Create a Kaleidoscope of Colour in Life


If you can embrace the truth of your union with Christ, you will begin to see life from a completely new perspective.  It is challenging, but the reward is a total liberation into the grace of God.

Try this. Assume that God has forgiven every one of their sins? Suddenly you will start to look at people, things, and events differently. If you assume a positive message of reconciliation between God and man life little by little starts to well up into a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours and the black and white world begins to look very old hat.

We all need to see colour, a beautiful prism of how we are wonderfully and beautifully created. Are original state back in the Garden of Pleasure was the mirror image of a vibrant, creative, wonderful, joyous, energetic, delightful, hopeful,  excited God.  Colour is just us going back to our original state.

We are easily tainted by the deceitfulness of the world, but our true nature is to live in the fullness of God. So that in all we do an in all we show we experience the glory of our new creation. In effect our view of God and life creates the way we view everyone around us.

Every interaction is an opportunity for you to see the life of creation in others. Every interaction is a chance for you to believe that God has forgiven everyone their sins.  Knowing that God in Christ is not counting sins against us is the message of Gods favour that brings us into harmony with himself.

Look around are the people who you come in contact with, and see them as forgiven. When they do bad things, when they act badly towards you, remember they are forgiven. When you can’t understand why they are acting like they are towards you, just remember their sins are not being counted against them.

Assume the office of being a reconciler and begin to flourish in the freedom of forgiveness.

Everybody you come in touch with, those that cut you up on the motorway, those that push ahead of you in the queue, those that tell lies about you to make themselves popular, all have been forgiven at the cross, before they were born.

When we begin to view everyone as loved by God, forgiven by God, we start to see the awesome potential in each other’s lives and that potential begins inside us.

Six Questions to Get Your Emotions and Thoughts Closer with God.



God does not communicate with us the way we commonly know and understand ‘communication’. Now this may seem strange at first, but God is infinitely more intimate with us than any other relationship in our lives. In fact, what we think as a close relationship is actually still quite distant when compared to God. If you consider that in reality we don’t know the thoughts of the people we love the most and they don’t know our thoughts. We can hide feelings of love and anger from each other deep within our hearts.

But with God, this form of communication does not work, because the Holy Spirit is far more intimate with us and God.  When come into relationship with God we actually become entwined in God, His Spirit becomes our spirit. He communicates to from His Spirit. He speaks to us Spirit to our heart.

It takes time to cultivate a unique place in our hearts and therefore our minds. A place where the inner voice of God goes beyond verbal tones and comes on a frequency that runs through our spirit into our hearts. For this communication is the vast mystery of our divine new creation relationship with Christ.

So here in the mystery of God’s voice within us, how do we let God in and let his grace work in our hearts? How do we tune our hearts to his frequency? To begin with we need to open our hearts to his Spirit and here are a six questions we can ask ourselves to help us :-

1.      Do I let God reveal to me how right I am with him in Christ Jesus?

In other words, I am a New Creation in Christ Jesus.
Christ has given me his new life and I am alive to Christ and dead to sin.
In fact, Paul tells me in Ephesians 4:23 “that I am holy and righteous in Christ Jesus”.
To hear God’s voice effectively in my heart I need to let God reveal to me my New Creation reality and give him permission to change and renew my mind to come in alignment with the truth of the finished work of Christ.
The more I let God reveal Christ to me, the more I can know that “As He is so now am I.

2.       Do I give God an opportunity to be God?

Every moment is an opportunity for God to speak and connect with me.
Too often we so consumed with the influence of the world and the busyness of life we forget that the God who created the universe lives in us.
It is easily done, but it is easily rectified.
In every moment let go and let God be God to you.
Let you consciousness be full of Christ and free from the world.

3.       Do I give myself chances – or do I easily write myself off?

Every day is a new beginning; every moment is the first step forward.
God is totally committed to you and He has promised never to leave you or forsake you.
Thank him for his forgiveness and your eternal redemption
Thank you for his love and his new life inside your heart
Thank him that there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.

