1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (NIV) May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
In prayer, that verse suddenly appeared and spoke strongly in my heart and become God’s promises that injects new hope, strength, and high spirit. Apparently, God does indeed desire to care for our spirits, souls, and bodies perfectly in peaceful harmony. In other words, He has set us to be healthy in soul, body and have spiritual man that is on fire in Him.
So we should not assume it is normal for our souls to experience inner conflict, stress, or worry. We must not consider it normal if our bodies are ailing! Moreover, we should not take it for granted that our spirits are not burning for God, because it only indicates that we are not in tune with heaven’s frequency and God’s agenda!
I find that in the days ahead there is a desperate need for peace and tranquility that surpasses all understanding. Not because our surroundings are fine, but there is a divine presence of God that emerges from within that nourishes our body, soul and spirit in peace. That divinity is what I call the KNOWLEDGE OF THE FATHER IN WHOLE.
For such a long time, our lives have been unconsciously shaped by our family, environment, and numerous unfortunate events. We may be individuals who are constantly pressured, blamed, or become the target of vented anger, both verbally and physically. For a long period of time, we live in inner conflict, resulting in our behavior conforming to the existing mold.
Even worse, we know the Father just like “that mold”. We assume that our Heavenly Father is temperamental, always blaming, fault-finding or difficult to forgive. This makes it difficult for us to surround ourselves with peace! For example, regarding the worries about the daily needs of life that are often a problem for many people, the Spirit will show us the existence of the Father who has indeed provided it all for us, His children without us needing to ‘work hard, toil or grind’(Matthew 6:25-34).
The Spirit will reveal the truth about the Father’s presence that indeed has forgiven us through the sacrifice of Christ and make us worthy to reconnect with His presence that is full with peace. He never rejects nor does He keep on blaming us!
Colossians 1:20-23 (NIV) and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
I truly feel and firmly believe that the KNOWING OF THE FATHER is very important in these last days. In the midst of a turbulent world, realize that we have a Father who never for a second leaves let alone forsaken us. He will surely KEEP OUR BODIES, SOULS, AND SPIRITS PERFECTLY IN PEACE. He is a faithful Father who will surely carry out His will perfectly!
We will once again introduce the presence of our Father in heaven into the lives of many people! There will be many people who give themselves to be ‘guided’ by the reality of the Father through our lives that bring divine peace in our daily lives! Amen.
