“And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, “
Be one but be individual and cast off all restraints to be controlled.
The Lord God is one but is made up in a Trinity where there is diversity.
The Loving, mighty all encompassing powerful “I am” God.
The creative, birthing, speaking into being, Servant and King Jesus Christ.
The feminine, sensitive, discerning comforting Holy Spirit.
The divine flow of that Trinity gives the very rhythm and momentum of life in equal measure.
Like the water wheel as one cup fills and overflows it fills the next and the rotation is only possible in the Three.
Each moved by the previous into its action.
Into reliance and therefore oneness.
Two would be static in its dualism of either/or.
The Spirit discerns how each one of us needs to flow from our own heart as uniquely as we have been uniquely designed.
It breaks God’s heart if we become confined and straight jacketed into anyway that restricts that Freedom.
Jesus came to liberate and free the captive and the enemy tries to control, confine and imprison.
In heaven each brings their own beauty and song and the diversity layers into harmony and a symphony of sound praising in adoration freely given up in abandonment.
In hell the enemy enslaves and enforces praise for himself which is ugly, monotone and tone less, controlled, grating, conformed, uniformed, prescriptive, dictated and demanded.
Worship on earth as in heaven is God’s will and desire for us.
We are here for Him no other and willingly submit
The enemy has robbed and squatted in us and our domain and gagged and brought pain to us and church for too long.
Time to prepare to advance, defend and occupy our territory again.
Time to cast off all restraints, kick of shoe and be welcomed home.
To dance, sing draw round the table and own our freedom.
Moulded into new vessels.
Spoilt only to be recrafted into better.
God reconstructs to bring about what is perfect.
God reaches over the edge for our hands to pull us up to His realm of governance.
In new found reverence and fear.
Heirs with Jesus.
Friends of God.
We are unlocked, un leashed ready to bear and carry the new glory of God forward.
The illustration shows The consuming fire of the Holy Spirit and the leaning over from heaven to reach the hand and pull us up and home. The darkness dispersed by light.
Three Scriptures that come to mind:
“And when they come there, they will remove from it all its detestable things and all its abominations. And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their mGod.”Ezekiel 11:18-20 ESV
“Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.”Hebrews 12:12-13 ESV
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”Isaiah 9:6 ESV
