Creating Your World pt 1
Partners with God
Hebrews 11:3 AMPC “By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.”
God Himself accomplished His will by FAITH…
“HE IS FAITH”
He used WORDS, we know this from Genesis….
It actually goes like this:-
Genesis 1:1 KJV “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Genesis 1:26-31 KJV “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Then He gave us HIS WORD!
Hebrews 11:1-3 NKJV “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.” By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
Framed: kat-ar-tid’-zo; to complete thoroughly….
– to repair (literally or figuratively)
– to adjust, fit or mend.
– to join perfectly – to prepare & then restore.
- For us to Partner with God in Creating our World, we have to be convinced (conviction) that God is Creative and all Powerful.
NB: Look at the life of Jesus, He only said and did what He saw the Father say & do!
John 5:19 ESV “So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.”
- Through Salvation you are B.A. in His IMAGE, your LIFE has been “Framed” and you are now been Transformed into all you were Created to be, this happens by you applying His Word, with the Holy Spirit as you begin to Create your world.
Mark 11:22-25 NKJV “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.”
- God is passionate about us and He loves when we are able to enjoy Him and walk in His Purpose for our lives.
- That’s what produces satisfaction and makes a difference in this (your) World.
OUR NEW VISION: Every believer a leader, every leader a disciple-maker!
You are a world changer & a history maker!
Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.””
John 3:27-30 NKJV “John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’ He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease.”
We must each take responsibility to walk in a 1st hand revelation of Jesus, that means “Coming before Jesus” constantly!
Revelation No. 1: Rest (it is Finished)
Revelation No. 2: Grace & Faith (Work Together not alone)
Revelation No. 3: Gods Got You
Revelation No. 4: God Won’t Answer that!
Revelation No. 5: God’s Love is Greater
Hebrews 4:1-3 NKJV “Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: “So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest,’ ” although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.”
There is a REST for the people of GOD! We cannot accomplish GOD SIZE RESULTS with human effort! When we TRY WORK, God rests when we REST, GOD CAN WORK!
Hebrews 4:9-13 NKJV “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”
We must learn firsthand that it’s one thing to say something is true, but it’s another to believe so strongly in God’s faithfulness and the integrity of His Word, that one lives in a place of rest!
THATS how we confidently rely and trust in Him. Rest leads you to walk in PEACE PEACE allows JOY to flow And JOY produces Thankfulness
THANKSGIVING HELPS US NOT TO focus on what you don’t have, what hasn’t happened, FOCUS ON JESUS!
Focusing on what we don’t have strengthens the belief of LACK.
Thanksgiving will stir up your faith and get us to a place of rest.
THEN we can meditate on the Word and spending even more time in God’s presence.
II Corinthians 3:6-18 NKJV “who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious. Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
