Word Whispers – Psalm 119:50

Word Whispers

 “This is my comfort in my affliction, That Your word has revived me and given me life.” – Psalm 119:50

The power of the Kingdom of God is rooted in God’s faith in me.

I have received the mind of Christ; I have been planted in the good soil of New Creation life.

In Christ I lack nothing; I have the abundant, overflowing streams of eternal life living inside my heart.

The vastness of His provision that resides within me is beyond all I could ask or think. For his values, power, have been deposited into the chamber of my heart.

Now every scripture that I take into my heart, memorize, mediate on combats the influence and lies of the world. God speaks through his word to remind me of his faithfulness and love that he has imparted into my life.

Every verse is an anchor of hope, and every promise is strength to my heart and life to my body.

The essence of all Christ is is contained in his promises to me.

Grab that promise, take that verse let it be planted in your heart and be rooted in the good soil and grow into an oak of righteousness in your life.

Word Whispers – Genesis 1:1

Word Whispers

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” – Genesis 1:1

One of the expression that I often hear quoted and I have quoted myself on numerous occasions is “Jesus + Nothing = Everything.” This expression does capture the realisation that without Christ everything has no meaning and that if we add anything to Christ we start to live by our own efforts.

Often the focus of our attention is on the everything. All the promises of God, all the blessings of heaven, all the inheritance of grace and whilst this is exciting, powerful, relevant and essential to our understanding of our relationship with the father, the other dynamic is that of nothingness.

When we talk of nothingness what does it look like? What is the essence of adding nothing to Christ?

The very first verse in the Bible is a catalyst of this expression and within it ten words are the very foundations of all Christ accomplished for us at the cross.

The universe was created out of nothing. Before God spoke the word, nothing existed, there wasn’t a single atom, a single speck of dust, the tiniest particle, nothing existed before God created it.

Our hearts are easily absorbed with something and that something invades our lives with things and ideas that try to give us what only God can give.

And here is the bottom line, how much do we let something invade and permeate into the finished work of Christ?

God is the creator, Christ is the author and finisher of our faith and the Holy Spirit is our guide into all truth.

We are already reconciled to heaven; the divine has reached down, kissed and embraced the lost child.

His finished work is complete; you are now complete in him, live in the fullness of his completed work.

Word Whispers – John 15:7

Word Whispers

“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” – John 15:7

There is a lie of Satan that has echoed from the very first lie, that God does not want us.

That God who designed us, created us, put his breath into us and poured his delight on us has somehow withdrawn himself from us.

But the truth is that God has always been close to us. In fact we can’t get away from the One who fills the whole universe and sustains our life and breath by his spirit.

Before anything existed, before anything was created God provided a solution for us, he provided the perfect sacrifice to bring us into his family, he planned and purposed our adoption.

God revealed himself to us in Christ. He entered time and become man, ’God with us.’

For our value to God is beyond measure, our worth is greater than the expanse of the cosmos.  And through Christ we have been reconciled and adopted into the eternal family.

Christ is the answer to God’s prayer.  Christ is the answer to our heart’s cry. Every prayer Christ prayed was answered, and we now remain in him because he remains in us. There is no separation between God and man, but we can separate ourselves from Him and his love for us by our belief’s and feelings that dwell in our hearts. We choose to receive all God has freely given us or reject his love and live apart from his grace.

His love and life, his glory and power now reside in the heart of every believer. His life in us gives us the power to grasp and possess all he won for us at the cross. We have received his holiness and his perfection, God has given himself to us.
