FOREVER?

Have you ever stopped to think about “forever” and what it really means?  Forever has no beginning or end, it has just always been and will always be.  You cannot see it, smell it, taste it, hear it our touch it, but you know that it exist and that you are a part of it.

All that has ever been, all that is, all that ever will be is the result of the unfolding of forever.  We cannot understand forever in the physical, because the physical is limited by time and space.

To grow from some understanding of forever, we must learn to yield to our Spirit, so that we can see without eyes and hear without ears.  The Spirit is life and it is important to learn the difference between living and existing.

Learning to step out of the flesh and into the Spirit is one of the most important faith steps in our unfolding journey.  In order to take this step, we must abandon our ego, which continually attempts to anchor us to the things of the flesh with possessions and achievements.

I am so much more than the man staring back at me from the mirror.  I do not need more information, I need inspiration.  Inspiration that flows from the Spirit to me and through me. Life in the Spirit allows me to go to places that most people never go, because most or too lazy to step out of the flesh.  This laziness causes us to miss the real joy of the moment, because we have never learned the value of forever.

Think about forever and as you travel inward, let go of the flesh and yield to the Spirit,  Now – pay attention, because there are amazing things to learn on this journey.  As you actually begin to see and hear spiritually, the unfolding of forever, you will begin to live in a new space, a space where time and place do not matter so much.

You will find yourself coming into alignment with your created purpose, which will bring balance to your life and living, which will begin to restore to your life the amazing gifts of love, joy and peace.

Enjoy the journey and live blessed!

Believe You Are Already Blessed!

The promise of God in Ephesians 1 is that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the Heavenly Realms.  The child of God should never be desperate, hungry or anxious, because God in His infinite love has supplied all of our needs.  When anxiousness marries hopelessness, they give birth to a spirit of desperation, which causes us to resign ourselves to whatever, whenever, limited and defeated living.

As God’s children, when we live without hope, it is because we have made the choice not to appropriate what God in His amazing grace has given us.  We often spend our energy, asking God to give us something that He has already provided.  We need to stop asking God to do something for us that He has already done and start claiming what God has already done for us.

If you are hungry for the things of God, it could be because you have not taken the time to sit down at the banquet table that He has provided and taken nourishment from what He has given.  Jesus said in John 6:35 – “I am the bread of life;  He that cometh to me shall never hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”

You are already blessed – receive it, be nourished by it and let the awesome stuff of God flow to and through you!

Blessed From Desperation To Inspiration…

Michael Joe, a follower of Christ Jesus by the will of God and through the leading of His Spirit.  To the Saints who are living in the Upstate of South Carolina and who place, express and live out their faith in Christ Jesus.  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Oh how blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every possible spiritual blessing, blessings which we know are waiting for us in the heavenly places in Christ, just as we were chosen in Him before the foundation of the world, that you and I might be holy and blameless before Him.

In His unlimited love, He chose to adopt us as His sons and daughters though Jesus Christ to himself, according to the kind intention of His will and to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely gave to each of us in and through His beloved Son.

In Jesus we have redemption, restoration and relationship through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins and failures, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished on us, not because we have earned it or deserved it, but simply because He loves us.  

In all Heavenly wisdom and Supernatural insight, He made known to us the incredible mystery of His perfect will, according to the kind intention which finds it’s purpose in and through Jesus, with a view to an administration and application suitable to the fullness of the times, that is to the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.

Also in Jesus we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, for the purpose and to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.

In Him, we also after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of our salvation – having also believed, we were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given to us as a pledge and promise of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory as we move from desperation to inspiration.
