Our Foundation is Peace

John 1:17 “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ”

Our foundation for growing spiritually rests on knowing who God is and over time learning His ways. The Kingdom train moves along a track. One rail is Love and the other is Righteousness. One rail is Grace and the other is Truth and they become our reality in Jesus. Gods righteousness is the truest expression of that Love. This love never stops judging things that are out of order with His Kingdom.

Hebrews 12:6-7 “For the Lord corrects and disciplines everyone whom He loves, and He punishes, even scourges, every son whom He accepts and welcomes to His heart and cherishes. You must submit to and endure [correction] for discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there whom his father does not [thus] train and correct and discipline?”

By grace we are moved into divine alignment as He makes divine determinations (judgements) of our condition and position. In divine terms, God’s judgments are sent in order to establish His righteousness. The Lord’s judgments are always moving to align things in our hearts and lives with His higher purpose.

John 8:26 “I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him”

The loss of peace is the first judgement that should get our attention and let us know we have missed the Lord in some way. He uses judgments that correct, judgments that reveal and judgements that warn. The peace of God judges (determines) if you are on the Kingdom field of play or if you have stepped out of bounds. His judgements are a function of His government (Lordship) in our life. He not only sees things in our heart that impact our journey in time but more importantly He knows how they will unfold in eternity so anything that is not compatible with eternity will be brought to the surface by the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 4:15 “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ”

Don’t remain silent. Give Love a voice and speak the truth of who you are in Him. Boldly declare it before powers and principalities. Let God move you out of your comfort zone into the field of need where His life and light can be seen and heard in the world. Break every chain and Overcome every stronghold and then shout it from the rooftops and proclaim liberty for everyone that is captive. Whom the Son sets free is free INDEED.
