MOVE YOUR MAGNIFYING GLASS

God's love 4 us NEVER EVER changes.

I believe it is so important 2 change what I "think" I see in my circumstances every day.Almost all of us have some reason why we feel our lives are not measuring up and how bad things seem 2 be.
When we have difficulties we start looking back and wondering about the "what if's " What if i had taken that opportunity or done something differently?What if i hadn't fought with my loved 1.What if i won that competition or money?The fact is that we can't know what would have happened if we had done things differently or if they had turned out otherwise.We usually make our choices based on our circumstances at the time.
But these things in our lives don't have 2 rule our outcome.God says He knows the plans and thoughts He has 4 us.Thoughts 4 good and not 4 evil.Lately,I have heard the Lord say over and over:"Move your magnifying glass!" Gradually the Lord got through 2 me that my focus is off.We all have magnifying glass is not the problem.
The problem is where it is focused! Very often we focus on the negative stuff in our life.But i believe God wants 2 challenge us 2 move the magnifying glass.Psalms is full of times where David says:"Come magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name!" The emphasis is on "magnifying" the Lord and not the things that are happening.
What we place our focus on will automatically I would rather the Lord become bigger and the problems and other stuff in life diminish!! After all He is greater in us than he who is in the wold.In Matt.11:28-30 Jesus says:"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come 2 me.Get away with me and you'll recover your life.I'LL show you how 2 take a real rest.Walk with me
Watch how I do it.Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.I won't lay anything or ill-fitting on you.Keep company with me and you'll learn 2 live freely and lightly" (MSG Bible )The Ben Campbell Johnson paraphrase says it this way:
Take the burden of responsibility I give you and thereby discover your life and your destiny.I am gentle and humble;I am willing 2 relate 2 you and 2 permit you 2 learn at your own rate;then,in fellowship with me,you will discover the meaning of your life.
In John 16:33,Jesus tell us 2 have courage and be confident in the midst of our trials and frustrations.He declares His victory over the things in this wold.The Amplified says,"I have deprived it (the wold) of power 2 harm you and have conquered it 4 you." Imagine ugat your current frustration is in human form.
Now picture this enemy in the desert.Your ememy is not getting a drop of water or a crumb of food.Just so,Jesus has deprived the wold of all power 2 harm you and has conquered it 4 you.Sometimes we give our problems a little more power than they deserve.I have noticed in my own life that minute I begin focusing on what I'm frustrated or worried about,I begin feeding it and building it up.The 1 thing that always happens is I lose my focus and then I become angry or disappointed and ultimately become weak.
God's love 4 us NEVER EVER changes.His patience whith us never changes.That's the place where we should keep our magnifying glass - on His love and passion 4 us.I recently found the following saying that really Touched my heart.It's as if God is saying this 2 me (and you)
IF I LOVE YOU AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR JOURNEY (when you get born again) AND PROMISE 2 LOVE YOU WHEN WE REACH OUR DESTINATION (eternal life with Him ),THEN THERE IS NO REASON 2 DOUBT MY LOVE ALONG THE WAY,EVEN IF THE ROAD GETS BUMPY.
I'd like 2 encourage you 2 move your magnifying glass.Take time every day and begin 2 focus on God and His work in your life.His mercies are new EVERY morning.His hopes are FADELESS under ALL circumstances.He is an EVER-PRESENT help in time of trouble.He heaps us with BENEFITS EVERY day.
TAKE IT 2 HEART 2DAY! No matter who you are...No matter where you are...You matter 2 God! Not because of what you do...Nor what you've ever done...God loves you because -God is Love!This is love:not what we loved God,but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice 4 our sins-John 4:10.*~*~Jesus has done all the work 4 You! The work is finished.Jesus did His part.All you need 2 do is ACT on it and receive it.
A brand new creature~2 Corinthians 5:17~Therfore,if anyone is in Christ,he is a new a creation,old things have passed away,behold all things have become new.~Righteous...in right standing with God.2 Cor.5:21~For He made Him who knew no sin 2 be 4 us,that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.***Free from Condemnation~ Romans 8:1.
There is therefore now no condemnation 2 those who are in CHRIST JESUS.God bless .
