God what is going on in this world? Satan was in heaven but he wanted a position that he could never have. He wasnít satisfied with the gift he had to bring glory to you. God I see this happening in the church all over the world. No one wants to be satisfied to do the work you have called them to. No one wants to forego titles and positions given to men to stay in position with you. Man is selling out his soul for their own glorification.
There is no prayer, heartfelt prayer, sacrificial prayer, or sanctified prayer going on. Jesus said in Matthew 6:6 but thou when thou prayest enter into thy closet and when thou has shut thy door pray to the father which is in secret: and thy Father which sees in secret shall reward thee openly. If we are going to see God at all He must first see us and we must see Jesus as the way, the truth, and the life if we are to come to the Father. We have messed up God; have mercy upon us. We have gone away from your ordinances and made our own way; have mercy upon us.
Where does our faith lie? In whom do we really put our trust? Paul said in Romans 5:2 by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. We have access to God through faith; we believe that he is but we donít physically see God. Our faith lie in the fact that God himself have given us an open door to come before him and glorify him. If we believe in the God that made the world and all things therein we believe that He is Lord of heaven and earth and can move mountains. Of him and through him and in him are all things to whom be glory forever. We are to know through faith that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
We must know in our hearts and souls that God does not fail. There is no weakness in God. There is no failure in God. We must declare Godís faithfulness and his salvation. If we keep him concealed He will not show up for us either. God has made an everlasting covenant with us that he will not turn away from us or to do us good. Great is Godís faithfulness.
We have a position of fellowship with Him as Jesus has brought us back into right relationship with God. Paul said in I Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. God will not suffer us to be tempted above that which we are able. God is the rock of our salvation. He pours out his mercy on all from generation to generation to give knowledge of salvation to all of us by the remission of their sins. Hebrews 8:12 I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. When we keep the position God has put us in we will continually confess our sins, and God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
We have a position of righteousness with God. The position we must be careful to be in is one where God is our cause and we are committed to it. It is God that does great things and unsearchable marvelous things without number. When we fall on our faces and worship God it must be done in a position of truth. God is a Spirit and they that worship him but worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. We worry about positions that man can give and see but forsake the position God has created us for; to the praise of His Glory. We have forsaken the treasure that God has put in us. We are ignorant of Godís righteousness, and going about to establish our own righteousness not submitting ourselves unto the righteousness of God.
We are to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and when we position ourselves to put him first he will add all things we need unto us. God then will reveal himself and his righteousness from faith to faith. We will grow in Him as tender plants. We will find that God can be found out and He is the Almighty unto perfection. God is great and we know him not neither can the number of his years be searched out. God does great things which we as man cannot comprehend. The next position is that of knowledge we have are in Godís will that gives it. Such knowledge is too wonderful for us, it is high, and we cannot attain unto it. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. No man knows the Son, but the Father; neither know any man the Father save the Son, and he to whosoever the Son will reveal him. Godís ways are unsearchable and his judgments and ways past finding out. Who can know the mind of God except God reveal it to them? Wisdom and might is the Lordís; He gives wisdom unto the wise and knowledge to them that know understanding. It is God that has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence.
The position of the Church is to know the manifold wisdom of God. We are to bless the Lord, glorify God, be thankful unto Him in all things, honor Him and reverence His power. We are to do these things forever and ever. The gift of salvation gives place and position to every believer that we might publish with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of all Godís wondrous works. For the Word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. God through His Will manifests His justice. God has positioned man to obey his Word that we measure up to his standard fully. We have a position to enforce righteousness, punish evil and reward good. There is no bias in God, no connivance at wrong and no excessive rigor. The Will of God operates by way of His Truth.
