Hello World …. Spiritual Depth Precept # 17

How  is your heart?  Can you tell if your heart is at peace or is it disturbed with the heaviness of the world? What is the desire of your heart? Are you searching this world over  and can’t seem to find your true love? Have you searched your heart for answers and found none? Are you longing for a change in your life but don’t know where to look, or what you are looking for, or when change might fall on your side of the trail you are walking…. Maybe I have an answer that might be just what you are seeking:

Someone once told me that they wished they could fly up into heaven and bring Christ down to the earth so they could follow Him around and receive whatsoever they asked for from His hand at that moment. I say, that makes about as much sense as thinking you can descend into the deep to bring Christ up from the dead…

The bible says the WORD is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart: that is the Word of Faith.  And if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved, for with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  That being true, if you are saved then you have power to speak and He will answer.  I believe that a saved heart longing to change always gets God’s attention. I know that when I cry out in faith, seeking Him, asking Him, knocking at  His door:  He always answers me.  ALWAYS….He is always near me, pouring out to me his mercy,  His love and His grace, into my heart so that I have the petition I ask for.  His word tells me to come to Him with a clean heart and just ask and I will receive that which I ask for.

‘I don’t believe it is that easy,’ you say…  Well, it happens to me all the time.  Once He asked me, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do what you asked me?’  I said, “YES LORD, I believe.”  I had been diagnosed with lupus. All symptoms, test results, everything said I had lupus, but I asked God to take away this from me and when I said, “YES LORD to His question to me, and I went back to the doctor for re-test, and complete check up: the doctors could not find any thing at all.  When I got staph infection in my sinus cavity and the test were positive  five times in a row and the doctor was scared to death that I would die because I was antibiotic resistant to all antibiotics they tested for use on me. He tried a very strong antibiotic on me that he said he hoped for the best;  it was given intravenously for 7 days in large doses only to find out when they tested for the staph,  it still active in my sinus.   The doctor came to  tell me – I am sorry there is nothing else we can do and it is just a matter of time…. before…

I stopped him there and told him flatly — “you have done all you can do, now let Jesus do what He can do. Tomorrow I have a friend who has called me to come to her house. She said Jesus is going to heal me after I submit to her washing my feet and prayer.’

 I went to the friend who washed my feet and prayed the prayer of healing over me on a Friday night.  I had to go back to the doctor on Monday for a third test to see how much the staph had grown before they admitted me to the hospital and when I went in for the test, they asked me to stay until results were back.  A couple of hours later, they asked me if they could do another test and I agreed and in an hour, the doctor came in and told me. “We did the test twice to make sure that we did not screw it up the first time, and I want to tell you first that I just received Jesus as my savior because you have no staph infection in your sinus. I know we did not heal you. He had too. Last Thursday you still had the infection, Friday you told me was the day you were going to be prayed for and today is Monday. This is the first time I have every seen a miracle and I believe that the Jesus you told me about did exactly what you said He would do, that is why I can tell you I am your brother in Christ today.”

God’s ways are not our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts so why don’t we just believe what He says and let Him do what He does best and obey His Word and watch Him answer our prayers. Simply ask Him to forgive you and give Him all the ugly sinful stuff in your life and when you do that, repent, turn from the stuff that holds you captive to this old world and step into the Spirit filled life He offers you. He gave us Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, which is His direction book that tells us what He expects of us while here. He even gives us examples of people living here over the years and how screwed up their lives were and how He delivered them out of all their trouble just because they believed what He told them.    FAITH it and see what He can do for you.

All He wants is a relationship with you. Child to Father, Father to Child. You are the joy of His heart if you obey and listen and do it. It isn’t hard, trust me–obedience is better that sacrifice…He will restore His relationship with anyone who desires to change and trust Him with all their life.

I know, I believe, I DO because He is my  I AM.           Matthew 9:29  …..According to your faith be it unto you..
