Word Whispers – John 14:28

“Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am.”  John 14:28

If you can embrace the truth of your union with Christ, you will begin to see life from a completely new perspective.  It is challenging, but the reward is a total liberation into the grace of God.

One of the traps that the world tries, with great success, is to make us believe that we are separated from the power of almighty God and if we are separated then we are alone and powerless.  We start to believe in a distant God who only shows up and acts in our lives when we cry out, pray and need him.

Our perception of God is often dependent on how we feel and experience his presence.

You as a believer in Christ are entwined and united into the glorious God who has created the universe. Every spiritual gift, blessing and ability has been made available to you and the infinite power of God dwells inside you. You have been made a New Creation in Christ, you are living in a place where there are no limitations, time does not exist, a place of no worries, no fears, a place where you are no longer a singular identity, because you are connected with God and Christ in his fullness lives inside of you.

Your true essence is that God, who is greater than you, now lives inside you and you in Christ have become a child of God. Acknowledge and embrace God’s greatness, feast on God’s greatness, let His greatness permeate and immerse your identity and let his power flow out of your life.

Word Whispers – Psalm 119:132

“Look upon me and be merciful to me, As Your custom is toward those who love Your name.”– Psalm 119:132

Christ’s power within us is the touch we need to restore our soul.

Christ is the satisfaction of our hearts, for he is satisfied with all we are in Him. His love has been showered into our heart and like a sweet perfume; our heart has become a beautiful fragrance to heaven.

Look to Christ and know that God loves you with an everlasting love.

For His love fills us with love.

His pledge to us is to be with us, never to leave us or forsake us, and to guide and protect us. To lead us into all that the Father has abundantly given to us.

You can cease from all striving and you can leave behind all trying. The love of God is your reassurance deep within.

Look only to the one who knows all and rest assured that he will reveal to you what is already true – that in Christ the reflection of your heart knows who you are.

Gaze into the mirror, into all his promises, into the image of the person of Christ, into his grace, and you will see your life, reflecting back to you, perfectly.

Satisfaction in Christ

“They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. “– Psalm 36:8

Satisfaction has a bad rap, “Satisfaction leads to passivity, and satisfaction stops us from pursuing God. We need to be hungry, we need to be passionate, and we need to press in to God.” Is often the song sung from the enthusiasm of the good intentioned.

Yet satisfaction is one of the most precious truths of the gospel.  Satisfaction is an amazing, wonderful contentment in Christ, in a fraught, ever encroaching maelstrom world of constant distraction. As sons of our heavenly father it is vitally important that we enter into and experience the satisfaction of God.

For God is satisfied with the sacrifice of the son for your sins. God is not mad at you, at odds with you, against you or judging you. He is satisfied with the work Jesus did to take away your sins, and he was the one who sent Jesus in the first place, because he loved you and was on your side and wanted to wash away all your sin and the ruin they caused in your life.

God’s satisfaction is so ultimately complete that for you there is no condemnation or guilt in Christ. God loves you and accepts you and the work of Christ is effective on your behalf.  God is totally satisfied with Jesus work, and there is peace between you and God.

Satisfaction in Christ’s finished work is essential. What we believe about God’s satisfaction of Christ will be the measure of how we see and live our new life in Christ.  Bizarrely, hunger need not be an alternative option to satisfaction, a healthy inward desire to know and experience in deeper levels all that we already have in Christ, produces an intimate love for our father and all he has accomplished on our behalf.

Let satisfaction empower you, to depths of love and oceans of assurance. As you experience God’s satisfaction of Christ and his satisfaction of you, fears, insecurities start to fade in the glory of the vastness of the all encompassing greatness of the cross.

Let satisfaction lead you into fields of overflowing provision, lands of lavish abundance, where you can view the vast expanse of the unconditional love of God and live in the abundant glory of his grace through the satisfaction of Christ’s infinite sacrifice.
