These are tumultuous times filled with unrest and multi divisions of our Country and the pandemic... It feels
almost as though someone or some thing opened “Pandora’s box” on the American people (such as powers or principalities of darkness .. various spirits of satan’s army maybe??? ) ... We are seeing some startling and sad moments
… Pandemonium as well as Pandemic.
So I take a few deep breaths ... and I think … how thankful I am to remember and realize that in the midst of all … I am
of GOD’s family ... He lives IN me and AS me in Christ’s Spirit on Earth as light and Love … as He does in all His family ... We dwell with joy and gladness in HIS PEACE that surpasses ALL understanding. ”
IN HIM we live and move and have our being” Acts 17:28. We are His ‘offspring’… His family.
We reflect and we express Who our Father is ... We praise Him in thankfulness
... as in our spirit we are “praying without ceasing” by our way of life 24/7 … Attuned to God .. One with Him through Christ Jesus who IS our Life... our Breath ... our Joy. In all of it ….. We Stand. HIS Joy IS our Strength..
As our mind is kept in Him.
Knowing this and knowing we are Loved beyond our ability to imagine how deeply by Father God ~ We Stand ~ Encouraged in heart and spirit.
We do not hide His Light and Kingdom in us “under a bushel” nor His Love.. It burns in us as a “candle” and shines from us as Light for those who have perhaps forgotten who they are and the Way back to God.. For he
tells us in Ephesians 1:4 that WE WERE CHOSEN IN HIM BEFORE the foundation of the world.
We Light the Way in Christ to GOD the FATHER with LOVE… Non judgmental.. unconditional ~ LOVE ~ because
~ GOD IS LOVE ~ 1John 4:16. When we fall into His open arms of Love and Compassion all else around us dims in comparison.,
Thus we continue to bring forth God’s Kingdom
on Earth. ‘How’? One might wonder. Know this ~ “We can only do what we see our Father do and say what our Father says” (or gives us to say). Just as Jesus said about himself.
continue to encourage others. Bring Joy by a word that lifts the spirit or an act of love ... all to God’s glory..
I believe Joy is contagious ... The more we spread it the more
we feel it… Joy in a simple act or word of Love can impact a life whether at home, or while doing an errand, in the marketplace, at appointments or in our surrounding network of others ... by allowing them to “see” God’s love
or to “hear” His caring heart.
I believe this is our part in bringing the Kingdom of God out into our world ... Some are able to do more than others but all of God’s family (His Body
of Christ on Earth) can be what we are created to be in God’s Kingdom by Holy Spirit power and direction. “For as HE IS so ARE we in THIS world.. (Present tense)...1John 4:17
we Stand ... In the midst of chaos and storms . . . We Stand as God’s family . . . Rapt in God . . . Strengthened .. His Light and Love flowing in and through us and out from us as His Kingdom in us comes forth on Earth ... just over the horizon…
And we praise Him.
And We Stand ... as the family of God ... in the strength of Christ… Because GOD IS GOD and GOD DOES NOT LOSE. He may allow such as it takes to awaken the Country to Him
and bring it back into HIS reality and realm… BUT GOD DOES NOT LOSE… And no one fools God.
As for what is going on in our World and America today.. Take heart...
God has got it… He is moving in it … I believe … for it to end in good in its appointed time and for the good of His family. So we stand and we focus on our Father… And we … Trust Him.
