“and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things,”
Isolation comes NOT from God.
We can spend hours of time dwelling on our own thoughts but things do not become unlocked until we share with others.
Collaboration is essential to our whole being.
We were created by the Creator, The Uncreated, for His pleasure. We were designed to co-create with Him and it is our creativity that draws us into community.
Not to be alone.
Connection is essential we cannot do without togetherness.
Isolation crushes creativity.
What has been our life line in the creativity of technology will remain as an extension of connection to what will be our greatest desire of the community of church family in the real.
We learn from times when we are stripped of what we need exactly what our needs are. We discover what to value.
We discover what drives us.
Things stop when we unplug them from their source.
Knowingly or not our source is God our creator.
We are designed in His image.
He created the world and is ready to repossess what the enemy has been cuckooing and ruling over.
He created us who the enemy has wooed to be captivated by his masquerading temptations and deceit of false freedom.
We have come to a stop.
We have become stuck in our creativity.
Just as with any creators block we have become disconnected from our source.
In bondage to another and other principalities.
The very needs that we have becoming a stumbling block to our executing the resolve because we are not machines.
To live our better life our mind, body and spirit require reconnection with our true source.
This pivotal, transformational time reforms us.
We relate to sadness and loss only when we have experienced it.
We recognise redeeming and regaining only when what has died comes back to life and being in full measure.
Our endless resource of creation comes from a higher place.
When we get over ourselves and look up and hold our hands up to be lifted into that place we are restored.
No longer isolated but part of a crowd created to be United and holy.
Part of a body with Christ as the head.
Part of the promise with God as the Glory.
Part of the power with the Holy Spirit as our fire.
Part of the word with the creation.
Part of the bride with Christ as our bridegroom
Part of a kingdom here on earth and eternal in heaven.
Part of Light prevailing and darkness gone.
The illustration shows the plug as the source to be plugged into.
The three prongs as the Trinity.
Jesus at the centre.
Light pushing back the darkness.
Six Scriptures that come to mind:
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes all around, and see; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried on the hip. Isaiah 60:1-4
The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give you light; but the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun shall no more go down, nor your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning shall be ended.”Isaiah 60:19-20 ESV
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”Habakkuk 2:14 ESV
“and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things,”Ephesians 3:9 ESV
“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.”Romans 8:19-22 ESV