4.       Do I give myself permission to drink as deeply from Christ as I desire?

Remind yourself that you no longer have to wait.
That you have an overflowing river of the Holy Spirit living in you.
You can dive in and be soaked by God’s presence and glory at any time
You have the bottomless well of God’s grace in your heart.
This seems almost too good to be true, so remind yourself to the truth of the resurrection power alive in you.
Give yourself permission to drink from the river of God’s life within you.

5.       Do I know His power alive in me, in the midst of daily life?

Life flows from your thoughts and comes out in your words
The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in you.
Relax, connect and acknowledge God’s power alive in you.
Let your mind and emotions live in the fullness of Christ.
For God can do exceedingly, abundantly above all you could ask or think according to the power that works within you.

6.       Do I let my heart respond to His unconditional love working in me?

You are loved unconditionally by God, you are his beloved child.
It is time to love yourself.
God loves you, so love yourself in Christ.
You are amazing, beloved, precious, beautiful, captivating and the delight of Gods heart.
You are prize that Christ came and died for,
You are incredibly and wonderfully created to be loved by the infinite God
You are loved, love your self
For you are a son or daughter of God.

Let Christ sow his word seeds into your heart, so he can produce a harvest of his grace, healing and provision which you can reap in your life. As you relax and rest in his words for you, you will find that your confidence in Christ will grow, your trust in his commitment to you will be established in you, and your delight in your heart will start to overflow when you experience His delight in you. For the truth of who you are as a New Creation in Christ will motivate and capture your heart and emotions so that you can begin to know and experience the height, breadth, length and width of the love of God.

God in Christ is bringing forth the blossoms that you could not produce.

Keep Your Back straight and Your Arms even


This was the advice my physio gave to me after my year long sessions came to an end.
“Always make sure that when you stand, keep your back straight and your arms even.”
The simple act of keeping your back in correct alignment with your body.
The better that alignment of your body is the better you hold yourself.
Alignment with the correct posture is a physical must.
Alignment with the truth of who we are in Christ is a spiritual must.
For knowing the truth will set us free and alignment to that truth will encourage us to stand.
For knowing the truth is an awakening, coming alive to the work of redemption paid for us in Christ.
For living the truth is liberation.  Freedom is the gift of Christ to us, renewing our mind and thoughts with the truth.
For in our New Creation life we have God’s presence living inside us.
For in our New Creation life we have the power of the resurrection living inside us.
For in our New Creation life we have a river of living Holy Spirit water flowing inside us.
For in our New Creation life Christ now abides in us and we are complete in him.
For in our New Creation life Christ has made us his dwelling place
For in our New Creation life the glory of God lives in us.
For in our New Creation life we are sons and daughters of God.
For in our New Creation life Christ keeps our back straight and lifts us up to be seated with him heavenly places.

Amidst the Chaos God is Speaking


Amidst all the chaos of life we are given the opportunity for liberation. Each one of us has the perfection of this very moment. For now the Kingdom of Heaven has been birthed and planted into everyone that has become a New Creation in Christ. What our heart desires lies within us: and the fullness of Christ lies within our hearts.

The stark naked truth is that everyone in Christ has the manifestation and glory of God resident within them. This is the truth that can change the world and the realisation has the power to change the way we believe, think and act.

When you see Christ in every believer, all separation dissolves. For the life of Christ alive in us goes beyond gender, race, culture, class, wealth, job-title or any other label, all boundaries evaporate and you find your life in the ocean of God’s grace and liberation given to us in Christ.

Every moment is an opportunity to awaken and live in our true identity in Christ. The trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in sacred oneness in wholeness inside our heart and God is an adventure into His love poured out into every aspect of existence.

God is speaking to us in those everyday events that seem insignificant, those magical moments, those mundane seconds, those simple acts that make up each minute of every day.

You can strike up a conversation with God whenever you want, in the supermarket, in the car, on a park bench, waiting for a train, in the queue for a sandwich, busy, hectic, noisy, quiet or still it does not matter, makes no difference, God is there interested and wanting to talk, all you have to do is listen.

