Yesterday we discussed healing and it was a real blessing to me and I thought because healing goes along with our relationship with Jesus, perhaps it would be a good study to do, just following the healing post. I know that our relationship with God and Jesus is the most important thing we can work on in this life. It brings all other blessings to us by being close to Him and obeying Him. God is a loving Father and never asks us to do anything impossible through His strength. Here are some texts that reveal this truth.
Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this very thing that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:16 - 24 (Please be patient through these verses because there is a special promise that is so exciting to discover.) V. 16 Rejoice evermore. V.17 Pray without ceasing. V.18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. V. 19 Quench not the Spirit. V. 20 Despise not prophesyings. V. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. V.22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. V. 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. V.24 FAITHFUL IS HE THAT CALLETH YOU WHO ALSO WILL DO IT.!!!!!! There is your promise to be able to follow through with the previous verses. I love it and He is faithful to do just exactly what He says He will do. He will sanctify you wholly and praying that our whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. I'm so excited when I get into His word and really study it out.
We must commit our ways unto the Lord and repent of our past mistakes and sins and He says He will perfect what He has started in us and supply all our needs in the process according to His riches in glory and faithful is He that calleth you who also will do it. Can it get any better than that? I hope this has helped a lot and if you open God's word and ask Him to lead you as you read, you can find many more texts to support these verses. These verses and promises will make our relationship with Jesus so close that we can absolutely trust Him with our whole lives, not just part of our life. I love to study to show myself approved by Him. It is easy once we surrender out own way and plan on following His way. Try it, you just might never go back to your old way again. I promise you, this is the only way for peace and safety in this world of sin. Grandma Joan
