BELIEVING GOD IS NOT PASSIVE
What have I called you to
sweetheart? Just trust Me.
TO TRUST GOD:
After studying the
following section of scripture, I am understanding that
this whole month I have been fighting to overcome
condemnation and see how it opens the door to fear,
which is the opposite of faith or trust God. When I
truly understand Who God is, I become grounded in His
love and that changes everything. Learning to trust God
is completely intertwined with knowing His love.
WHAT IS MATURITY?
As we remain and dwell in
God's love, there comes a time that we have open
confidence and not condemnation when we are accused by
the enemy before the throne of God. Why? Because we
will have finished growing into the full maturity of
experiencing His love for us. This loving relationship
is an ever ending circle of mutual reciprocation, He
loves/ we love/ He loves/ we love. When we have
consummated that divine interchange, our knowledge of
His love (Who He is) will thrust out all alarm, fear and
terror because once we know His love, we no longer fear
punishment and demonic torment. To the degree we fear,
we do not know His love. To the degree we love, we know
1 John 4:16-19
And we have
known and believed the love that God has for us. God is
love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God
in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that
we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
because as He is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in
love; but perfect love casts out fear,
because fear involves torment. But
he who fears has not
been made perfect in love. We love Him
because He first loved us.

Rom 8:35-39 NKJV
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or
nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: "For
Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted
as sheep for the slaughter." Yet in all these things we
are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I
am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor
principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things
to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created
thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now
salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and
the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of
our brethren, who accused them before our God day and
night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the
blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,
and they did not love their lives to the death.

returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem;
and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
But I have greater witness than that of John: for the
works which the Father hath given me to finish,
the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the
Father hath sent me.
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made
perfect in one; and that the world may know that
thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast
2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most
gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,
which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of

Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by
works was faith made perfect?
