Relationships of a supernatural kind don’t mean God is looking for you to be Him in all you do. But only to be His offspring who are delivered as His sons and daughters among creation. In other words, live as those who understand who they are by the shed blood of Jesus. Never by the accords of this world.
It will not benefit the kingdom of God if those who are a part of it live as the world does in sins and evils always.
James 1:2-12 (GW) My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways. 3 You know that such testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 Endure until your testing is over. Then you will be mature and complete, and you won’t need anything.
The relationships of believers are a test of faith. Each may have those who do not live in accord with the supernatural presence of the Spirit of God. When will they no longer be a test? It depends on your willingness to seek the wisdom to bring change to overcome.
5 If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and he will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn’t find fault with them.
This makes it possible to endure in any relationship. The Holy Spirit provides the truth from the word of God. That helps you know what you are to do by your part in it. The reality for you, a believer, is a testimony of you living by the truth.
6 When you ask for something, don’t have any doubts. A person who has doubts is like a wave that is blown by the wind and tossed by the sea. 7 A person who has doubts shouldn’t expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 A person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time and can’t make up his mind about anything.
Many Christians struggle to live a life of faith in Christ. Regardless of whom they have a relationship with. Why? They doubt their ability to be as God expects. As a result of ignorance ministries and pulpits contribute to neglecting to teach the truth of the word.
9 Humble believers should be proud because being humble makes them important.
There is nothing wrong with knowing the position you have in Christ. He has made you an important son or daughter of an Almighty God.
10 Rich believers should be proud because being rich should make them humble. Rich people will wither like flowers.
Riches are not always concerning money. It is also about being rich in Spirit and the things of God that are of great blessings to those in need.
11 The sun rises with its scorching heat and dries up plants. The flowers drop off, and the beauty is gone. The same thing will happen to rich people. While they are busy, they will die.
The rich are destined to live by money. But for believers, it is all about doing the Father’s will. Seeing the needs of others as the opportunity to reveal His image no matter where we are. Therefore, do not allow the enemy to distract you from your ministry of witness and testimony of Christ. It is the hope of glory.
12 Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
The greatest relationship for you is between you and Jesus, by the Holy Spirit. If you fail to nurture this alignment, all others could be a struggle. As the enemy is seeking whom he may devour. Marriage and ministry are all boosted by religion as paramount for any supernatural relationship. However, do they compare to yours with the Father and Son?
Worldly social parameters are off the charts in the manner of supernatural unity and accord. Purged of moral character and integrity. Filled with anxieties over inclusiveness, equity, and relativism.
As a result, none will ever build a relationship that fulfills what God purposed in His creation of males and females in humanity. Nor will these narrative terms endure the test of trials.
1 Peter 4:12-19 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
In any relationship, there will undoubtedly be challenges. Some will criticize the very name of Christ. But remain joyful as the Spirit of God is in you to continue to supernaturally bring His glory to you. So no matter what they say. It changes nothing when it concerns Christ and your glorified status in Him.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
It is vital that if you suffer for any reason other than being a Christian, never be ashamed because it brings God glory.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
Judgment is God’s, for what we do in this life of the flesh. Even a child of the Highest.
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
God orchestrates relationships for a purpose. But none are beyond a believer’s supernatural ability to bring His image into it. He is faithful to do all He has revealed in His word. Every believer is to be as the truth reveals, and nothing more will ever be required.
Being who you are coming down to the fact you have the power and authority in Christ to defeat the devil in every arena of this world order. But to win you must know the truth according to the word of God. This means a union by the Holy Spirit with the Father and the Son so that the supernatural influence of a spiritual force at work on this earth, is just as God envisioned in the beginning.
