Quote: That’s Our Daddy!

5 Oct

“God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.” – Col 1:13-14 – The Message Bible

Thank you Jesus.

Dead end alley?…  Gone.

Dark dungeons?…  Bye bye.

Stuck in pit?…  Out.

Button To Sin stuck on repeat?…  Demolished that dang button once and for all.

Set us up in the kingdom: As the one who reigns. The victor. The conqueror. The overcomer. The one loved by the King.

Quote: He’s All In!

The following thoughts are gleanings from Nancy Magiera’s writings… so fresh and non-religious and ALIVE!  Go ahead, be encouraged.  Take a big deep breath of fresh air. – MLH
_____________________
All In...


Without a breath of hesitation, God put all chips in.

He knew exactly what He’d have to do to win.
Throw it all in.  Nothing held back.
It would cost Him everything.
The winning pot was so poor, so fragile yet somehow so alluring that He couldn’t resist going all in.
It was the likes of me.  I am the prize.  I was His jackpot.

He saw all and embraced me anyway in my condition: Loser.  Reject.  Rebel.  Stained.
He exposed Himself to the very worst possible.
He was glad to do the unspeakable.
He offers me the whole kit and kaboodle as a freebie.  No down payment. No coupon necessary.  No out clause.  No shipping & handling.  No small print.  Just free.
Don’t mess with me!  In fact get your finger out of my face!
He did 2 amazing things for me.
He always sticks up for me.
A wedge can’t come in.  No matter what.
Nothing can wiggle its way in.  Not trouble of any kind.  No news.  No headline.  No report.  Not super hard times.  Not hatred for others.  Or others hating me.  Not hunger or homelessness.  Not bullying threats.  Not backstabbing or beheading…. not even the worst sin you can think of. Not one thing can separate me from His love.  He won me fair and square.
In fact, these troubling things do not even faze me.
Ho hum.
For I know Jesus loves me.
He has convinced me that nothing can take that away.
Nothing.
No one alive.
Nobody dead.
No angel.
No demon.
Nothing that happens today.
Nothing that could happen tomorrow.
Nothing high or low.
Nothing I can think of.
Not something I can’t even imagine or even the unthinkable.
Absolutely nothing.  No thing.
It’s impossible for anyone or anything to squeeze their way between me and God’s love.
Because that’s just who He is.
And that’s just how much He loves me.
You too.

No, I’m not crazy or delusional.  That was Romans 8 “cliff note version” and the following is the same passage in The Message.  Take heart, family of God.  We win!

“If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?  And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen?  Who would dare even to point a finger?  The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us.  Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us?  There is no way!  Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:
They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.”

Quote: Take The Help. It’ll Do You Good

8 Aug

by Nancy Magiera

“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever” is recorded in John 14.  Of course Jesus is talking about Holy Spirit, aka: My Helper.  Don’t you just love that?  Jesus totally gets just how much we need help.  He also understands that we need so much help, that it is pointless for Holy Spirit to come-and-go as often as we cry out for help.  Nope.  Jesus brilliantly cuts to the chase and says, “and by the way, He is just going to remain with you forever, simply because you will need Him in your very next breath and again the one after that.”  Wahoo!  A Helper who remains.  Forever.

Jesus is our Helper too.  “Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with  ready access to God, let’s not let it slip through our fingers.  We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality.  He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin.  So let’s walk right up to him and get what He is so ready to give.  “Take the mercy, and accept the help” is recorded in Hebrews 4.  I love those instructions:  

1.  Walk right up to Him.

2.  Get what He is so ready to give.

3.  Take the mercy.

4.  Accept the help.

Of course, the hard part for us is to halt.  We’ve been taught that it is noble to bail ourselves out of our own messes.  But along comes Jesus in His usual upside-down kingdom principles and says “Come to Me.  Holy Spirit will even help you doHELP sign - drowning man these 4 easy steps.”

But what about the Father?  Is He also eager to help you in your hour of need?  “If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and you won’t be condescended to when you ask for it.” James 1  You just have to love that.  I can solicit Father’s help when I don’t know what I’m doing!  1 Peter also says, “You call out to God for help and he helps—he’s a good Father that way.”  You’ll never hear the Lord say something like: “You again?  I just helped you out yesterday… or… I already bailed you out 17 times… or…  When are you ever going to learn?”  or… anything else condescending.   Just love and patience and eagerness to help you.  Again.

So let Him do what He loves doing best.  Walk right up to Him.  Let Him give you what He is so willing and ready to give.  Take the mercy you need.  Take the help you are so desperate for.  Jehovah-Helper would so love to help you out today.
