11/13/15  FAITH AND THE WHEELBARROW

Today I received this Word to Ponder with anointed hands and sent it out.

 

DONíT BACK UP 1/17/98
When I send you, I have a job for you to do. When you accept these assignments, things that you need are set in motion to bring you the Words and the tools. However, this is much greater than you. The lives that you touch must also be prepared, for I puzzle all things together. I send forth My angels to weave together the preparations for these special times of ministry.

 

Understand that if you waver in your faith and back up, this brings everything to a halt, Ė not just in the natural but also in the supernatural. Therefore, remember, that when I send you, there is much riding along on your commitments. Do not waver in your faith and hold back in the Spirit. Rather, go forth with boldness, knowing that whom I send I also back with signs following.

 

ďAnd they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.Ē (Mark 16:20 KJV)

 

Then I went back to bed after sending the above Word to Ponder out:

 

HEARD AND SAW:  Bold faith.  Yes go forth.  I saw a wheelbarrow that was carrying someone, although I didnít see who it was carrying.  Faith is like a wheel barrow.  Your life is in My hands.  In My care.  I am not going to dump you. 

 

11/14/03  QUOTE BOB JONES: THE WHEELBARROW

This thing that is higher than faith is called trust.  When you really begin to trust the Lord with your life.  Faith has been working in there where you can totally trust Him in any situation.  I have used this illustration many times.  Faith is believing the Lord Jesus Christ can push a wheelbarrow on a tightrope across Niagara Falls.  I believe He can do it, Heís God.  Trust is getting into the wheelbarrow.  And even when you believe He can do it, you still have a hold of the handles.

 

Another thing we need to do when we have to trust, is called rest.  When we can sit down in that wheelbarrow and enjoy the trip, no matter how scary it is.  When you really begin to trust the Lord and faith has begun to work in there, youíll come to a place where you can totally trust Him.  Youíll eventually be going from faith to trust to rest.  This is Godís will for your life.  That He have a people that will come into that place of trust and rest in Him where He can trust and rest in them.

 

Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) 1 NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

 

FAITH

 

Strong's Greek Dictionary
4102. πιστις pistis
Search for G4102 in KJVSL

πιστις pistis pis'-tis

from 3982; persuasion, i.e. credence; moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstractly, constancy in such profession; by extension, the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself:óassurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity.

See Greek 3982

 

FAITH IN RIGHTEOUSNESS

I have been pondering about having faith in our own righteousness, which is walking in right choices and feeling like one is in right standing with God.  The problem is that when you have more faith in your own right doing, than the Lordís righteousness on your behalf, it is like being in right standing thus you feel safe in the wheel barrow, but if you mess up, then He will dump you out.   The truth is that right standing relates more to favor and relationship and leaning on Him.

 

HEARD:  That is My Word sweet one.  Condemnation is not of Me.  You have been bought.  I paid for you, all of you.  This is redemption.

 

Romans 3:24-26 (AMP) 24 [All] are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus, 25 Whom God put forward [before the eyes of all] as a mercy seat and propitiation by His blood [the cleansing and life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation, to be received] through faith. This was to show Godís righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over and ignored former sins without punishment. 26 It was to demonstrate and prove at the present time (in the now season) that He Himself is righteous and that He justifies and accepts as righteous him who has [true] faith in Jesus.

 

REDEMPTION

Strong's Greek Dictionary
629. απολυτρωσις apolutrosis
Search for G629 in KJVSL

απολυτρωσις apolutrosis ap-ol-oo'-tro-sis

from a compound of 575 and 3083; (the act) ransom in full, i.e. (figuratively) riddance, or (specially) Christian salvation:ódeliverance, redemption.

See Greek 575
See Greek 3083

 

WORD TO PONDER:  REST IN MY WHEELBARROW 11/13/15

Dear heart, I know you have suffered rejection, betrayal and even self-rejection. Please know that I never condemn you for your mistakes.  I only want you to make different choices and grow up into My loving image.  When you placed your life into My care, I have promised to carry you even through your old age.  I will never, never leave you.  I will never, never abandon you. 

 

Faith is like being carried in My wheelbarrow.  I AM the One Who moves you, I AM the One Who lifts your burdens and carries you to where you belong.  I want to teach you to rest  in My ability to take care of you and handle your load.  I promise I will not drop you.  Your journey in Me is not about who you are, it is about Who I AM within your life.  Rest dear one and let Me love you.

 

Isaiah 46:3-4 Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, who are borne by me from birth, who are carried from the womb: 4 And even to your old age I am he; and even to gray hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.

 

Isaiah 53:4 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
