Worthiness, Authority, Testimony, and Blessing

When you've been delivered from any bondage, stronghold, or affliction it makes you worthy - more than anything - to receive God's Spirit of Testimony about such things.  The enemy would have you embrace just the opposite, but don't do it, my friends.

Young people need to hear of one saved by grace from the ravages of sinning and backsliding in recurring sin (everybody needs to hear it).  Once you've been delivered by God's grace and power, He also infuses in you the testimony of believing in HIS ability on your behalf to keep you from falling.  God does the work.

But, loved ones, know this - when we are overcome by sin due to our own desires in lust and undelivered bondages - God understands and will forgive us if we sincerely repent.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."  1 John 1:9
All people need to know that, too.  God is the God of unlimited opportunity, forgiveness, and chances.  We all fall upon occasion, and God knows that.  But He is also the God Who is able to keep us from falling if we give our whole will to Him.  HE can do it on our behalf, but it's up to us to yield to His commissioning of us as holy (set apart) vessels.  All He asks of us is that we be willing... willing to trust and obey His directives; willing to accept and receive His forgiveness when we sin; and willing to forgive ourselves.  Daddy wants us to know that - by His Power - we can live victorious lives in Jesus, going from glory to glory as His word says and receiving NO condemnation into our souls.
"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit." (Romans 8:1)

When Holy Spirit says NO condemnation, He's not stuttering or misspeaking; God says what He means and means what He says.  In Christ Jesus, my friends - WE ARE WORTHY to receive all that He has for us in commissioning in His vineyards as messengers and stewards of His goodness and mighty power to save.  Period.  God wants our lives literally to be about growing closer and closer to Him.

In Christ's power and wisdom, you can give wise counsel to anyone, young or old.  God's commissioning over your life takes precedence over everything!  He will prepare you, in His timing, for all He's assigned to you; and He will make ready all the hands and hearts He's marked to receive your testimony, by His power.  I declare it as truth, of which I am a living witness, in Jesus' Name.  Amen!

Be encouraged, dear friends, that you are worthy to do whatever God has called you to because of His great love for you.  Let His timing be your friend above all friends in the universe, and God will carry you through to your destiny.  Your purpose in Him IS NOT dishonorable - it's honorable, for all things in Him have honor and worth.  Seek Him out in prayer and thanksgiving for the direction He has for your life, and do not hinder His wondrous desires for you by regarding unworthiness.  Give place to God's Spirit above your feelings, beloved, and He will renew your spirit and change your feelings!  HALLELUJAH!

His deliverance from past sins gives you the authority to stand firm in His Name.  Don't let the enemy lie to you concerning that.  God's forgiveness in restoration and recovery of your life makes you worthy to declare His power unto others.  You are worthy, in Jesus' Name.

Be blessed,
Daddy's Girl
