“Divinely Designed”

Without God’s “active presence in your life, life will naturally steal away your identity. This is true for believers and non-believers alike. Life is to be good however it is also filled with struggle, pain, loss, disappointment, and rejection.

Jesus came because we are lost. We need His active presence in our life. Life has a way of stealing from us who we are, however we are brought to the presence of God in order to be restored.

This restoration does not come by way of an experience within itself. You need to hear what God is saying to you and you must receive it by faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. (Romans 10:17) We do not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

You have to be in His Word. You have to be willing to receive from the other people God brings into you life such as in church and through how you connect with those of His church. You have to be chasing after everything He says to you so the mystery of you begins to manifest. You cannot be a Word unto yourself. You can’t make yourself into something that God has not made you to be. You are to become what God says that you are and what He has spoken over you.

The Word is the catalyst to our ability to be filled by His divine purpose and destiny which breathes the inspiration into us. God’s breath (His Holy Spirit, that restores our identity, yet are we aligning with his Word to receive that breath?

“And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams;
even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. (Acts 2:17-18 ESV)

To prophecy is to “speak” what God has/is speaking or has spoken to you. As sons and daughters of God, we are to speak into life what God is saying about who we are. We thus become God’s voice in the earth. All things are possible to those who believe.
(Mark 9:23) Receiving God’s Word to you and prayer are just part of the picture. It is being active in the presence of God where the flesh is silenced that our level of authority increases.

I believe God, therefore I am what He says. Everything I am intended to possess in life will come by what I believe. What I believe will be revealed by what I speak. What I speak will determine where and how I will be directed in life. What you believe is what you become.

What does your testimony speak of you? You are either agreeing with God or you are resisting him. Are you actively in the presence of God or seeking such? They who worship God must do so in Spirit and in Truth. Some worship the contrary; what they know not. Don’t be given over imagination and what you understand or think in your mind. You need a greater authority than yourself.

You can only be what God made you to be, not necessarily what you want to be. Why compete with that which is not you? He who compares him or herself with another is not wise. Remember that you are uniquely designed by God. God desires that you be thus as He designed. Don’t therefore resign to less. So where are you right now?

“Once dry; can new life Begin Again?”

Peace, bringing it all to peace, whatever may be raging around you in this moment.
The storm surrounding you, let it break at at the Name of Jesus!

Stilling and calling the sea and the raging within to cease as the waves are encapsulated, swirling into a slowing calm. Just as Jesus calmed the stormy seas of Galilee, He makes the darkness surrounding you tremble and flee.

In returning and rest shall you be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. In your moments of your greatest weakness is His strength perfected in you. A return to His original design in you. A story crafted by the Master unfolds in you right now. A story to to be lived and walked out in the earth, right where you are, as you are, becoming who God created you to be.

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1) The darkness was dispersed and Light became.

“The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)

Your cry may be; “Let me hear joy and gladness; and let the bones that you have broken rejoice” is being answered right now. Your sins are forgiven you at the Cross. “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10) Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. (Psalm 51:11)

Jesus makes the darkness tremble and all fear is silenced. Breathe in the Living Word of God that is being spoken into you , then call these bones to live, call these lungs to sing and once again, I will praise Your name, Jesus!

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

The Word of God spoken over and into you comes alive. His Word quickened into your mortal flesh transforms from the inside out. “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
(2 Corinthians 3:18)

“Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6) By his spirit and through His Word you are made alive. Can these bones live live again, you ask? Well behold!

Jesus; grace and truth came through Him; The true light, which gives light to everyone, came into the world. To all who receive him, who believe in his name, he gives the right to become children of God, who are born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. Born again from above.
(John 1:12)

“If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,” there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.” (Jeremiah 20:9) May a new fire of God arise within and new life begin, in Jesus’ name!

After Jesus’ resurrection, on the road to Emmaus, those who walked with Him along the way, did not His words burn within them?

Jesus, the name above every other name, Jesus, the only one who could ever save;
worthy of every breath we could ever breathe, brings to life the dry bones once again.

Worthy of every song we could ever sing, worthy of all the praise we could ever bring. Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe, we breath in His Word.

Holy, there is no one like You, there is none beside You, Jesus, Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are and fill me with Your heart. I will build my life upon Your love, as is a firm foundation putting my trust in You alone, I will not be shaken because the bones that were once dead and dry are made alive once again.

God in these last days has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature. (Hebrews 1:2,3)

Peace, bringing it all to peace, Jesus; Your name is a light that the shadows can’t deny, Your name cannot be overcome, is alive forever lifted high and cannot be overcome. New life is begun, Breath O Breath of God now breathe!
