Do you ever wonder what Jesus is doing while He is seated at the right hand of God? He is upholding all things by the ” WORD” of His power!
He is up holding ” THE BLESSINGS” of Abraham. He’s upholding all of God’s exceedingly great and precious promises. He’s upholding the victory, authority, healing prosperity and abundant life that have been guaranteed to every believer through the New Covenant.
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. Hebrews 11:8. Think about this question for a few minutes, What If God were to ask you to give up everything that is familiar and move to another country, what would it be most difficult for you to leave behind?
What if like Abram you were blessed with a greater revelation of God’s presence, would that make it worth giving up everything that is familiar to you? When we step out in faith, even though we don’t understand what God has planned, we will experience a more intimate relationship with him. Is there a change that you feel God is prompting you to make at this time? If so, spend this week prayerfully considering what actions you need to take.
Maybe God is not asking you to go to another country and give up everything that is familiar to you, like he did of Abraham. Do you know what God is asking of you? Do you keep saying, “NO” thank you Lord”? Yes, we all have a free will to say, “NO” don’t we? Consider this if your way has not been working, why keep doing it the same way? Instead, why not make a change? Jesus is standing ready to give you a glorious future that can begin today.
Psalm 100:5 says, “For the Lord is good; His mercy’s everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations.” I don’t think that any of us really understand how good God is to us all. When the world rejected His goodness, His everlasting mercy reached out to us. He sent His Son so that we can all rise to a new life that is free of pain and filled with every spiritual blessing.
Take hold of this promise from Gods word today and allow it to transform your thinking. Belief in God’s Word will make a difference in the way that you react to the difficult situations that you meet in life. Instead of allowing disappointments to dominate your thoughts, you can spend quality time in the Word and listen to messages that will help you succeed (Joshua 1:8).
God has an awesome plan for your life that is greater than you can ask or think of. Jeremiah 29:11 (NASB) says, “For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and hope.
