I didn’t post anything last week because I was finding it a bit tough to make a whole lot of sense about what is going on inside of me these days. Well actually, it makes perfect sense, it’s just, words escaped me and frankly, I was in no position to write coherently as I am almost always in a state of being ever so drunk on His love.
I have been feeling a bit differently for several months now concerning some ideas and mindsets that I had about my Christian walk. I couldn’t really put my finger on it initially but I just kept abiding in my Abba and as always, He has brought amazing clarity and revelation. Also, reading the book, The Mystical Union by John Crowder, speaking with a few friends who I consider no holds barred believers in the Word, and attending the Power and Love conference a few weeks ago just sealed the deal for me. I am forever changed.
I love how all I have to do is shift my thoughts to Him and boom, I am overtaken by Love Himself.
I love how I have but to focus on Him and allow Him to pour into me and He brings to light and fixes things I wasn’t even conscious of, let alone, looking to fix. My focus is ever on Him.
I love the simplicity of His Word. In John 6:29 (NLT) it says, Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” 1 John 2:6 NLT says Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.
I am finding that now, more than ever before, my focus is zoomed into Christ’s example. If I am to be following His example, there are mindsets I have found that I need to let go of, mindsets that don’t exactly fit well with how He operated here on Earth. I’m finding that the falling away of these old mindsets are producing an even greater sense of freedom in my life. I truly feel like I am more than just a mere human being. I’m not just here taking up space. I’m not locked into this constant struggle of I’m saved and going to Heaven but I have so many things I need to fix in order to receive all God has for me. I’m not striving or struggling to be who God created me to be, I am simply focused on Him and He is taking care of it all.
I am reading His word, not for information or to prove that I am correct (and someone else is wrong), but to know Him more intimately. I am living in an ever growing state of revelation and awareness of who I am so that I can walk it out easily. I mean really, how hard is it to simply be who you are? I am becoming love. I am believing in the One He sent and following Him and I am finding that His yoke is in fact easy, and His burden is light. I am content to no longer allow my experiences or anything else I see, dictate where I place my trust/faith. My faith is in His finished work alone. It is non-negotiable. I am choosing to follow Christ alone.
