Richly Blessed

[spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom=”no” pb_border_bottom=”no” width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

We are richly blessed to be called the sons and daughters of God. May we rejoice knowing our new identity in Christ. Let us be confident that He is forever by our side. Jesus tells us be anxious for nothing. So do not worry about a thing. For if you do you only feed the problem and it takes longer for that problem to be resolved. People say to you don’t worry about something that might never happen. I say instead that if you worry about something it may cause it to happen because what our faith believes shall happen
… will mostly like happen. When we worry we do not have a problem believing in our worries. We never doubt about how bad a problem might be in our lives. Sadly we too often believe in them. Instead let us have faith in God. Believe in Him instead. Whose report shall we believe? For He alone is trustworthy and faithful. He has positionally delivered us from all our worries and troubles and sicknesses. All we have to do is take hold of his truth and his kindness and Faithfulness and give him all our troubles. As the lady in the song shown in this post sings so beautifully…..

“Holy Father
Holy Son
Holy Spirit”

………..

If you have allowed Jesus in to your heart and confess Him as your Lord and believe that He was raised from the dead…. You are blessed indeed!

Psalms 34:7-10,13-18
[7]The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them.
[8]O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
[9]O fear the Lord, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want.
[10]The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing.
[13]Keep your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking deceit.
[14]Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.
[15]The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry.
[16]The face of the Lord is against evildoers, To cut off the memory of them from the earth.
[17]The righteous cry, and the Lord hears And delivers them out of all their troubles.
[18]The Lord is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Lord You are good. Thank you for all you have done and all you continue to do in our lives. You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek you.

As you are so are your sons and daughters in this world.

Pastor Marc

God Has Given Us The World

Jesus created this earth, but God wanted to have man and woman rule over it and subdue it.   We find this in:

Genesis 1:26-28 (NASB)

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

 

We also see it confirmed in:

Psalm 115:16 (NASB)

16 The heavens are the heavens of the Lord,
But the earth He has given to the sons of men.

In Psalm 8:4-6, we see we are to rule over the works of God’s own hands:

Psalm 8:4-6 (NASB)

What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Yet You have made him a little lower than God,
And You crown him with glory and majesty!
You make him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,

In Luke 10:19 Jesus gives out His authority for Believers to do just this.  Indeed after the cross Jesus went to hell to take back the keys.   Those were the keys that Adam and Eve originally forfeited to Lucifer (Satan) in the Garden of Eden when they betrayed God by sinning against Him by accepting the temptation of the devil himself.

Now it is up to us Believers to use this authority, to subdue the earth, that earth that God GAVE to man to run and have dominion over.   People often say “God’s in control”.   If He was in control, the world would already be perfect, since every good thing comes from above (James 1:17).   He put US in charge of this earth, and that may explain to you and I why the earth is in the state it’s in.   Yes, we are living in a fallen world, but that does not mean we should leave it the way it is. 

God has given us the world, so let’s you and I make a difference.   Jesus had good reason to tell His disciples to pray this way:  for God’s Will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.   Why else would we need to pray this if God’s Will was already being done on earth by default? It is plain to see that God’s Will is not always accomplished.

You can make a difference, laying hands on one person a day, you can make a difference speaking life into someone through love.   You can make a difference, and you have been anointed to do just that! (Isa 61).   This is no pep talk, this is serious business.  People’s lives are on the line.    To top it all, it’s a commandment of Jesus to do this from the Great Commission (Mark 16:14-20):

The Disciples Commissioned

14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 Thesesigns will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.]

[And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]
