Another Kingdom

Posted on August 4, 2017 at 9:10 AM


How sweet is the presence of the Lord! I have been in a recuperation process from surgery. It has been going really well; but the muscle healing gets to aching in the middle of the night and wakes me up. So I usually get up and lay on the couch, take a small pill, and read. It’s a quiet time; it’s dark out. The other night there was a thunderstorm, and what began to glimmer in my mind was the Power of the Lord. Sudden flashes of light, crashing of thunder. As I lay there, I could feel the Presence of the Lord fill the room. How sweet it was! Slowly I heard the storm move on as the thunder became a soft rumble. My eyes closed, a smile appeared on my face, a sigh of complete contentment preceded a deep sleep.

Have you experienced this too? Our God is so good! Peace is a place that is sometimes hard to find these days in our world. But as we realize that God is in control, and there exists more than we can see with our 5 senses, we can find peace. Yes there is another “place”; it’s called the supernatural, or the Kingdom of Jesus. The Bible tells us so:

Colossians 1:13 (AMPC)

13 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

It's a "place" and if we have this truth planted deep in our hearts, our faith will lead us to a richer understanding of God’s promises! It allows us to live in peace, because we know that God loves us dearly and provides His promises to us.


By faith we reach out and take them for ourselves. When we understand God is sovereign, none of the evil happenings in the nations will prevail. We as Christians call upon our mighty God to protect us, to lead our President and other world leaders toward peace. We pray God to give wisdom and strength to our governments. Meanwhile, we can live with inner peace.

My friends, God told us~


Jeremiah 33:2-3 AMP

“Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is His name, ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’

There is so much our finite minds do not comprehend, but as we allow our faith and trust in God to expand, He will reveal more to us. You and I were born for such a time as this! There is so much potential in each of us! Let us drown ourselves in the love and wonder of our beautiful Lord God, and thus become all we were meant be!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
