David was a watchman on the way. His soul thirsted for God. That’s how we were created to function. The behemoth was hungry for the grass because that’s the way God made him. We are to be hungering and thirsting for the things of God; there is emptiness when He’s not there. If you would study history you would find that every civilization worships something that is superior to them. That is what God made each person to be and have but it was to be towards Him, and not to satan and his kingdom.
Lord we ask for boldness. Boldness of the things that we know that we know that are in You. The truth that lies within us. Not without wisdom, and not without understanding, but those things that we know to be true we stand before the world in boldness and boldness silences because it is truth. Truth is the anchor. Hope is the anchor. Life is the anchor to our soul. And that is You living in us. Lord we know that without asking we won’t receive. So we are asking now to place in us a boldness that will move people to seek Your face. Thank You Lord for saving my soul, for making me whole and making me bold to be Your witness of who You are.
When He sees that you want Him, you’ll begin to move God in a way you’ve never moved Him before. But your soul has to be full of life and the heart has to be obedient to the covenant that He placed there. When those two things come together and the soul fellowships with the covenant in the heart, then you become mighty and it is God that does it and you know it.
Matthew 10:39, He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. If you lose your life on the cross, you’re going to find the real you from before the foundation. But if you try to find yourself, you will never know what you were created to be.
In response to our sign we wanted to share the foundation of who we are and why we do what we do. Understanding the ways of God is very important.
I hope that when this settles in your heart it will be something that will move you into realms you’ve seen but not been able to get into. If you can grab hold of what the Lord is speaking it will usher you into realms that many of the prophets of old wished they would have been able to enter into. They weren’t able to because it wasn’t their time. We are blessed that we can enter into them. We are a blessed people if we follow the standards of God.
In intimacy with God, as He begins to change you, you’ll begin to see who God made you to be if you allow Him. You’re the clay and He’s the potter, and He will shape you the way He wants you to be shaped. Whatever it is that you’re called, you are part of the body of Christ, but each one has a part. If the whole body would be the nose it would be a runny mess. That’s the awesomeness of God. Everyone can have a part. Everyone can enter in whether it’s big or small. If we become a discerner of right and wrong He can use us.
To have and be given something you have to be proven and found that you are a faithful person. Until you become faithful to the Creator you won’t see what is in you that He has given you because it’s not activated until you become faithful. You must become a faithful follower, a doer of the word....
Faithfulness is giving all of your soul, spirit, and body over to the Lord completely. If you stumble in the process of learning to rise up and become strong in an area, you don’t quit, but keep going because you are under grace.
There is no excuse for anyone because the prophets prophesied it and the Lord came and broke the power of it and now we even have the descriptions of what the enemy is like and what he does and how he functions, so there is no reason we can’t defeat the enemy. I say the enemy is very weak – he’s only weak if you live in Christ Jesus. If you don’t live in Christ Jesus, satan owns you and it’s impossible to defeat him. The only way you can defeat him is to live in Christ who has the victory for you if you want it and He’ll teach you how to fight to get it.
There is nothing greater that you can do and be but that you please the Father. The ultimate goal is to please the Father, because when you please the Father, God can move heaven and earth to bless you. We run after the physical things. We’ve been blessed with physical things, and if you use it so you’re not bound to earthly things then you’ve been blessed. But if you use it to just keep piling up and gain the whole world you will lose your own soul and what good is it?
