God IS Absolutely Good!

There are so many things rattling around in my head today, I’m waiting for it to settle and find out where to begin. First, fasting is going well, due to the grace of the Lord and my choosing to be flexible to what the Spirit is saying and what my husband is saying and trusting the Lord to balance it all out. It isn’t about food/no food, it’s about where my heart is at. Fasting is about denying my flesh so I can hear the Spirit of God more clearly.

The last week or so, John works steadily, but at a relaxed pace, on the remodel of our extra bedroom and is ice fishing with a friend today, so I endeavor to use my time by myself wisely, an excellent opportunity to work on this post. I have already taken Communion with Experiencing Jesus Through Communion by Beni Johnson. It is Day 13 and I am learning again how Communion proclaims and applies the divine healing and wholeness Jesus bought by His body and blood sacrifice. Beni talks about people who believe healing and miracles ceased when the first apostles died; ‘cessationists’. Beni says:

“People can argue with theology, but your testimony is your most powerful tool… When we take Communion, remembering what Jesus accomplished on the cross, we are repeating the ultimate testimony again and again.” (page 67)

Do you trust that God is absolutely good all the time? Yesterday I began reading Preparations For a Move of God… In Your Life by Sandra G. Kennedy. What she shares are basic tenets of the Christian life. The first chapter “Is Jesus the Son of God?” brings the challenge: If He Is, How Does It Affect Your Life? Get it past your head knowledge and into your heart.

The second chapter “It Takes Faith To Know God” challenge: it’s simple, but do you trust God?

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him,

for he who comes to God must believe that He is,

and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Let us go to “The Lord’s Prayer”

Matthew 6:8 Therefore do not be like them [wondering what you shall eat or wear]. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.

So, we must trust that God knows everything we need before we ask. All we need on earth is already in heaven, which is why Jesus taught us to ask God for what we need and to bring things from heaven down to earth. There is nothing lacking in heaven. Because of Jesus Christ, daily sustenance, complete fulfillment of all our needs, divine healing and divine health and well-being are there for us to appropriate, for that is what heaven is like. When we pray in Jesus’ name, Father God sees us through His Son. Ask God to send down what you need, anything that concerns you. Seek Him and wait patiently for Him to do what you have asked, knowing He rewards those who seek Him, as you trust He will answer. When you ask, God sends angels to do what you ask [see Daniel 9 and Luke 1]. Release them to do it.

God has done all we need through Jesus Christ, our Messiah. As our Father, He wants us to put a demand on Him. God the Father, Son, and Spirit are in close relationship. There is so much love in this trio that they created humans to share that love with. Don’t miss your opportunity to put demands on Him and access what Jesus died to give to us. Going back to Sandra Kennedy’s book, in order to prepare for God to move in your life, you need to get back to basics. I think the most basic thing may be the song we learned as children:

Jesus Loves Me

  1. Jesus loves me! This I know,
    For the Bible tells me so;
    Little ones to Him belong;
    They are weak, but He is strong.
    • Refrain:
      Yes, Jesus loves me!
      Yes, Jesus loves me!
      Yes, Jesus loves me!
      The Bible tells me so.
  2. Jesus loves me! This I know,
    As He loved so long ago,
    Taking children on His knee,
    Saying, “Let them come to Me.”
  3. Jesus loves me still today,
    Walking with me on my way,
    Wanting as a friend to give
    Light and love to all who live.
  4. Jesus loves me! He who died
    Heaven’s gate to open wide;
    He will wash away my sin,
    Let His little child come in.
  5. Jesus loves me! He will stay
    Close beside me all the way;
    Thou hast bled and died for me,
    I will henceforth live for Thee.
