You come to a realization, as most any person would. Having known your past, your potential, your capabilities and all of the instances that those tendencies produced. The human, sees the undeserving, the spirit sees the servitude. The human sees the faults, the spirit sees the blueprint, the renovation & the completion.
My spirit has had much time, running the show. It has ruled over the flesh effectively enough for me to trust it. I have yielded to it and am quite happy with it's explicit & direct purpose over my life and interactions. It is the guiding force of my Life, the Holy Spirit that God promised and placed within me.
So many are facing a soon to come, decision time, lets hope they choose correctly. lets hope they haven't forfeited their umpteenth chance. Which side of the fence will you be on or land on when all is shaken? Relationship is the leveraging force not laws of religion. God designed relationship as the intimate space between consciousness'. Religion which man designed, constructs laws & rules to eliminate infringements. It is written that no man can come to the Father lest it through His Son, Jesus the Lord. There is no incantation, sign of the cross or meat eatin' day of the week that is powerful enough to save anyone. Only through confessing our sins, professing His name and honoring His name through submissive obedience.
The entire purpose of His plan and the work He performed was to provide what we couldn't and perpetually place us in the state of dependency. How else can anyone be a child of God unless you are one of His dependents?! In order to be saved, to be forgiven, to go to Heaven, you simply must accept this role as well as appreciate it.
Recognizing His provision, power, protection and prosperity, over all things! Relationship leads to trust, submission and ultimate peace. Religion leads to lawlessness, loopholes and lack of understanding. Religion sent Jesus to die a horrific death. Relationship sent Him to sit at the right hand of the Father, having earned full custody of all those promised to Him, as every hair on our heads is numbered (*Luke 12:7) and all that the Father has given Him, is His, (* John 6:37)
Oh yes we are blessed to know this. Can you imagine for a minute though, all those that have yet to find themselves in this enlightenment? So many wish to cling to their own constructs, it will be to their peril. Prayer is a definite weapon, as we intercede for the lost. The only other powerful force is that of our witness, the silent, the observed and the spoken. This requires that we walk in it, display it and profess it on a level that goes beyond the physical.
Relationship is the level you need to be on with the Lord Jesus Christ. Religion is what He warned of in scripture... Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
I have had enough Religion to know it's empty and meaningless. Relationship with the Living Word is the only and most crucial step. In this world of contrasts, of imposter's and authenticity's the Author of all Truth is found through Relationship, not through the letter of the Law. Religion leads to ruination. Relationship leads to Renewal.
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
37 All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me, and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.
6 who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament — not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.
