Deeper into God’s love.

God is calling us to go deeper in him so that we can go higher in Him.

What comes to your mind when you hear the word radical. I know my definition of this word was to describe somebody who was extreme in their beliefs, or way of doing things.

Radical means (from the root). To be rooted in the original.

Ephesians chp. 3 v. 16 to 19.

16. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being, 17. so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18. may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how high and long and wide and deep is the love of Christ, 19. and to know this love which surpasses knowledge  that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of god.

Paul’s prayer for us is to be rooted in God’s love.

Colossians chp. 3 v 6.

So then just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Here again we are told in the word to be rooted in the One who abides within us. God wants us to be radical, to be rooted in the original. To be rooted in the fullness of God himself. That the new life we have in him might draw all it needs to grow from the original.

On the footpath in front of our house is a mature Jacaranda tree, as I watered the front garden during the summer months little plants began to emerge through the soil that we recognised as tiny Jacaranda trees.  We planted some of them into pots, where they grew so quickly we needed to work out what to do with them. One we planted out in the back garden in a position that will provide much needed shade for the summer time. Bill has been watering and fertilising, the roots are going down deep and the little tree is now about four ft. high. The part of the tree that we cannot see, the root system , will determine how strong and healthy, how resistant to storms this tree will be.

It is no different for us the part of our life that cannot be seen will determine how like the original we are. Just like the little tree our new spiritual life has to be fed and watered to grow. We do this by reading on the word meditating on it pondering over it. As we spend time in the word daily we are renewing our minds we are rooting ourselves in the original we are stirring up our faith. Choosing to speak the word over our lives daily, sets the course for our lives. My husband Bill who who spends time in the word daily chose to write out a list of things that were in agreement with the word to speak out over his life, eg. By His stripes I am healed, I am the head and not the tail, no weapon formed against me will prosper, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. He has been speaking out his list now twice daily for about 10 weeks, he has about 2 pages of declarations.

His roots are going down deeper into God’s love, and he is amazed at the changes in his attitude towards so many things. He is setting a course for his life that lines up with the word of God.

Back to the Jacaranda tree, as the roots go deeper the trunk and branches go higher. The new tree looks like the parent tree.

So you and I, as we go deeper in God’s love, we go higher in God’s love.

We look like the parent.

This is radical.

 

 

Practising the presence of Jesus.

practising the presence of jesus

Yesterday, while looking after my 9 month old granddaughter, I was reminded how little ones love to put things into their mouths. As she crawled on the floor it seemed she had an inbuilt magnet searching out the tiniest objects. With great concentration picking up any tiny thing with her chubby little fingers and if not stopped in time  popping it into the mouth. Seeing with the eyes does not seem to satisfy them at this age, everything has to be checked for a  taste.

Our God is an Awesome God He reigns from Heaven above with wisdom, power and love.

These are the words of a little chorus we sang in church years ago, powerful words uplifting words. How many times the words of an old chorus have surfaced in my mind to lift and refresh me. I believe the Holy Spirit brings them to my remembrance when I need them. [click to continue…]

Help-during-the-storm-BibleVerseWall.com

In Mathew chp.8 verses 23 to 28 we have the account of Jesus in the boat with the disciples as they were crossing the lake. Jesus was asleep in the boat when the storm struck, the disciples were in fear of their lives, they woke Jesus. He rebuked the storm and instantly the storm ceased and the water went calm. In an instant Jesus delivered them from a situation they had no control over.

God Cares for the little things.

God Cares For the Little Things dot com

Last week I was going down memory lane remembering some of the times that God has blessed my family, sometimes with big things and sometimes with seemingly small things. I have to admit that some of the smaller things He did amazed me more. After all my mind would tell me this is the Creator of the universe He would have a lot on His plate.

The Righteousness of God

Jesus is alive

Romans  5:17 For if by the trespass of one man death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

Jesus has won a perfect rest for us on the cross, a perfect finished work was completed for us that day. Satan was stripped of all his power and the curse that was put on mankind through Adam was reversed. When we receive the revelation of Jesus dying personally for us we are born again, born of God’s incorruptible seed through the Holy Spirit.
