Connecting to the knowledge of God as the Sovereign One is one of the most hated things by the Devil. Because once we connect to it, we will move into the unlimited dimension of Kingdom power. Whatever we do, God will make it successfull. What didn’t exist, God will call into being. And things we think impossible will be made possible. And truly, all of that could happen only by ‘speaking’ the word
Yes, through the words that proceed from our mouth, all of them could happen! That’s one of the characteristics of God’s governing church!
Matthew 16:18-19 (NASB)
“I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.”
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 18:18-20 (NASB)
“Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”
“Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.”
“For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
(Note: this verse is in the context of rebuking and forgiving our brothers – it’s about having a clean heart, free from all forms of offence, disappointment, and inner conflict)
The Devil will always try to hijack and cut-off our ‘connection and frequency’ with God’s sovereignty. He will exploit the situation, circumstances, and people to pollute our mind and clog our hearts with ‘rubbish’ (negative thoughts, hate, etc).
For so long, many believers take light this method of the Devil. He has successfully deceived us, making us believe that it is normal to harbor irritation, disappointment, and vengeance. As a ‘human’, we have assumed that it is something normal – just our ‘spontaneous attitude’!
If we stay deceived, our heart will keep being polluted by inner conflict. What follows next, our frequency to God’s sovereignty will be ‘severed’. That’s why we never experience God’s sovereignty in our lives anymore.
Therefore, it is vital for us to understand the principle of living as a NEW CREATION.
As a descendant of Adam, it’s normal for us to feel irritated. Because that’s the effect of sin when man fell. Even because of sin, Cain had the heartto kill Abel, his own brother.
Since the incident, irritation that leads to murder keeps manifesting on earth until today.
On the other hand, as NEW CREATIONS, it’s no longer normal for us to harbor irritation (Eph 4:17-32). Because it’s the nature of the old creation. And truly, our old self has passed – dead!
The nature of NEW CREATIONS is full of LOVE, easy to FORGIVE and easy to FORGET! Yes, NEW CREATIONS are PERFECT just like our HEAVENLY FATHER is perfect! (Mat 5:43-48)
Therefore, don’t drown in the Devil’s snares. Don’t become foolish by being fooled by his trickeries again and again. Don’t be trapped by situations, conditions, and people. Because that’s not what we should guard against; they are all outside of our control. The word of God says, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth and put devious speech far from you. Let your eyes look directly ahead and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; turn your foot from evil.” (Prov 4:23-27, NASB)
I believe we are entering the reality and manifestation of GOD’S GOVERNING & REIGNING CHURCH. So, let’s fill our determination, and stay focused in walking with the sovereign God; let’s only do His will (Hebrews 12:1-17). Because God’s plan and will is much more important to harbor in our mind and heart compared to pollution, inner conflict, anger, etc. For we are NEW CREATIONS! We only live for God in Christ Jesus! We are the temple of His Holy Spirit. We are His Temple. We are the Church. We are God’s dwelling place. We must only be filled by the work of His word and Spirit!
Take a real decision to become doers of the word. Then, I believe that we will experience God’s sovereignty in our lives for real. The word that we speak (the word that proceeds from God’s mouth) has the power to create the inexistent into being, and making the impossible possible!
Whatever we do – His plan as one body of Christ – will be made successful! Because we are walking with the sovereign God! #iLoveGod
