Discovering our relationship with the Living God
The Measure Of God's Love
Ephesians 3:16-20 I ask that out of the riches of His glory He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. Then you, being rooted and grounded in love, will have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us...

Possessing Our Salvation
Possessing Our Salvation - READY TO MEET WITH THE LORD
Freedom is your new nature.
The Lord has led me through the valley of the shadow of death and I fear no evil.
I sound an alarm wake up to your salvation! Joel 2:1-2 Blow the ram’s horn in Zion; sound the alarm on My holy mountain! Let all who dwell in the land tremble, for the Day of the LORD is coming; indeed, it is near— day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like the dawn overspreading the mountains a great and strong army appears, such as never was of old, nor will ever be in ages to come.
Possess your soul by the study of it, know your ways. That means the way you think, the way you feel, the way you react, know your ways, know you. Because then we can really clean the house.
We have been set free from mental bondage. Walking by the Spirit (Ezekiel 36:16–38; Galatians 5:16–26) Romans 8:1-4 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For in Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of life set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man, as an offering for sin. He thus condemned sin in the flesh, so that the righteous standard of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Stop being blinded by the person next to you.
Spotted with the flesh, Jude 1:20-25(21-23) Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
The Lord is our shield and defense all around us every day. The word the Lord has spoken to us is in our hearts and minds, we can trust Him; He is here with us every moment. Listen to the song, “I Speak Jesus,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcmqSfr1ENY
My prayer for us, Lord help us to submit our soul to your will. Help us Lord to receive every word you have said. Help us to know in our heart the intensity of your love for us; So that no matter what anyone else is doing we are not blindsided by their ignorance. but that in all our ways we hear your voice and stand strong with your word in our hearts and mouths ready to speak life rather anyone likes it or not. Lord keep us from compromising.

Forgive Just As God Has Forgiven You
Let’s get our pride and emotions in order so that we will be ready for the LORD'S coming. Holding on to offenses will weigh us down, but giving the Lord what concerns us will cause us to walk out our soul salvation in the power of God. We can trust Jesus with everything.
Luke 12:35-40 “Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning, as though you were waiting for your master to return from the wedding feast. Then you will be ready to open the door and let him in the moment he arrives and knocks. The servants who are ready and waiting for his return will be rewarded. I tell you the truth, he himself will seat them, put on an apron, and serve them as they sit and eat! He may come in the middle of the night or just before dawn. But whenever he comes, he will reward the servants who are ready. “Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would not permit his house to be broken into. You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.”
Proverbs 19:11 A man's insight gives him patience, and his virtue is to overlook an offense.
Proverbs 15:18 NIV A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.
2 Corinthian 2:10 NLT When you forgive this man, I forgive him, too. And when I forgive whatever needs to be forgiven, I do so with Christ’s authority for your benefit,
2 Corinthians 2:9-11 My purpose in writing you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And if I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven it in the presence of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan should not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
I Will Save Those Who Love Me
I Will Save Those Who Love Me
A Constant Salvation
Christ in you the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:26-28 The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.
More than conquers
Romans 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Whatever comes our way we are the redeemed of the Lord. Jesus has gone before us into the heaven and spiritually speaking we are seated in heaven, in Christ, in God and we will be with him forever. We are saved, we are deeply rooted in God through Christ.
Revelation 20:10 And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, into which the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. NIV
Psalm 91:9-16 (14) “Because he loves Me, I will deliver him; because he knows My name, I will protect him.
Hebrews 12:1-4 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. 3 Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. 4 After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin.
Galatians 5:22-25 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. 25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. 26 Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.
My Prayer, “Father help us to shine as lights in this world.”
IN SPIRIT & IN TRUTH
In Spirit And In Truth
Hebrews 4:13 Jesus answered, “Those who drink this water will get thirsty again, but those who drink the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring which will provide them with life-giving water and give them eternal life.”
Hebrews 4:23-24 But the time is coming and is already here, when by the power of God's Spirit people will worship the Father as he really is, offering him the true worship that he wants. God is Spirit, and only by the power of his Spirit can people worship him as he really is.”
Mental Opposition: For some it may be physical opposition but no matter what type of opposition we face if we're not stationary in God, rooted in Christ we will be thrown off and easily moved by our situations and circumstances. I was told one time through prophecy that there was a root in the ground, but it was not stationary yet. At the time I didn't understand quite what they meant by that but as I went on through the situations and circumstances that life brings us, I found myself in dread and doubt and grief and in fear. The root that was not strong enough yet went deeper into God's love as I gave Him all the cares. I was driven to the place where I could say, Lord, I trust you. This might still be happening, but I trust you, this hurts my heart, but I trust you, thank you, Father, thank you, Lord Jesus. We have to learn to lay everything down before him so the spirit of God can show us how to bear fruit in every season.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9 Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
Deuteronomy 6:5 And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.
Peace that surpasses all understanding - Stand Firm in the Lord - He will guard your heart and mind
Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
