of bloating with pride. That dart crossed through the scarred hands of Jesus and entered Paul as a manifestation of divine love and wisdom.
Our scars are our testimonies to boost in the Lord and show glory to him.

Paul’s discomfort became necessary because the sin of pride loomed dangerously near.

2 Corinthians 12:1-7
We can learn pride is not something the Lord desires for his Children. It is important we have a humble heart. Pruning Is the way the Lord molds us to serve his purpose for our lives.
We need to be thankful for our thorns!!!

Romans 8:18
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Wishing Great Blessings To Each and Everyone of YOU!

Pray And Ask God For HIS Spiritual Wisdom~

23 May

 

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5

We  all need to pray and ask God for HIS spiritual wisdom because without it there is no way of understanding God’s will for our lives. It is so important to trust the Lord even when tragedy happen in our lives. Look to the story of Job who was a righteous man of God, yet he endured much suffering. He lost his wealth, his seven children and was inflicted with painful boils. Job knew everything he had was really God’s belongings, but he lacked in God’s wisdom and knowledge. Later in the story God shows Job things that are so complex that the human mind can No way understand. Job came to realize it wasn’t his place to question why these things were happening but having complete faith in HIM. Trust in God and remember HIS promise. James 1:12 Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Remember we are to serve God, not the other way around. As Christians it is easy to serve HIM when everything is going good, but what happens when tribulation comes along. Are we hypocritical and turn our back on God, saying how could you let this terrible thing happen. We must trust our God through the good and the bad,  he is wiser than we. We need to understand HIS wisdom is out of this world. Nothing on this Earth is ours, everything belongs to the Lord. Remember to ask the Lord for direction and to show you HIS purpose for your life!

God Bless All Of You!
