….his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalms 91:4 King James Version
We have talked pretty extensively about the truth being our shield and buckler. We talked about the truth covers, surrounds, defends and protect. This is the Father. His truth is our shield and buckler. I want to take a step out and walk on water literally and figuratively when it comes to the truth that we should be walking in. Lets look at that scripture again.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4 New International Version
Walking in the truth means walking in and on the Word. When Peter walked on water he was walking on the The Word. The Word is Jesus. Jesus and His Word are One. When He told Peter ‘come’ that gave Peter permission to go above the normal. Someone may say, “But that was Peter and Jesus gave him permission to do it.” Well that’s good news, because if He gave Peter permission then you have permission. Peter at that time was not born again. So he had to physically get permission from Jesus. You do not. Jesus is on the inside of you and you have inherited all of his authority and power and ability. Look at what Jesus said.
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. John 14:12 New Living Translation
So for anyone who still needs permission, there it is. As believers we must learn to walk in THE TRUTH. Not the truth or lie of what we see but THE TRUTH of God’s Word. The only reason Jesus shows us things in the Word is to show us what we too can do. Think of your job. At one point in time you did not know how to do the job you are doing or at least as well as you do it now. But let me ask you a question. Just because you had never done the job before did that mean you could not do the job? Of course not, because you are currently doing the job now. The same thing goes for you being able to walk on water, change water to wine, or be 3 miles from some place and need to be there in one second and do it with just a thought. That’s right with a thought. Did you notice when Jesus was walking on water and then got into the boat they were still out from shore? Then all of a sudden they were at the shore. Jesus never said one word.
Then they were eager to let him in the boat, and immediately they arrived at their destination! John 6:21 New Living Translation
Jesus is our Head. We are His Body. Whatever the Head can do the Body can do. Your head doesn’t do one thing and your body something else. It’s a package deal. If your head is going to Kroger then your body has to go to Kroger too. If your head has to go to work then your body has to go to work too. What your head does your body does. Do you believe that YOU ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST. You are not just sitting there in front of the computer or on your phone or IPad. You are seated in Heavenly places WITH Christ Jesus. His power is yours. His authority is yours. He has given it to you in HIS NAME. The Name belongs to you. Believe these truths and you will do them. Jesus is waiting for you to believe and you will do the works He did and greater works than these. Jesus said so. His Word is Truth!!! Walk in THE TRUTH!!!!
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
