The Power of a Heart!
When most people think of a heart they tend to think of blood pumping through the body. I find it fascinating that in these end days God has displayed His glory in ways that most people look right past. Did you know that we are considered to be one body in Christ?
1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.
4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function,
5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith;
Just as the prideful lusts exist in the flesh, it also exist in the spiritual as well. Too many times in my life I use to compare myself to others. I would see the way someone looked or appeared to be and compare what they had to what I thought I had. Not until the past five years or so did God take the physical comparing urge from me. It took me realizing that I am just as good as everyone but at the same time not better than anyone. Now in the past three years of learning how to submit to God and His Kingdom I have learned that in the spirit there are so many gifts and people are at different levels. This has nothing to do with age, it is all up to the individual’s faith. When we learn to humble ourselves in the flesh it is different in the spirit. It takes humbling your whole being to get the measure of faith that builds us up in the sight of the Lord. Reflecting the power of God starts by submitting to the one He gave Lordship too-Jesus the Christ. We begin a journey that will never end and for the Kingdom to come it has to be Thy (God’s) will be done. In the name of Jesus we will prevail because this is the promise of God Himself.
Romans 16:27- to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever. Amen.
1 Corinthians 1:9 -God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 8:6 -yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.
1 Corinthians 15:57 -but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 2:14 -But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.
2 Corinthians 3:4 -Such confidence we have through Christ toward God.
In these amazing facts lay mysteries that have only been revealed in our time. Some say that people have been saying Jesus is returning in every generation since the ascension. Well of course if you have come to realize the truth in what Jesus did for you then you should be expecting His return. They say home is where the heart is and once you become a child of God through Jesus then you should long for heaven and feel home sick at times. The beauty of our time is that it really is the end days. The world revolves around the chosen ones of God. This has nothing to do with where you are born physically. What it has to do with is your heart and spirit reborn under the blood covenant of Jesus. Some people in these end days claim to know Jesus but in reality they only know about Him and the God Jesus served.
24 Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God?
25 “For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
26 “But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’?
27 “He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken.”
God is showing Himself in all things and until the past twenty years especially, we people in the flesh could not see the things that others never got to see at all. Planes, television, telephones, cars, and so much more have broken open things that all other time frames in the history of this world never got to see. Science means “knowledge” and this goes so much deeper than most people think!!!!!!
We know exactly how big this world is only to find out that the universe cannot even be fathomed. God has taught me that it wasn’t Jews who crucified Jesus, it was gentiles all along. Gentile means “one without God” and Jews are a “chosen one of God” so in reality the fact that the men couldn’t see Jesus for who He was made them a gentile at heart. The physical aspects of where they were born couldn’t even change the fact that there hearts were hard. This goes for all people today and in the power of God’s heart for the world He has displayed His work in a little spot of this earth so that all the world could do what they wanted over all these 6000 years, but when it is all said and done God will protect what He said He would. Israel and the piece of land that was promised by God. For all of you people who doubt this mighty God and His Christ I hope you can submit your whole heart to Him because the time is coming for Him to display His Glory in a way the world has never seen. Most people only live for what is seen still and think that the physical is what is important. WOW, people are missing out with their doubting hearts and God has shown me that this kind of heart is the reason Jesus was crucified. It was the unbelief of the men/women that didn’t allow them to see Jesus for who He really was and better yet the plan of God for what it really is. In the body of Christ there is one unified body and each individual has a place. Did you know that in our bodies doctors have figured out that we are just as complex inside as the galaxy we live in? Each individual cell has its own role to play and while there are different groups of cells, all cells have one thing in common. They all carry oxygen in them! This is awesome in so many ways but the one that stands out to me is that no matter where we are in our walk with Jesus, we can all be the witness we need to be. Take the breath of life to the broken people as we can do work for the Kingdom as one. Don’t be a cell that dies off due to unbelief, take the breath of life to the world and in doing so you will strengthen the body of our Christ in ways only you can. Satan wants you to see first and doubt if you don’t see. God wants you to know that if you close your eyes and trust Him and His Christ then you will see more than the eye could ever reveal-! Go all the way back up to the first verse on this paper and realize that it isn’t your physical body that God wants like religion has made people believe, it is your spiritual worship to God that sets you free to show your heart to God. In this God can measure how He will use you for the spiritual Kingdom not this physical world! If you truly believe that being a part of some group and doing good works is the basis for how God is measuring you then you are badly mistaken just as those who were there at the time of the crucifixion of our savior. Now don’t get me wrong as I am not saying that all people involved in the church are mistaken, it is just the ones who don’t have their heart in it. It isn’t for me to worry about as I am not the judge any more than you are, but calling a dog a cat is just as ignorant as sitting on the truth that holds people back from the love of Christ. We all have to be transparent with God and in this it means that we will learn to be transparent with people as well knowing that who we are is what God intended all along. Our mistakes can be molded by God into His Glory so that we will shine like the lights we were called to be. The power of the heart isn’t displayed from anything we do or think we do, it is what we allow God to do through us. It will hurt and bring pain at times but it will never be to the extent of what our savior went through for us. I know now that no matter what this world says or does it cannot take away my salvation. I have already died so they can kill my flesh but they will never kill what I believe unless I let them. The lies of the devil don’t have any place in my heart and life anymore. I serve a King that has not been caught and will never be caught. My King loves me and He intercedes for me when I fall short of the glory of this mighty God. Jesus picks me up helps wipe away the dirt and wipes my tears as He never leaves me, it was always I who chose to not see Him for the mighty King He truly is! The words I have been given to write are to help edify the body of my Christ and urge all who read these words to close your eyes and give Him your heart. The disease of the world will disappear because the spiritual will always outweigh the physical when we have an undoubting faith. The unseen will manifest to what is seen and in this it will show the world what fruit each of us bare. Love or hate? Heaven or Hell? Truth or lies?
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants.
26 “Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.
27 “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Rest in the Greek means “to be at ease” and anything away from ease is a “dis” “ease”. God wants to instill the power of His heart in our hearts but we first have to give our hearts to His Christ who is the risen King- Jesus of Nazareth. If you are reading these words and feel the tingle of the Holy Spirit in you then hit your knees and bow before the King of heaven and earth. Let your heart be His and in this there will be nothing that can hold you back but your own self. You can let go of the world and begin to inherit the promises of the mighty Father who art in Heaven and He will show up in all things trust in that. Jesus told us all we need to know and the spirit will fill in all the blanks. You have to seek the word of God too prove your heart to Him every day and in this, the words will jump of the page and start to guide you in all things. Don’t worry what was or what is to come because we are in the body that will never die, the body of God’s Christ. Jesus is awesome and He is truly real, as He sits at the right hand of God. Before He ascended He told us these words for all who believe not just those men who walked with Him.
14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
16 “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.
17 “These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.
The power of your heart is in your choices you make every day, in every moment, so allow the savior of all mankind to teach you how to make the right ones. God Bless you all-!!!!
