Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war (Rev. 19:11).
His name is Faithful and True – what an amazing God we serve! In Jesus we have all we need – not only to survive, but to enjoy life to the fullness of what God has planned for us!
He is all we need. How sad it is for me to see that so many people find their comfort in people, rather than receiving their comfort from God alone. I wonder if you know that no man can comfort you, or be there for you the way your Abba is there for you. He is the Father to the Fatherless and forever He is faithful! Most of all: He is the lover and healer of the brokenhearted.
His love endures forever. His love is pure. His love is a liquid love that falls into all the broken parts of your heart. He is a shelter for those who have a broken and contrite heart and a fragile soul. He is the one who holds us all together. He is the one who reigns in our lives with peace, joy and healing in His wings. His love is true and pure. The love of man will always fall short of perfection… because man is imperfect. But His love endures forever – because He is faithful and true!
So many Christians find their comfort in each other. There is nothing wrong with fellowship, but there can be only one – only one – to whom your life belongs. People can hurt you with their words and with their deeds, but God is the healer of those wounds. I am sure it quenches the Sprit of God when we put our trust in man – in the opinions and doctrines of men, rather than in Him.
There is no one like You, Lord God! You are stronger than our emotions, feelings, mind and ideas. Your word is always true, and You are always faithful. Only You can satisfy! You reign in awesome power over all of creation. There is truly none like You!
Who is the One who brings a smile to your face every day? Who is the One who fills your spirit with love? No man can do that – only the Spirit of God that lives in us and through us can cause real joy and lasting peace.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor (Psalm 8:3-5).
All God’s ways are good. When are we going to get to that place where we are so tapped into Holy Spirit that He is the one who leads us? When He leads he doesn’t use our reasoning minds, but rather our hearts filled with passion for Him to guide us. Maybe that is why so many people feel they need a leader; because they follow man instead of the voice of Holy Spirit.
Lord, we choose to trust in You and You alone. Where You go – I will go, what You love – I will love, how You serve – I will serve, where you stay – I stay. Not according to man’s way – but Your ways.
In this hour so many manmade Kingdoms will fall. If your life is not built on a life-giving, living and passionate love relationship with God you will fall into various traps, because you will lend out your ears to the opinions of mere men. I beg you today not to put your eyes on me, but only on God. Let Holy Spirit be your teacher, and let pure love lead you, like Paul says in 1 Timothy 1:5: Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith.
It is so easy to fall into the traps of life if you don’t have faith in God. Come, now is the time for faith to rise – Faith in God!!! Your love for Him and your oneness in Him gives you faith. If you haven’t yet tasted His love and His faithfulness you can be caught up in manmade ideologies and doctrines in this last hour. If the Rock of Ages is not your foundation, who is? Whose doctrine is?
In Him is joy, love and peace… not confusion and fear. I see how people feel empty without other people. What will you do if it is just you and Holy Spirit? Do you know that He is your best friend living inside of you? How can you feel alone? Be still inside and know that there is s a river that flows from the throne. This river of life will refresh you in a new way, but go to the King of all ages for your comfort. You will keep on facing challenges of emptiness until you realize that the fullness of life is not found in external things, but it is inside of you.
Get the words you speak and thoughts in line with God’s Word: “Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out…” (Num. 13:30-32).
Take note of the words Caleb used when the Israelites were on the brink of receiving God’s promise, but still needed faith to receive the Promised Land: ‘WE ARE WELL ABLE TO OVERCOME IT’. The other ten spies said: ‘We are not able to overcome.’ One group (Joshua and Caleb) believed God and were sure of His protection and provision, while the other group was negative and fearful. As we follow this story to the end, we will see that each group got exactly got what they professed. Each group’s destiny was settled by their words:
Then the LORD said: “I have pardoned, according to your word; but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD— because all these men who have seen My glory and the signs which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have put Me to the test now these ten times, and have not heeded My voice, they certainly shall not see the land of which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who rejected Me see it. But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it (Num. 14:20 – 24).
By his positive confession, Caleb settled his destiny for the good.
Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the LORD, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you: The carcasses of you who have complained against Me shall fall in this wilderness, all of you who were numbered, according to your entire number, from twenty years old and above. Except for Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun, you shall by no means enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in (Num. 14:28-30).
Notice the words: “as you have spoken in My ears – so I will do to you.” In effect God is saying: You have settled what I will do to you by the words that you speak.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue. How much more clearly can this principle be illustrated? When you focus on all the negative things and you keep on speaking it that is what you will get.
Or you can focus on God – on Him who is “Faithfull and True” – and speak life into the dead bones of your situation. You will then receive life as you are guided by the One Who created you and loves you, and knows you inside out.
Let’s start living according to the principles of God’s Kingdom; then we will enjoy life the way God planned for us to live… a life lived to the full – all in HIM!
For years I kept on confessing that God has a wonderful woman kept apart especially for Aldo. One who would love the imperfect, perfectly – because to love the imperfect perfectly is true love! (In the world's eyes Aldo still might seem imperfect, but through the eyes of love he is perfect.) The faithful and true One sent Chantelle because my words confessed life. My words confessed that God is a wonderful God that has the best in store for us. Yes, even if you are not perfect, God’s plans are perfect for your life. Today we are eating the fruits of our words of faith.
Bless the loving God,
