Grace is a Power

Grace is A Power
"Grace" It is more than something that is done for you... as in - something given and then (it's finished)... You know... like a “Paid in Full” stamp. It is all this, but so much more...

Grace is also like a giant wave that picks you up...
Like an electrical force that gives you strength...
Like a (never ending, always flowing huge river) that carries you...
All we need do – is jump in!
Grace_power

1 Cor. 15:10, Paul says, "I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I but the grace of God which was with me."

Grace is God's
(((energy))) in our lives to help us.

Another example is Romans 5:21, "As sin reigned in death,
grace also will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." ((Grace)) is like the Ultimate King who exerts and wields his reign in the lives of Christians.
Warrior King
What keeps us in (((Freedom))) is this... Depending on His Grace - not just once... but every minute of every day... It's powerful!

Think of it like liquid dynamite - right there for us to drink of and swim in... WOW!

Thank you Lord that you didn't leave us here powerless - But You empower us - by the greatest force of the Universe - "Your Grace"!

So Lord, today... I dive in! - I let go of everything - that is me...
Trusting in you!
I want get washed away in "Your Grace"
Let it flow over me...
In Jesus name...
Amen

Teeter-Totter

teeter-totter1
By: Ben Andrews

Thought I would share this with you today... Part of my journal from this morning...
Blessings -
Ben

I see Jesus... sitting on a teeter-tooter in the middle of a small park – The park is between two buildings in a city – brick walls on either side – and both opposite ends lead out to the streets on either side... A few trees – but mostly little kid swings and slides - - that type of thing.

Ben! Jesus shouts out over the noise of the children ---

I run over...

“Have a seat” – Jesus says.

I set down where he points – and that’s on the other end of the teeter-totter...

Jesus pushes up with his legs and down I go... – When I reach the bottom – I push back up with my legs and Jesus goes back down- We do this for a little while – then Jesus stops... He steps off and so do I.

Once off – we walk together - over to a bench near the teeter-totter.

Ben? – Jesus says...

Yes Lord?

Just like this teeter-totter – we need to work together – Think of it this way- I’m in the spirit realm – on my side of the teeter-totter and you’re in the flesh realm on your side of the teeter-totter. – When I move I affect your movements – and when you move you affect my movements – If you obey and do my will – I can move in the spirit realm and move you – if you don’t move – you stay stuck at the bottom of the teeter-totter – but if you will move –and by move I mean – moving in my will for your life – then I can in turn make my move... This is a collaboration – a dance – a walk that we do together. If you keep doing things your way – it’s like keeping you legs curled up in a ball and I can’t make the next move... Do you see that?

Yes Lord – I see now... Never thought of it like that...

Ben, I’ve given you authority in the flesh realm – but for me to move in the spirit – you must do your part... I don’t mean do what you want to do and then I’ll hop on your bandwagon either. I mean when you obey the commands that I have already given you in my word and the words that I speak to you... then I can make my move. This is how the whole thing works – If I start moving without your cooperation and obedience then I’m breaking my laws – breaking my word – and I will not do that! So if you want to go further – you’ll have to move in sync with me...

OK Jesus – let's do this...

Jesus gets up and walks back to the teeter-totter – He gets on... I get on. - Up and down we go... He just laughs and laughs the most beautiful laugh.

Yes, Ben – like this... As you go though your day – just remember this picture and keep moving in step – in motion with me... Let’s do this...

OK Lord – I love you so much...

I love you too... Now let’s see how fast we can make this thing go... Jesus laughs and laughs – as he speeds up –

Keep up Ben! – Keep up!
Now I’m laughing too... Man I love this guy!

I love you too Ben! – Now keep up! He shouts... Keep up!....

Wrapped In His Rainbow

Jesus Rainbow

Written by: Ben Andrews

...
I could have never written something like this one my own - or even imagined something so sweet – so beautiful. I know it was from the Lord - If you are hurting today - I know Jesus is saying this to you as well... Hope this blesses you --- I just wrote what He showed me - He is amazing, amazing, amazing...
...
I see Jesus... rapping a beautiful rainbow around Himself – He is rapping it around his waste – over one shoulder while the other end goes around his back and then lies on the ground at His feet. Somehow the rainbow still looks like a rainbow – see-through – ethereal – but it acts like a long scarf. What a strange thing to see...
...
Jesus what is this?
...
A rainbow Ben – Isn’t that what you see?
...
Yes, but why? – Why did you rap a rainbow around yourself?
...
Come here Ben --- Jesus tells me...
...
So - I walk over next to him...
...
Jesus places his hand on my shoulders – moves me to... right in front of him – He then reaches down and picks up the rainbow off of his chest – pulls it forward and wraps it around me. We are now both wrapped in the rainbow. – Jesus and me – with this rainbow around us. Jesus then grabs the end of the rainbow and with just the flick of his wrist – twirls the rainbow around us three more times. We are now wrapped together – tied together with and in this rainbow... I can feel the rainbow around us – but it doesn’t feel constraining. I move my hand... and it goes right through it...
...
Oh, you can go - you can leave - any time you want Ben - You are not tied here...
...
I don’t want to go Jesus! – I like it here!... What is that feeling I have? – It feels like love but more? – Something more is here – something I don’t understand?...
...
You are wrapped in my promise... I want you to see this visually today. – You in me and I in you - all wrapped in a promise... You can walk away – but know this... As long as you stay near me – you will feel my promise tangibly. The rainbow was my promise to Noah – but it wasn’t for him alone. It was for all who will put their trust and hope in me. – I will carry you away from disaster. I will cover you and protect you from the downpour – the deluge. I will keep those in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on me. I have wrapped you in my promise. I am hugging you all day long. – Know that I am near today. – Know that I am so near that I have wrapped you in my love and sealed it with a promise – the promise of my Holy Spirit – who will comfort and keep you wrapped in me and bathed in my love. I want you to see this all day long. I am making all things new! – When thoughts come that try to steal your peace – Remember... what I have shown you... You are wrapped in my peace - wrapped in my Love – wrapped in my promise! I will never leave you nor forsake you! I am with you always – and forever...
...
Ok Jesus ... WOW – You speak to the core of me. You know my heart. You know my pain – you know my weaknesses – and you comfort me... I love you Lord...
...
I love you too Ben – now stay close today - closer than ever before. Let my love – my peace, which I have promised you... comfort and renew you... Know that I love you! – Know that I have wrapped you in my promise...
