Our Personal Relationship

Posted By on Friday, October 27, 2017

Our personal relationship with the Lord must be established and maintained upon a firm foundation and be in agreement with the written Word of God. The Lord responds in a higher level of relationship to those who are standing on the bedrock of the full redemption that He has accomplished in their behalf, and are trusting in His faithfulness, alone.

This requires of us a breaking out of the mold of past insecurities (our house built upon the sand), and an entering into the security of being seated with Jesus in His Throne, at the right hand of all power and authority (our house built upon a rock).

Here, as we rest in the victory that Jesus gained for us upon the cross, our Heavenly Father, who brought Jesus forth into resurrection life from a grave that appeared to be a total defeat, will also lift us from our place of discouragement and vacillation into an overcoming victory in His presence.

Each of us desires to be wanted, appreciated, and understood, as this is built within our makeup. We were created in His likeness; therefore, this desire is also in the One who created us. Thus, the Lord desires that we come to Him in trust and appreciation for His redemption in our behalf.

“Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that hears these sayings of Mine, and does them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:24- 27
