BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 218 ( Less is Greater, Greater is less )

“Be humble in the presence of God’s mighty power, and he will honour you when the time comes.”

We are partakers of God’s divine nature.

God is awesome.

We are called to be humbly awesome too.

There is a lesson in the account of how Daniel prophesies to King Nebuchadnezzar by interpreting his dream of being chopped down as ruler to a place of no better status than a grass eating animal until he has humbled himself..

After seven years it looks as if he has been made humble but then goes on boastful of his awesomeness in which he rules again until you realise that he is attributing that to God’s control this time not his own.

We are called to drop our pride, the swagger of our ego, for it to die in humility.

Not, however, to polarise this to the place of being worthless as a worm or doormat.

Only to the place of knowing God’s way is always best and powerful.

We focus on Gods will, walk in His ways and recognise Him as that in us.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

It is as if we are being called out of the shallow waters of the good and pleasing and into the oceans of perfect.

Move forward to reposition, relocate be ready for new.

Not a time to rearrange chairs on the Titanic but to get off and be where we need to be positioned for God’s perfect will.

2020 has reshaped and prepared us for the growing up again from the foundational roots into the new tree of 2021 and on.

The suddenly time so often seen in scripture is here.

Time to step out of the old boldly with an extended stride to accelerate the momentum into the new dance God is leading us in.

The illustration shows Jesus dancing into the new with us as His child standing upon His feet to know the divine moves of the dance. The Holy Spirit spectrum within and the darkness pushed aside by it.

Six Scriptures that come to mind:

“Be humble in the presence of God’s mighty power, and he will honor you when the time comes.”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“But he gave orders not to disturb the stump and roots. This is to show that you will be king once again, after you learn that the God who rules from heaven is in control.”‭‭Daniel‬ ‭4:26‬ ‭CEV‬

You will be forced to live with the wild animals, away from people. For seven years you will eat grass, as though you were an ox, until you learn that God Most High is in control of all earthly kingdoms and that he is the one who chooses their rulers.”‭‭Daniel‬ ‭4:25, 32‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“In the same way, the younger ones should willingly support the leadership of the elders. In every relationship, each of you must wrap around yourself the apron of a humble servant. Because: God resists you when you are proud but multiplies grace and favour when you are humble.”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:5‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“The Lord All-Powerful says: When that time comes, I will get rid of every idol in the country, and they will be forgotten forever. I will also do away with their prophets and those evil spirits that control them.”‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭13:2‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭ESV‬‬
