Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit–fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Even though you are banished to the ends of the earth, the LORD your God will gather you from there and bring you back again. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.
Deuteronomy 30:4 – Psalm 2:8
We have an adversary, who accuses us using circumstances against us even as a prosecutor takes circumstantial evidence in a court of law seeking to try a person as guilty. Yet these very circumstances when we trust our Father’s commands for our life will work together for our own good as we obey Him in obedient love. Another name for
“circumstances that lead to a favorable outcome –GOD’S BLESSINGS!”
“You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.”
As in the days of Moses and Solomon, notice that the blessing didn’t come when they began the work, but when they completed it.
In John 17: 4, Jesus said that He had finished the work that the Father had given Him to do.
He completed the work that the Father had given him to do.
Yet when He said that there still remained so much that still needed to be done!
People still needed to be saved, healed, and delivered.
Completing our work doesn’t mean that that there is nothing left to do; it means that we have done what God specifically commissioned us to do.
Practice carrying each other’s burdens. In this way you will fulfill the law of the Messiah.
Elsewhere, we are commanded that,
If someone compels you to walk a mile go two. (Matthew 5:40-41)
In the time of Christ the Romans used to be able to compel a Jew to carry their armor a mile.
We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
“See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
“…but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe. To him who overcomes and does My will to the end, I will give authority over the nations–
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before Him.
God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear Him.
Hebrews 1:2 – Revelation 2:26 – Psalm 22:27 – Psalm 67:7
“But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it,” declares the LORD.
If a dis-appointment causes you to slip, stumble and slide back into dis-couragement, then lift your face towards heaven and arise, shine for the glory of God is rising up on the inside of you THROUGH GIVING THANKS TO GOD IN ALL THINGS FOR SUCH IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOU.
Faith comes by hearing the Word of GOD even as Jesus only did what the Father showed him. We follow Jesus and when we see him, we see the Father.
Jesus who is the SAME yesterday, Today and forever, is saying to you,
“fear not only believe THEN you shall see the glory of God.”
Seeing isn’t believing for even un-believers shall see the LORD when he returns but then it is too late for the day will declare what we have done. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed in the light of the Lord.
Our own thoughts, words and deeds will either condemn or justify us, whether we lived for self or the will of the Father — whether we are obedient or dis-obeyed Him.
“Thus says the Lord: ‘Will they fall and not rise?”
Father I want to get back up and continue fighting the good fight of faith going forward in Your will not giving up or going backwards. Help me to go beyond adversity, beyond yesterday and through it all unto You. Amen.
We do not know how to pray worthily as sons of God, but His Spirit within us is actually praying for us in those agonizing longings which never find words.
Praying in the Spirit is praying according to the Will of God. If we walk in the Spirit we do not obey the lusts of the flesh. We make no pro-vision for the flesh because we trust the Almighty as our Pro-vider. He is our Source, our Answer, our Life!
To pray worthily as sons and daughters is to NOT pray our own ideas, our own answers, or telling God what to do, why to do it, and when to do it. That is the way a spoiled child behaves. An obedient child trusts and obeys His Father’s Word for he knows that His Father loves him and knows best.
When we align our will with the Holy Spirit, we not only allow but desire Him to take our prayers to the Father through the Perfect Son of Obedience Jesus according to God’s will. These are the prayers that bring forth His life as an His Answer.
Once the work is finished, not only does the blessing come, but also the glory, since the glory of God filled the Tabernacle when Moses finished building it! In the same way, the glory of God filled the Temple when Solomon finished building it! We are God’s temple not made by human hands by the Spirit of the Living God and when His Son comes to be seen in His children, the glory of God will fill the House.
Following the heavenly pattern on earth, Jesus declared that He had completed his work, and then He went on to speak about the glory,
“And now, Father, glorify Me in your presence with the glory I had with You before the world began.”
In the end, as each member of the body of Christ is functioning together in Him with their works brought to completion in Christ the Obedient Son, may we receive the blessing and hear those words. “Well done, good and faithful servant, enter in to My rest”
For only we who believe can enter his rest. As for the others, God said, “In my anger I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest,'” even though this rest has been ready since he made the world.
Only Trust and Obey for there’s no other Way
“As I was commanded” reverberate the words of perfected righteous children through the ages.
“Whatever He tells you to do, do it!”
As Mary told the servants at the wedding at Cana of Galilee when the servants filled the serving vessels with water and Christ transformed them into the very best wine.
“Be it unto you according to your FAITH.”
The Word spoken in answer to those who cried out in need to Him.
He is the Lord of the Harvest. One plants, another waters but it is the Lord who gives the increase.
Father increase the fruits of righteousness!
It Is The Lord!
“He who shall raise the dead in church-yards, can wake dead in churches!”
“For He will finish the work, and cut in short in righteousness; because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth”
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
For the Glory of God! For it is in Him we live, move and have our being!
