A Constitution is defined as a body of fundamental principles or established precedents according to which a state or other organization is acknowledged to be governed. For the Citizens of the Kingdom of our God and our King, the scriptures are our Constitution. In the framework of scripture we are provided a clear and distinct method, or the correct plan of action, for Kingdom Citizens to follow in every situation, each circumstance, and for all of our relationships. I sometime call the scriptures the Manufacturer’s Handbook or the Great Book of Learning.
How important is this understanding and the subsequent action? David said, “I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11. The Message translation says, “I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart so I won’t sin myself bankrupt.” This is followed by “Be Blessed, God; train me in your ways of wise living; I’ll transfer to my lips all the counsel that comes from your mouth.” We are to internalize our God’s Word in our spirit (our heart), not just our minds. This is not just memorization. This is what happens when we practice, drill, and rehearse the powerful and living Word of our God until His Word becomes who we are and what we are. Not an afterthought, but an immediate reply to everything we encounter. This is our God’s plan and His will for all of humanity.
Solomon said in Proverbs 3:6, “In all your ways (every thing you do) know, recognize and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” In Proverbs 16:4, “Roll your works (everything you do) upon the Lord (Commit and trust them wholly (completely to Him (let Him have everything – good and bad); He will cause your thoughts (your mind- temporary) to become agreeable to His will (eternity) and so shall your plans be established and your plans will succeed.” How do we “know” God? We must know His Word as the living, breathing power He describes it to be. The distinguisher between Spirit (eternal) and mind (temporary). We are provided no other printed, living, breathing method to determine our motivation and our direction. It is a huge challenge for humanity to recognize our eternity and our eternalness. As we have said, our God is a God of relationship, eternal relationship. Relationship requires fellowship and fellowship requires time spent together. There are no shortcuts. No way around spending time together, communicating and fellowshipping with His Spirit speaking directly to our spirit.
What a joy! What an honor! To fellowship directly and personally with the Creator and Designer of everything. Our Father, our Friend, and our Lord. Our Designer. May our God’s Greatest Blessings be Yours FOREVER!!!
