December 11, 2010, "Setting our Gaze on God"

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written By: Teresa Criswell

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
~ Jesus Christ as recorded in Matthew 5:16 (NKJV) ~

"If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen."
~ I Peter 4:11 (NKJV)~

Enamored. Awestruck. Amazed.

I shake my head as I sit here in this place of absolute awe of The Great I Am.
The All Sufficient God who needs know one, yet this Amazing God desires ALL of us as He is beyond amazingly awesome.

For He is All Consuming Fire fueled by who He is; passionate Love.
The Great I Am, The Great Father God,
The Greatly to be Feared God who is the most Famous One;
The Deliverer of the trapped and broken;
The Strengthener of the weak and tired;
The Refuge of the fearful and timid is LOVE.
I know that this is not a secret revelation; yet to truly attempt to ponder this mind blowing thought and attempting to understand such eternal greatness leads me to the cliff of 'vanishing points'.

Wow trusting in Him leads me to His ALL CONSUMING heartbeat of purposeful thoughts as He is full of faith towards us.

Our God is continually desiring to transform us into His glorious light so that the world is able to see the reflection of His Awesome, Uncontainable Glory, consumed by Holiness no one can contend with. This glorious Light of Who He is leads us to the reminder that we can do nothing of great eternal, 'destinal God~purpose' without the Creator of Destiny; Almighty God through Jesus Christ revealed by the Holy Spirit which must be revealed by us who have received and confessed Jesus Christ as Lord not only in word but in deed as we trust in Him to go about doing His excellent plans led by His Compassion and His All Consuming Love.

When we are tempted to do the things of God on our own strength; we will soon learn that our sin nature and frustrated flesh is all that will be revealed. However, when I finally lean on Him forsaking my own understanding; the 'God Nature' on the inside will be revealed as we see the overflowing power of God set forth the gaze of those watching to gaze only upon Almighty Eternal God, giving Him all the glory which is already His!

  1. Hi Teresa,

    God desires "to transform us into His glorious light... Yes and Amen!

    Changing me from who I am into who He wants me to be is the desire I cling to; to trust Him enough that I refuse to go out on my own strength.

    I set my gaze upon Him who shines forth in everlasting glory.

    Blessings and peace.