For God is not something you search for. God is the New Creation reality alive within us, when all separation between us and the Holy Spirit dissolves in the truth of the finished work of Christ.

In deep union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, there is a holy marriage, which awakens our heart and senses to our restoration and wholeness in Christ. When we stop searching, seeking and fighting for a connection with God and live in the peace and freedom of Christ’s life alive within us, it will be increasing apparent that God is speaking us all and all of us can hear and receive the words of God.

Life

Jesus is Life…and that means there is no death in Him at all! He is exuberant, joyful, fulfilling, ever-blessing and ever-refreshing life..

His very life is our life, sustaining and carrying us along in Life. His Spirit of Life gave us our breath.

In Him is no death – this tells me He is never, ever destroying me, hurting me, tearing me down, crushing me, or sucking the joy or vigor from me – NO! He is always building me up, invigorating me, filling and fulfilling me!

Jesus said eternal life is knowing Him, and to be part of His very life, eternal and immutable, is to know Him with a depth of intimacy that I can’t even fathom.

Jesus is the fullness of pure love, without a bit of harshness,  He is refreshing and enlivening, never taking away from my quality of life but always making it infinitely better.

Jesus is life ... the living water of the Holy Spirit bubbling up and overflowing in my life.

Jesus is a deep well of constant reassurance and pure love and grace inside me.

Jesus is life, joy and freedom inside me.

Radiance

There is a radiance in the delight of God
that he is delighted with me
that he is delighted with Christ in me
that he has entered  time and space
that he has made my heart his home
my life is now his life
my resurrection happened the moment he entered my life and dwelt in me
that is my New Creation life
I am created new in Christ
not washed clean but created new
my hearts is new
my spirit is new
I now feel and know the Holy Spirit alive in me
and everything that says it is not so
has been taken away and destroyed
I am who God says I am
and the same radiance that lights up creation lives in me
never to be extinguished
but to shine in me throughout eternity
to transform me into the very image of God.

Reborn into Innocence

In Christ you were reborn into a time of innocence.

You were reborn into the goodness of God into a New Creation devoid of evil. For where there is the light of God darkness has to be extinguished. Light and darkness do not share the same space.

It is the revelation that you now in Christ, you are Holy and righteous in your Spirit and the former darkness that invaded your thinking, your desires and your actions has been eradicated by your new birth into the fulness of God.

Our past, our sin tainted nature died with Christ.

And just as the natural, nature with the abundance of yellow daffodils, Spring gives us a real picture as we see them take root and flourish in the rich phase of a new season, we now in the spirit receive the purity  and innocence of new life.

For within us even before we believed and were made new there was calling that believed in a place of joy, an existence of bliss. That we we created to be part of an eternal dance of love.

Today you have in Christ been reconciled back into the arms of your Father and the love your heart cried out has been placed into your new innocent heart.

When Did We Stop Listening?

There are voices all around us.
Talking
Shouting
Whispering
Trying to get our attention.
Telling us, informing us, calling us, advising us, speaking at us.
Principles
Laws
Steps
Giving us meaning, efficiency, substitutes and functions.
If we listen!
More the often we hear a series of problems that need to be solved or principles that need to mastered.
But the desire of Christ is not to engage our intellect but to ignite our hearts.
He whispers to us with His passion,
He captures us with His dreams
He heals us with His wounds,
He delivers us from our fears,
He wraps us in His beauty,
He reveals to us His mystery,
He touches us with his ecstasy,
He sings to us with His poetry,
He loves us with His everlasting delight.
If we listen
Christ is calling to us in every moment of life.
Inviting us into his life of beauty and intimacy.
Awakening us to His glory alive inside of us.
His voice is always speaking to us,
When did we stop listening?

Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant

Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant between God and man by being both parties in the covenant at the same time, joining us together in such a deep way in human flesh and cementing our union forever in His body! In Christ, we meet and join hands with Christ in intimate relationship!
God is saying to us through Jesus, “I’m here with you, always have been and always will be. I am not going anywhere. I am never getting out of this relationship. I am never pushing you away or rejecting you. For I have tied us together forever and there is nothing you could say, think, do or even believe that will break this union we have! I will never leave you or let you go! I will be here for you through thick and thin. You can’t shake me! You can’t get rid of Me! I am in this relationship for keeps, and I will hold you close to My heart forever!”

Tied To God

Jesus came and tied us to God permanently. Jesus is God and He is man. He is God and man in one body! Jesus shows us what we humans are, that we were created to be in union with God, we were made God compatible – not separate from God but made of Him and existing in Him and even indwelt by and in union with Him! He shows us we aren’t hopelessly alienated from God – that is only in our minds, heaped upon us as we try to live under religion’s demands and perspective.

In Christ we are actually one with God and He with us! Union with God isn’t an unattainable goal but the starting point of our journey from which we launch out into real life and the pleasure of enjoying friendship with our Father!

Our reference turns out, not to be Adam (who felt he was ‘just flesh and dust’, which left him feeling separate from God), but to be Christ (who knew He was in the Father and the Father was in Him)!

Finding out that this is our reference helps us realize that we can actually in Christ have a real relationship with our Father and not feel like pulling back in shame or in fear of what He might do to us. For Jesus comes and gives us a different and true picture of the real God! That God is for us and will never leave us, no matter what we do! This God is so committed to relationship with us that He took on our human flesh form, permanently tying Himself to our humanity.

Our Story

Too often in life we start at the beginning and work our way to the end.
Like a bestselling novel we start with the rags, work our way through the storms and heartbreak before we reach the final happily ever after.
And more often than not we identify with the storms and heartbreak of the present  because that is the centre of our story.
But this amazingly is not reality.
For the reality of the universe and history is Jesus Christ.
And the declaration of Jesus is "IT IS FINISHED. "
So the story of our life is now the story of our life in Christ.
Our story now starts with the finished work of Christ.
Our story starts at the end and works it's way back to the present.
Our story starts from the victory of the resurrection.
Our story starts from the finish line and the gold medal placed around our neck
Our story starts from the New Creation.
And the Holy Spirit works in and through us to declare and show us that we now live in the truth of the New Creation.
We now look back to the cross and now live in the truth of the resurrection .
We don't look forward to the resurrection we live in the day of the resurrection.
Christ is our finished line.
And we are complete in him. .
Jesus Christ is our past, present and future.
We are now alive to Him.
And all the promises of God are YES and AMEN in Christ.

Complete

One of the most amazing revelations of the Bible is that God accepts you.
God accepts you because Christ's finished work at the cross was complete.
His finished work means that today in Christ you have
Complete victory
Complete freedom
Complete restoration
Complete wholeness
Complete release
Complete life
Complete restoration
Complete peace
And you have been filled with complete faith.
And you are accepted in the grace and goodness of God
And you are the realisation of what the goodness and love of God is.
You are the worship of God's heart
You are the fulfilment of God's dreams
You are the delight of God's desire.
And the best thing you could ever do is receive and delight in God's love for you.
For as you love yourself God is glorified.
As you love yourself God is worshiped.
For loving yourself in Christ is manifesting what God is like.
For in Christ you are the evidence of the love and goodness of God.

Opportunities

Every day we have hundreds of opportunities to engage with the negativity that surrounds us.
In a world full of diagnosis and treatment
We engage the destructive by nullifying it's pain.
More often than not we think in terms of managing and limiting the onslaught of bad news.
But engaging the negativity does not get rid of it,
Instead it is defeated by the positive.
And the positive is rooted in the truth.
For it is knowing the truth that sets us free.
It is a change of perspective
A change of view
A transfer from darkness into light.
A growing awareness of the Holy Spirit inside us, teaching us to realising the New Creation life that now lives inside of us.
The starting point for every situation and circumstance should be Christ.
For in Christ we have arrived and are seated  with Christ in heavenly places.
Christ is the answer.
So let us start with the answer before we are consumed with the questions.
