In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.
This has always been one of my favorite Scriptures.
Don’t get it twisted not everyone is a child of God ( 1 John 3:7-10), there are many who could never declare such things as this passage. Yet for those of us who belong to the KING of kings, the LORD of Heavens Armies we have such power and life in the Word of God.
Don’t get me wrong I am very much aware of the darkness in this world today. I dont have on blinders to agendas and pretenders BUT what I also conceptualize more and more daily is the truth that God living in me means something. It means ALOT. I am no longer obligated to keep sinning without power to choose holiness (Romans chapter 6 and chapter 8), I am no longer bound to fear (2 Timothy 1:7) and I can live free to worship and serve Jesus as LORD.
Please hear what I am saying:
Faith in Jesus (Yeshua) produces a new life, new identity, new vision, new purpose. I usto live for what I wanted but now my wants are more and more aligned with what God wants.
Have you thought about what God wants for you? Examine the things upheld in Scripture; peace, joy, holiness, dignity, strength, honor, etc. This is the call of God. He calls us to communion with Him. That communion is opposite of what we have without Him. Without God we have a world telling us to smoke, drink, club, curse, glorify the degrading of our body by having sex with multiple people of all genders, be greedy, steal, lie, be selfish.
Do you see the type of people the world produces? There is no dignity or true class. There is a bunch of mess and unpleasantness wrapped in that. On the contrary the people God births are honorable, trustworthy, helpful, loving, positive, peaceful, all around dope.
Lets walk in the Spirit so that we prove to be His type of people.
My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be My disciples.
