I have heard it said many times how we don’t have to work for what God has in store for us because we already have the victory. Now I do agree that Jesus did come to earth in the fashion of a man, and that he did bring to pass as the truth every word in which his Father had spoken for him to do. Jesus did as he was suppose to do in showing us how the story should end for each of us that believe in him, and follow his words and his commandments. The one thing that needs to be highlighted for all to see, and for all to know is that Jesus showed us how each of our stories should end in victory. We all know the A and the Z, the beginning and the ending; but there is a whole lot of things going on in between the A and the Z in which we will have a lot to say about, and to do about together with the Godhead, even unto Father. It is easy to see this just by knowing some of the life events that are currently taking place among our friends, family, and others. When you remove all of the staple things in life that we all have in common to live our lives; we then can begin to see just how different the lives of all the people we know are from one another. There is not just a one way story that works for all. The ending of victory for each story works for all, but once we hit the B and move forward, and farther into the stories; well, then it’s really each person’s story working out all things together for its own victory, thank God. I know that we are all so grateful that only Jesus could have his story. I could not even imagine how I would walk out Jesus’ B-Y just knowing that Death and hanging on the cross made the list. Then comes the really hard part of Jesus’ story of crucifixion, denial, and being forsaken by the Father from whose bosom that he once came from to at the appointed time become His only begotten son: say it isn’t so says Jesus, say it isn’t so: Matthew 27:46, “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? And for those who once believed that we have no work to do now to receive what’s ours; well, Jesus showed us that there is plenty of working out the work that has already been done to have the victory. So let’s work out the work that has already been done: B – Y. Working All Things Together, Even Unto Father.
How many of us have an idea of where we are on our list of B-Y in working out our victory. We all know that A is the start, and that Z is the end; however, we just may not know how far we have come to finishing our work to see the fruits of our blessings. And it doesn’t mean that your death is imminent just because you finished the main work that you were called to do. Jesus death was his main work, along with his rising from the dead where he remains alive, and well at the right hand of his Father. Noah lived another 350 years after the flood, and Abraham lived another 75 years after the birth of Isaac. My point is, finishing your main work doesn’t mean that you are going to be called home: it would be nice to take part in the victory on the other end of enjoyment for a little while. How many have felt like the Father has forsaken then at times? OK, that’s good: it’s just means that you are on track. We should all feel like that from time to time as the flesh is moved out of its comfort zone of having expectations being fulfilled, or at least receiving some response. Psalm 22:1-2, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? 2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.” It’s just the lack of relationship between the flesh and the spirit: where the flesh is needy and feeling despair, the spirit is over on the deck of the boat in the middle of a storm taking a nap. It’s just two different schools of thoughts with the bottom line thought to be taken from the spirit. Once we get to Heaven, we can get the father of faith to tell us just how it really was out there working out the work with God. Abraham was a pioneer in this faith thing while not having regular communications with the home office on his very first adventure. And to top it all off, the school of thought from the home office was that of Heaven’s culture; for as Abraham would walk, there would be little talk if any coming back, because this is how Heaven does it. So just know, as Jesus knew, that you are not forsaken when there is nothing to hear; for this is how Heaven does it: if you are on track and doing alright, you may go on in silence for another day and night. We can find peace in just knowing the great company that joins us in feeling forsaken at times as we keep on with the work of working out the work already done. Now let’s go get our victory as we stay strong in the faith, while Working All Things Together, Even Unto Father.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good!
