We live in two realms. The physical realm, we have a sensory system of taste, touch, feel, sight, hearing…, and also the spiritual realm. In the Spiritual realm, faith in Him is under attack, through Demonic “thoughts,” to doubt Him, deny Him, fear, despair, self -reliance, questionings that lead you downward into hopelessness or exalt you into delusion. God is faithful who has called us into fellowship with His Son.” {1 Cor 1:9}. Faith in Him is a choice. It is developed by His Spirit taking His Word and enlightening it to us and our applying it. We all walk by faith, and make choices by faith. The realm that dominates is the realm we trust. Trusting Him does not keep us from difficulties, for Peter writes and commends believers who were suffering and for their love displayed in times of testings, when their faith was under attack. Look at the response of faith they chose. They did not live as thought there were no troubles but in the midst they made choices to believe Him. Look at the words underlined.

“In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;  and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,  obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.”-  {1 Peter 1:6-9}

Two realms we live in at any given time. The people chose  to rejoice in Him, knowing it would work out to His praise and glory at His return.   Understand He knows you love him, your faith in Him shows. Know  your salvation is safe and secure  Keep trusting Him. Let His Word, His realm dominate your thinking, influence your decision making, motivations, in this physical realm! Feed your soul with His Word…Think on Him chose to rejoice, Think on His coming again. Think on the truth He knows you love Him. Think on the truth your salvation is sure and secure! Chose to think and rejoice on Him.

Transforming truths!
