Never be blinded by fake feelings…the ones that seem to come and go.  Always keep your eyes on Truth – the constant unchanging Truth.  And that is God.  When you keep your eyes on him, no feelings of hurt, anger, despair, frustration, emptiness or whatever negative spirit can have its way with you. Because there is only one name that can demolish them all and that is calling on the precious and sweet name of Jesus. Everything shall bow and has no place torturing or tearing us down when his name is flowing freely in our minds and his goodness.  A name that brings life! And with life comes strength and power! Allow God to be the root that is dug so deep within that nothing else has room to sprout up, break us away from him and then eventually kill us. 

Focus on Truth today!!

Lately fasting has been on my mind. I have been reading a lot about what Jesus did on the cross for us and really have gained a true understanding that it is not about me or my actions. It’s all about what Christ did for me on the cross. He was beaten, bruised, slain and then died for my sins. He took the sting out of death. If we began to place our righteous on what we do be-it good works, fasting to get those big blessings, giving to the poor to earn something from God. Then his death is in vain. If we could do it our self, then there wouldn’t be a need for a savior. “Galatians 2:21: I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.”

So this is why this morning when I was praying, I prayed for a clear understanding as to the importance of fasting. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and revealed that fasting is another action by man and it is not about man. It is about the son, what he did for us on the cross. Our depriving of food, things, or even actions cannot make or force God to bless us indeed, abundantly or all that we can imagine. It is what Christ did on the cross and our understanding of his Love alone that will allow him to open the flood gates of heaven and pour us out a blessing that we don’t have room enough to receive. Receive that today! “Ephesians 3:20: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”

The Spirit continued on…Fasting is tradition and traditions are religion which is not line in with the Truth. That it is all about the love of God and him sending his only begotten son to die on the cross for a sinful lost world who could not save itself. He knew that we couldn’t do it on our own so he sent us a savior. We can’t take away what has already been done for us and we can’t make or force God to bless us because that battle was already fought on the cross the day he died and was resurrected. So your abundance is in him and all you have to do is ask and believe and receive that in the name of Jesus Christ. “John 14:13 – And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

Once you have accepted this in your heart, watch the overflow of our savior pour into your life. A transformation will take place! I am a witness of that. “John 8:32: And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Hallelujah! Receive that today! There is nothing you can do to earn his love, his unmerited favor. There is no mistake to big that God cannot make right and no mistake to big that will cause him to leave you. Remember that it is not about you and your wrong doings or your marvelous actions. He will never turn his back on you or leave you. “Deuteromy 31:6 – Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

It is about his son Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:24 – He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

When God sees you, he sees you as beautiful because we are covered by the blood of the lamb. He sees us as perfect because of what his son did on the cross for us. He doesn’t see our actions. Now believe on that and watch the fullness of God transpire in your life. “Ephesians 3:19 NLT – May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

I love you all so much and pray that God’s truth will rein in your life today.
