Unquestion Revelation

In that day you will ask Me nothing —John 16:23

When is “that day”? It is when the ascended Lord makes you one with the Father. “In that day” you will be one with the Father just as Jesus is, and He said, “In that day you will ask Me nothing.” Until the resurrection life of Jesus is fully exhibited in you, you have questions about many things. Then after a while you find that all your questions are gone— you don’t seem to have any left to ask. You have come to the point of total reliance on the resurrection life of Jesus, which brings you into complete oneness with the purpose of God. Are you living that life now? If not, why aren’t you?

“In that day” there may be any number of things still hidden to your understanding, but they will not come between your heart and God. “In that day you will ask Me nothing”— you will not need to ask, because you will be certain that God will reveal things in accordance with His will. The faith and peace of John 14:1 has become the real attitude of your heart, and there are no more questions to be asked. If anything is a mystery to you and is coming between you and God, never look for the explanation in your mind, but look for it in your spirit, your true inner nature— that is where the problem is. Once your inner spiritual nature is willing to submit to the life of Jesus, your understanding will be perfectly clear, and you will come to the place where there is no distance between the Father and you, His child, because the Lord has made you one. “In that day you will ask Me nothing.”

Journal Entry for Today-JDV

Lord, I wonder why I have yet to come to that day when I simply trust you to work all things for your honor and glory and my good? I often wonder and worry about all the uncertainties in my life and the lives of those I love. I wonder and worry about the choices that I have made and will make in the future, and then I wonder and worry about the choices of those I love and the pain they could face. And then it occurs to me that I worry because I fail to trust and am uncertain of my status with You.  But you remind me that because of Jesus, I am one with You, and all things work for good. You remind me that nothing can separate me from You, not even my wrong choices. I think I simply need to let go of the outcomes, and trust You to be God and to unravel life according to your promises, love, mercy and grace.

And God says…”You want to trust Me in all things, but you are accustomed to trusting your natural senses and using “common sense”. You would like to step out of the boat and onto the water like Peter, but you are uncertain about your worthiness and My faithfulness. You have not lived in the supernatural  enough to trust your “supernatural senses” so you rely on what you know, your natural senses, and they tell you that you will sink if you step out; that unless you control things to meet your own needs,  you cannot be certain your needs will be met. You have not lived a life of day to day, minute by minute trust, except as you  face overwhelming obstacles that you cannot control and manage to your own satisfaction and sense of wellbeing. So I allow trials and circumstances come your way that “force you” out of the boat out onto the water with Me. Trust in Me and I will hold you up, seek first the kingdom of God, which is Jesus, and I will meet all your needs. Acknowledge Me in all your ways and I will make your paths straight. And remember that nothing can separate you from My love.”


Romans 8:38-39 (MSG)

31-39So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:
They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s  love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
