A Bank Account That Never Runs Low

According to Ephesians 1:3, we who have received Christ Jesus as our Savior have already been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.  Everything we will ever need for any situation, no matter how difficult or devasting, we already have.  When we hear someone say, “I just don’t have any peace or joy in my life,” and you know this person is a believer in Christ, just remind them that they actually do have peace and joy but they have allowed the cares of the world to entangle them to such a degree that they have simply lost sight of what they have in Christ.  The moment I received the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior, I received His strength, His wisdom, His peace, His joy, His mind, and His heart.  In a nutshell, I have received His Spirit!  All of the fruit of His Spirit is in me, but I will not always allow it to manifest itself because my heart is not always fully  yielded to Him.  The moment I choose to respond to my circumstances by allowing the Holy Spirit to control my mind, my will, and my emotions, I will experience the peace and joy that comes from belonging to God.  But when I choose to react to circumstances, allowing my flesh to have its way, that’s when the fruit of the Spirit is suppressed, and I don’t feel it.  It’s always there, but I don’t always feel it because I don’t always yield my heart fully to the Lord and invite Him to take control of my heart.

About concerningtheking

Concerning the King is about proclaiming His truth as it applies to my life and my work. By sharing my experiences (peaks and valleys), I hope to encourage others to draw near to God. I live in Fremont, Nebraska, where I serve as facilitator for Fresh Hope, a faith-based support group for people struggling with mood disorders. Seven years after being diagnosed with the Bipolar Disorder, I realized that getting well and staying well was going to require more than just taking the right pills and seeing the right therapist. I was going to need a closer walk with Christ, which involved daily time in His word, prayer, and a willingness to trust Him no matter how challenging my circumstances. I have discovered that the more I trust Him, the more He gives me to trust Him for. As my spiritual muscles grow stronger, He adds more weight. Belonging to God and living my life for His glory has made a huge difference in my mental wellness. Serving on the board of directors for Care Corps Family Services and being part of their mental health task force has allowed me to bring to the table my experiences with homelessness as well as mental illness. My writing is heavily influenced by the work of redemption God has done in my life. I am eager to help people experience the same deliverance that has empowered me so that I could overcome my fear of failure. Now I'm an entrepreneur. Caring Touch Services of Fremont provides cleaning, pet sitting, and help with packing. With God all things are possible!
