Chill Bumps and Promises

Hey there!  So glad to have you "stop on by" my blog today!
I hope this little short and sweet post makes you smile and encourages you in life!

I had chill bumps the other day (some people call them goose bumps), but it wasn't from the cold Ohio weather - it was actually from being excited about truth I heard from a sermon! The truth really was something I needed to hear - I just love how God orchestrates life like that!  I love how He knows what I need for encouragement in my walk and relationship with Him and He acts on it!  What love He has for us a giving love - such a real love! 

{Rest} - something I need on a lot of on more than one life level right now.  I really need to get to bed sooner (I'm bad at the night owl thing but it's taking it's toll. eek.)  And I'm needing to rest in Who God is and who I am in Him too.   Sometimes it feels like, "Well, I just can't do that." or "How do I create that state of being?"  I absolutely love how Dr. Tony Evans describes the rest of Elohim - The Almighty Creator (love that name of God!).

(The following is a paraphrase of some of Dr. Evan's sermon - and there's a quote from him as well!)

God has rest pre-planned for us.  Our obedience enables us to experience it!  You don't have to create a "resting in God" - you can enter into it's already existence that God created since before time!  Don't get caught up in trying to create it - just walk in it!  It's that simple - quiet your heart to listen to God's promptings and then obey Him and experience rest.

Ephesians 2:10

10" For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." 

"God's rest has already been sanctified for you - it's already been set apart with your name on it!
Your purpose has your name on it!
Your peace has your name on it!
Your provision has your name on it!
Your well being has your name on it!
God has already written your name on His purposes!...
Don't miss what Elohim has already created a long time ago for you to walk in!"
(by being restless - blazing your own trail and neglecting walking with Him) You will never regret obeying and walking with the Way, the Truth and the Life!!!!

Matthew 11:28-30

28" Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Also as a note to add to the truth of your name being written on God's promises (by the way - there's a TON of promises for you - search the Bible and find them!) ... Jesus is one of God's most INCREDIBLE promises and you were written on His heart!  He was born for you and His love for you is why He went to the cross! Wowzers! THAT is reason to celebrate Christmas - HE is the reason for the season indeed!!!!

2 Corinthians 1:19-21

19 "For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.
20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;"

Rest in Him friends! I'm cheering you on in claiming the rest He has already provided for you!

This is my last post of 2016 so Merry Christmas and blessings to you!!!! See you here in the New Year!!!!!!!!
