DLynneGarner's Journal, 07 May 2012

Many people struggle with receiving from God. So much so that many today have spiritualized experiencing Him into simple emotional thoughts and feelings. If they feel good they might say that's a God thing. But He is so much more real than that. He wants to be at work in your life in an undeniable way. Only one thing can stop God from working in your life and that is your belief. NOTHING you do or do not do can stop Him, so sin has no effect. satan cannot stop Him, the enemy is defeated except for the power we give him. Only faith is required. God is moved only by faith. Learn the promises of God and then believe for them. God wants you to. Then you can SHOW God so others can believe for His promises too. That's what the gospel is all about. Experiencing God in a real and undeniable way.

John 2:11 "This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His GLORY; and His disciples believed in Him."

Luke 9:32 "But Peter and those with him were heavy with sleep; and when they were fully awake, they saw His GLORY and the two men who stood with Him."

2 Corinthians 3:18 "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the GLORY of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from GLORY to GLORY, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Are you just hoping for a feeling? Are you having difficulty recognizing God's work in your life? Or are you experiencing the GLORY of Christ so often you are seeing your own transformation into His likeness reflected in your mirror?

Our weightloss journey is a perfect time to reflect Him so much others will see Him and desire Him too.

Give it to Jesus. Believe He will take the weight and watch it melt away.

I've learned not to wear makeup to church because more often than not I'll be moved to tears by something. The thing it took me a while to learn is that it isn't about just that feeling on Sundays, its having faith that that power is still moving in my life every moment of every day. Have a blessed day!

Yes! There is nothing wrong with an emotional response. I'm often moved to tears just reading the Word when the Holy Spirit opens my eyes to see some revelation I hadn't seen before. Praise and Worship music moves me. Teachers and preachers move me. The testimonies of others and even my own can move me. Emotions are a gift, but emotion is just a part of it and scripture teaches us we are to be in control over our emotions. It's that being consciously aware of the Lord's presence in our every day, and our every hour, that enables us to see Him at work. But that will move us too, enough to tell everyone we can about Him. That is glorification too, His and Him in us. You have a blessed day too.
