You can reach so high
Make the boundless sky
Your total claim, your destiny
But when all you grasp is gone
And you’re no longer holding on
To the castles in the air
You will wake up to see
It was never about the win
Because the beginning and the end
Is really all the same
At the Cross
But after the fight of your life
To demand all your rights
What was it worth if your
Life is totally lost?
Jesus died to cover every weakness, every sin.
Jesus died to let mercy triumph…
It’s only in surrender
That true JUSTICE wins.
I wrote this after hearing about Kavanaugh not being accepted to teach at Harvard. What incredible lessons we are learning about success this hour. Honestly, our calling in life is greater than a position. I find that people who are vying for the top like all the Harvard students who are persecuting Kavanaugh are going to eventually see an error to their ways. The fight to win rights is always a loss. We are just human and our greatest rights were given by Jesus. Without Him, what kinds of rights would be really have? Our civil society and fight for justice looks very odd these days. It doesn’t look like justice at all. Not when sinners are tearing apart sinners and having no mercy. I’m not sure what people are thinking they can prove. Who among is with a pure slate? If we go around accusing, devouring, and setting people up for failure, then we will reap the devastation of what happens when everyone is considered a loser by society. Maybe that is the lesson we should all learn, though. Without Jesus, we are all losers of truth, grace, mercy, and real life. I’d rather lose my life at the Cross for Christ than have the world affirm me. Praying for Kavanaugh. #nobodyhastherighttotearapartsomeonslife
I refuse to limit God to man’s cultural religion. Leave it to man, and God will no longer be a Healer, just only a Comforter. But, the thing is…He is both. He can still heal today. I refuse to believe that cancer is greater than God. Cancer is a disease. Jesus took the stripes for all diseases, and He knew someday there would be something called cancer. We can’t forget God’s Word. He said to confess our sins and to be healed. He said He would send forth His Word and heal us. He is still our Healer.
Sometimes God calls His children Home. He knows when we need Healing at Home more than we need Healing on earth. But, He should be the One to decide that, not man.
I believe our first recourse must always be surrender and faith when we get sick. Surrender to ask forgiveness and mercy for our sins if we sinned and/or faith to believe God wants to be glorified as Healer through our lives. He IS Healer. We must always make that our default belief. By Jesus’ stripes we are healed.
Friday I was in tears on my way home. My head was throbbing. I put my hand on the base of my neck, and I simply prayed and asked God to heal me. I heard His Spirit tell me that He loved me. I let that wash over me. Although the top right of my head still hurt, the base of my neck had no pain. It was all gone. All gone. I found myself marveling at that, but I should know it’s part of my inheritance as His child. Healing is what the Father does.
I know when people die whom we care for it challenges us to the core. Why does disease seem to have the upper hand? Where is healing? I am here to say that I still believe God heals. He is Healer. He always will be. Never cease praying for the health of those we love. Let God choose where He wants to heal them, in heaven or on earth. But, let’s partner WITH the Holy Spirit and AGREE for others’ complete healing in Jesus Christ. God loves us. ❤
