Is your veil removed?

II Corinthians 3:14

14 But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ.

Some many today are stuck in the “religion” mode instead of living free in the Spirit. “The Bible is too boring,” I often hear people say, or “I try to read the Bible but I don’t get anything out of it.” So many people struggle to understand anything they read from the Bible because they’re reading it through veiled eyes. It’s the Holy Spirit who reveals Truth and brings wisdom and understanding. Reading the Bible without asking the Lord to reveal new principles IS tedious and boring.

But when we seek the Lord and invite Him to remove the veil from our stained eyes, He brings Freedom, Truth, and Life more abundantly. The apostle Paul says once the veil has been removed, we become mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord.

Next time you open the word, rather than just flipping through the pages and randomly selecting a passage that your finger falls on, try this:
Take a minute to ask God what He wants to reveal to you. You’ll be amazed at how much more scripture you’ll retain and apply to your life. Once the veil is removed, it’s pretty fun to see God go to work and infuse people with his life giving word.

Father we desire to know you and become more and more like you. Teach us your ways oh Lord, so we can better reflect your glory!!

Always Enough

I Corinthians 13:3
If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
The Lord’s been pounding me hard with the importance of simply loving others. Last night at the River I sensed this overwhelming desire to reach out in love to each person that walked through the doors. The entire night there was a deep sense of community as the Presence of the Lord touched hearts. As a group we corporately prayed against the spirit of death and suicide and then broke off into groups and commanded waves of healing to rush over each person who was struggling to take each thought captive to the Lord. It was incredible operating in the gift of prayer and prophecy over others. Love and jubuliant joy completely saturated the entire night. Praise God for the breakthough in the River!!
I’m reading a book called Always Enough by Heidi and Rolland Baker – a missionary couple serving in Mozambique Africa. After serving in Mozambique myself for over a month, my heart leaps as I read of what the Lord is doing among the poorest children on earth. This family truly embodies and models what it means to love and care for those that nobody wants. Many of these children found by Heidi and her husband spend their entire childhood running the streets, stealing food, and prostituting themselves just to stay alive. Some children come from backgrounds where witchcraft is practiced seriously, and have been thrown out of their homes for coming to Jesus. But it’s amazing to read the testimonies of how the Lord can take a broken little soul, infuse it with power and healing, and bring complete restoration to these poor children. And as he visits them, they change; they become radically serious about serving Him with their lives and about cleansing impurities out of their hearts.
As I read this book there is one resounding Truth that echoes throughout the book; When we Love and Trust in God there is Always Enough!!

I ve been sorting through some stuff relating to my earthly/ heavenly father. For me i know that my heavenly father loves me more than i can ever imagine. It is just really hard to wrap my head around. alot of times i feel that alot of people including myself give like half of our issues to got and then try to use our little brains to figure it out. we need to give it all to GOD…it needs to be a heart issue and not a mind issue.

so i starting think about who i am in christ. and God started to pour out his love in my quiet time. Then i found this band THE GLORIOUS UNSEEN! they have some freaking sweet songs. The song close to your heart really just spoke to me about GODS LOVE FOR ME! How he sees me as his son. This might not make any sense to you…i hope it does.
