God made it simple – By Laurence Torr
2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
when God is inspiring and free to work in people’s hearts, then great things happen, people’s needs get met, and they are greatly edified and can begin to walk in the power and strength of the spirit of God,
where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty, freedom to live and move and have our being in God, not hedged in through methods and the structure of traditions of men ways of doing things.
We read the scriptures and meditate on what God is showing us. When we go to the scriptures as God is leading us, then He opens up to us, what He wants us to see and know.
God would have us to simply open our mouths and God will fill it, with what He wants spoken, to the people or person that are in front of us, when we do this and allow God to work
it will inspire faith in the hearer and the humble in heart that receive our words gladly and practises the encouragement given to them then they will see and get God’s results from the wisdom spoken forth which comes from God.
Otherwise, we will be doing the traditional way we have been taught in the past, this certainly limits what God can do by us, because we get tied up in what we have worked
by our own reasoning and studying. God is not limited to how He works and what He can do by us when we simply cease from our own works and efforts and enter into His rest.
Hebrews 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
Its by God’s grace, He gives us the before ordained works to do, and grace is that it is God that does the works we are follow labourers together with God.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
We are saved through faith not by our works, but through the finished works of Jesus Christ.
We confessed Jesus as Lord and believed in our hearts that God raise Him from the dead. (Romans 10:9&10) We did not earn our salvation, Jesus Christ did.
Jesus always done what the Father showed and revealed for Him to do, He was anointed with holy spirit and with power (Acts 10:38) and then began to move as God led Him.
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was led by the spirit of the living God, and that is how we are to live and move, not by any effort from ourselves or our own knowledge and wisdom.
For Jesus to fulfil every prophecy written about him, He had to be led by the spirit of God. Jesus knew the scriptures and what was written about him, and he was at the right place
And the right time and spoke the right words at the right time for those prophecies to be fulfilled. He was obedient unto God even unto the death of the cross, He needed God strength
To go through that, when we bring to mind when he was in the garden of gethsemane, He prayed to God for strength, He said not my will but thine will be done. And God sent angels
To minister unto him. (Matthew 26:36-56)
Jesus said in
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
To do the same works that Jesus did, we will certainly not do in our own wisdom, knowledge or ability but we will be led Just like Jesus was led by the power of the spirit of God.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Now you are born again you have a new nature in you, you are a new creation in Christ, you are now the sons of God with the spirit of the living God dwelling in you
We now live from the new man nature; not our own carnal ways, we have the spiritually ability we can walk and talk like Jesus Christ. We can do the same works and greater
We are Heir of God and Joint Heirs with Jesus Christ
As Christ Jesus is right now, so are we in this world (1John4:17)
We are seated at the right hand of God in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6) we live from the heavenlies and God’s heavenly perspectives
We are to set our thoughts on things above not on the things of this world, which are earthly sensual and devilish (James 3:13-18)
The wisdom from above is first pure then peaceable and gentle and easy to be entreated full of mercy and good fruits with partiality and without hypocrisy.
God heavenly wisdom is simple, to receive in a heart that is humble and ready to do.
We are really to be led by God, doing the simply the things daily, God puts into our hearts and as people come to us individually, we can give them Gods perfect words and wisdom for them personally
as God is inspiring and energizing at that time, because God is working in you and knows what people need and how to active and encourage them perfectly.
Like Jesus Christ did we do, we speak the words the Father put in our hearts and do the things that pleasing in His sight.
We lead those that come to us to God, the labourers will come to you, it starts with one hungry humble person who will receive your words gladly, and go and practise what you have encouraged,
these one’s become fruitful and those that hear them as well, because they are practising sound words from God. We reconcile people back to God so they call walk and live unto God.
We have the ministry and word of reconciliation, the words that God gives us to speak will reconcile people back to God.
The more I have personally practised this way the more fruitful I am becoming because God is now able to add to me, because I simply ceased from my own works how I think it should be done.
The more I practise the simpler and easier it becomes, reminds me of what Jesus spoke forth in Matthew
Matthew 11:28 -29; 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
First thing He said was come unto me, I will give rest, take my yoke upon you and learn of me then you shall find rest unto your souls.
How did Jesus our Lord do the things? He was led by God, He spoke what God gave him to speak, He only done what the Father gave Him to do
John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
So, the First thing is we go to God and learn from Him, we cease from our own works and effort, we enter God rest, then simply move as God inspires us, this way proves very productive, and fruitful and God is able to do the work,
Grace is that God does the works, we seek not our own will but the will of the Father, and we do those things He gives us to do on a daily basis.
we follow and speak forth as God inspires, like the prophets use to for example, when they spoke forth what God work in their hearts God was able to perform and do what was spoken forth, those that connect to us and
receive our words gladly will walk with God and become very fruitful, if they practise this simple way then spiritual which is invisible will become visible in front of their eyes, the healing direction, vision, abundance,
and the power of God being made manifest in this world
so, God is working mightily for you and in you and directing your steps. Just allow Him to by ceasing from your own way of how you think it should be done and be led by the spirit of God.
have a wonderful day
lots of love Laur xx
