We All Have Choice ~ Choose God, Choose Life! Part 2
God has never stopped speaking and seeking relationship with His children since the dawn of time. Even when time is no more, God will still have a relationship with you. Relationship was born with time, but on God’s heart before time, so in essence has always been eternal. Thus God’s desire for you as an individual person, existed before time. Time was created for man, God is not restricted to time. God exists throughout all time, before time and beyond time … all in a blink of an eye, at the same time.
I believe our spirit when praying/worshiping/communing with God, does this in a place outside of time, outside of place or location and effectively how the Body of Christ is united, wherever you are on the globe, and are spiritually connected. Prayer between two members of the Body of Christ can happen at either side of the world, yet at that moment they are united in the same spiritual place, in prayer…so just as effective as if sat in the same room.
So talk to your Father in heaven, listen to and for His answer, then respond, action and follow Him in that, in essence Listen, hear and obey on time.
21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. 22 Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.
8“By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.”
See God does not go anywhere, doesn’t leave His place from in front of you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, He loves you.
So what stops us from talking and listening and following in His footsteps? What stops us walking with God, or through our eyes seem that way? because remember God will never leave you nor forsake you, it is ourselves who take our eyes off God.
God is before you, besides you, behind you, underneath you, above you, throughout it all. All of creation testifies of God because God has simply been through it all, for it’s testimony to have been borne. Like the bird in my house fire that day. I strongly believe that was God using our bird to warn me, the foreboding I felt was right to feel that, because without it I would not have been led to ‘obey’ and go home.
Incidentally the animals died that day, we lost all our possessions, except for the clothes on our backs, we were left with nothing materially. However, I am reminded that ‘although all maybe destroyed and fall down around you, you will be left standing’ and by the Grace of God that day, we were.
The Holy Spirit teaches you things and lays it on your heart, the Bible tells you this.
We may have built walls or barriers, thinking it is keeping God out, protecting us from having to ‘deal’ with whatever, when in fact it is doing the opposite … its keeping God in. Only when the wall is removed, do you see what is already within you.
You can build walls that keep God out … how many times have you heard that phrase? I have even spoke it myself. But you know, on pondering this I do not think it is quite a true reflection. I think it is more the former … you build walls that traps God inside your heart. You are a temple of the Holy Spirit, your heart is the hub of God in you. So these walls you build, keep you away from your secret place with God, so you have inadvertently trapped yourself out with the enemy. I have to recognize I have done this.
On top of this, God isn’t able to reach out or shine out to others through you the same, if at all, simply because of these walls. You can’t see God in you, start thinking He has abandoned you, when in fact like Jesus on the waves with Peter, He never went anywhere, it was only Peter who couldn’t see. Blessed are those that believe and yet do not see. The downward spiral begins and the door opens for apathy and all sorts to waltz right on in … let the lies of satan begin in deceiving you, trying to keep you from turning to God.
When you recognize that a wall needs taking down, our Father’s tenderness heals us, right to the root, to the foundation and cornerstone of that, replacing it with full healing. His Love is a complete salve to your life.
Imagine what all the Temples on the earth look like to God looking down on the globe? Are we the network of God’s Light and Love around the globe, so God’s Love and Light can connect all around the globe like neurons, so God’s Love will conquer all? Are we God’s stars on earth for all to see and connect to each other with? (revelation)
Do we do this with God? too stubborn to let go and let God heal, guide, restore, renew and refresh, to still the mind to hear His voice, to have that loving relationship with our Father, to have His parental guidance? We are His sons and daughters, we are worthy of His Love … if you do not feel worthy or not ‘up to the mark’ for God, then this is a lie from Satan to keep you from God. God loves you, and like the story of the Prodigal Son, He is waiting with arms open for you to come running home to Him. Don’t let your song at the end of your life have the lyrics … I did it My Way, but that they have I did it God’s Way!
What keeps us from letting go of our mountains, and just hopping onto that highway of God’s?
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders …
Deut 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
