Getting one’s own sovereignty right internally helps transform things within us and thus in our life. It may or may not change things around us, but it allows us to see what is ours and what is not. Being able to see this is very important for then we are able to develop and retain our inner treasure. Jesus said, “if they do not receive you, then shake the dust off your feet – and KEEP YOUR PEACE”. This seems selfish to the outside, but it means being in the core self where our connection with God is, that’s the elixir that changes things from the inside. This takes internal homework – a lot of people don’t do it.
At some point we see Jesus is the inner teacher, the only inner teacher, others help from the outside. All others, including all angels, like us, have sin and hereditary evil, and cannot see or be what Jesus is. He is all loving, all peace, all wise – with knowledge of every particular process and change that we need. He went through them all for our sake and produced the path, the way, so He knows. He is the master of masters, the king of Kings, the hero of heroes.
We go through trials, temptations, fits of anxiety, fear and anger. All temptations produce anxiety by nature because the outcome is not known whether good or evil will win. But while we are deep in it, we who love God, part of us has an inner awareness, we keep the faith, and we come through to the other side. This is how He removes hereditary evil in us. He is closest to us during the trials of our life. It’s like giving birth, its hurts like a son-of-a-bitch, but in the end it produces life and great love. It is like riding a steep roller coaster, we know the vertical fall is coming and it’s going to be intense, but the level swing produces great joy.
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
