41. Blessed are those who believe (1)

The Gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes. We learned that last week. His amazing work on the cross and His resurrection opened up the way for us to have access to God the Father and because of that we have infinite power available. Ephesians 1:19, 20 confirm that we have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead at our disposal. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God and the fullness of all what that entails is ours for the taking. That is why Romans 8:38, 39 tells us:

"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

When we walk in His Kingdom, we are surrounded by the love of God and if you have the love of God, you have everything life has to offer. God is love and when you have His love you have Him. All of Him. Isn't that amazing? And because we have the fullness of Him, we can agree with Paul:

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

All things will work together for our good when we love God and walk in His love for us. We can walk with faith knowing that Jesus saved us and that death and sin has no more dominion over us:

"Death no longer has dominion over Jesus (and Jesus lives in us). For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." Romans 6:9, 14

The dominion of sin and death has been broken over us by the death of Jesus. We can walk in freedom from that and truly experience the life that Jesus came to give us. He said that He came to give us life and life in abundance. He came so that we can truly breathe for the first time. And day by day we need to walk in that life. We need to walk with His life breathing His oxygen into our veins. The physical oxygen in our atmosphere is not all we need for true life, we need Him. He is the One giving us true life with His love surrounding us, working all things for our good. We need to have faith and believe what is true of us:

"So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham." Galatians 3:9

Blessed are those that believe, not because we are more special than others; no we are blessed because when we believe, we move into the heavenly realm and receive all that we need from there. We move into the very presence of God, we breathe Him in and as we do, we walk as He walked, we do what He did and we reach out as He did. That is being truly blessed indeed.

When you start walking in unison with God, believing what His Word says is true about you and living within His love, everything will work out for your good. You will be blessed indeed. Take a stand today and start believing what is true about you and start living in His Kingdom. In His Kingdom is where you truly belong. This world is no longer your home. Make yourself comfortable in God's presence; you will be so glad you did.

Thank you Father for Your wonderful love that is all-consuming. Thank you for Your Divine Grace saving us from this world. We want to abide in Your presence, because we know that we are safe there and that there all of life's answers lie. Thank you for the privilege that we have to be able to come into Your presence. We love You. Amen
