CAN WE ATTAIN WHAT HE HAS CALLED US TO?

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (Amplified Bible) And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God];         (Lord God, that is YOU. You do it. You sanctify me. You keep me separated from unholy things; YOU help me to be pure and consecrated to You . . . when I am committed to that goal)


and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). You Lord will help me to preserve my spirit, my soul: mind, will, and emotions~ and my body sound and complete so I can be blameless when Jesus returns.


    24 Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].


Hebrews 13:20 says God does all those things for us and for others" By the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting covenant."

 Isn't that amazing? God does it for us!



Hebrews 13:20-21 (Amplified Bible)

20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace?],  By the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting covenant."Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),


When we are praying and we plead the blood of Jesus over something, we are essentially activating the power of the New Covenant established by the death and resurrection of Jesus. We're saying, "I have God's covenant promise of blessings, and of protection and of deliverance.  So when I apply the blood of Jesus to a particular situation in my life, I essentially loose the power of God Himself to go to work for me fulfilling these covenant promises."

                                  

                                                 



This mighty Creator of the universe loves us so much! And by simply pleading the blood of Jesus over the members of my family and others as the Lord leads, I open the door for God to protect them physically and sanctify their hearts. We can even open the door for the Holy Spirit to prepare them for the coming of the Lord. How awesome is that!!


Hebrews 13:21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it).


Can this loving God offer more to us? He is the One Who gives us strength and equips us with everything we need to carry out His will. Yes He asks things of us, but He helps us to the point of actually working inside of us Himself to bring us to the point of pleasing Him!


                                             

                    Can we really ask any more?

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.
