2019 - The Lord's Prayer and ARMOUR OF GOD. Simple daily disciplines. BEing NOT doing.

   Trying to explain in simplicity so that what I have, by the Grace of God,learned in the last few months, is not easy.

       For too long we have been taught 'how to pray' concepts, rules, training etc.

            This format is therefore for ALL who know that AT THE CROSS it has all be done.  We need to have a simple format to live a daily life and BE as Jesus in a fallen world. 

A Progression. REST, SIT, STAND, WALK  and then LIVE!

Lord, Good Morning. I'm alive! I will rest in and with You. (maybe only a couple of seconds - may be longer).

Rest in the Lord, wait patiently for HIM.    Psalm 37

 

Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me and you will find REST for your souls. Matt.11:29..

    NOW.........

                             S I T ! 

THE LORD's PRAYER.

Never meant to be a ritual.  It is a format and can be life affirming and changing in every way.   I will expand on this later on this page.   While simply sitting connect with the Lord. The Lord's Prayer here may be short or as long as time frame allows   BUT the important aspect is to CONNECT.   

Father in Heaven..... Abba Father my Father.   here am I your blood-bought son or daughter.   Hallowed be Your Name.     (In your Name is all I need.   In You my day will be complete.) HOLY RIGHTEOUS, ABOVE ALL THINGS ARE YOU!. The Bible's has an expansive list of God's Names.  In essence and substance His Name is Great. Secret, Glorious, Everlasting, Exalted and not fully comprehended in entirety by anyone).

In this spiritual place of SITTING.   Know that He is God.  Acknowledge in your heart and spirit.  He is God.

                      

      BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.      I WILL BE EXALTED AMONG THE NATIONS. i WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH!

NOW:   EPHESIANS 6:13 . Put on the armour of God (spiritually)  put it on.  Simply slip it on like you would your  underwear. ( A daily necessity). 

(This was granted to you by Christ's sacrificial death at Calvary....this Armour is yours/ours......Girded with TRUTH, Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, Shod with shoes of PEACE, Shield of FAITH, Helmet of SALVATION and the Sword of the Spirit WORD of GOD.

(Armour of God.  Eph. 6:14-17.          Now having done all....v13....NOW......

 

             S T A N  D 

With courage to face uncertainties but knowing Christ is within by His Spirit you WALK in the SPIRIT forward into the day with all its challenges and strife.

WALKING ONWARD

LIVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE - It is a Promise of God.

AS AN AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST IN WORLD.......(If failures and disappointments come, as they probably will...) deal with them,  at the Cross.

                Repent, accept FORGIVENESS and WALK ON. 

1st.      REST.....'Good Morning, Lord!

 2nd.     SIT.....My Father in Heaven, Holy is Your Name.(Lord's Prayer)....

 

3.    STAND.   Dress.

 Slip into the ARMOUR OF GOD (SPIRITUALLY).....Then spiritually adjust your shield and pick up the Sword of the Spirit. 

....Then.    (whatever you may need to do ie breakfast, other 'necessary' stuff you are spiritually clothed.

         Only then you spiritually can......

 

 

4. WALK, WALK, WALK onwards.

Be Light in the darkness and live ABUNDANT LIFE in the midst of all the daily challenges. 

 

Father of All. Pour Grace from your RIVER of Life on all who vist this page.In Jesus' Name. a-men.
