Are my eyes open?

November 12, 2012 Leave a comment

There are many mysteries with God. But His reality is plain enough. All anyone has to do is open their eyes. The reality is right in front of us.

You can’t hide the truth. He is and He is love. He is and He is light. Plain enough to see that.

But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! Romans 1:18-23

Who is in control?

He has already won the victory. He is seated on the throne. It is done. There is nothing left to do to establish who is in control in God’s world (Kingdom). It is clear it is Jesus.

And, this is a reality. Not a promise. He is making everything new. It is not something for me to get later in heaven. It is now. He is in the process of doing it and will finish it.

It is true. I can count on it. He can be trusted.

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Revelation 21:5

Shut down self-criticism

Self criticism, even when it is deserved, leaves us crippled. We hobble around on crutches pretending no one sees. They see we can’t get out of ourselves. They see our selfishness.

Practicing love, getting outside of ourselves, shuts self criticism right down. God knows us and He knows what we need. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He doesn’t condemn us but shows His steadfast love day after day. He puts it into practice.

My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality. It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves. 1 John 3:18-20

May we love like God loves. May we put it into practice.
