Repent! The Kingdom of God is Within You

 

 

 

 

 

In this Corona Virus pandemic, I have been seeing a lot of online calls and challenges to repent.

Yes, repent!

Change the way you think until “righteousness, peace, and joy” are your reality; until the confidence of “on earth as it is in heaven” is your perspective; until you sense the arms of your kind and loving Father enveloping you and you grow sure in His nature to work all things to our good.

Repent!

Begin to think as He thinks, see as He sees, hear as He hears, give as He gives… live sure in His love today.

Repenting is not an act of desperation, it’s not about begging or groveling for some reprieve or stay of execution from a judgmental God who is angry with us. He is not angry. He is in a good mood! His love is still the answer, is still measureless and true. He is still the God who feeds 5000 plus people with 5 loaves and 2 fish. He is still a Relentless Redeemer!

So repent!

Step away from desperation and live in His reality of more than enough today!

Repenting is not about feeling ashamed or condemned. Repenting is the agreement with what Jesus did at the cross. It is the agreement with His value for us. It is our conscience awakening to our true identity, it’s our agreement with our restored nature!

Repent!

Live confident in your proclivity to be generous, and kind, and full of life, and hope; then love people with boldness today!

Repenting isn’t an act of fear by a guilty person. It is agreement with Love by a redeemed person. And it casts out fear.

So repent!

Live redeemed and fearless today! And love, love, love!

Repenting isn’t a heavy burden, a 24-hour wailing session focused on our brokenness, and poverty, and need, and sin. Repenting is a 2 min, 4 min, 24 min, 24 hours, 240 days and on and on revelation and agreement of our Father’s perspective in which we lay our burdens down, we exchange brokenness for righteousness, poverty for hope, peace, and joy; and sin for wholeness.

Repenting is the gift Jesus gave us to live confident as sons and daughters in His love on earth as it is in heaven.

So yes, repent! Grow sure in His affection and live confident in His love today!

    Well spoken. Recently I discovered that fuge is a word meaning to put to flight. Refuge finding recourse in our trials. A safe place with our Father. So simple. Run to Him. Not away. He is always desiring us.

      Yes! When you understand that goodness and love will follow you all the days of your life then when you’re in the shadow of the valley you sit and eat! (see Psalm 23) He is ALWAYS desiring us!!

      Thanks for sharing.

Meet the Father

I would like to suggest that our questions, longing, insecurity, and identity are forever answered, settled, satisfied, and secured in our revelation of God as Father.

Does God Use Tragedy To Manipulate

God never instigates nor manipulates a tragedy to grow faith, that’s not what a good Father does. But it is what a controlling God would do.

God Is Not In Control, You Are…

“You know, I could control you, Ethan. I could force, manipulate or straight up shame you into obedience, you’re only ten. I can make him behave. But someday my boy, you will be a man and beyond my ability to control. But more importantly son, I don’t want to control you, I want you to control yourself. I want you to value freedom as the Holy Spirit does. Do you understand?”

Whats For Dinner?

I am a good father, I tell my kids all the time and they believe me. But as amazing a father as I am, I don’t hold a candle, or a firebrand, or any other source of light to my heavenly Father.  He’s the cat’s meow… yeah, I’m bringing it back.

JOHN ELDREDGE / RESILIENT: RESTORING YOUR WEARY SOUL

The human soul has a built-in yearning for joy and beauty and all good things. But that craving for life has taken a real beating in recent years. Between false promises of ease and comfort on one side and the sheer trauma of global disease and disasters on the other, people today are facing a shortage of peace, happiness, and strength. 

In this conversation, John and Jason dive into John’s new book, Resilient. The guys talk about life and faith during and since the pandemic. They dive into the evidence of trauma, how to discover peace in the midst of disappointment, the dark night of the soul, de- and reconstruction, and ultimately union. This conversation reveals a path toward genuine recovery and resilience provided by Jesus himself.

The Freest Person In The Room

The freest person in the room is the most powerful person in the room. A free person never operates in the context of control; a free person operates in the context of trusting surrender to sovereign love.
