“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”
When we look out at what appears crazy it is the time to recall the words above and to look around to seek that table knowing that Jesus face, his presence, will be there we are already invited to sit with Him.
Knowing that we need fear no evil because He is with me and hides me out of reach of the enemy.
This is the confidence that our belief and faith gives us in everyday life.
Where we in the quietness of our own heart have turned from any fearful situation and said “Yes, I trust in You,” it has been broadcast loudly in heaven and is oil poured out to burn in our lamp more brightly and this is the light the world needs to see and envy and seek.
It is in our DNA from before we are born and enables us to be transformed to have the mind of Christ and live in that place
We just need to be “Holy unto the Lord “ and obey irrespective of what we understand just ‘know and have trust’ will navigate us through any season.
Anything or thought which is not of the Lord we are called to take captive, to convert it to a truth spoken by Him and that lie becomes our prisoner and we can be encouraged.
God always has a redemptive solution to every issue or problem.
The battle is His we can trust Him if we do not allow ourselves to become prey to the enemies lies that say anything other than that.
Jesus never taught how to deal with unanswered prayer because He never had to.
His prayers are always answered.
If we hand our prayer to Him he will intercede on our behalf and we can rest assured.
We in Christ never need to act like mere men because we have the wisdom that is Christ in our minds.
Wisdom is Christ.
God has supplied for our needs already.
Christ has overcome already.
We are victorious in all ways already.
What need we fear.
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,”
The illustration shows the spectrum light emanating from Christ as in the transfiguration. That same light pervading and emanating from us as we too are transformed into His likeness.
The merging of being hidden in Christ as one.
The safety of that place as it casts back the darkness.
