IAM Healed

ISAIAH 53:5 NLT But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.

Before we have a relationship with Jesus, all lives are the same: rebellious, sinful and incomplete. I was desperate for change and healing. By God’s grace, I submitted my life to Jesus. As I gave my whole life to Jesus, I knew that I needed to be healed. I had wounds and scars from sin. I was angry, defensive, moody, selfish and incomplete in my ability to truly love others.

I take up my new identity in Christ today and everyday: I am healed because of Jesus’ suffering. Jesus experienced crushing pain and whipping for us. He loved us so much that he endured beatings to set us free and heal us.

My identity as a healed being is rooted in the power of Jesus’ love.
I must throw out all doubts about the ability to willingness of God to heal me.
When our thoughts betray us, we lose power in our prayers.

Friend: When you ask “Is it possible to be healed?”
The answer “Yes, I know it’s possible, because of Jesus love for me! He suffered for me!”
God loves you so much! Do you now that? Do you believe it?

Always around Christmas-time we have images of a newborn Jesus. The savior of the world was born in a barn. He was born into this world with a destiny of suffering. But that suffering was for our sins. One of the wise men’s gifts was Myrrh. Myrrh is the oil that is used to anoint a dead body before burial. It is offered as a prophecy of the way he would die. Imagine if you had a baby shower and you received a certificate for cremation or burial plot? I would throw that person out of the party!

Jesus had a destiny to save and heal the world through his suffering and death.
You have a destiny as a healed and redeemed being.

Friend! Claim the miraculous power for your deep inner healing because of Jesus.

Let’s proclaim the Truth
IAM Destined for an amazing life
IAM Loved by Jesus
IAM Cleansed from my sins
IAM Made whole, no longer incomplete
IAM Healed through Jesus’ suffering

“Jesus Paid It All”
I hear the Savior say,
Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
and melt the heart of stone.

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
Jesus died my soul to save,
my lips shall still repeat

O Praise the one who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead

IAM 100% Convinced

ROM 8:38-39 NLT And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Are you 100% convinced?

What’s it going to take to hold onto the truth we read today. The Truth that we live out every day?

Nothing
Nothing is a very absolute word, it leaves no doubt for even a .0001% chance.
Death: Are you afraid of death, or afraid of losing someone?
Life: a new baby or relationship could derail our focus on God’s love?
Angels nor Demons:  Let’s be sure to worship the Holy Spirit, but not the spirit realm
Fears for today: when you woke up this morning, were you thinking about something heavy?
Worries for tomorrow:  Do you have a big due date or deadline coming up?
Powers of hell: No bondage to sin and the actions that come from it are greater than the Love of God!
Nothing in all creation!
I think it’s pretty darn clear, there is nothing, you can do, or someone else can do to separate us from the love of God.

death cannot separate

And that Love of God is revealed to us through a relationship with Jesus our Lord.

There is nothing that can be done to us, that can tear away our relationship with the Savior.

But are you convinced?

Some days, I am
And honestly, some moments of some days, fears creep in.
And I can spend more mental energy than it’s worth to worry about things.

That’s when I must come back to the truth and hold onto it like a life preserver in the open sea.

Today:  I want to encourage you and me to commit the truth to memory.
To let the words of truth be burned into our minds and spirit forever.
And when the drama of life pops up again. We can whip out the truth from our memory and get back into the safe embrace of God’s Love

God’s love is relentless, will you be also?  Let’s go there together

IAM 100% Convinced of the Truth
IAM loved by God
IAM inseparable from the Love of God

“Unstoppable Love”
(feat. Kim Walker-Smith)

Try to stop Your love, and You would wage a war
Try to take the very thing, You gave Your life for
And You would come running, tear down every wall
All the while shouting, “My love you’re worth it all!”

God, You pursue me, with power and glory
Unstoppable love that never ends
You’re unrelenting, with passion and mercy
Unstoppable love that never ends

You broke into the silence, and sang a song of hope
A melody resounding, in the deep of my soul
You have come running, You tore down every wall
All the while shouting, “My love you’re worth it all!”

God, You pursue me, with power and glory
Unstoppable love that never ends
You’re unrelenting, with passion and mercy
Unstoppable love that never ends

No sin, no shame, no past, no pain
Can separate me from Your love
No height, no depth, no fear, no death
Can separate me from Your love

God, You pursue me, with power and glory
Unstoppable love that never ends
You’re unrelenting, with passion and mercy
Unstoppable love that never ends

IAM a Servant With a Purpose

Matthew 20:26-28 NLT But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant,  and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave.  For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Jesus tells us that if we want to be a leader, we must become the servant.  If we want to be first, we must become the slave.

Jesus was a son of the line of David.  He had royal lineage.
He performed enough miracles that he could have big-timed it wherever he went.
Out of all the people in the history of the world he would have been justified to say “Don’t you know who I am?”But he didn’t.  He gave his life has a ransom for the world.The greatest person that ever lived, the one true Son of God, was beaten, and punished and crucified , to serve the world.

MLKQuote

It’s funny because , many prominent business and training books for professionals say the same thing.  If you want to be great, serve the many. And when you continue to read more books, it seems as if they should just say,
If you want to be a great leader, just be like Jesus.   Because that’s what they all say.

Jesus was sent by God the father for one mission.
And we are sent by God for that same mission.
We are called for one purpose.

And the easiest and most powerful way to win over this world is to serve unselfishly out of Love.

Because it’s totally opposite of what the inner person is screaming for.  And when we serve, with the heart and compassion of Jesus.  That breaks something inside of those we serve. That models the Love of God. It makes others scratch their head… “What is up with those Jesus people?”
What do they have inside of them, that allows them to serve with Joy and passion like that?
Why would this stranger decide to love me by serving me?

