To God be the glory we have made it to another day. It has been on my heart the move of God the things and places that God is bringing to my life. I don’t know about you all but at time I’m called to a rest and reset.
This is the time that I believe we have to self out Holy Spirit in. This is the time me must make sure it’s the Lord speaking and we are going forth in what God has taught us. this time requires us to be in our Fathers house learning and listening to the next steps and instructions on how to be used in the next steps.
The title today comes from the 2nd chapter of Luke. I have always said that when I need answer to where I am at in life the Father will have me study a book in the bible. I’m grateful that three years ago He gave me this outlet to over flow in. So go on ahead and stick out your cup and let’s get into the word.
- if you are wondering who I am please go to the about me section where you can introduce yourself and get to know who I am. also if this word blesses you, you can follow and like. so that you can get notifications of new post Be Blessed
Luke chapter 2
2:4 Tells us that Joseph went to his home town of Bethlehem the town of David to register his soon to be wife who was then very pregnant Jesus. While in Bethleehem Mary went in labor and gave birth to Jesus.
2:10 The word tells us that an angel came to shepherds and told them not to be afraid that he came with great news that bring joy to the people. “Today in the town of David a savior has been born.
2:13&14 A great company of the heavenly host appears with the angel saying “Peace to those on whom his favor rest.
This word reminds us that Gods favor brings us peace. we are walking in the favor of Gods that at the birth of Jesus we were given Joy for all people. our savior (a person who saves someone or something) was born.
we go to God because when we are confused or stressed. God brings us peace and Joy. we take rest in Him at the moments of distress. This is how we grow, this is how we refuel to the next step. we are taught that Gods plans for us are for God and not evil Jeremiah 29:11 which means that if we are in a moment of why? or I can’t, that means we need to seek the kingdom of God and all it’s righteousness Matthew 6:33.
2:34&35 Simeon prophesy over Jesus in the temple destined to cause the falling and rising, so that the thoughts of many will be revealed.
What are the thoughts of your heart? We always speak about out fruit. When Jesus comes in the thing that is deep in your hearts come out. For some the worst wil come out before the better. We call that purging. Jesus does some spring cleaning. we fall before we rise, this humbles us for our rise. you’ve been there and know how it feels we becodme witnesses of the fall and the rise.
For those that have already fallen, they began to see a new thing and build up! You see kwe either meet Jesus and go to our knees or crawl to Jesus and He picks us up.
2:46-49 Jesus says to Mary and Joesph Didn’t you know I was in my Fathers House? When we begin to build we start at a point where God has us. That’s the time to be still and learn, listen, and ask questions.
When Mary & Joseph finally found 12 year old Jesus, he says; Didn’t you know I had to be in my father’s house.
2:49 Others around us will think we are lost. they’ll be wondering were we are, others won’t even notice us, we have been hidden from their sight.
This is for those who are wondering why they are being ignored. We at times must be in a place of preparation. God is nourishing the grounds, giving the soil everything it needs to grow. This place your spirit is in the Fathers house. This is your time to ask God fyour questions, listen and absorb as much as your being fed.
2:52 Jesus grew in wisdom…. when we take that time we grow in wisdom and obedience
our Job on this earth is to grow in obedience. grow wisdom (excel) and be fisher of men we are walking like Jesus. Jesus took the time to learn and grow in His Fathers house so don’t you neglect that moment for the spirit that lives in you!
