He's Really Not Working Today (April 2nd, 2019)

"For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His." (Hebrews 4:10)



Our opening verse reveals something striking that many in the Church today need to understand. God isn't in heaven worrying about how to fix things in the world or about how to help His children that are in one situation or another. Rather, He's in heaven, resting. He's done everything He ever needed to do for you to have and enjoy life to the full, and now He's taking a chill.


You might ask, "But if I have a situation and I pray to God, who miraculously intervenes, doesn't that mean He did something?" No, He didn't do anything. What happened is that you activated your faith to receive what He's already done. You might even ask about what the Apostle Paul said in Ephesians chapter 3:


(Ephesians 3:20)

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us"

Notice the latter part of the verse: He does whatever you require for Him to do for you, by His power that's at work in you, not by the power He wields in, or from heaven. That's why when those types of miracles happen, He gives you credit. He told us to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons (Matthew 10:8). He didn't tell us to pray to do those things!


There are certain things that are permissible at the lower levels of spiritual understanding. For example, at a crusade with could say, "God is going to heal you today," and many diverse miracles would take place. But that's a lesser truth.


In Genesis 1:16, we read about greater light and the lesser light-- light stands for truth. Lesser and generic truths are for the babies in Christ; so, you tell them things like, "God is going to heal you."


But the more you delve into the Word of God, the more you realize that God isn't really doing anything for anyone today in the way that many understand it. He's already completed and fulfilled everything in Jesus Christ! He's not making an effort to heal you or to give you anything.


(2 Peter 1:3)

"...as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness..."

He's already done it! What you need to do now is to act on the Word and walk in your inheritance. Be all He's made you, and enjoy all that He's made available to you in Christ.


Confession:

Blessed be God! I live the transcendent life of glory. I'm triumphant in Christ always, and in every place, and in all things. I'm more than a conquerer! His divine power has given me everything I need for life and godliness. I have, and I'm enjoying, life to the full. Hallelujah!
