A Wonderful Promise

“But the one who always listens to Me will live undisturbed in a heavenly peace.  Free from fear, confident and courageous, you will rest unafraid and sheltered from the storms of life.”  (Proverbs 1:33 TPT)


Don’t you love the promises of God?  What are the promises revealed in this one verse?

  • Living undisturbed in a heavenly peace
  • Free from fear and unafraid
  • Confident
  • Courageous
  • Sheltered from the storms of life

So many times we claim the promises and forget about what we must do to attain the promises.  All these promises are ours IF we ALWAYS listen to God.  If we obey His Word and obey His instructions to us.  Is this impossible?  No, because God’s Word says that “all things are possible to him who BELIEVES.”

I’m very goal driven.  I always want to know HOW to achieve something.  How does this work and how can I do this?  That is the way I approach the Word of God.  Here are the promises and I want them.  How can I attain them?  I like to break things down into tasks or a “to do” list.  It somehow helps me get my mind around a principle.

“The one who ALWAYS listens” is the key statement in this scripture.  Always and never are two words that seem to be impossible.  For example, “I’ll never eat sugar again!” seems to be an impossibility considering everything has sugar in it, or “I will always save my money every week.”  This too seems impossible because of life’s unexpected twists and turns.  So the statement “the one who always listens” also seems impossible.  So how can we always listen to God?

Listen isn’t just hearing the words, it is HEEDING the words, obeying the words.  For example, the first command in the old and new covenants is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.”  This is an “always” command.  It isn’t just reading the words and then going on with your life.  To listen to God is to obey God.

In order to always listen to God, you must put value on Him.  Ask yourself this question:  Do I value God’s presence in my life?  Is He a priority for me in my everyday life?  Do I wake up hungry to seek Him out?  If you answered yes, then you are in a position to attain these promises because it is in the intimate relationship where the “always” happens.

God is always looking for people who want an intimate friendship with Him.  That is why He created mankind in the first place.  His desire for fellowship with us has never wavered, no matter how evil and selfish we have been.  It is possible to always listen to Him when He is the number one priority in your life.  People do what they want to do; what they desire to do.  If you value God’s presence in your life, you will pursue Him.  If you value only what He can give you, you will miss out on the greatest relationship of your life.

I challenge you to take thirty days and begin to pursue Him, just for the sake of being with Him.  How can you do this?

  • Take fifteen minutes first thing in the morning even if you have to get up a little early.  What is fifteen minutes?
  • Spend the first five minutes thanking Him for everything in your life.
  • Spend the second five minutes reading His Word out loud.  Begin in the Psalms.
  • Spend the last five minutes just talking to Him like He is sitting in front of you.  Easy conversation.
  • Get a journal and write down the things He says or insights you get from the Bible.

You will be amazed at what God begins to do in your life.  You will notice an uncommon peace come into your life.  You will notice that peace when the storms of life blow upon you.  Storms are a given in our lives, but God has great promises for us to live in during these times.

Who Do You Say that I Am?

“Now when Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, Who do people say that the Son of Man is?  And they answered, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.  He said to them, But who do you say that I am?  Simon Peter replied You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.

Then Jesus answered him, Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah.  For flesh and blood men have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.  And I tell you, you are Peter, the rock, and on this rock, I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not overpower it.  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth must be what is already bound in heaven, and whatever you loose must be what is already loosed in heaven.  Then He sternly and strictly charged and warned the disciples to tell no one that He was Jesus the Christ.” (Matthew 16:13-20)


Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Godhead, crossed eternity and entered time to build a bridge over the flames of hell so that we can once again walk in the same victory that Adam did.  We can have the same friendship with the Father that Adam enjoyed before the fall.

As in the days Jesus was on earth, the same question remains for every person to answer: “Who do you say that I am?”  Today we hear the same answers.  Jesus was a mythical character.  Jesus was the greatest prophet.  Jesus was a good teacher and prophet.  These are the definitions of people who don’t know Him personally.  Those who know Him personally say that He is the Son of the Living God because they KNOW Him.

Unlike the days of the disciples, we are to proclaim from the mountaintops that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  Jesus was preparing to go to Jerusalem to be the sacrifice and He would proclaim that Himself.  That is why He strictly forbade the disciples from saying anything.  It wasn’t time yet for them to do that.  Now we do it every chance we get!

Everyone will answer this one question one way or another.  That question is still hanging as an unanswered question in everyone’s life until they answer yes to Jesus.  We are living in the age of grace, where God’s arms are opened wide to receive anyone who believes in His Son Jesus and accepts His sacrifice for sin.  It is the season of “whosoever will” come, can come freely and receive the gift of eternal life.

Who do you say that Jesus Christ is?

