It is Up to Us!

The Father has done all that He can do to bless and help us.
When Jesus became the incarnate Son of God, died in our stead, went to hell in
our place, was raised from the dead, and then was seated at the right hand of
the Father, our redemption was a settled fact in the mind of God.
 
Jesus sacrifice for us purchased our salvation, healing,
deliverance, and freedom from everything Satan brought us through Adam’s sin.
Victory over oppression, depression, fear, sickness, disease, poverty, all
kinds of lack, personal weaknesses, and every form of sin is now available to
every human being. This salvation transcends race, ethnic background, or
gender.
 
Every promise of God is equally available to every human
being on the planet right now. In the mind of God, our salvation has purchased our
individual freedom from everything the fall of man brought into life.
  
Now it’s up to us to individually exercise our God given
choice and our God given grace through faith and receive all that Jesus has
purchased for us. Our freedom is no longer up to God. It’s up to us! We must
choose to act on the Word of God in faith, and by faith receive all that Jesus
provided. If we fail to act on the Word, God’s hands are tied. Jesus’ work is
complete, and we are complete in Him. But we must by faith choose to personally
act to gain the benefits.
 
What the Father said to His old covenant people is also said
to us in the church today: See, I have
set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today
to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments,
His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord
your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. But if your heart
turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods
and serve them, I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall
not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and
possess. I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have
set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life,
that both you and your descendants may live
(Deuteronomy 30:15-19).
  
Let’s make a clear choice today to act on the Word in every
circumstance, to speak God’s Word in the face of the negative report and the
feelings of defeat. We cannot be defeated if we make the choice to fight the
good fight of faith. The battle has already been won. The victory is ours to
possess. Let’s stand our ground and receive God’s best through Christ Jesus!

    – Man we are so lazy in the world of technology and microwaves. We want it all right now, instant gratification. It is so easy to getyour eyes off of God's promises and what His word says. Again, thanks for the reminder!
