BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS 55( Less is Greater, Greater is less ).

Divine Sight and New Lenses

The lock down period has shown us how dependent in the past we have been on retail, our eating habits, our entertainment and socialising Mode of working so many things which in fact we have discovered can be done differently.

We have discovered that we can be reformed in such things as Family togetherness, meal providing, time taking, technology sharing. We have been given the opportunity to do things differently some of which have empowered us and made us less dependent.

We must not waste the lessons we have learnt as we slip back into life out of lockdown.

Also God May desire to reveal His heart and to give us a clearer vision of His wisdom.

To give us clarity in areas that have perhaps confused us and to give us confidence in our own voice and empowerment.

A boldness not to rely on someone else’s ‘yes’ but to be more independent in following Him instead of the crowd.

There is a power in having time to make changes and to be in the moment.

There is sometimes such habitual business in our lives that it is inconvenient to get off the carrousel and observe the humdrum chaos of constant fast motion.

I ponder on whether God finds it hard to penetrate that space too.

For it never being convenient to be interrupted and disrupted.

Business in life gives no space for anything else to be birthed or erupt and perhaps that is exactly what God desires right now.

Permission to interrupt.

Disrupt the habit of our life.

To Erupt and explode into something new.

Perhaps the Divine Vision is for us to meet God in a new way.

Perhaps the old is tired, malfunctioning and needs clearing for a new creation and era.

Locally we have witnessed a controlled explosion to obliterate the Power Station’s old towers. There is mess left and mess in building new and yet also anticipation and excitement for a new phase of development.

Explosions are messy, but exciting and liberating as they give rise to new birth and a new era.

The illustration hinges around Seeing clearly. God’s divine vision is all seeing. 20/20. What are the lenses we need to focus and align our vision to see as He does?

Wisdom too to realise that as we age our vision can deteriorate and not be as clear seeing as that of the young.

Two scriptures that come to mind:

“that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, ”‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:17-18‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”‭‭Matthew‬ ‭13:16-17‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  1. Sing a new song to the Lord, psalm 96:1.
    This is the scripture that came to mind as I read through your blog. I think it speaks of renewing our attitude of being joyful to the Lord. We can not bring strange fire, anything ungodly, but we must see God for who He is and for what He has given us. Seeing afresh the grace and mercy poured out through the sacrificial life of His Son for each and every one of us.
    It’s strange how we can look at something and see differently to what the person next to us sees. How we perceive even a piece of Scripture can mean so much to one person and yet another insignificant. The person in the street may think we are barmy because they see old words that were for a strange set of people centuries ago, meaningless today in our age of technology and science. Yet technology and science are proving ’stories’ of the Bible. (just read an interesting article on the walls of Jericho, science proving the facts!)
    We need to see eye to eye with God, however hard and tough life gets, I know from personal experience, life can get tough, as I see and perceive it from my perspective, and yes I question God, and yes I shouted angrily at Him, and yes I questioned whether He was still there (stupid really, who was I talking to if He wasn’t😂) yes I cried help me, and matters got worse. But there are reasons, I can not see what God sees, He knows the beginning to the end, He sees the pain, and He hurts just as much.
    BUT God wants us to see so much more than just mere inconveniences He wants us to see the beauty of His creation, He wants us to see those who give their lives so that we can be safe, He wants us to see that by a few simple words we can have joy in our hearts no matter what, He wants us to see the Heavenly beauty of His coming Kingdom.
    A new song, let’s raise our hands and voices and sing that song.
    A new sight, let’s see eye to eye with God and each other, let’s see the Love of our caring Saviour at work calling and caring for all His people.

    1. Powerful thoughts to share Dave. Thank you so much again for your insights and thoughts. I just had an image come to mind of Him sitting like the optician does choosing the lenses out of the box to insert into our vision specs and saying is that clearer or not and fine tuning it to the nth degree for our prescription for 20/20 vision. And each one of us nee gets different no good viewing through any one else’s prescription. It is perfect to us. That’s how He seems to use our blog sharing ideas too!
      Thank you Dave. xx
