God Will Reward Your Faithful Seeking
“Don’t pray that God will teach you how He Loves. Pray that He will fill you with Himself; and that He will love through you……Don’t pray that God will teach you to be filled with joy. Pray that the God of Joy will enter into you. Don’t pray that He will teach how to be peaceful. Ask the God of Peace, the Prince of Peace to fill you. Because if you try to imitate God with your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow for the impartation of Jesus Christ to over take you, suddenly it all works. Because it is Him imitating Himself, and He is very good at being God.”
I honestly get inspired everytime I hear these very words. What better way to explain how the Holy Spirit of God can move through anyone. It also shows us how weak the human instinct/nature is, to be used to combat within the spiritual battle that we are in, between good and evil. Jesus Christ, showed that He was God, through the infliction He endured (in His Torture and Crucifixion), and His Resurrection (which conquered the earthly death that we, as Mankind would have endured, and would have been permanently separated from the Creator). He conquered Sin at the Cross. His Death, unshackled us from Sin, permanently; and reestablished the direct communication and pathway, that was destroyed upon Adam & Eve choosing to sin, upon Evil’s temptation, in the Garden of Eden. So with our freewill, God has given us the CHOICE to follow the Holy Spirit’s Guidance to His Path or not. That is what we have to understand. We have the choice to choose. He has said, that the world’s ways do not lead to His Path to Eternal Life. And the Holy Spirit can only take root within you, when you become broken vessels, which make you to break away from the ways of this world. Think about this for a second. When we go through tough circumstances in our lives, and the world’s solutions have failed to produce solutions to those circumstances, what do many people do? They turn to God, searching for almost a supernatural solution…to present a solution that just comes out of nowhere or has not presented itself, within their environment. We see so many examples of this through Jesus Christ’s Ministry, where many were brought to God, based on the many healings, and miracles He performed.
What many people forget is that FAITH is a gift, that God bestows for faithfully seeking Him and His Ways of Love. It is not something you can study for to pass a test. In fact, we undergo tests/trials to see how worthy we are to receive this Holy Gift. And this is a lifelong process. It’s not a one time deal, that you pass in one instance or circumstance. It is a culmination of many. To bring us back to the perfection that we were originally created to be, as initially seen in Adam and Eve, before they sinned; we have to be constantly tested, to refine us back to the gems that we were created to be. And God has clearly said this, within the Last Books of the Holy Bible. To what extent? Well, as a Christian I believe that Jesus Christ came to earth to be an example for us as Mankind, as to what God expects of our lives, while we live on this earth. While we all have the purposes we were born to do, on this earth, which were determined since the time we were conceived in our mother’s womb (and Jesus Christ was born to live and die, to become the Salvation of Mankind from evil, permanently), did not Jesus show us that we defend God’s Laws of Love, to the point of death? Now is that everyone’s final destination in their spiritual journey? Maybe not. But God asks us this, to see how genuine our choice to follow Him, is. To see if we truly separated ourselves from the world’s ways, which are not of Him. Only He can see the heart and soul, which is a reflection of this.
Remember God’s ways are of LOVE, PEACE, and NONVIOLENCE. And remember when we become born again, in mind, heart, and soul; we will be faithful in seeking God in every aspect of our lives; and that it will not waiver, despite the world surrounding us. It is being faithful in seeking truth…
