It’s almost evening time and you’ve had a hard day. You are looking forward to dinner and a moment to just wind down. Take out the time to make a hot cup of tea! Recline yourself in your BEST seat! Oh and don’t forget your BIBLE! There are some things that God wants to reveal to you!
I think a lot about the Word of God, prayer, and fasting. The bible says according to Matthew 4:4: “….., It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Now that is powerful in and of itself! We look to food or the world to gratify, but all we truly need is the Word of God. You see, the Word of God is bread and water. All we have to do is partake of all that it has so that we will live. John 11:26 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” WE MUST BELIEVE THIS! The beautiful thing about Jesus is that He represents Heaven and Earth because He was man and God. This is why He was the perfect sacrifice to atone the sins of humanity. When we lift Him up above our personal interests, circumstances, and offenses, we as partakers invite Him in to invade our deepest areas of affliction. You wanted to curse that guy out on the job for taking your promotion or that vehicle that side swiped you on your way home from the job! You need the Word of God to revive you again, and to wash you clean from the insults of life. Isn’t that amazing? The Word of God can do all these things! Tired of sickness, poverty, depression, pain, and cycles of defeat? THE ANSWER IS JESUS! I hear the old mothers say, “BABY, ALL YOU NEED IS KING JESUS”! Now that may sound cliché to those that have heard it so many times without revelation of what that truly means. You see, religion and tradition has made us so numb to the joy of our salvation that gives us power, strength, and victory over the vices of the enemy! The truth is that joy is an eternal bliss that is never ending because the Word of God NEVER ENDS. It is perpetual and continuous, never ending or changing. The Word of God should revolve around your day as IT REVOLVES AROUND THE WORLD. All things must under subjection to the Word of God! You can command everything to come into alignment with the Word of God! So that depression…. is OVER, MY FRIENDS! The joy that we have as saints is supernatural, but your thoughts will cause you to miss that. We call on the name of Jesus because it sounds holy, but we take the power from it when we fail to remove our prideful armour in His presence. Can those who come before Him in Spirit and in truth come before Him in doubt? God can change what seems to be humanly impossible. Our doubt is our pride, but we must take off doubt and pride, and put on FAITH as we read the Word of God!
I had an awesome time studying and teaching about the spirit of pride. Job 41:15 “His scales are his pride shut up together as with a close seal”. This scripture is talking about the Spirit of Leviathan, “a king over all the children of pride”. As crazy as it sounds, we as humans have scales. These scales are so tight that it is absolutely hard for the Spirit of God to breath into us after we’ve been beaten to death by life. The scales we have represent the armour that we have put in the places of pain. Our pride prevents us from allowing Christ to penetrate those areas of offense. As a result, we walk around scaly and bumpy, rubbing up against others who are innocent in most matters. We live life abrasively and inhumane, all while dissociating from the human condition. The saying, “She rubs me the wrong way” stands correct. Sometimes we give off a hardened embrace. The WORD OF GOD can heal that! You do not have to be overtaken by the rejection that was experience on the job, neither do you have to walk in offense because of the crazy drivers that refuse to stay in their lane! THE WORD CAN HUG ON YOU and make you well! Yes, let it hug you!
If we would just take the walls down and allow the Holy Spirit to breath into us, we can come alive again. Hope is not lost. You can have joy. You can have peace. You can have life! Let us experience the sweetness of His Word! The sweet fragrance of His presence! The sweet touch of His hand in that wounded place! Psalm 34:8 “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him”. In order to experience this touch, we must open up our hearts while trusting in the Word of God! Lay down the frustrations! Put down the offense! Song of Solomon 1:2 says, “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine”. All you need is a spiritual detox as you experience the effects of clean eating with the Word of God! It’s Good For the SOUL!
