Stepping Away From Worry

Genesis Chapter 2:1-3 (NAS)

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

When we break down all the Hebrew word that we translated these verses from this states that all the creation was completed AND all authority set in place. All God’s work was put in order and set with the functionality and purpose to be done. It had all been thought through, see to completion and God blessed it by not knowing it was done, finished and taking His rest. Part of this definition is separating or stepping away. Which made me think……?

If God put all power in place and we choose if we live by blessing or curse then all that happens is not necessarily God’s will it is what we “allow” to take place.

• We know a curse with out a cause does not come.
• We know He asks us to choose this day who we will follow.
• We know He asks us to choose life so that we will have rest for our souls.
• We know that we have the authority to choose a blessing or a curse.

This is because He ordained it by the seventh day and said it was so….and so it is.
Amen, Hallelujah, Shalom


As I was working on this devotion this morning, I remembered the verses to this song that I adore:

If we’ve ever needed you God it’s now, God it’s now. We are desperate for your love reaching down, reaching down. Revive us now. We are on our knees reaching out, reaching up. Hear us now, revive us now. Heal us now.
Then I had a new song in my heart and these were the lyrics with the same tune:

We are desperate for your word – speaking out.
So Today let us hear, Today let us speak…in understanding and knowledge of who He is, what they created with design for His purposes.
Let it be done to us as He wills.

In Jesus name and with His heart I ask in unity with who ever chooses to align with Elohiym. And ask that His kingdom come here on earth this moment.

We know the Angels of God are victorious because His arm is not too short. It is long and strong. His hand of provision is not weak it grasps what is needed whether for protection or provision and it handles all things. This is why we are not fit for the kingdom of God if we put our hand on the plow (or handle) and then remove it or turn back. We are not yet in His image for His purposes. Not because of His choice…it is because He asked us to choose life and live. We choose to remove our hands and choose what is less, comfortable, and produces little.

May it never be said of us…We are the ones that when we have done all to stand and the waves of life are bombarding us to the point we think we cannot possibly take another hit, He grabs us the angels uphold us in His word and we REMAIN!

Now THAT is ALL God, and what a powerful God He is to sustain all things right from the beginning….at the end of the sixth day He had Sweet, Sweet Sweet rest. I pray that you do too…in Him.