An Extravagant Love

“But You, O Lord, Your mercy-seat love is limitless, reaching higher than the highest heavens.  Your great faithfulness is infinite, stretching over the whole earth.  Your righteousness is unmovable, just like the mighty mountains.  Your judgments are as full of wisdom as the oceans are full of water.  Your tender care and kindness leave no one forgotten, not a man nor even a mouse.

O God, how extravagant is Your cherishing love!  All mankind can find a hiding place under the shadow of Your wings.  All may drink of the anointing from the abundance of Your house.  All may drink their fill from the delightful springs of Eden.  To know You is to experience a flowing fountain, drinking in Your life, springing up to satisfy.  

In the light of Your holiness, we receive the light of revelation.  Lord, keep pouring out Your unfailing love on those who are near You.  Release more of Your blessings to those who are loyal to You.” (Psalm 36:5-10) The Passion Translation Bible


God the Father, Jehovah God, Elohim, Abba.  He is composed of LOVE.  That is what He is and who He is.  Love must have an expression, it must be poured out and shared.  God’s love is a continual fountain that flows out to all of His creation.  Even a field mouse is loved by Him.  God loves to LOVE!  His love is wildly extravagant to His image bearers.  All human beings are created in God’s very image.  No matter if they serve Him or not, they are still created in His image.

He created humans for one purpose: FELLOWSHIP.  FRIENDSHIP. COMPANIONSHIP, INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP.  His extravagant love flows out endlessly, limitlessly to us.  If we only knew the care He provides to us even when we don’t know Him or acknowledge Him.  While we are yet sinners, enemies of the Cross, Jesus still died and paid the price for us to be a friend of Jehovah God.

All down through the history of humans, Jehovah God has tried over and over to have a relationship with us.  And time after time, we have rejected His extravagant love in favor of our own ways.  Finally, He poured Himself into a physical body of a human so He could bring us into an intimate relationship.  Not just to save us from the Lake of Fire, but to pour His extravagant love into our lives here on the earth and throughout all eternity.   What was our response?  We killed Him.  We reviled Him.  We rejected Him.  So what did He do?  He defeated the grave by rising and paving the way for each one of us to return His extravagant love with our extravagant love for Him.

When Jehovah God finds someone who returns His love like this, He pours and pours and pours His presence, His anointing, His blessings into that life until that person truly is a mirror image of Him.  What joy He has when this happens!  I want to be that person.  I want to be a mirror image of the One who loves me extravagantly!  How about you?

The Image Bearers

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” (Zechariah 3:17)

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love..” (John 15:9)

God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

Through Him, we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:2-5)

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” (I John 3:1)


What is an “image bearer?”  It’s a representative of someone very important.  Who is more important than the Creator of the Universe—God.?

Genesis 1:26 says “God said, Let Us (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.”

From the very beginning, God purposed in His heart for US to be His image bearers.  That was His original intent for every human being ever born.  What happened?  Satan stole away the identity of man when Adam and Eve rebelled against God.  They lost their identity as God’s very own image bearers.  This loss was passed on to every human being since that moment.  But God had a plan…

Even BEFORE God created man; when we were all still in His heart, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, made the decision to redeem all mankind BACK to the original condition before the fall of Adam.  Yes, there was no way Abba Father was going to let us just go into the same destruction reserved for Satan and the rest of the rebel spirits!  We are just too precious and valuable to Him.

Revelation 13:8 says “And all the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay him (the Beast) homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world.”

Every human being ever born, no matter how wicked, bad, hateful or evil; is still loved by God.  Yes, that is right.  God LOVES everyone equally.  His heart is that big!  The proof of God’s love is in Romans 5:8 “But God shows and clearly proves His own love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Jesus took our place in the eyes of God.  When God looks at a follower of Jesus, He only sees His blood covering us.  He does not see any sin in us!  We become clean and we enter the Kingdom of God.  That is the best news ever!

The moment we accept Jesus into our heart, we are changed from a sinner to a saint.  Our sins are gone and we are born anew.  The old man is dead and we are alive to Christ.  What does this mean?  It means we have a “do over” from God!  A clean slate to begin a whole new way of life that is full of hope, love, and peace.  Are there problems?  Sure there are problems, but now we have the SOLUTION!  God has a wonderful ability to make all things new.

We are now the Image Bearers of our God and King Jesus Christ.  We are His representatives on the earth.  We must tell others where to find what we have found.

There are so many people who have NO hope.  They are living in darkness and despair.  For many, they escape with drugs or alcohol.  Others escape with pornography or sex.  Why not bring your life to the One Who gave it all for you?  Think no one loves you?  Think again…There is One who went to Hell and back so you wouldn’t have to.  Yes…that is Jesus Christ.

If you are reading this and in a dark place with no way out, there is hope in Jesus Christ.  There really is.  If you are reading this and your life is good, but something is still missing, let Jesus fill your “God Spot.”  Everyone has a place in their heart that is reserved for God.  He is the only One who fits perfectly.  Call on Him today.  It is the best decision you’ll make in your life.
