Strong Basis – Half 2
Week of July 26, 2020
Ten days in the past, The Lord highlighted the restoration of ruined cities to me (Is 61:four).
He then led me to Psalm 118:14-15 AMPC, which says, “The Lord is my Power and Track; and He has change into my Salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is within the tents and personal dwellings of the [uncompromisingly] righteous: the suitable hand of the Lord does valiantly and achieves power!”
Psalm 118:15 TPT says, “…My loud shouts of victory will echo all through the land. For Yahweh’s proper hand conquers valiantly!”
Holy Spirit additionally jogged my memory of Isaiah 9:6-7 TPT, which says…
The accountability of full dominion will relaxation on his shoulders, and his title will probably be: The Fantastic One! The Extraordinary Strategist! The Mighty God…Nice and huge is his dominion. He’ll deliver immeasurable peace and prosperity. He’ll rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom to determine and uphold it by selling justice and righteousness from this time ahead and forevermore.
Buddies, God is a finisher.
Even when circumstances look scattered, chaotic and not possible, God is sovereign and continues to be working to present ravaged locations and even private tasks new life and convey them to a superb, highly-purposed completion.
He’s by no means and not using a victory-strategy to deliver higher restoration, making issues higher than earlier than.
Even when we want an overhaul, it simply implies that our God is affected person and can draw us nearer to make us extra stable in Him.
Extra stable like Him, the Basis who laid His life down for us to dwell as “immoveable,” which suggests “won’t budge.” And “secure,” which suggests unchangeable. And “steadfast,” which suggests “standing quick with out buckling or giving method” (HELPS Phrase-studies).
“Mighty God” in Isaiah 9:7 means “the God of battle” and “Champion God (TPT Bible research notes).”
He’ll combat for us and by no means lose!
When God is in one thing, we will all the time belief Him to finally show it to be victorious as we obey Him.
We should preserve our religion in Him all the time, as He’s seated in what He establishes and has a dedication to see us by.
What precisely is God igniting in you on this hour?
What’s He main you into?
How are you seeing Him contact your efforts?
What fantastic factor is The Fantastic One birthing by you for His Kingdom?
Verse 7 continues on, saying that God guidelines on the throne and over the dominion “to determine and uphold it by selling justice and righteousness.”
To “set up” right here means to be arrange, mounted, fitted, agency, made safe and enduring as we decide, with God, to be trustworthy.
As we rule and reign with Him, He sustains us, comforts us, refreshes us, strengthens us and stays our hearts with willpower, truthfulness, proper discretion and vindication that doesn’t give up.
That is the God we serve.
By no means quit on His appointed instances for justice.
They’re stable floor that we will belief.
God won’t neglect.
Psalm 89:14 TPT assures us by saying, “Your wonderful throne rests on a basis of righteousness and simply verdicts. Grace and reality are the attendants who go earlier than you.”
Have you ever ever had an encounter with The Lord, the place He reveals an necessary occasion up forward for you that you recognize could be not possible with out His intervention? Then He, not solely confirms the occasion by two or three witnesses, however He persistently encourages you over time by revealing increasingly more bits till the occasion happens?
By main us on this “treasure hunt” type, God not solely refreshes our hope, He awakens us increasingly more till the fullness of time for the occasion, the place we totally mature to obtain.
We come to understand that The Lord needed to go earlier than us to set it up nicely upfront, as a result of so many components have to come back into place over time in, not solely our lives, however others.
All alongside, He leads us alongside a stable basis of righteous character and conduct, additional into vindication, as He sees it—justifiable.
It is a journey the place we will belief Him implicitly as He leads us into His plan for righting wrongs.
The Lord gave me a Phrase of knowledge on this regard, which is…
After we get sincere and develop to a spot of realizing higher and totally forgiving, we obtain higher than what would have been.
It is a divine re-set as in Isaiah 22:20-23 by His grace and reality.
That is what is supposed as surpassing victory, and it begins by believing the victorious work of the cross, our safe place.
Romans 8:37 AMPC tells us, “But amid all these items we’re greater than conquerors and achieve a surpassing victory by Him Who cherished us.”
Surpassing means “a big quantity or excessive diploma; exceeding, excelling, or extraordinary” (Dictionary.com).
“Surpassing victory” means to “prevail mightily (Sturdy’s #5245) and to be “past conquer,” to the extent that we’re “fully and overwhelmingly victorious” (HELPS Phrase-Research).
I consider God, in His wealthy mercy and superb grace, will do for the folks and cities that flip to Him and show to be uncompromising.
Revelation 3:21 AMPC assures us that “He who overcomes (is victorious), I’ll grant him to take a seat beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) and sat down beside My Father on His throne.”
“…Thanks be to God, Who in Christ all the time leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and thru us spreads and makes evident the perfume of the information of God all over the place, For we’re the candy perfume of Christ [which exhales] unto God…” (2 Co 2:14-15 AMPC).
To Him be the glory.
