None of These Things Move Me

Acts 20:24
But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

A golden rule to finishing your race, not abandoning your walk with Christ, and never turning from the ways of the Lord, you must learn not to allow things to move you. To many believers are moved away from church, the Bible, a godly confession, Christian fellowship, godly leadership, and fellowship with God because of things that happen in their life. Notice in this verse how we avoid allowing such things to affect us. We are not to count our lives dear to ourselves. Translation, stop living for you.

As a believer in Christ we were bought at a price and we belong to God, therefore we should live for Him. When you live for God you can’t get your feelings hurt, nor do you allow what happens around you to take control of how you live, for you are following after Christ. This is how you live a joy filled life, for you stop focusing on the things of the world which do not bring true joy but only fleeting happiness.

But the joy of the Lord is a powerful and constant strength to your life. When you live for God and He is why you get up everyday, life takes on a whole new view, a life filled with the goodness and the glory of our God. Keep your focus on the Creator and not on the creation and you will no longer be tossed around by the challenges of life, but instead overcome them because you cannot be moved.

Saved

Matthew 18:11
“For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.”

Once you come to know Jesus you are no longer lost, you have been saved. The word saved is defined as: to rescue from danger or destruction, to save one from disease, to make well, to heal, restore to health, and to deliver from the Messianic judgement. If you know Jesus you are no longer lost, you have been saved. You are not going to be saved, you already are.

To walk in the reality of all Christ has done for us you must believe in your heart that it is already so, for faith does not see what Christ has done for us as a promise to come, but a present day reality, for faith is present tense (now faith is). It is no different then salvation for the sinner. God has already done what is needed for one to be born again. They must simply receive by faith what He has already done, and so it is with all we have in Christ.

We need to see what He has done as a completed work, believing in our hearts we have what He has said. We must agree with God’s Word, declaring what His Word says, and we must act upon His Word, walking by faith and not by sight. When you do then you will walk in what is already yours for you have been saved!

The Good of The Land

Isaiah 1:19
If you will give ear to my word and do it, the good things of the land will be yours;

What would you call a child who picks and chooses what their parents tell them they are to do? Would you say they are an obedient child? I don’t think so. Not only would they obviously be recognized as disobedient, they would even be considered rebellious. Why do so many believers continue to struggle with areas in their life? Why are they not experiencing all that is good that God has already provided for them?

One reason sad to say, is because many continue to take what God has said in His Word and then pick and choose what they want to do or not to do. This is one of the reasons many are still not walking in the all the goodness of what God has for them. Some of the most obvious areas include not having a God-chosen pastor for their life and getting to God’s house to receive and apply what they are taught. Not honoring God with the tithe. Not forgiving others who have wronged them, and not diligently seeking after God. Many believers still want to interpret scripture to fit their lifestyle choices or make excuses not to do what God has said.

Our Heavenly Father is smarter than all of us. Believers need to realize that if they truly want God’s best for their life they need to stop picking and choosing what they want or not want to do. Until Jesus truly becomes the Lord of your life, one will miss out on all that He has available for them, and they will continue to put up with things that Jesus died to free them from. It doesn’t take years for Jesus to free us. It may take some time for us get revelation of what He has done, but if you live in obedience to ALL God has said, you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free! Don’t be a disobedient child, you hurting your life in doing so.

Rest For Your Soul

Matthew 11:28-29
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

In the book of Hebrews we are told the children of Israel did not enter into the rest God had for them because they did not obey what God told them to do. The Bible calls this unbelief. Unbelief is when we hear what God’s Word says, but we choose not to do it. We instead choose to live life our own way. In doing so we are not taking His yoke upon us and learning from Him, and therefore we are going to be heavy laden in life as we are living life the way we want to.

But when we come to Jesus and get born again, and then come to the Word of God and learn of His ways and do them, we find rest for our souls. Our soul (our mind) needs to be renewed to learn God’s way to live life. This is how we take His yoke upon us. A yoke is what they put two animals in side by side to pull a cart or plow. This made it much easier for each animal because they were not pulling alone. When we learn of His ways through His Word we are not trying to live life on our own, we are yoked up with Him, and it makes life a lot easier.

Walking in unbelief is based on living life according to the ways of man, but faith is based on the facts of God’s Word. Walk by faith, choosing to come to the Word of God not questioning what He tells us do, but just doing what it He says. When we do so then we will walk in His rest as we see our faith in God work for us. For when you walk by faith and not by sight you have taken His yoke upon you and are therefore resting in God.

Fear Is A Liar

John 8:44
The devil was a murderer from the beginning. He has never been truthful. He doesn’t know what the truth is. Whenever he tells a lie, he’s doing what comes naturally to him. He’s a liar and the father of lies.

Fear is a liar. One of the primary tactics of the devil to manipulate and take advantage of people is fear. During this pandemic you can see this everywhere. The real problem in this midst of all we are dealing with isn’t as much a virus as it is a fear of the virus. This is important to understand because viruses will always be around. If people were convinced of the Truth of God’s Word there would be no fear of any virus. How does satan get people in fear? Through lies.

As the above verse clearly tells us satan is a liar, and the father of lies. Make no mistake this virus like all sickness and disease comes from him, for Acts 10:38 tells us disease is an oppression of the devil. He uses such things to create fear so that he can accomplish his agenda. What caused our country to close down business causing 30 million people to be unemployed, and to become quarantined even though they were not sick? Fear did. Fear that many people would die if they didn’t.

Our country has faced bigger threats than this and not gone to the extreme measures they have gone too. What if America’s people lived by what our money says, “In God we trust”. If we did, we would not have given in to the lie. Jesus said in John 8:31-32 if you abide in My Word you are my disciples, you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free. God said He would protect you (Psalm 91), and that He has redeemed you from all sickness and disease (Gal. 3:13). Whenever you come under fear’s control, you have given in to the deceiver, the father of lies. Fear is a liar. Live in and by the Truth, and His Truth will set you free from the liar.
