10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.
Today’s Inspiration: He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens that He might fill all things. Ephesians 4:10. Each of us will manifest according to the measure of grace given to us..
Resting in the Lord means to learn to cooperate with the Presence of God and moving our ministry from laboring and striving to a place of rest. Moses understood how important it is to learn the ways of God directly from God in order to find favor with Him. Exodus 33:11-18. Learning the ways of God is dependent upon the presence of God in our life. Moses understood the correlation between learning the ways of God and finding favor with Him. It’s this intimate relationship of knowing who God is that we find His establishing favor. Desire to see His glory for it is His glory that His very presence abides. His glory is revealed by His grace to manifest signs and wonders, and healing miracles through us.
Once we know His ways and His will we will have greater faith to believe God will respond to our prayer. Whatever our lot we must always say that it is well with our soul as our sins have been nailed to the cross and we bear it no more. God has erased them from His slate. Let His peace like a river rolls in and sorrows like sea billows roll away. Christ has seen our helpless state and has shed His blood to redeem our soul from the hands of the devil.
Like Moses we learn reverence and the heart of God and His will. Like the early church we must believe in the present power not only for our transformation but authority over the power of sickness and diseases and experience the reality of His promises. The widow’s son was resurrected because of her faith declaration that it is well with her soul even though her son had died. Our faith matters to manifest a miracle. God be praised.v
Prayer: It’s our faith and affirmation of His word that manifests miracles in our lives. So Lord let my faith caused me to be well with my soul. As the soul nourishes so will our health and everything prosper. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy and has to be conquered by love for love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. To nurture the damaged trees of wrong done to us is to be a prisoner of the past. To refuse to forgive is also destructive. Unforgiveness choked the life out of marriage or out of family relationship and friendship. To avoid forgiving would mean imprisoning your emotions.
It costs the Lord Jesus at Cavalry to bring us forgiveness. If we are to bear the image of God we cannot afford not to forgive our offender. Forgiveness carries a condition that it starts with us first to forgive the offender. To accept God’s forgiveness and to refuse to forgive our offenders is a wicked act as Jesus explained in the parable of unforgiven servant in Matthew 18:21-35. When you don’t forgive and you choose to be bitter against the offender, you have made yourself a slave to the offender.
