There is something that we must come to understand. This world’s system is designed to destroy our trust in God. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, all of the worlds system is controlled by only a few very wealthy and influential families. The governments, the monetary system, science, the medical community, the media, and really all secular sources of information that influence people’s lives and opinions are controlled by these individuals. Their agenda is a world free from all knowledge of the one true God and His only Son, Jesus, and elimination of everyone who walks in the power of the Holy Spirit. This agenda hasn’t changed since the original rebellion in the garden when Adam believed satan’s lie and decided that he could have a better life apart from God. Since then man, influenced by Satan and driven by his own lust & greed, has set out to create a utopian society apart from a mean, controlling God and His morals, ethics, and standards. The only problem is that apart from God there is no life!
Unfortunately, most of what the church believes and teaches as truth is what the Bible calls doctrines of devils. After the resurrection of Jesus, the early church under the apostles enjoyed a living fellowship with God and walked in the truth. But by the second century A.D. the church had been greatly influenced by the Roman Empire and most of the church leaders were not even born again. It didn’t take long for the teaching to again become a list of do’s and don’ts along with all the things we had to do to please God. Teaching based on the belief that God is an angry God who has to be appeased which is a lie that satan started in the garden.
Truth is that God’s heart has always been to dwell in and among His people. His family. And for them to have the same quality of life that He possesses!
We are all familiar with the story of Moses going up on Mount Sinai and receiving the Ten Commandments. What we overlook is the fact that God wanted all of Israel to come up to meet Him. (Exodus 19:13) But they drew back in fear and told Moses he was on his own!
Isaiah 40:31 tells us of the life that can be had by those that wait upon the Lord. The word wait in that scripture literally means to bind together perhaps by twisting. Are you longing to be bound to God?
As new believers, most of us experience this kind of relationship with God. But then life happens. Most of us aren’t taught the truth about a loving heavenly Father who has given us all things freely to enjoy. God instantly gave us a new heart. We should have been taught to change the way we think to align ourselves with our new nature. Instead we are indoctrinated into unbelief. We are told all the things we must do to get God to bless us. When our prayers don’t get answered we are told we are not baby Christians any more and God expects us to grow up.
Jesus told us exactly the opposite. He told us to have the faith of little children! Matthew 18:3
Revelation 2:4 was written to believers. They had walked away from their first love. Will you fall in love with Jesus again? Will you go back to the place where you trusted like a little child? Will you believe as a little child that nothing is impossible?
Spend time loving Jesus! Open your heart to Him and let Him fill you with His life! The closer we get to God, the more intimate our relationship with Him becomes, the more that His life influences every aspect of our lives. His life in us gives life to our bodies. It brings life to or relationships and our finances. His life in us causes us to experience effortless abundance in every area of life!
( Hebrews 4:11, John 10:10, James 4:8, Colossians 2:10, John 17:3 )
Experiencing the life and love of God in our lives will restore us to that place of child like faith that we had in the beginning. God longs for that kind of relationship with His children. I long for it. I know you do too!
