Awesome new day greetings, dear family of saints!!! Every morning when we arise, our lives are presented with many opportunities for how we can choose to spend our time, resources and energy. All of our lives are driven by what we hold near and dear to our hearts. In this life, there are many things that we can hold near and dear to our hearts, but there is only one thing that held dear to our hearts that will bring us victory in all things!!! Any guesses as to what that is??? Well, if you guessed Jesus, then you are rootin’ spot on!!! In our Father’s love letter of communication to us, His written Word (the Bible), inspired thru men by His Holy Spirit moving them to write just as He moves all things of the Universe, we are told that we are created by God with the purpose of enjoying the gift of Him in our life as light for our lives and that every good aspect of our lives is a gift from God!!!
“Every good and perfect gift is coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.”
In having a relationship with God who is perfect light that shines into the darkness of this world thru His written Word, He has told us we have an enemy in this life who wants to drive a wedge between us and our Father and is always at work to deceive and entice people to sin in ways that work against His heart for us!!! Rather than giving up on His relationship with us and destroying us thru death, He Himself paid the wages of all people’s sins by leaving His heavenly throne on high, coming into the darkness of earth as light thru a man named Jesus, Himself tasting death in our place on a cross, descending into the home of our enemy, hell, and retrieving the key to open up the gate of forgiveness for us so that we may enter into His eternal kingdom of love to us of faith in His efforts for us!!!
WOOOHOOO!!! YAY!!! WAY TO GOOO FATHER!!! THANK YOU FOR RESCUING US AND MAKING US YOUR FOREVER KINGDOM FAMILY!!! BLESSED KIDS ARE WE!!!
“For God so loved the world He gave us His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Therefore in the eyes of our Father, we are seen as without sin – holy, blameless and without accusation and with no condemnation!!! VICTORY DANCING I AM WITH YOU ONES OF FAITH IN HIM!!! So if when we climb out of bed each day and we think about enjoying life with our Father who loves us perfectly with unfailing, unconditional love, we can know that it is thru our faith in Him and His performance on our behalf on the cross and His Holy Spirit that now indwells our hearts and moves our lives in ways that please Him to carry out His will, plan and purpose for us!!! It is all by His power at work in us and not our own performance efforts!!! All that for saying YES I BELIEVE IN YOU JESUS!!!
“And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”
“It is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.”
In summary of all of this love story that He has shared with us, the bottom line is that when we believe in our Father and we look to Him as the priority of our lives, our lives will be heavenly rewarded by Him both here on earth and in the future when He ushers us into His eternal kingdom forever!!! Thru Him, we shall have the divine life of light instead of darkness and our joy with Him in our lives will be complete!!!
“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
He tells us “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Jesus just always makes me smile – it is the power of His love and light shining into my life as this song says here that makes the difference in my heart and life!!! Wherever you are in life today, dear one – cling to our Father and always, always, always keep faith in Him above all things and we shall find our lives to be divine and filled with joy, forever blessed beyond all that we can ask or imagine!!! Got faith in Jesus??? It is the key to forever life victory, even here and now!!!
