Look Up, Look Down

The Psalmist asks:

Where could I go from your Spirit?
    Or where could I flee from your presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, you are there.
    If I make my bed in Sheol,[a] behold, you are there!
If I take the wings of the dawn,
    and settle in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there your hand will lead me,
    and your right hand will hold me.
 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me;
    the light around me will be night”;
 even the darkness doesn’t hide from you,
    but the night shines as the day.
    The darkness is like light to you.

Psalm 139:7-12

Of course, he knows the answer. We know the answer. He fills the universe with His presence and His Word. He spoke and the heavens were filled with more stars and planets than we can count.

Genesis 1:18 states that after the creation of all the heavenly bodies, He saw that it was good. It was a blessing of goodness that tops off His masterpiece.

Are you a redeemed child of His? Have you submitted your universe of sin and flesh to the Creator? If you have, He can say, “It is good.” This Word is powerful. When we have been transformed – re-created as His children, we can step back and say, “It is good.”

It is time to stop the “wretched” talk and the self-deprecating humility babble. I believe it is no longer necessary. Do you believe Him or not? Do you want to live without sin, stop proclaiming you are a sinner. Your words will certainly come true, if you don’t.

That doesn’t mean we have to say we no longer sin, but we need to walk (and speak) in His anointing.  His anointing is goodness, righteousness, freedom from sin. I believe He has that much faith in the sacrifice of His Son. It was strong enough to apply for all of mankind, and all of time and space.

Lift up your countenance, my friend and speak in faith that you are made well. You are good. That word speaks through time to the fulfillment in Jesus, the Messiah Redeemer. When He returns and sits on the throne, we will receive the fullness of that word, “Be ye perfect.”
