If God Commands

It is doable


Negative Thoughts Disempower Us

On a recent Wednesday night Melissa quoted some university level research. The claim is that the typical person experiences 1200 thinkingwords per minute of “self talk.” The average person subconsciously hears 1200 words a minute of self-talk going on in their mind and 1100 of those words are negative in most people. That should give us pause for thought.
Negative thoughts disempower us. They remove the productivity of positive words that we have received in the past. We must break agreement with the enemy and “let not our hearts be troubled.” If Jesus commanded us to “not let our hearts be troubled” then we have the ability to not let our hearts be troubled. He would not command us to do something we could not do.

What Are We Putting Into The Atmosphere?

upset_phoneWhat are we putting into the atmosphere? The prime reason Jesus knew that He must help the disciples reach a point of not being troubled (Jn.14:1) is because when people are troubled, they talk like they are troubled. That kind of talk is contagious. Talk that is troubled is anything but productive.

The Reason Jesus Could Say, “Trust In Me”

Jesus teaching“Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father [cause us to see the Father–that is all we ask]; then we shall be satisfied.  9  Jesus replied, Have I been with all of you for so long a time, and do you not recognize and know Me yet, Philip? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say then, Show us the Father?”  (Jn.14:8-9, Amp) The reason Jesus could say, “You trust in God so you can trust in me” (14:1)–the reason He could say “If you have seen me then you have seen the Father” is because He had never misrepresented the Father in any way. That speaks of integrity, reliability and credibility and that will be displayed in one’s character and character is displayed in actions.

The Reason For The Troubling

They were soon to launch upon a new era in their lives:  ministering and facing opposition, facing the world, its issues and needs without Jesus’ physical presence. They would Launch pad firenow be the ones 1.) dealing directly with religious opposition in all forms, 2.) dealing directly with devils in all forms and 3.) dealing directly with the great weight of human need. They would no longer be standing behind Him observing, listening as He authoritatively dealt with each person and each situation with acts of power. They are now the ones who will be speaking authoritatively and performing acts of power or the troubles will go uncontradicted and needs will continue unmet and unabated. Therefore, it is no wonder that their hearts were troubled, distressed, agitated. Yet, if our Lord commands us to not let our heart be troubled, we have the ability (through Him) to not let our heart be troubled. He would not carelessly command what we could not obey.

What A Way To Begin An Announcement

Wow, what a way to begin an announcement, “Hey, guys, I have something very important to say here but first I must ask you to not be troubled of heart.” Jesus addresses His disciples at a momentous time, on a very important occasion to communicate Walk_beach_sunsetto them the launching of a new era that was immediately upon them and in which they would take the lead. DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me. (Jn.14:1, Amp)  Jesus announces His going and their total dependency upon Holy Spirit to do what He has been doing while with them.
