BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 396. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

There’s a blessing in encountering and sharing in the love and emotions of God and a sense of being greatly privileged that He our creator would partner with us intimately like a friend.

He does so to empower us to be proactive in our intercession, our proclaiming and decreeing to shift atmospheres and to warfare in the spirit. Individually, as a church and community.

To be purposeful and partner we have to watch the news. We are in this world if not of it and therefore need to know what is going on and how to contend with the emotion of Jesus in our hearts.

We can ask Jesus what His response is in all aspects and He will bring us revelation to apply to the world’s information.

He will convict us.

The more we align and draw close to Him the more we discover our emotions becoming simultaneously aroused and we respond instinctive in our unity of mirroring Him on and in us.

We pull back always and seek where God is and, for example, instantaneously know when a seemingly authoritative figure instructs his nation not to forgive, that this is not from God and is therefore of the enemy.

Not only can we prevent ourselves from being slimed but those we converse with and share opinions with and equally we have ammunition to contend against the enemy spirit in spiritual warfare and prayer.

When we sense a pervasive atmosphere of sorrow it is important to discern if it is God sharing His sorrow in the spirit as a black cloud as opposed to the black oily slick of tar that the enemy would hold us down with to oppress and make us powerless.

Weeping before the Lord with shared tears dissipates and lifts off the slime and tar of the enemy. It comes from a deep place where a moment or season of mourning leads to rejoicing, hope and promise.

“the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin Israel! Again you shall adorn yourself with tambourines and shall go forth in the dance of the merrymakers.”

We much prefer the upbeat victory with the Lord but there is depth in the intimacy of shared sorrow. From that proximity we push through to see something beyond.

We can be positioned to receive and to step into turning our emotion into action either physically or intercessory.

The burden is an overwhelming one if not used as a vehicle of transference.

Something that makes God bigger and us smaller. God shares with those who will steward His heart well. He reveals what He is stirring up in us. Tears may be our offering on the altar over what God is saying.

He draws us closer as the enemy attempts to pull us away.

“Little foxes”are always calling us to war. Jesus is calling us to a wedding feast.

“You must catch the troubling foxes, those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship. For they raid our budding vineyard of love to ruin what I’ve planted within you. Will you catch them and remove them for me? We will do it together.”

The distractions from the enemy start small as little things but which can grow into far bigger debilitating things that disrupted our purpose, direction and focus.

Individually or as a body we can have a traditional mindset that is reactionary, defensive and inclined therefore towards war.

The “new” calls for a mindset of resistance, endurance and being the forerunners, pioneers. Transformed by the renewing of the mind.

Focused on the invitation to the feast and not distracted over the little foxes of battles brother against brother.

“What blessing comes to you when gentleness lives in you! For you will inherit the earth. “How enriched you are when you crave righteousness! For you will be satisfied. “How blessed you are when you demonstrate tender mercy! For tender mercy will be demonstrated to you.”

The illustration shows the light emanating as we reflect and Mirror the Christ image of our likeness to Him. Light pushing back the darkness.

Four Scriptures that come to mind:
