I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have all the answers and don’t know about my future, but I do know the One who holds it and that’s all that matters to me.
Jesus has always been faithful to me.
The experience doesn’t have to end. The zeal and excitement doesn’t have to go away. Our entire walk with God ought to be one big experience if only we’d recognize that we never depart from His presence and that we are the dwelling place of the living God. The Kingdom of God is within you. The kingdom of God is one huge party.
What time is it???? IT’S PARTY TIME
So much glory on this guy…15 notes
Be still and know I’m God.
What Jesus said while He walked the earth, and the people’s response was important, not just because of who He was, but because all He did was a reflection of what His Father was doing in heaven. By accepting His identity as the Son of God, and His actions as the will of God at face value, his followers were aligned with heaven in such a way that they began to experience the miraculous signs and wonders of grace that filled the Father with joy to lavish upon His Son. Honoring Jesus’ identity opened the people up to multiple levels of heavenly glory. The glory of honoring the Father was an extension of the glory of honoring the Son. This is our example to follow. To take the reality of heaven, revealed at face value is to open ourselves up to a life of miracles.23 notes
Not of it.
micah is pretty much the tumblr big brother. he is one of the most positive people i follow on here and he is so encouraging always. he is taking advantage of tumblr in a beautiful way; using his influence to spread joy, provoke thought and just to remind us to not take all the knocks life throws at us too seriously. from his precious gifs to his advice giving, it is all to uplift and assist. he’s an ally im grateful for.
this is accurate, and if you’re not following Micah, you’re doing tumblr (ESPECIALLY Christian Tumblr!) incorrectly.
The miracle of grace is that Jesus finds us, like He found His disciples wrapped up in various storms, disoriented by darkness, controlled and battered by wind and not getting very far on our own. And when we cannot see Him – when we cannot perceive more than inches in front of our faces, in His mercy He comes to us.
This perhaps is one of the most accurate, and familiar depictions of a Christian’s life as we continually discover Jesus; knowing that we have no hope to reach Him in our present conditions, Christ finds us in the darkest, stormiest places, reveals His character and calms our fears. The only natural response to the revelation of the character of Christ is the same one of the disciples, gladness. He is the desire of the nations - everybody wants a King like Jesus, and when we partner with what He’s doing, we are no longer at the mercy of our situation, of what we can see in the natural. Instead, like the millions of Christ-followers who have come before us, we are drenched in His grace under the power, mercy and protection of the Father. This is the shift in our identity and position after encountering Jesus. This is the supernatural lifestyle.
Reflections on John 6:16-21
The personification of Jesus is so awesome - it’s both the wonder of grace that we reside under, and the beauty of holiness we are called to.
For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
(2 Corinthians 1:8-10, ESV)
