Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
“My Grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.
Does this describe your or my life? I doubt it! But Paul had revelation that the power of God came through utter dependence on the Father. If he was strong in and of himself, in areas, he would self-confident and self-reliant. He would be living out of his own flesh and his own abilities. So, for this reason, he delighted in all of his weaknesses and hardships…
When there are weak areas in our own life, bondages, these strongholds become stronger than our wills. We need the power of God. The Good News is that His power is there for every difficulty we face. We just need the revelation by the Holy Spirit of how problem is in the Spiritual heavenly realm. In this realm; problems, weaknesses… do not exist. We are ‘More than Conquerors’ in every area of our life, right now, because we are In Christ, one with Him, as He is! We need to get deep and powerful revelation of the Truth of who we are in the Spirit realm by the Holy Spirit.
When we are facing no problems, our hunger for the Lord is less, but when the battle rages in our lives, we become more much more dependent on God and on His supernatural and miraculous power! The enemy is trying to steal, kill, destroy and crush us with the difficulties, but God uses them to work into us His loving Grace, Power, Love, Joy, Presence… deeper into our lives! If, in our stress, we turn to the flesh, the enemy will try to destroy us, but if we are abiding in the Spirit, Holy Spirit strengthens us in Christ! We then act and manifest like who we really are in the Spirit!
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28. This verse has been sooooooo misunderstood by much of the church world! God does NOT give us cancer or kill our children and love ones to teach us lessons! If an earthly parent gave cancer or killed one their children, they are locked up in prison for life, but people flippantly say that God does things! WRONG!!!!!!!!! If that was true, we would always be extremely fearful in approaching God. I won’t know if God was going to slug me to teach me a lesson, or if was going to kiss me and show me His Loving-Kindness!
“There is NO FEAR in Love, but perfect Love, casts out fear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Paul had the revelation of God being our “Abba Father”, or Daddy or as I affectionately call Him, “Pops”. I know God is the “Great I Am”, but He wants His children to snuggle up to Him and call Him Daddy!!!!!! We were created for intimacy with the Father, not for fearful religiousocity! “Or do you show contempt for the riches of His Kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God’s LOVING-KINDNESS leads you repentance?” Romans 2:4. “Let us approach the throne of Grace with confidence (confidence in the Father’s infinite, Love, mercy, compassion, forgiveness, kindness…), so that we may receive mercy and find Grace in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:12.
So how do we get our weaknesses to turn to strengths? We drink of the River of Delights! We drink deeply of the Father’s outpouring of supernatural and miraculous Love! We fellowship deeply with Holy Spirit! We behold the Lord’s glory with all of our heart and see ourselves in His Glory perfect and Jesus is! We just keep going deeper and deeper in the Spirit until we manifest heaven on the earth! Are you ready to flood your weaknesses and your whole life with the heavenly glory, set your heart on where you are seated In Christ, as He is? SHALOM!!!!!!!
