SIMMER TIME. Are you tired of being on the back of the stove? Have you been waiting for someone else to give you permission to live? It’s time. You’re ready. Take off your own lid. Taste your own soup. Add some salt if you need it. Get off the fearful burner and get moving. Maybe you NEEDED to simmer a while. But now go burn for the world to see His goodness. Simmer time is over and it’s time to eat.
Braver Saturday – No More Games – the enemy in the earth and between our own ears is always shaming and blaming. It’s a game. Come up higher into His Truth. You are made in His Image. Love yourself. Love-d
Braver Wednesday – 1 Corinthians 5:8 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…WHOA that by itself is a stop in your tracks and think about how we don’t even show one another the time of day for goodness sake…but we have the ONE Who made us Who SHOWED US UPCLOSE AND PERSONAL HIS LOVE
1 Corinthians 5:9… much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath (the destruction that was to come in 70AD..when the Old Covenant was judged…you do realize God has already sent HIS wrath and that what Jesus said was finished was completed in 70AD?? Everyone should understand the historical aspect of God’s word and what happened)…
1 Corinthians 10 …IF while we were enemies, we were reconciled, changed mutually and changed TOWARD GOD THROUGH the death of HIS SON much more having been reconciled – we shall be saved by HIS lifetime….so those who were delivered…..were preserved through HIS LIFE….HIS LIFETIME..HIS LIVING FOR US…..HE LIVES FOREVER! AND HE LIVES INSIDE OF US!! BAM…….never alone…..born again…born from heaven…..HE STEPPED IN YOU……NOT JUST BESIDE YOU..NOT JUST AROUND YOU..NOT JUST ON YOU…BUT INSIDE WHERE HE fills every nook and cranny with HIMSELF………….
1 Corinthians 11 … NOT ONLY THIS BUT we ALSO exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through Whom we have NOW RECEIVED THE RECONCILIATION…the exchange…the adjustment…the restoration to divine favor. WAIT!! We have already received???? SERIOUSLY??? HOW CAN THIS BE………OH…..COULD THIS BE WHAT THEY CALL GOOD NEWS????
1 Corinthians 18 – so then, as through one transgression there resulted Condemnation – an adverse sentence – a judgment against all men – even so, through one act of righteousness, there resulted JUSTIFICATION – ACQUITTAL – REMISSION, REDEMPTION, DELIVERANCE FROM GUILT, DELIVERANCE FROM THE POWER OF SIN of LIFE to ALL MEN. YES…ADAM CONDEMNED ALL MANKIND……WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION AND WITHOUT OUR HELP AND BEFORE WE WERE EVER BORN HE BROUGHT DEATH TO US. YES…JESUS JUSTIFIED………ALL MANKIND… WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION AND WITHOUT OUR HELP AND BEFORE WE WERE EVER BORN HE BROUGHT LIFE TO US.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THAT???
It’s a priceless process to grasp, receive and understand that HE already endured the price so that we can step into the priceless process. JUST RECEIVE.
The journey to knowing HIM and being known by HIM …is priceless and so be patient with you through the process.
I’m cognizant there is a bigger historical and spiritual context and a smaller context…but this was what Jesus was loving me with……hope it encourages you to be the new you…….that you already have become while on the priceless journey……to becoming more like Him. Love – d
Fearless Friday- what has been placed inside you? Honor? Healing? Abilities? Character? Kindness? Forgiveness? Love? Let yourself be kept by God. #BEBRAVER and Guard yourself. Stay in agreement with His Spirit instead of your mindset. Love-d
Motivated Monday – Love somebody!!!
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4 ESV
Super Saturday-Sometimes we must be BRAVE and see one another as we are and accept one another right where we are – with imperfections – with doubt – with unbelief. Be BOLD and look doubt in the eye and say though you do not trust me – I LOVE YOU ANYWAY. Have RESPECT for yourself and follow up on whatever it is you doubt you in – maybe you doubt you because you continue to fall through for yourself and maybe you have reason to doubt. WHOA. Imagine that. So, this time – take ACTION AND follow through and follow up and finish what you started and do the best you can do – for you and for God. Be VICTORIOUS over your weakness to feel rejected OR to not finish. ENCOURAGE yourself in the LORD! You be you and LOVE yourself until the very end – even if you sometimes stand in the door of doubt about yourself.
Until soon, d
Fearless Friday-Something about one person …that one person…carries power, carries change, carries a presence. What about you? Do you see the one who carries the power to lift a room out of depression? Or change the mind of the oppressor from one who preys to pray? Can you present love that brings heaven to earth? Who are you?
Do you remember that commercial that uses the slogan, “What’s in your pocket?” Well, I ask you, “What do you carry?” Do you know?
You are the one. You carry life. You are alive and you have the power to change every room you enter. What will you do with that kind of power? What will you do with you?
