Introducing Perfect Mess
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. (ESV)

Sanctification is the same word in Hebrew as wedding, the day two people die to individual lives in order to rise to life as One. In a moment one whole that becomes something greater because two people died to thier desire to stay one.
It is the same when we come to Christ. It's a death, therefore letting go is required. Yet, what we become in our letting go we expand into more than we ever were on our own.
We die to what hinders us from standing naked and unashamed before God, so that we might live free in His Presence. #jesus #utmost #myutmostforhishighest #shereadstruthbible #biblescripture #perfectmessrhonda #perfectmess #rhondadelamoriniere #rhondadela #becomingewe ... See MoreSee Less
Oh the territory traveled between, "Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me..." Luke 15:12 and, "I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants." Luke 15:19.
It takes some of us a lifetime to understand the depth and breadth of our own depravity, our utter helplessness and hopelessness without Jesus.
Yet, He waits. With the precision of the most skillful surgeon, using time and brokenness as His tools, He operates on us, making room in our hearts for a Life to spring up.
It's a miracle the way God teaches us Grace.
Jesus, thank-You for every road You ordain for us to help us come to a place where we are willing to open up our hearts and admit that they have been vacant without You. Help us stop traveling down the dusty roads of this world to fill them, and let us fill them with You, Jesus.

The hardest part in belonging to Jesus is actually realizing our need for Him. It's easy to accept the lord of our own making, and to bow down to our man made gods, who we may have even convinced ourselves are Jesus. Yet, He does not dwell in temples made with human hands. And when I find any part of my strength trying to carry Him, I know what I'm worshipping is not Him at all
He carries me.
The longer I live, love, and walk with Him, I find that this is not a journey of me growing in wisdom and knowledge, as much as one of allowing myself to be unwound from any wisdom and knowledge I thought I had so that He might carry me in His own. I am safe to be weak, inknowing, and vulnerable in Him. This is blessed freedom, to KNOW I am HELD in the Hands of the One Who Knows and Knows me.

God is REAL and He is REAL in us! It is worth whatever strain to climb the heights, or whatever dread to face the valleys we must endure to KNOW, EXPERIENCE, and UNDERSTAND this TRUTH.
No matter what we endure here in the shadow of time, it will ALL seem SO small compared to KNOWING Him, the One Who climbed down from heaven, and humbled Himself into our flesh to KNOW us.
The One Who allowed our SIN to become REAL in Him wants us to KNOW that He is REAL in us.
We can't receive one without also accepting the other.
Oh, how He longs for us to KNOW and BELIEVE Him. ... See MoreSee Less
Numbers 13 records one area of failure for God's people. God had sent his people to explore the gift He was giving them, the gift of a Promised Land. This was a remarkable place, the land of milk and honey, where grapes grew so big the clusters had to be carried on poles across men's shoulders. Any parent who has waited on Christmas morning for thier child to open that One Gift can imagine the exhilaration of what this moment meant for the Israelites, the gift recipients, and God, the gift Giver.
Yet, when these people return, instead of boasting about the AMAZING gift of this home that God was providing them, most of the people who went to spy out the land came back with reports about how great the enemies were that were occupying the land. They said, "we can't attack these people, they are stronger than we are..." Numbers 13:30. God's children fixated on their fears of men instead of resting in the faith of thier Father.
Many times we blame God for not providing us the Promised Land we were expecting in this life. Could it be that we are standing right in the midst of His PROMISE for us, yet our eyes are on the Giants who are occupying where we want to be, or the fortified walls and barriers that seem to mockingly taught us with ,"keep out" signs posted all around, or perhaps the myriads of armies that seem to be standing between us and His Promise over us? Could it be that instead of looking at God, we are looking at all the barriers to His Promises?
God sent His people on a mission to behold what He had given to them, not what He intended to keep from them.
When we set our eyes on Jesus, we can always look forward to life He will bring from any situation, the freedom He will deliver from any fear, and the victory He will gain over every territory God has entrusted to us.
Let's stop looking around the territory of our lives and offering a bad report to ourselves and others.
And let's start looking around and seeing it through the Good News of God's promises.
What is an area of your life that you have been giving a bad report about? Why not trust God, instead today?

God rules over rulers, and is ALWAYS in control, no matter what.
If heaven rules that means that we don't. Much of the chaos we see around us going on is due to our unbelief in this truth. We don't believe that God rules so we rule ourselves and blame others who rule themselves and try to press their self appointed sovereignty upon us.
There is an order that comes when we place God upon the throne of our hearts and leave Him there. Jesus will truly become our Prince of Peace and our government, every detail that governs us, will be born upon His shoulders. Oh, what joy and peace there is when allow God to have His rightful place in our lives. (Danial 4 devotions)

God's DNA is in us....let THAT sink in! We really ARE His kids and we get to discover more and more what that means as we go, allowing His Life within us to become evident to us and to the whole world.
Precious ones, all that's needed to overcome this world isn't waiting to be discoverd OUT THERE somewhere, it's waiting for us to believe IN HERE, in you and me...Christ in us, the hope of Glory!

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
Hands outstretched towards us, proclaiming our choice, "stand on earth firmly or follow My Voice?"
"Become My Word or stay a man?"
"You get to choose, I give My life so you can...."
"Enter eternally now, and walk with Me
Or stand on your own, you get the choice to be....
"Your own man in the making, who writes your own story
Or, My child eternal, who lives in My Glory.
"But know this, my child, and may you choose well,
"That I made you,,sweet child, for My Glory to dwell"
"And should you choose to live a life outside my grace...
"Part of your heart will ever long for My face "
"For, you are My child, My Beloved Creation"
"I formed you, and fashioned you in great estimation"
"Knowing in advance how you would struggle and strain to be known,
I ensured a WAY to bring you home."
"I became your flesh, and came for you,
Like a flag, My body hung this message that is True "
"Your Word became flesh, bore your curse on a tree.
So, your flesh can become My Word and welcome you home with Me "
