Heaven Pt. 148: We Win!

100_1786

The poor will see and be glad—

you who seek God, may your hearts live!

33The Lord hears the needy

and does not despise his captive people.

34Let heaven and earth praise him,

the seas and all that move in them,

35for God will save Zion

and rebuild the cities of Judah.

Then people will settle there and possess it;

36the children of his servants will inherit it,

and those who love his name will dwell there. Psm 69:32-36

When I set out to do a biblical word study concerning  Heaven (The Heaven Posts)  I really didn’t know how many places the word itself would take me. But we certainly have been round about all sorts of spiritual topics haven’t we?

Today for instance we are talking about disabled ability.

Over the course of thirty something years of Christianity I have come to know myself as a weak man. I know my faults, failures and limitations better than anyone. I count myself among the poor, the needy and the helpless …more now than I did when I first accepted Christ, but I also count myself among the provided for, the able and the helped as well.

In myself I can do nothing. At least so Jesus tells me in John 15. But in Him, with Him, by Him Oh now that’s a different story!

You see “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!” Phil. 4 .

I am ” made more than a conqueror through Christ!” Rom. 8 .

And so “forgetting what is behind I press onward toward the high calling of Christ!” Phil 3

Christian you are probably standing in a position right now that looks entirely impossible. Truth be told it probably is or it would be if you had to deal with the situation in your own power or strength; BUT YOU DON’T!!! We believers never go anywhere alone. Christ comes with us; So begin acting on that truth and involve Him in your situation. God will save you like He will save Zion! Praise His name because in the end we win!

  1. I kept saying “amen” through this.
    My immediate response to most calls to service from God is “I can’t do that!” and He gently agrees with me, telling me that of course “I” (by myself) can’t do it, but HE IN ME can do anything. As I look back on so many “impossible” accomplished things over the years, all I can do is shake my head in wonder, knowing that I, myself, could not have done any of them, and I praise Him for the enormous privilege of being used by Him to fulfill His purpose.
