Face to Face With God

Was reading GPAN the other day and one thought had pastel colors around it; that is, it registered in my spirit:


We don’t have a long distance relationship
We are in a face to face experience with You – God Almighty, Creator of the heavens and the earth
The one Who is Love, the One Who gave love
The One who is an eternal God, a covenant keeping God




What a great concept! We truly are in a face to face relationship with our Almighty God! Remember how Moses was “a friend “ of God? That is our relationship only with us it is deeper. We can have Holy Spirit, Creator of the Universe indwelling us. We can have Him as our mentor, our guide, as lover of our soul! The way is through Jesus Who chose to come to earth to teach us about God, and to give up His life for us. Man’s sin nature could never get us into heaven, because God and sin can never exist close together~ it would be like fire and paper. Bring paper too close to fire and paper is destroyed.






Jesus died as a sacrifice for mankind. In His dying as man and Son of God, He was able to pay off our sin debt. When we personally accept His great love gift to us, we actually have a transformation; our sin nature is washed out of us and we receive a God nature of righteousness. We may still make mistakes, but when we see them and repent, they disappear. So we are enabled to grow into the person God created us to be, and that includes building a connection to God that continually develops into an ever stronger bond. 



Christ in us~ how magnificent a life we can have! Our love and obedience to Him brings us into His Kingdom, where we are His representatives, His ambassadors on earth. Living life with His grace and power becomes a fulfillment we can find no place else. My friends, do not underestimate the wonder and joy of this life. His book, the Bible, tells us the history of God’s love for us and demonstrates so much more. I recommend that you begin to read it regularly and prayerfully if you don’t already. The Book of John in the New Testament is a great place to begin to find a connection.

Finally, know that in this world where the enemy is working to stir confusion up like a witches cauldron, we can have peace in our souls. 


John 14:27 
Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]

Jesus also promises us in John 17 that we can have His joy. (In my book Cast Up A Highway there is an event I share from my cancer journey where Jesus joy filled me and no fear could even get close). 


The Bible carries many promises to those who choose to accept Jesus and live by His ways. It's a good choice!
