“The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.””
Luke 10:17-20 ESV
Knowing that you are accepted and that your name is written in the Book of Life is a cause for daily celebration and praise to God. To be grateful and rejoice in the Holy Spirit is such a wonderful and blessed life. To have peace no matter what is happening in the world around you. To be free from condemnation and to experience the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as your normal, is something that everyone should expect and seek to experience by believing the Bible as Truth and rejecting all other reasoning and rationale.
When I believed what God said, I received it. When I questioned God’s goodness and mercy for my life and believed that I had to do something to earn Salvation or acceptance, I was in darkness. All that was required of me was to believe on Jesus and to trust God’s plan for my life.
I didn’t have to beg God to help me, because He had already sent Jesus to finish it all and now I can receive the Truth and live in the amazing Grace and glory of God. Because I chose to believe and let go of wrong thinking.
It’s good to believe, but to doubt is to be blind and deaf to all that God has for us. So ONLY BELIEVE!
It’s good to repent and ask the Lord to show you what you need to understand and what you need to be doing.
I know that there is nothing better than accepting Jesus and being accepted into the Kingdom of God. I hope and pray that everyone has experiential knowledge of God so that they will never have to fear again, but can receive everything they need to overcome this world by the blood of Jesus and the Word of their testimony.
