On one side there is a dark cloud. It is full of pain, sickness, disease, poverty, and death. All of curses talked about in Deuteronomy 28 are swarming in circles.
There is a bright cloud on other side. It is a white cloud with health, prosperity, peace, and life. All of blessings talked about in Deuteronomy 28 are floating in this bright cloud.
A calm, deep voice says, "Choose."
You respond with obvious, "I have chosen. I want life."
The deep voice tells you to continue to look into cloud of promise. The voice says to not to look back at darkness...
You understand quickly because you didn't and still don't want death penalty! That's why you turned to Jesus! He died so that your sins could be forgiven and taken away from you (Psalms 103:12). He saved you.
If you've accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior as you were told to in Romans 10:9,10 then you have stepped out of dark cloud into light one.
No matter what enemy says that you feel, see or hear, you are really saved! You have been set free from sickness, poverty, pain, and death (Isaiah 53:5,6)
As I was reminded, keep your eye on Lord and His kingdom. He is light. He is cloud of freedom...
Don't look back but walk forward into light more and more. Grow in Lord and you'll see more clearly (John 8:12)
Jesus loves you and has set so much in place for you to have. When Jesus said it was finished in (John 19:30) He wasn't kidding. The bright light, and life inside it is very fabulous.
Don't ever be deceived into thinking that God won't give you all that He has promised you. He's not keeping any good thing from you (Psalms 84:11,12). You're accepting what life you live in. You choose.
There is a smile or a frown on your face when you look around at your world. One of main things that strongly determines what you have is what you believe.
In order to accept gifts of light, we have to start by knowing they're available and waiting for us! No wonder God told us to renew our minds in His word (Romans 12:2). By reading, thinking, and saying what He said (Joshua 1:7,8), we place ourselves in position to get good things that God has already made available to us.
Think about a game of catch for a minute. There are a couple of people throwing a ball back and forth. If one moves out of path of ball that is coming, there will be no receiving it. If one person puts their hand behind their back there will be no receiving.