Then we can be ready to share God’s truth.

Purpose

ACTS 20:24 NLT But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.

In my 39 years of life, this is the first time that this verse popped out of the page to me, and it’s timely.

My life is worth nothing unless I am doing what my life calling is.
Telling others about the Good news! And the wonderful Grace of God.

That’s a mission statement!

Today: look in the mirror and declare this truth
IAM a Servant of God’s Kingdom
IAM a Slave to God’s Love
IAM a Messenger of the Gospel
IAM a Storyteller of God’s Grace

You have a purpose!
You have a special skill or talent that you have been gifted with to uniquely serve this world.
You would be wasting that talent unless you use it for advancing of God’s message.
It’s never too late to get started on that calling and mission!

Open your eyes to the opportunities that God is presenting to you
How can I serve? Let the counter cultural power of God’s love through your service break down the hardest of hearts.

 Go To Hungry Ones By Keith Green

Go to the hungry ones and fill them with His bread,
They’ll leave their darkness as you shine the light He shed,
Point to His promises, believe in what He said,
And His joy will be manifest in you,
And the lost will be found as He works through you.

Out on the highways, there’s so many passing by,
Step out in boldness and watch the family multiply,
Pray up some miracles, lets open up the sky,
And His joy will be manifest to you,
And the lost will be found by the things you do.

Oh don’t you know that Jesus loves you,
So let’s go and spread His word,
Redeem the time while there’s still time,
Let’s share the call we heard, lets share the call we heard.

Is your house open to let strangers enter there,
Give to the least of them, show them someone cares,
And you may be entertaining Angels unaware,
And His joy may be manifest to you,
And the lost may be found as He works through you,
And His joy will be manifest in you,
And the lost, they’ll be found by the things you do.

IAM Faithfully Secure

PSALMS 36:5 NLT Your unfailing love, O  lord , is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.

PSALMS 100:5 NLT For the lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

God loves you with an unfailing love.

The description of that unfailing love: As vast as the heavens.
God’s faithfulness is a reflection of that Love, goes beyond the clouds!

That same unfailing love continues forever.

Forever! Without conditions of our obedient.

God’s faithfulness continues to each generation!

To your children, their children, and their children’s children!

That’s how much God loves us.

And that Love resides in of us.

I can honestly say, right now, in my sinful state,  fail to love like God loves.

But, I am improving on a daily basis.
And as I spend time reflecting, receiving and learning about God’s love.
I continue to grow more and more like Him.

The depth and height of God’s love is so vast, we are never out of the reach of it.
abraham-lincoln-i-have-been-driven-to-my-knees-many-times
Believe me! I’ve tried to run away from it

I’ve tried to avoid it
I’ve tried to sleep my way through it.
But somehow, God’s love was there.

God wants you, and He wants you to be in love with him too.
Be encouraged and develop a true identity in who we are, and how much God loves us.
Let that confidence in that Love and Faithfulness be the strength that helps us become amazing vessels that God works through.
Be faithful, as God is faithful

Love as God has loved us

HEBREWS 12:28-29 NLT Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.

God’s kingdom is built on the same foundation of His Love and faithfulness.

And how does Hebrews ask for us to respond?
Be Thankful! Worshipping Him with Holy Fear and Awe!

Let’s get consumed in God’s Holy Fire.

That fire brings purity, strength, light to this world.

IAM the Beloved
IAM Faithfully secure
IAM always within his grasp
IAM consumed in His Holy Fire

Title: Your Love Oh Lord (Psalm 36) – Third Day – Worship Video w. Lyrics

Owner: LyricsForWorship

“Your Love Oh Lord (Psalm 36)”

Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains
Your justice flows like the ocean’s tide
I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of your wings

IAM a Recipient of God’s Unfailing Love

John 1:17 NLT For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.

God loves you!
God loves you without failing!
God loves you through Jesus Christ!

Replace with word “you” with “me” and repeat those sentences out loud until they are a part of your identity.

God loves ME!
God loves ME without failing!
God loves ME through Jesus Christ!

I must repeat the truth for myself, morning, noon and night.
The love starts inside of you. God’s faithfulness holds you up.

27178

God’s love for you conquers every sin, weakness and addiction. Run to God’s love when temptations and the old patterns of responding to negative circumstances start to creep in. No amount of willpower compares to the strength of God’s love.

God’s love fixes every misunderstanding, angry confrontation and hatred. God’s love in you flowing into the tough situations solves even the most vile hatred and anger. God’s love turns around every argument and angry fist like a secret weapon. The world tries diplomacy and reason and forgets about love.

Love is Gods most Powerful weapon

God’s love conquers every evil plot of the enemy to destroy. God’s love quiets all whispers, doubts, anxiety and lies. Have you ever tried to close your eyes to pray and it just seems like a loud radio of negativity and worries plays in your head? That’s when we must run to God’s Love. Meditate on the truth until it sets you free. God’s unfailing love washes over you like the constant waves of the ocean. Can you see yourself in Jesus’ warm embrace? Live in the loving embrace of Jesus love.

God’s love washes away all sin, addiction, hatred, lies, anxiety and doubts. Let God’s amazing faithfulness tear away the deep roots inside of you. Those deep roots that have become a part of your being don’t define you anymore. The minor pain of tearing away the unworthy parts of our character can’t compare to the pleasure of God’s love. Can you let them go for the sake of receiving more of God’s love? I believe you can.

Then when you say these words out loud, your soul will respond
Truth: God loves ME!
Your soul: “I Know!”
Truth: God loves ME without failing!
Your soul: “Amen hallelujah!”
God loves ME through Jesus Christ!
Your soul: “That’s right! Woo hoo!”
