Stop trusting in man……

Reading ~ Isaiah 2…..the chapter….
I get to the LAST VERSE…and here is what it said:

“ STOP TRUSTING IN MAN….”

And it stuck.
That “man” can be the one you are waiting on…
to love you, or give you even 1/2 of what
you desire from them…
That “man” can be the closest person to you.
That “man” can be your own kids, for joy, meaning…
That “man” can be even your spiritual family
That “man” can be yourself

“Stop trusting …..IN MAN “

John 17:14-15
Believers are “in this world, but not of it “
Psalm 121
“ our hope comes from the LORD”

Then take this literally,
We stir in our minds and hearts what is happening
to us right now….and try to figure out a way…
“what can …I DO “
“what will…..THEY DO “

Stop trusting man…..this is from GOD Himself…
IF we stop trusting man…..leave the natural ..
IF we START putting ALL OUR TRUST in HIM alone….
with every individual item coming at you..
or
every individual that is not even coming your way…

and just “ STOP “, quit going there for any reason..
just “STOP”….put it in complete park,
don’t go to man at all….
and quiet yourself
and go to the LORD….
GO…to the LORD….
Trust deeply, fully that HE ALONE will make a way
spiritually, that MAN can NEVER EVEN TRY….

I am selling my car,
Rock and I spent hours cleaning, preparing, ran to
Walmart, got the signs, Craigslist, Facebook…..
I literally DO NOT TRUST MY EFFORTS AT ALL.
I literally do not TRUST MY OWN EFFORTS AT ALL.

I trust GOD, to sell my car….
If He can draw all men unto Himself to save them from hell..
He can draw someone to buy that car.

I can make a list….
of many many things I AM TRUSTING GOD FOR RIGHT NOW…
many of them are for the ones I LOVE…..
and my mind, my heart….I know THEY can do little
to effect the outcome….
“ stop trusting man “
“ stop trusting man”
“ stop trusting man”……………..

fully, deeply, ONLY……trust in the LORD to do HIS
perfect will in them, in us,
I surrender ALL………….

How we are to live…….

1 Peter 2 : 16

We are to live :
1. Live as free men
2. Live as servants of God
3. show proper respect to everyone
4. Love the brotherhood of believers
5. Fear God
6. Honor the King
7. Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters
with all respect.
Not only to the good and considerate, but
also to those who are harsh.
8. IN all circumstances of being under a master
who is harsh ~ BE CONSCIOUS OF GOD…. 1st !

So if, we are under a boss who is harsh
so if, we are under a mistreating person who is harsh
so if, we are in a relationship which is harsh
so if, we are under a Govt. who is harsh
so if, we are under our parents who is harsh…

WE….are to be conscious of GOD ~ FIRST…
WE….are to be conscious of GOD ~ FIRST…

** What does that do then to our perspective of
the situation, where does that put us, how does
that change our view, how does that change our hearts…

We are to be humbled and under and conscious…
that in our thots, our words, our actions…..
That it is to HIM first……
1 Peter 2 : 19
“ ……he is conscious of GOD “

empower me God….to live on earth…
being ever so conscious of YOU first…
in ALL circumstances that are harsh.

Our priority = “to KNOW GOD”

What ever you are doing in life……
Business
Ministry
“good”
family
friends…..what ever……
You put a lot of effort into it….
You put your heart and soul into those things…..
but you are not seeing the “ FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT”
but you are not seeing the “ THINGS OF GOD “
but you are not seeing the “KINGDOM results”

This is my grid that I go to…..
My first priority in all areas of my life…..
“ is to intentionally know God more than I know those things”

To be more concerned about Him and I,
Then me and the “others”…..because it will never
SPIRITUALLY WORK…any other way… plan, push, put into..

HIS WORD :
Acts 19:1 + 2
“ ….there he found some DISCIPLES and asked them, “Did
you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed.”

(Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal truth in this one verse to you.)

They answered, “No, we have not even heard that here is a Holy
Spirit.”

and it goes on to talk about being baptized in the baptism of
repentance…… this is a whole other topic…..
“so they were baptized into the name of the Lord JESUS.
When Paul laid hands on them, the HOLY SPIRIT came on them
, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.”

So there you have a deep movement of knowing God, God revealing
Himself to them in a deeper level….than just going through the
motions….just speaking and saying salvation, to receiving all
that comes with salvation….. and the imparting of the power of
the HOLY SPIRIT into and on the already “disciples of JESUS CHRIST”

** I just have to ask…..God saved you from hell, but through
that salvation He desires to empower you to be LIKE CHRIST on earth.
To be empowered to do the work that the LORD died for us to do.
The power to do the work the LORD rose to have us to do….
not only proclaiming through words WHO HE IS…
but through our lives LIVING THE POWER OF WHO HE IS…

READ all of ACTS 19
vs. 11 “God did EXTRAORDINARY miracles through Paul. 12.so
that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him
( Paul ) were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were
cured and the evil spirits left them.”

Paul’s “words” were persuasive, had spiritual power on them…
Paul’s touch had spiritual power , Kingdom activation on it….

Watch this :

Acts. 19:13
“ Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to INVOKE
the NAME of The Lord JESUS over those who were demon posessed.
They would say, “IN THE NAME OF JESUS, whom Paul preaches,
I command you to come out.”

** you can’t live off of someone else’ FAITH or relationship
with JESUS CHRIST.

vs. 15. “ One day, the EVIL SPIRIT answered them, “Jesus I know
and I know about Paul, but who are you ?” ( the man over took
and defeated the disciple and left him bleeding )

This chapter is so intense about the depth of who
GOD, JESUS CHRIST, HOLY SPIRIT….we can be saved from
HELL….but not living in the power of the Spirit.

We can be “doing things for the LORD, proclaiming
HIM….and yet, “not deeply know Him”…..

I want it all, talk about “spiritual GREED”
I want it all
I want ALL OF HIM,
I want HIM to do “extraordinary miracles through me”

We want our family to succeed, to do good in school,
sports. We want them to have friends, and have relationships
that exceed caring. We want our business to go off
the charts. We want our points of view to get through
to others. We want our finances to “do everything in
the markets power”…
But what about our salvation, the “ working out “
But what about our children’s spiritual lives ?
But what about our spiritual lives with JESUS CHRIST ?
Talk about the death and resurrection….?
Talk about HIS life in vain ?

For an evil spirit to KNOW THAT WE DON’T have all that
JESUS died to give us ? seriously….That is why
the evil spirit can play with us and know that he has
the upper hand, seriously, because even, ( since HIS WORD
said it ) an evil spirit can know THE LACK of our relationship
with JESUS CHRIST.

shaking my head….right now…at the depth of
the reality of our knowing JESUS – head knowledge…
being a disciple …and yet not having what Paul
deeply had…… God knew and an evil spirit knew.

Easter….take it deep.
