BLOG 31 SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS

BLOG   31         SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS

The only way spiritual growth comes is by sitting at our Lord’s feet.  Doing this reveals a desire to receive His word, and a willingness to listen to Him.  Also. this  shows that we have an  interest in what He has to say.  Learning from the Master is what we all need.  I like sitting quietly at Jesus’ feet listening for His voice.
One humbles himself, by sitting at Yahshua’s feet, (Hebrew name) and looking up into His face.  He is a wonderful teacher; because He has lived it all out as a man. (as we are)   As one lowers himself; it shows he is ready to learn from the Master.  While sitting at the Master’s feet,we are made aware of who He is, and just what He has suffered for us.
Faith comes by hearing Jesus’ speak His word to us.  The just shall live by the words he hears Jesus speak.  We live by the faith of the Son of God.  Galatians 2:20  Hearing is not just physical.  He speaks His word to our hearts.  Holy Spirit reveals the word to the child of God and gives him the faith to believe it-supernaturally.  We are listening to the living Word when we sit at Jesus’ feet.  Jesus’ name is “The Word of God.”
When you come to Him; it is all about you and Him.  It is a personal relationship.  Growth continues as one sits at His feet. The only way to be justified is for Jesus to come live in you.  You ask to be forgiven for your sins, and receive the work He finished at the cross.  He gives the gift of salvation just for the asking.  That is what His grace is all about.  Grace is what He does, and it has nothing to do with what we do.  It is a free gift!  Ephesians 2 : 8 & 9
After one receives the word, satan comes to steal it.  Mark4:15   The devil comes immediately to deceive, and to  try to cause unbelief.   He that has ears to hear, let him hear and understand. Mark 4:9
A person has to live by faith, operate in faith and then apply faith.  The just shall experience abundant life by living by His faith.  It is not your doing!  The word of the Lord is sure; it can not be denied or defeated.  It never returns void. Isaiah 55:11
Study the word day and night, sitting at the feet of Jesus.  Do only what He wants you to do.  If we are in line with Him, everything else will be alright.
Do you have the desire to hear His word?  Do you sit at His feet?  Do you hear Him?  Do you allow Him to teach and instruct you?  The Bible says in the story of Mary and Martha; that Mary did the better thing.( sitting at Jesus’ feet)  While Martha was always distracted,and busy, with other things!  Luke 10:39,40,41,42
If you haven’t been listening to what He wants to tell you-He is waiting for you right now.  He is eager to talk to you.  To tell you great and mighty things that you do not know.
God loves us all so much.  He desires for all to live a productive and an over-coming life. 1John 5:4   A life of victory in Him.  That is why Jesus died on the cross to restore all creation back to the Father.
Like the song says: “Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look into His wonderful face, and the things of the earth will grow strangely dim; in the light of His glory and grace.”
It was joy for Him to endure the cross!  Do you really understand this?  Because He was beaten so much and all the sin, sickness, disease, and poverty of the whole world was put on His body; He was not recognized as a human being.  He endured all this for you and for me.  Once and for all!
Men and women can sit in front of the TV and watch a ball game for hours at the time.  Or they can sit and watch a movie for 2 & 3 hours!  Why can’t they sit at Jesus’ feet for just one hour?  Do you know?
I believe they just don’t have eyes for the Lord Jesus, because they are tied up with the things of the world!  He is coming back soon.  We can see this by all the unusual weather,  the tremendous sin,and hearts waxing cold.( to name a few)
Time is speeding up; there is not much left.  We must be ready and we must be prepared.  Having our lamps filled with oil, and trimmed.

This is Faith Cabin saying bye for now.  Love, Blessings, and Smiles.
