Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face; and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
A short time when we cannot see well as but one we will soon be able to see clearer as it emerges from the mist.
What was partially seen is revealed fully.
A time when stepping close in the shadow of God, one step at a time is all that is required remaining within His protection.
A time of fluidity to camp temporarily in until discerning where to sink our new foundations.
A day with the hope and promise of the joy of a new morning.
The transfiguration was a time when Jesus was clearly revealed in all His light and beauty.
Peter recognised it to be something to hang on to and linger in but the timing was not yet and therefore the glimpse was brief but the knowledge of it was to be stored up for what was to come.
A something which subsequently would not recreate what had been before but was to progress into something more powerful and as yet unrecognisable because it had not been experienced before.
Something built by God and not by man’s understanding or design.
A sovereign move of God awaiting to unfold.
A time where we must not get ahead in our eagerness but ponder upon in our hearts and in our proximity of intimacy to hear the small voice.
Pull aside the wound on His chest and climb in to feel His heart beat and surrounding embrace.
The sense is we are only 2 minutes away.
It is close at hand.
We need to be ready.
Already instep with the Spirit.
Be ready to forget the former things and open our eyes to see.
He is doing a new thing.
Submit and be ready to transmit the new power of super charged power in tension ready to explode.
The steps out of the Babylonian grip of the worlds authority and into the Zion City on the hill where the Kingdom is revealed in all of its glory and authority.
Where there is a holy dissatisfaction for all else and a holy obsession for Jesus Christ and His kingdom where all our needs are met.
It doesn’t look like anything we would expect or preconceive.
It is a union that co – creates and births a reflection of the heart of God.
Where success is measured by the wealth of all our needs being met in Jesus.
Any other system needs ousting and need calling out as they give rise to pains and torments of this world.
Nothing is impossible with God.
His expansive divinity and sovereign will has solutions.
Solutions so much grander to every issue that it seems futile in prayer to ask for specific resolves that we perceive.
It seems increased wisdom to simply ask what He sees and let Him set us simply on a path where no side is taken and the middle path does not come under the attack of either side.
Where the focus is simply on the light ahead drawn by the Spirit like a moth to the flame.
Our soul awakening and catching up to an awareness of who we really are already.
Our nature is beginning to reflect more of Christ.
The illustration shows Jesus allowing us to touch the wound on His side and climb in to closely examine His heart and know Him intimately as all we need in every situation. Our salvation and redeemer. Our solution to all things. The light who pushes back darkness.
Six Scriptures that come to mind:
“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’”Acts 17:24-28 ESV
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.”Isaiah 43:18 ESV
“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”Isaiah 43:19 ESV
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”Ephesians 6:10 ESV
“To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maidservant to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he has mercy upon us.”Psalm 123:1-2 ESV
“Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.”Proverbs 4:25-26 ESV
