ALL IN – Day 60 of 60!

Wow. Sixty days of listening to the Holy Spirit and communicating to you on what it means to be “ALL IN”. God has made clear to me that each of you who have been faithful in taking this journey with me will see a new manifestation of His glory in your life. God is and remains a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.

For the rest, if you go back to Day 1 and read chronologically you also will see the same blessings. In the name of Jesus Christ I thank God for the blessings He has in store for you.

It is amazing how God has grown me through this process. I have come to appreciate even more the sacrifice Jesus gave on Calvary. I understand just how “all in” He was because he paid the ultimate price simply because He loved us, his creation, and wanted us to once again know what it is like to be at one with Him in the Spirit.

I understand better Romans 8 and more specifically the “Final Four” verses which should bring us even more excitement than the upcoming “Final 4” basketball tournament.

Remember you are “all in” and Christ is “all in” you. Nothing can separate you from Christ if you have truly
1) PROFESSED &
2) been POSSESSED by the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

“As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:36-39 KJV)

Now go forth from this day forward “Making Christ Visible”. Day by day in every way in the power of the Holy Spirit you shall reflect the Christ living in you! The old you is dead and you are indeed a new creation. Press forward!!

I love you and thank you for your prayers as God used me on this journey. Next up ” Letters from S.T. to W.W.” Follow up on http://www.FreshStartChristian.com to find starring date.

ALL IN – Day 59 of 60!!

Isaiah 54:17 tells us who are “all in” that No weapon formed against you shall prosper. . .” Simple question is does your faith evidence daily your belief in this promise from God? Starting at verse 31 of Isaiah God breaks it down even further for us.

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Romans 8:31-35 KJV)

Get this in your head everyday when you rise up. Say to yourself “Day by day in every way with the leading of the Holy Spirit I shall accomplish all God has for me to do today.”

Yes You Can!!!!

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (Romans 8:26-30)

When you feel weak and just can’t seem to be able to do it – let go completely mentally and focus on the power of Christ residing in you. God hears exactly what you need because of the direct link in the Spirit of those who are All In (called for His purpose). What you are going through is simply preparing you for the more God has for you as you are being transformed daily more in His image. Simply believe and act accordingly regardless. Say to yourself – YES I CAN – DAY BY DAY IN EVERY WAY WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT I SHALL SUCCEED IN ALL HE HAS PLACED BEFORE ME. I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR BECAUSE THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTED CHRIST LIVES IN ME.

Back to back. God will reward our patience.
“Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.” (Romans 8:21-25 KJV)

My hope is steadfast because it is based on my faith in Jesus!!

ALL IN – Day 56 of 60!

Sorry – but I closed my eyes for a minute and it was the next day. Great thing is we serve a God who knows we are not perfect. He knows our hearts and he simply wants us to get right back up and not quit when we fall short. We are still all in even if our for a minute in our mind. Nothing can separate us from the love of God!! We are still his.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, (Romans 8:16-20 KJV)

ALL IN – Day 55 of 60!

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. (Romans 8:11-15 KJV)

Understand? You have no need to fear how others respond to you because your standard is no longer flesh but the Spirit. You now belong to a new family and you have been sealed by the Spirit of Christ. You have the right to call on your new Abba, Father because you now belong to him.

ALL IN – Day 54 of 60!

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (Romans 8:6-10 KJV)

If you are “all in” Christ ‘s spirit is “all in” you. You are no longer required to flesh controlled because a change has occurred on the inside of you which should be visible or evident on the outside. Something in you wants and yearns to serve God. You don’t want to disappoint him because you finally see the other side.

You recognize that the old you could not comply with God’s law of love because you hated (had enmity against) it. You stayed angry, couldn’t forgive, lusted, wanted what other people had, and never were at peace on the inside because the Spirit of God was not “all in” you. You couldn’t help preferring the gym, sports event, tv show, Internet, music and books emphasizing things that tingled your flesh. Inside you yearned for the things that would continue your lifeless life where you were constantly seeking the next thing to give you a temporary sensation of being alive instead of the ongoing sense of death you felt because things always seem to be crashing in on you!

However, the compassion you feel, the forgiveness you freely give, the rejoicing at the blessings of others, the calmness you now possess in the midst of every thing going crazy and your consistent need to be in the midst of other believers to worship and praise God through your time, generosity in giving, and willingness to share the gifts God has given to you make clear you are alive in Christ and no longer the walking dead. Praise God for the peace that comes once Christ comes in. You know you have all you need and for the first time in your life you know you are complete.

Condemnation can’t and will not work on you anymore. You now walk in the Spirit daily.
