And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.”Mark 14:36
14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!
16The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.
17And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.
18[But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and [g]for us and [h]conferred on us!
26 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
27And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will.(F)
28We are assured and know that [[j]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into His plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called According to [His] design and Purpose.
As we continue on our Spiritual Journey Daily with our Lord, There Will be many moments where we shout out to God to Please Take this Cup Away from us!
It gets hard, frustrations push us to think that 'another way' will be easier....
And True, 'another way' is easier for the flesh.
But for Kingdom minded people--Jesus Is The Only Way!
So, we shout out in frustration, tears, pain, hurt, weariness to our Lord for HELP...And at this moment, we are moved out of His way-so that His Holy Spirit will be able to take over as He should have been in the first place.
As I Encourage myself, I Also Encourage you--Daily As our Lord Showers me in His Love--I pass on His Love to you my friends, my sisters & brothers.
That we Should in these times of wanting release from the responsibilities Given to us from our Father, our Mother God, Because RIGHT NOW, it all feels Too Great!
**I'm not talking about people that make their own decisions and choices, I"m talking to the people that have been given and received His Great Calling to Serve Him**
Here Is the moment Where we Need To Withdraw ourselves from all surroundings, noise, obligations, and people And Seek that Calmness and REST that Communion with Him Abundantly Provides us!
Our Lives know of No Greater Joy than we can Find by conversing in companionship and communion with Jesus!
When our souls remind us that we Are His--and our souls Go Home to Him to Rest in Him, then our Real Lives Begin....
We Are Complete In Him!
As we seek to know God, And His Son more and more Every Day that He provides to us--We continue to live Life Eternal.
We Shall grow in learning how immature and childish, how empty our so-called living was Before we began to Live each Day in our New Life Eternal.
I Encourage you all in the name of Jesus, Not to Fear! To do so for any reason is Foolish, like a child with a coin--holding on tightly, worrying about how the rent will be paid, or where the next meal will come from. Foolish for this to worry a person who has a Rich Mother, A Rich Father. Just as we have in God our Mother and Father.
This Work that we have been Given the responsibility to accomplish, (not by ourselves), Is The Work of our Lord--Not Ours! We Need to Trust Jesus For Every Thing, Every Day!
EVERY Day, We Have to Yield to the Working of His Holy Spirit as we deal with things that each day brings to our attention to act upon.
This Is the Only Way He is able to lead us in Righteousness.
If and When we take things into our own hands without the Holy Spirits direction and guidance, we Will Not like the outcome!
*allow the Holy Spirit to remind you of the past times where you handled a matter--how did that turn out for you?**
Please Remember, that everything that we Build on our Foundation Must Always be through His Spirit And NOT our flesh. Truly, if built by our flesh, none of it will endure, no one else will be helped, and we shall fall when it falls.
In Every Thing that we are Called to do, we are to do it to build and establish His Kingdom on Earth as it Is In Heaven.
I Cor 3:11-13
11For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
12But if anyone builds upon the Foundation, whether it be with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
13The work of each [one] will become [plainly, openly] known (shown for what it is); for the day [of Christ] will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done.
That's Right, His Will and Purposes Not ours, not other peoples, not the worlds, not fate, not the enemy's....BUT the Will of our Mother/Father God in the name of Jesus have we been Called and Chosen to serve as She has Divinely pre-ordained us to be.
Remember that we Seek His Truth In Every Thing For Every Day...His Truth!
Aren't You Glad that Jesus allowed His Spirit to control His flesh? If He had done otherwise, there would be no need for this Encouraging Word to us...He would have Not gone to that Cross in Complete Service to God.....
Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus, my Lord and my Good Shepherd, because of You, I Live! Amen!
