This message is a continuation of yesterday’s message.
We are talking about God’s ways that He provides for us, His chosen people so that we will not following the path of this world in our daily lives.
1. In God’s way there always are His INVOLVEMENT, DIRECTIONS and GUIDANCES we need to live in truth.
2. In God’s way there always are the position and mentality that we need to grow as a REPRESENTATIVE OF GOD’S CHILD.
The figure of the Holy Spirit will HELP, ACCOMPANY and RE-MOLD ourselves as children of God! Just as the Holy Spirit was with Jesus through lived as a child of God, so now the Holy Spirit will guide us so that we are enabled to live as children of God:
a. A child of God will bring VALUES (life values), PRINCIPLES and LIFE STANDARDS from the Father, not from himself. Just as Christ, He was willing to empty Himself (Philippians 2: 5-9) and took fully and grew what He received from the Father as the foundation of belief, as CORE VALUES for Himself (Matthew 4: 4). In fact, children’s nature always represents their Father (John 5:19).
b. A child of God will bring POWER and FATHER’S AUTHORITY. Because he represents the Father, it is appropriate for him to carry the power and authority of his Father. (Philippians 2: 9-11).
c. A child of God lives to manifest the FATHER’s AGENDA (John 4:34). He learns to die from his personal agenda and interests and learns to set his life to follow Father’s agenda which is in the spiritual house.
d. A child of God will live by THE FATHER’s PROVISION (Matthew 6: 8). As a good Father, He always provides whatever His children need. In both supernatural and natural ways, the Father always provides our needs, even before those needs asked!
3. In God’s way there always is a BREAKTHROUGH spirit that you need.
We will be able to break free and fight Anything that impedes our life’s journey. Because I am the Way! You will enjoy a victorious and breakthrough life. (John 14:6, Isaiah 43:19).
4. In God’s Way, there always is the GRACE that you need.
There is no more dead-end because grace will enable us from what is impossible becomes possible, what is not exist to the existence, because for God nothing is impossible! (Luke 1:37)
5. In God’s way there always is PROGRESS, a real GROWTH for those who step in it.
Walking on the way of truth will always make PROGRESS. How come? Because every STEP OF ACCURACY will bring ACCELERATION. It’s like a car regularly brought into the service station and maintained thoroughly. Old oil and old spare parts are replaced with new ones so that the car is ready to deliver the passenger quickly (acceleration).
It’s a different case with a car that is worn, junk and damaged here and there, it breaks down only after moving for a moment (there are parts failure ), or if it can go far (seems successful), eventually it will breakdown and requires an overhaul. Inevitably, live in inaccuracy must bring consequences.
Proverbs 4:19 (NASB) “The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know over what they stumble.”
Proverbs 4:18 (NASB) “But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.”
The way of God is like a quiet road, because it is far from famous and it doesn’t taste like success, but more like the death to the flesh and considered foolish for the world. regardless, realize and believe when we walk in it, in fact, God is renovating our lives wholly from the old creation into a new creation. We are brought into the essence of the purpose of our creation, as children of God who glorify His name!
Isaiah 43:18-21 (NKJV) “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert. The beast of the field will honor Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I give waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My people, My chosen. These people I have formed for Myself; They shall declare My praise.”
