Thought we could use a good word from all the bad News!
Jhn 11:41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
Jhn 11:42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
Jesus had no sense of unworthiness and He approached the Throne with ease.
Jesus had no sense of doubt and He knew the Father would answer before He asked.
He was ever confident His Father would hear and answer His every request and walking in this undeniable faith He was unstoppable. He had a quiet confidence in Love that needed no words but moved in absolute assurance that nothing would stop the Father from hearing. In that confidence is the absolute freedom to walk in faith, which is always pleasing to God.
1Co 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
It is this imparted righteousness that allows us to approach the Father with that same heart; a heart of faith and assurance that He always hears. If there was nothing that could come between Jesus and the Father then there is nothing that can come between Him and you for it is in Christ that He sees you.
He sees His Son’s own righteousness in you.
Deep in your heart He sees Christ in you and knows the final product.
In Christ there is simply nothing that can keep all of heaven from getting behind our petition:
Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness
Col 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
In Christ heaven is our true home; the Father has made a place for us to live and dwell eternally in His presence; For the Father to reject you He would have to reject His Son, and that will never be so:
Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Eph 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
In Christ we are to walk victorious:
2Co 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
In Christ we can know that we have His promises, for His Word is always true:
2Co 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
2Co 1:21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
2Co 1:22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
In Christ we have the same unlimited power of Life working in our daily lives that Jesus did:
Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
These are familiar verses one and all.
This is not a new revelation or a startling new truth, but it is a simple fact: He sees His Son in you and on that basis you will not be denied.
No, this is not some knew idea, but it is a mindset we all need to walk in; a quiet assurance that the Father wants to move and hears our every cry- confidence in God’s Love and willingness is the hallmark of a son of God. Selah.
Much love and many blessings in His Name,
