2/22/17 Everything You Need
“Fools rush to their past sin. They focus on the world and its demands. My children rush to My heart. I call those I love to an intimacy with Me. It is there you will find everything needed to live the kind of life that Jesus lived. His kind of living overcomes the world.
"Come to intimacy. Come into My presence. Jesus has won that place for you. His death destroyed the barrier between us. His life is the example that you can follow. His power is yours if you choose to walk in it. His love gives you the right to call on My Name and be called by His.
"You are part of My plan. Come, so that I can show you your part. Come to Me, so that I can show you My love. Come to Me, so that I can show you My ways. Come to Me, so that you can know My heart. Come to Me just because you can. I am waiting.”
Luke 23:44-45 NIV
44) It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour,
45) for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
Hebrews 4:16 NIV
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Access to the inner chambers of God has been provided for us by the work of Jesus on the cross. His death and subsequent resurrection opened the door of communication for us. We now have unlimited audience with God whenever we have any kind of need, question, or just a desire to spend time with Him. It is one of the covenant commitments God made with Jesus for us. In God’s eyes, we have exchanged our old carnal life for a new spiritual life that is accepted by Him forever. The covenant cannot be broken.
In prayer, there is a connection between what God does and what you are to do. Prayer (communication with God) is the vehicle that Father God has established for us to navigate from the physical realm to the spiritual realm and back again to accomplish His will from heaven to earth through us.
Through this communication and because of the work of Jesus, God brings Himself, His plans, and His very being into His established tabernacles – us. Within the communication, we present our requests for all that is necessary for us to become who we need to be. Our Father also communicates His will to us. It is true communication between the Creator and His creation, with Father God all the while fine tuning our encounters with Him through the Holy Spirit.
Teach me how to stay there, Lord,
