“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand forever.”
What happens when we are brought to a Kingdom focus? The rest of the wordly ways can begin to fade, and we can begin to hone in on the One thing that matters: the Trinity- Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. As we look to God the Father, He will help us to see things through His eyes. If we can look at things from His point of view, it will shape us to a newer, stronger place of wellbeing and tenacity we never knew was in us. The Kingdom can open the very gates of Heaven toward us if we trust and not doubt. If we trust and know that He is good and that our Heavenly Father will fulfill His promises because His Word says so, we can relax and enjoy the ride. If we follow where He shows us and asks us to follow, Heaven’s gates will open wide and come alive at the sound of our name. Why: because we have said “yes” to Jesus. No power in hell can stop God’s authority on your life if you are God’s child (by saying yes to Christ).
By accepting Jesus as your Savior, God’s righteous opinion of you is always perfection, because of His Son (Heb 10:14). Jesus was the perfect sacrifice we needed to enter Heaven (John 14:6), and as we look unto Christ for salvation, we can rest and know God will never fail us. He is peace, light, and life to all who call on Him in truth. All of His promises are “yes and amen” to those who love Him (2 Cor 1:20). He loves because He chose to love us first. Christ served as the propitiation for our sins (1 John 2:2) and because He did so, all of Heaven declares you are His forever; a redeemed Child of the Most High. Break free of any remaining shackles you feel tied to by resting first, calling out to Him, and waiting for His answer. As we wait on God, we’ll find He’s been waiting on us all along to trust Him for His perfect timing and His perfect way.
Because God is love His character cannot change, and we can know all of Heaven declares His glory through the Son by the power of the Holy Spirit. By this power that raised Christ from the dead, we have the same authority to do as Jesus did (John 14:12), and if we believe this we will find Jesus moving in us and through us as He always has, all throughout time. It takes boldness and courage, but God sees us as He sees His Son. Therefore, we must begin to see ourselves as God sees us, or else we are walking in unintentional sin. Anything not of faith is sin (Rom 14:23), so if we aren’t viewing ourselves or matters as God does, we are not looking properly through His eyes. We can learn to do this if we ask Him for help, seek Him diligently, and let Him transform our mind. It is then and only then we will grow, understand, and move ahead in our faith. Faith is moved by our belief in God’s goodness. The rest is up to Him. Trust.
