God’s Kingdom Within

A word of encouragement from Pastor Marie and
a timely message for the body from Pastor Roy.

God’s Kingdom Within

– Luke 17:20      “The Kingdom of God is within.”

Romans 8:14-16 (Passion)–  God’s Spirit will bear witness with our spirit

“Know Yourself”—  Get in touch with you’re  personal elan; unique strengths, style, motivations, and deep desires

—  The inner sense that, “This is right for me.”  — and let God “bear witness” to it: Yea or Nay through the Holy Spirit living within you.

— Isaiah 30:21-22a  — “This is the right path; follow it!”

Jeremiah 20:9  — “His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not.”

— The “seeds” of His will have been placed deep within you at the time of your creation. They are found in the same place that your personal elan exists. They will interact with the environment you live in and develop God’s purpose IN you.

— As they are allowed to grow they will bring you into the fullness of your potential; Spiritual Maturity.

Carl Jung“The purpose of our lives is to become fully the person we are.”

— Discover the “seeds”  — Task

   Nurture the “seeds”  — Responsibility

— Listen to all parts of yourself: Conscious and Unconscious (dreams and visions), physical senses, spiritual senses (inner voice of God)

Hebrews 4:9-11 (Passion)  — Don’t force it — REST in His peace

Proverbs 3:5  — TRUST in God

– Psalm 46:10 (Passion) —  Surrender you anxiety– stop striving!

Psalm 131:1-2  — David’s approach and positioning

Psalm 131:3  — Word for RCF –: “O, people of God, your time has come to quietly TRUST.”

Romans 8:28  (Passion)
